What Are Cheek Fillers?


Gravity and Time


Gravity and time have a serious effect on our facial contours. As we get older, we lose volume in our cheeks. We don’t produce as much collagen and elastin, those proteins that provide the structure and resilience of our skin. Sun exposure doesn’t help.

As a result, those plump cheeks we used to have started to deflate and droop. Maybe age hasn’t changed your face, but you wish you had more definition to your cheekbones. You’ve admired that high-cheekbone look of fashion models. You know that shadow from those cheekbones would give your face a slimmer look. Cheek fillers can help create the face shape you want. They are primarily made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a molecule that naturally is produced in our tissues.

Additional Reading

In addition to collagen and elastin loss, hyaluronic acid also decreases over time and with exposure to the sun and pollutants. You probably have at least one serum or moisturizer that contains this important substance. The benefits of it are numerous, but especially in keeping the skin hydrated. Cheek fillers inject small amounts of HA under the skin to provide volume, by filling out your cheeks or adding to the appearance of your cheekbones. Dr. Namita Murthy offers cheek fillers in Annapolis with talent and attention to creating natural results that help you become the best version of yourself.

Benefits of Cheek Fillers

Cheek fillers were created to restore volume to your face and create more definition to the cheekbones. In addition, they can be used to provide balance and symmetry to your face. As important, they can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. If your skin has become stretched and your cheeks are sagging, cheek fillers can revitalize your face. Cheek fillers are available from Dr. Murthy, an American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery fellowship-trained physician.
