The reason that injection of filler in the cheek can be so powerful is down to the way the face ages
When we are young we have a full, healthy layer of fat that lives below the skin and gives the face its youthful fullness.
As we age, this fatty layer diminishes which leads to the appearance of deflation of descent of the cheek and face. This process typically begins in the early 30s and accelerates throughout the forties and into the fifties. Restoring this volume loss can be one of the most gratifying procedures to perform in aesthetic practice – but, like all aesthetic procedures, the experience and aesthetic judgement of the doctor is key to achieving an attractive and, most importantly, natural looking result.
