Hyaluronic Acid Injection
The injection of hyaluronic acid aims to volumise the cheekbone, without excessively filling it. The result must stay natural.
There is also a second advantage to this treatment, as filling the malar region helps to lift the soft, underlying tissues, notably helping to improve nose-chin furrows and the jowls, and smoothing the tear trough area by eliminating bags.
Injections can be administered to various zones of the malar region : (pictures)
– Only the malar zone to lift and define the cheekbone.
– The malar and overlying region to further lift the cheek as well as defining the side of the cheekbone.
Injection is administered by cannula or by needle in contact with the bone, some small amounts can be placed in the sub-cutaneous layer.
The quantity and type of product used are chosen according to your face. The product is often a Restylane Perlane thicker, volumising product, but sometimes I choose a thinner, less reticulated product like Restylane.
The product will stay in place for a year and a half, and up to two years.
