Dr. McCann Speaks on Fillers
Hi Ya’ll! This is the second in a series of write ups I am doing about all the amazing things we can do with fillers. I feel like most people out there don’t know what’s possible with fillers, and therefore don’t realize that we can change things that they thought they’d have to live with forever. So this week let’s talk about cheeks!
Over time, most of us feel we start to look more tired. We notice drooping of the skin on either side of our nose, sagging or dark areas beneath the eyes, and an overall downward trend of the front of our faces! Say it ain’t so! Much of this is due to the apple of our cheek sliding down the front of the face. Literally the cheek is falling! This often contributes to loss of a soft rounded cheek, loss of the look of high cheekbones, and often increased drooping lower down on the face. Look in the mirror, yes, right now. Just to either side of your nose, is it flat? Does it look better when you smile? Do you still have the soft rounded cheek of your youth? You may be experiencing this sliding phenomenon. It’s quite common, and using fillers, this can be treated.
Using the fillers Radiesse or Voluma, we can add support and fullness to your cheek to lift it to a more youthful position. This is only minimally uncomfortable and you see the effect right away! There is usually minimal if any bruising, and only minimal swelling for a few days. Radiesse is a mineral based filler, and lasts for a whole year. Voluma is Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, a bit more expensive, but it lasts 2 YEARS!!! The effect of this treatment is simply stunning. Without making you look like a different person. Look years younger in minutes. It simply doesn’t get better than this!
