High, prominent cheekbones and a well-defined jawline, are coveted facial features and characteristics of beauty. Some people are naturally born with these high cheek bones, often characteristics seen in model portraits. With facial ageing the cheeks become flatter as a consequence of loss of facial volume and reduced facial fat. Cheek augmentation with dermal fillers can improve facial contours and balance out facial features, restoring a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing look.
The filler works by adding volume and fullness to the skin. It uses a naturally occurring substance found in the body, thus these fillers are absorbed quicker than other products. It also means that the results of such fillers are reversible.
