At Lift Aesthetics, we can address this cosmetic problem using a customized treatment plan known as cheek augmentation. Cheek augmentation is a non-invasive procedure where the augmenting agent is carefully injected into the troubled areas of your skin, where it enters the deeper layers and transforms your appearance from within. There are different types of cheek augmenting agents that we use at Lift Aesthetics.
Voluma is one of the most popular solutions for sunken cheeks and wrinkles. It is made from hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in our body, giving our skin a firm and plump look. As we age, hyaluronic acid decreases, which causes our skin to become loose and develop wrinkles and fine lines.
When you inject Voluma into your cheeks, it takes just a few minutes to restore the lost volume. The result is a firmer, more supple, and youthful appearance.
There is no downtime involved, and you can immediately carry on with your day.
Before & After
Like Voluma, Restylane Lyft also uses hyaluronic acid as its base. When the solution is injected into your skin, it fills up the wrinkle-causing depressions on your skin from within, thus adding volume to your cheeks. It was approved by the FDA in 2003 for use in patients above 21 years old.
Restylane Lyft is one of the several types of Restylane, each with its own purpose. Restylane Lyft is specially designed for cheek augmentation as it can add volume to your cheeks and remove wrinkles and fine lines, while also improving the contours of your face. The result is a refreshed and youthful look.
It’s currently the only cheek filler designed with XpresHAn Technology, which facilitates the enhancement of natural contours while allowing you to retain the complete range of dynamic expressions. When injected underneath targeted areas on your cheeks, the hyaluronic acid works with the natural HA in your skin. It enhances your cheek contours and reverses the effects of age-related midface sagging. Furthermore, this filler moves naturally with your expressions, so there’s no stiffness or signs of cosmetic work.
Restylane Contour is FDA-approved for cheek augmentation in patients over 21 years of age. Clinical studies have shown that Restylane Contour improves midface contours and fullness for up to 12 months.
Sculptra is an injectable liquid that is made of poly-L-lactic acid – a synthetic form of lactic acid, a substance that your body produces after physical exercise. It is FDA approved, and since it does not contain any animal by-products or human DNA, it is completely safe to be injected into your skin.
Sculptra is great for stimulating collagen production, thus allowing your own tissue to volumize gradually. Over time, the poly-L-lactic acid in Sculptra dissipates as your own tissue takes its place. Since your own natural collagen is activated, it can take some time for results to show and may take anywhere from 4 to 6 months.
