Hyaluronic Acid Injection
The aim of the hyaluronic acid injection is to restore the volume of the cheekbone without overfilling. The result must be natural.
This filling of the malar region helps to lift the underlying soft tissues, including improving the nasolabial folds and jowls, and smoothing the tears valley area by eliminating or reducing puffiness and bags.
One or more areas of the malar region can be injected: (see two images)
- Central malar region to raise and define the cheekbone.
- The side malar region for more up the cheek (digging the cheek) and give a definition also to the side of the cheekbone.
The injection is done with the cannula or the needle in bone contact, small amounts can be placed subcutaneously.
The quantity and type of product used are chosen according to your face. The product is often a very cross-linked volumizer type Restylane Perlane, sometimes I choose a less cross-linked volume Restylane type.
The product remains in place one and a half or two years.
