As we age, our facial features begin to change as we start to lose elasticity in the facial skin. Over time, the facial will start to sag and create a droopy look and the cheeks will develop a hollowed out appearance, causing us to look gaunt and tired.
Aging, however, isn’t the only factor that may cause you to develop a sunken face. Significant weight loss, smoking, genetics, and exposure to outside elements can have an adverse effect on your face and make it look lifeless, old, and hollow.
For people wanting cheeks that appear more lifted and full, fillers can be a great option for you. When performed by a skilled surgeon, injections of Juvederm can help solve your aesthetic problems.
