See a wrinkle, you might think fillers. And you could be right. However, you might also be surprised at just how a gifted injector will use fillers to treat all kinds of facial imperfections. For instance, if you have jowls that are bothering you, filler treatments in the cheek could be the answer. In fact, injections in the jowls might be counterproductive and leave you very disappointed. Filling the cheeks could do the trick to correct the sagging in the lower face.
This type of work is called anatomic filling. Replacing volume loss with injectable products like Juvederm, and Voluma can restore youthfulness to the face. It’s very important that you choose an injector who can see wrinkles and sagging skin in tandem and not in isolation. These practitioners understand how volume loss affects the surrounding skin, and they treat the entire face (not holistically) to restore balance, symmetry and volume.
A young face has the “triangle of youth,” meaning it is broader at the cheeks just under the eyes and narrower at the chin. Over time, as the face ages, the triangle is inverted. As skin starts to sag, jowls begin to form at the jaw line. Fillers can counteract that aging process by restoring fullness to the cheek, which brings the facial skin back in line with its original and more youthful position. This also softens nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines (creases running from the corner of the mouth to the chin) and jowls.
You might also still need direct injections, but the best injectors understand the entire facial structure and exactly what they need to do to provide a gentle lift that looks natural.
