Sunken Cheekbones

As we age we lose volume within the cheek bone (or zygoma) itself and this, combined with loss of elasticity of the soft tissues of the face results in sunken cheekbones and a drooping effect. At Hedox Clinic our Harley Street Consultants focus on simply replacing lost volume and resist the urge to add larger volumes. In this way you can look like a younger version of yourself. Our cheek filler treatment is tailored differently for each person and can have a desirable and natural impact on the anatomy of face without looking overdone.

Why do I have sunken cheeks?

As we age, our skin loses its natural elasticity and begins to thin and sag, but at the same time, the actual size of the bones of the face shrink as well. This leads to sunken cheekbones that can significantly alter the look of the face and the facial contours. The gradual decline in collagen and elastin is an important cause of sunken cheeks. Reductions in collagen, elastin and the size of the bone can make someone appear gaunt and tired-looking, with a hollow and skeletal look in the face. However, these changes are not the only culprit. The body also stops producing as much subcutaneous fat, which would normally make the cheeks bright and plump. Environmental factors such as poor diet, illness, and smoking and drugs may also accelerate these processes.

How can I treat sunken cheeks?

Fortunately, treatment with hyaluronic dermal fillers can restore fullness to sunken cheeks in a very natural-looking way and help to turn back the clock. Dermal fillers are a type of injectable cosmetic treatment that can help to refresh the face and create a more plump and youthful appearance. By placing dermal fillers into both sides of the face and paying careful attention to areas of concern, volume can be restored in the cheeks. At Hedox Clinic, Dr Humble and Dr Basi use award-winning Teoxane fillers and they inject the thickest hyaluronic acid fillers directly onto the cheekbone itself. This means that they achieve very natural results as they are simply replacing lost volume and also that the effect may last 18 months, making it excellent value.

Are dermal fillers good for sunken cheeks?

One of the biggest advantages of dermal fillers is that they can be used to address specific areas of concern. This means that treatment can be tailored to suit the individual needs of each patient, ensuring that the results are natural-looking and long-lasting. Another advantage of dermal fillers is that they are minimally invasive and can be performed in-office, with little to no downtime required, thus they may be a much better option than a surgical facelift. Indeed, dermal filler treatment to the cheeks can be an integral component of a bespoke non-surgical facelift.
