Enhance your Facial Contours and Smooth Wrinkles
Improve the overall balance and restore youth
Dermal Fillers in combination with a
Great strategy to address both loss of volume, as well as, laxity without surgery.
As we age, we start to lose fat in our faces, including the cheek area. As the fat in the cheek shrinks, the face becomes hollow and sunken in appearance. Cheek Contouring can restore the proper triangular angles to the face and if desired, they can also create a more glamorous look.
Cheek augmentation and Cheek contouring
Cheek augmentation and Cheek contouring involves placing the right filler in an area to create a healthy-looking, youthful appearance without surgery. A cheek lift using dermal fillers can also lift
the weight of the aging nasolabial fold (parathesis around the mouth), so fewer fillers are needed in the central face.
Very often, as part of the cheek contouring and augmentation, we may also may suggest the use of PDO threads in combination with dermal fillers. PDO thread lift repositions the underlying tissues to soften your facial features, producing longer results, but without complicated surgeries.
All treatments including cheek augmentation and cheek contouring should be designed individually for you based on a careful clinical exam and your desired values. The clinicians at Ithaca Medical Aesthetics
specialize in tailoring the skin treatments to the bone structure and property anatomy of the patient, as well as, ethnic considerations of what is considered natural for the ethnic features of the patient.
Cheek fillers achieve lift by making your cheekbones more prominent, pronounced and perfectly shaped. Full cheekbones are a sign of youth, but as we age, our supportive fat, collagen and elastin stores deplete in the cheeks, causing them to sag and droop. Weight loss in the face can also contribute to a lack of definition.
Hyaluronic acid replenishes lost moisture levels while filling and smoothing out sagging or hollow skin. This serves to lift the entire face. As a result, the sunken look of the cheeks disappears.
With cheekbones looking more cushioned and defined, the face is rebalanced while the gaunt look caused by weight and fat loss is eradicated.
PDO Thread facelift
One of the most effective ways to lift loose skin without surgery or downtime.
PDO threads are similar to surgical sutures that stimulate collagen synthesis when placed under the skin. The threads act as a scaffold holding the skin in place against the effects of gravity. The mesh of threads help shape the skin/face by lifting and supporting sagging structures to recontour your body.
When PDO threads are applied to the mid face, the skin is lifted to help reduce the appearance of cheek sagging, jowls, and neck laxity. This re-contouring can be accomplished without the appearance of added weight to the face
