The loss of facial contours and sagging cheeks is a very severe consequence of facial skin aging. Soft tissue sagging and facial contour disorder lead to noticeable changes in the appearance of the face, which cannot be counteracted by home remedies like using firming creams. Aesthetic medicine treatments are the only effective methods for face oval improvement. These treatments boil down to restoring the volume of the sunken cheeks and restoring their anatomic position. In this way, the correct face oval is restored, sagging cheeks and furrows are reduced, and the face regains its youthful appearance.
Cheek volumetry is possible without the use of a scalpel – just a small puncture with a cannula to shape the face with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is an excellent filler, which – thanks to the plastic gel form – allows you to supplement fat loss in the face, providing a very natural effect. An additional benefit resulting from the use of hyaluronic acid is in-depth hydration of the skin. Restylane Volume, or cross-linked hyaluronic acid, can be administered to fill the cheeks, resulting in cheek volumetry and reducing the visibility of so-called “hamsters” and nasolabial folds. It is also possible to apply hyaluronic acid in the region of the mandible, where the oval indentation separates the chin from the sagging cheeks. The effect of cheek modelling treatment with hyaluronic acid is noticeable immediately and lasts for about 6 – 12 months.
It is also possible to improve facial contours and rejuvenation using hyaluronic or lifting threads. PDO lifting threads on the cheeks are implanted intradermally, creating scaffolding for flaccid soft tissues. These threads are equipped with a series of microhooks that anchor in the skin and allow the lifting effect. Gradually the substance from which the threads are made, i.e. PDO, dissolute; at the same time, stimulates the synthesis of collagen fibers, which provides the effect of skin remodelling, its density and elasticity improvement. In turn, Neauvia Stimulate hyaluronic threads are linearly applied hyaluronic acid, based on skin tone vectors. Thanks to this, a lifting effect is achieved, and above all – the skin becomes firm and moisturized. The effect lasts for about 12 months. The introduction of lifting and hyaluronic threads takes place under local anaesthesia, which prevents discomfort during the procedure.
