Injecting cheeks with hyaluronic acid – this is how it works!

Accentuated cheekbones, a defined jawline and a V-shaped face – the “top model” look with strong contours is still popular. Contouring and injecting cheeks can be the beauty secret to individually defining facial features. But what methods can be used to achieve defined facial features? The specialist in surgery, Dr. Sina Djalaei reveals which beauty treatments can provide clear contours and new freshness.

“Many patients want the ‘top model look’ with perfect contours,” reveals the specialist. Especially accentuated cheeks and a defined jowline characterize this look, as the specialist for minimally invasive treatments explains: “For the attractiveness and harmony of the face, the zygomatic arch in the cheek area plays a particularly important role, because it provides contour.”

The problem: As we age, the body reduces fatty tissue, and in addition, the volume of the face sinks downward due to gravity. As a result of this so-called sagging effect, nasolabial and marionette folds can appear deeper, and facial features can look sad and tired. However: Filler treatment can correct missing or lost volume in the cheek area.

“By performing a treatment with hyaluronic acid fillers at specific points on the zygomatic arch, the doctor can bring important ligaments under tension and lift the midface again,” explains Dr. Djalaei. The result: “The cheekbones can be emphasized, and at the same time an uplifting effect can occur. The shape of the face thus usually approaches an upward, youthful and alert V-shape again and thus the ‘top model look,'” says the expert.

Cheek injections with hyaluronic acid stimulate collagen formation

The nice side effect: treatment with hyaluronic acid fillers also stimulates the body to produce new collagen, which improves the elasticity of the skin and connective tissue. In addition to an experienced doctor, the treatment also requires a suitable filler.

“In addition to excellent quality, durability and tolerance, the filler must have strong lifting power, especially in the zygomatic arch, such as the Juvéderm® Voluma® filler.” After treatment, patients can enjoy results that can be visible for up to 24 months. In addition to accentuated cheeks, a defined jawline also gives a beautiful contour.

However, “Volume loss in the cheeks and sagging of the tissue can make the chin line appear spongy,” explains Dr. Djalaei. “In addition, sagging cheeks and a double chin can develop, which patients find bothersome.” The good news is that this sagging in the lower half of the face can be corrected with hyaluronic acid fillers. “Treatment with Juvéderm® Volux™ facial filler is ideal for many who want a firmer, contoured chin and jawline.”

The filler is specifically designed to build volume and define the jawline and is optimized for the unique stresses on the chin and jawline. The result: “The treatment can achieve a clear delineation between the chin, jawline and neck and model an improved facial angle that approaches the ‘top model look’. Clear contours can make the entire face appear more defined and fresh,” the specialist explains. Patients can usually enjoy a quickly visible beauty result that can be visible for up to 18 months – completely without surgery, completely without anesthesia.
