Do you have heavy creases on either side of your mouth? Also known as nasolabial folds, these creases can make us appear older, more tired, and less vibrant than we used to in our youth. But before you start “googling” what type of filler to have injected into your nasolabial folds, we ask you to stop and look at another facial feature that might be causing (or contributing to) this problem first…your cheeks!
We all love the chubby, rounded cheeks of children. While they do provide an irresistible feature to reach out and pinch, our cheeks also serve us with another function: they support and lift the soft tissue and skin of the lower face as well. Look into the mirror, turn at a slight angle and observe the “roundness” of your cheek. It should curve, just like one side of a heart shape. If it’s flat or there is little roundness, then that is a big part of what is causing a heavy nasolabial fold. Now, face the mirror head-on again and gently lift your cheek using the edge of your index finger. Look at that fold now! It’s much better, huh?
Radiesse is a dermal filler that can work wonders to lift and sculpt the cheekbone area. As we get older we not only lose the underlying fat and soft tissue in the middle portion of our face, but we can also have some bone loss there too that contributes to a “flatter” cheek. Radiesse is a thick, viscous gel comprised of calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres that can be placed right on the cheekbone, or very deeply within the cheek to help replace lost volume and stimulate your body’s own collagen production.
Radiesse can dramatically reshape the cheekbones, providing improved facial contour, fullness, and most importantly structural support for the lower face. Please take a moment to review the before and after photos below of a patient treated with Radiesse in the cheek areas below. By simply recreating volume in the cheek area, you can drastically alter and improve the appearance of your entire face by recreating youthful, soft fullness and contour.
