The cheekbones are an essential part of facial balance, defining the palpebral area and design the limit of the cheeks and nose. A high, full, and rounded cheekbone creates the appearance of health and youth, and optimises the eye area.
A flat, drooping cheekbone area creates the impression of age and fatigue. Well defined cheekbones are more photogenic, as celebrities know well.
A full, rounded cheekbone helps to prevent the fall of cutaneous tissue and faces with full, rounded cheekbones age less, and more slowly.
The ideal cheekbone should be neither too high nor too low, but centred on the upper jaw. It should follow a soft curve which goes from the nose to the zygomatic arcade.

With time, the cheekbone flattens due to the ptosis (dropping) of the malar fat and bone re-absorption around the upper jaw.

In youth, the face can be seen as triangle, where the base is centred on the cheekbones, but with age, the ptosis of the fat, and re-absorption of the bone causes this triangle to turn upside down.

Treatment of cheekbone with hyaluronic acid

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.

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.
