The cheeks start to flatten and drop with age. They lose their roundness and projection. Some people become gaunt looking. Youthful faces often have better defined cheeks which sit in a higher position. The ‘tear trough’ is a shadow or a groove which extends from the corner of the eye obliquely across the cheek and can make a person look more tired. It appears to make the cheek separate into two parts.
Cheek enhancement, and treatment of the ‘tear trough’, can bring youthfulness back to a tired looking or older face. Again, this is done with an almost painless injection technique of dermal fillers especially designed for this area.
