It’s easy to take your plump cheeks and smooth skin for granted when you are young, but as your cheeks gradually lose volume and your skin wrinkles, you realize just how much you miss your naturally contoured face. This is why age-related facial volume loss is one of the most common complaints among women over the age of 30.
However, you don’t have to live with that volume loss and simply accept it as a permanent part of your appearance. You have a few cheek enhancement options to restore and maintain the youthful plumpness you desire.
Different Reasons for Volume Loss
Hormonal changes and receding bones work together to generate the facial volume loss you’re noticing in the mirror. Hormone changes are inevitable as estrogen dips and important elements like collagen and elastin stop being produced in large quantities. Slowly but surely, your skin starts to sink as its foundation fades away. Receding bones add to this unwanted equation by causing loss of bone mass that can create a sunken look in the cheeks.
Juvederm Voluma XC: Tackle Volume Loss in the Cheeks
Juvederm Voluma XC helps to reverse age-related midface volume loss with an injection of hyaluronic acid that is very tightly cross-linked to restore volume and plumpness in your cheeks. Results are visible instantly and only get better with time. This durable injection can remain viable for two years, so you can enjoy your new, youthful appearance for a long time before returning for a touch-up treatment.
Micro-Lipo-Injection or Fat Transfer, involves taking fat from a donor area and then injecting that fat into the recipient site. This is an effective way to restore healthy, natural volume to your cheeks. Your donor site and your cheeks are cleaned and treated with a local anesthesia before the fat is withdrawn using a cannula attached to a suction device. The fat is then prepared and injected into your cheeks with another needle. It is very similar to receiving a dermal filler, but your own fat is used instead of hyaluronic acid or other ingredients. After any swelling and overfilling disappear, your free fat injection will help your cheeks look fuller, younger, and healthier.
