With aging comes skin laxity that can change the facial appearance. One of the areas that has a significant impact on facial youthfulness is the upper cheeks. Lost volume and skin elasticity can allow the cheeks to flatten and droop. This can enhance bags under the eyes, create deeper nasolabial folds and reduce youthful cheek contours. At pēkomd® cosmetic surgery and rejuvenation center, we offer upper cheek skin tightening procedures to restore a youthful midface at our clinic in Toledo, OH.
Droopy cheeks contribute to a tired and aged facial appearance. As your skin laxity increases with lost collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid from the natural aging process, you can notice your cheeks descending. The loss of upper cheek volume and firmness can allow the under eye area to sink and sag, creating puffy bags, dark circles and wrinkles. The drooping cheeks also make the jowls look heavier and increase lines around the nose and mouth. Firming and tightening the midface and adding volume to the upper cheeks can give the middle third of your face a rejuvenated appearance.
Non-Surgical Cheek Lift
If you want to tighten and firm your midface and upper cheeks without surgery, there are a few non-surgical treatments available. To lift and add lost volume to the upper cheeks, dermal fillers are an excellent option. Filler injections can restore upper cheeks and smooth the transition from the undereye area to the cheekbone, reducing eye bags and wrinkles. The volume can restore more youthful contours to the cheeks and help smooth nasolabial fold lines.
Another treatment for upper cheek skin tightening is radiofrequency (RF) procedures. RF skin tightening uses thermal energy to spark an increase in collagen deep in the skin to firm and tighten skin. This can firm and lift the midface area to minimize lines and restore a youthful appearance. RF skin tightening can be combined with filler injections and other cosmetic treatments to rejuvenate the face.
