Rhone Dental Clinic Article Hollow Cheek Injection Image01 1

You can restore your face to its natural beauty with our safe and effective hollow cheek injections. These are a common problem which affects people of all ages. It is a genetic problem that causes cheeks to look hollow and sunken.
It is due to a loss of fat in the cheek area, which causes the skin to sag and the face to drop.

Hollow cheeks injection

These injections are a simple procedure that takes only few minutes. Rhône Dental Clinic cosmetic doctor numbs the area with a topical anesthetic, then injects a filler into the cheek to restore volume. The doctor massages your face to ensure that the filler is evenly distributed and is careful not to overdo it. Once you have recovered from your injections, you should notice that your sunken cheeks are gone!

What can be done for sunken cheeks?

  • Fillers can be used to fill in wrinkles and folds.
  • Hyaluronic acid injections can be used to lift the cheeks.
  • Lip Filler Injections can be used to plump up the lips.

How long do they last?

It depends of your body and your skin type but their effects should be from 6 to 12 months.

How long is the recovery period?

Immediately after receiving a dermal filler injection, you could resume a normal activity. However, we recommend you to wait at least 24 hours before exercising or engaging in a strenuous activity. Then, you have to avoid sunlight for at least 48 hours after the treatment. Indeed, it may cause redness, bruising or swelling of your face and could last up to 2 weeks (or longer if you have darker skin).

Although some people may experience side effects such as bleeding at the injection site, infection or scarring, these problems are rare thanks to modern dermal fillers such as Juvederm XC™. The latter contains hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in our bodies that helps keep skin smooth by retaining water in its structure and supporting collagen production. In addition to being safe and effective when it is used under medical supervision, there is no evidence to suggest any long-term negative effects associated with hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm XC™ or Restylane® Lyft® Gel. It would require additional intervention beyond the initial treatment plan.

How safe are the fillers?

Fillers are safe. However, their shelf life depends on the product used. Fillers are not permanent because they eventually break down and dissolve over time. The lifespan of a filler in your body on several factors:

  • The depth of the product injected into your skin
  • The type of filler used (there are many different types)
  • Whether or not you are allergic to the ingredients used in the filler.
