If you are a Maryland resident who has started to notice signs of facial aging, you may be wondering if treatment with cheek fillers is right for you. There are a number of cheek fillers available that can help add and restore volume to the cheeks and smooth away fine lines and wrinkles in the cheek area.
Cheek fillers often make great alternatives to traditional surgery, offering significant results without the need for sedation or downtime in most cases. Another advantage to having treatment is that it provides noticeable results that appear very soft and natural, unlike some cosmetic procedures that can lead to an unnatural appearance.
What are Cheek Fillers?
Cheek fillers are simply a type of treatment sometimes known as dermal fillers that are used to add or restore volume to the cheek area for patients who have lost cheek volume due to the aging process or extreme weight loss. This treatment is a great opportunity to significantly enhance the appearance of your cheeks without creating any incisions that may require a significant amount of downtime to recover from.
What Causes a Loss of Cheek Volume?
When you grow older or have lost an extreme amount of weight, it is not uncommon to lose volume in the cheek area, which can also lead to the development of lines and wrinkles in this part of the face. Since prominent cheeks are one of the signs of a youthful appearance, the loss of cheek volume can make you appear significantly older than you actually are. It turns out that restoring cheek volume is not that difficult using minimally-invasive treatment techniques that have a low incidence of side effects.
A Note About Hyaluronic Acid
The gradual loss of a substance called hyaluronic acid is a major factor in skin aging and the loss of cheek volume. This unique substance has a strong affinity for water, absorbing and binding many times its own weight in water molecules. Skin that is hydrated is also fuller and rounder.
If you have recently noticed a loss of cheek volume and an increase in lines and wrinkles in this part of your face, you may make a good candidate for cheek fillers. Most patients will notice results right away. Keep in mind that the aging process will continue normally, and you will require periodic follow-up treatments in Maryland in order to maintain your results.
