Restylane In The Cheeks: Benefits & Risks

Restylane is one of the most popular manufacturers of hyaluronic acid fillers. They make a variety of fillers to address nearly all filler areas. Their newest filler, Restylane Contour, was created exclusively for cheek augmentation. Let’s look at some of the benefits and risks of injecting Restylane in the cheeks. First, there are several benefits of Restylane cheek filler. It can enhance the facial contours, make the face look slimmer, and even provide a more youthful appearance. Obviously, based on the individual patient’s anatomy and goals, there are other personalized benefits of cheek filler. It can also address wrinkles and provide a more “lifted” look to the midface. With Restylane Contour, the filler is the perfect consistency and texture to feel and look natural.  All injections come with some basic risks, though they are fairly minimal. With cheek fillers, the risks of other injections such as infection and nerve damage also apply. Filler risks like lumps, nodules, migration, and occlusion of a blood vessel are also present. However, if you are a good candidate and see a qualified provider, the overall risk is fairly low. Your provider can also take steps to minimize risks such as using a cannula and hyaluronic acid fillers over semi-permanent fillers. To learn more and schedule a consultation with an injector, call us at 425-775-3561.
