It’s not only wrinkles that reveal your age, your cheeks can too. Loss of volume in the cheeks is another consequence of aging that can show up your age. The decline in facial fat leads to hollow cheeks, and also causes skin laxity. There are many ways to treat lost volume in the cheeks, but is it best to use a variety of treatments or just one method for loss in cheek plumpness.
Treating volume loss in cheeks
There are surgical as well as non-surgical options for making your cheeks plump again, and one method is usually sufficient to improve cheek contours, and restore youthfulness.
The use of injectable fillers is a safe and effective way to augment the cheeks, and this method has a high rate of patient satisfaction. Injectable fillers are appealing because they are minimally invasive, so there is very little discomfort or downtime. Juvederm Voluma XC is an excellent choice for making the cheeks plumper.
