Everyone ages in different ways, and the fat pads of the cheeks are one of the first to show an aging appearance. With the effects of skin laxity, loss of collagen, and general volume loss, the cheeks can lose definition and become hollow-looking. Fortunately, there are advanced cosmetic solutions that can restore the volume lost to aging in a simple, non-surgical procedure.

What is Restylane Contour?

Restylane Contour is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that’s used for filling out the mid-face to reduce the appearance of volume loss and wrinkles. It’s a thicker gel-like substance that is designed specifically to fill out the softer, more flexible parts of the face. Like other Restylane fillers, Contour is made with XpresHAn Technology that doesn’t interfere with your natural facial expressions, many of which involve the muscles in your cheek and jaw.

What to Expect with Restylane Contour

Restylane Contour injections are simple, quick, painless procedures that require no downtime. Our dermatologists use ultrafine needles for the most precise injection into specific areas throughout the cheek for the most natural-looking results for every patient. We’re committed to ensuring that we don’t “over-do” your fillers so you won’t look over-done after Restylane Contour treatment.

The whole procedure takes only about 45 minutes, so it’s easily done during an hour-long appointment, or even your lunch break.

Restylane Contour Results

The results from Restylane Contour or any other dermal filler injection are usually immediately noticeable, although the formulas do take some time to “settle” into place. The final results of your cheek filler treatment are usually visible after about a week following your appointment.

The Side Effects of Restylane Contour

Dermal fillers come with a few known side effects, almost all of which dissipate within hours or just a few days. Immediately after treatment, you can expect a little swelling throughout the cheek area and mid-face region as the skin adjusts to the filler, and some people experience bruising due to the injections, which is superficial and resolves itself quickly. Because we have highly experienced dermatologists performing the injections, the risk of bad side effects is low.
