As you age, your cheeks naturally lose some of the volume that gives your face a youthful appearance. Sun damage, genetics, and aging can all cause a breakdown of collagen and skin elasticity, leading to a hollowed, tired appearance. Additionally, sagging skin can lead to deep smile lines, nasolabial folds, and jowls. Cheek volumization is a nonsurgical facial procedure that uses injectable fillers to add fullness to these areas and restore the structure of your face.
Dr. Danielle DeLuca-Pytell is an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon who seeks to make the cosmetic treatment experience as comfortable as possible. To learn more about cheek volumization in Troy, call our office and set up a consultation.
