When it comes to cheeks, volume has been all the rage for the past few years. For many people, volume IS what’s needed to create a more youthful look. As our skin ages and collagen and elastin not only break down but their rate of renewal slows as well, we begin to notice a subtle “deflation” of our facial features. Those beautifully round apples of our cheeks begin to flatten and, as a result, we can appear tired and older than our years. Restoring volume can make a dramatic difference to the fullness and lift of the midface, but it’s important to note that volume isn’t EVERYTHING when it comes to your cheeks. The contour of your cheeks also plays a vital role in creating a more youthful-looking you, and a new dermal filler offered at Skin Artisans is approaching it from all angles!

Restylane Contour

Skin Artisans is excited to now offer Restylane® Contour by Galderma, the manufacturer of Dysport® and Sculptra® Aesthetic. Approved by the FDA for cheek augmentation and midface contour deficiencies in adults over 21 years old, hyaluronic acid-based Restylane® Contour is the first and only product in the United States to use Galderma’s proprietary XpresHAn Technology™ for the cheeks. XpresHAn allows the gel to move smoothly and naturally as the face makes dynamic expressions like smiling. Outside of the U.S., it’s known by another name, Restylane® Volyme, and has been used since 2010 on more than 1.5 million patients worldwide.

The cheeks are indeed the cornerstone of our faces. Addressing BOTH volume loss and contour in our cheeks results in more dynamic expressions that amplify your natural beauty. Restylane® CONTOUR is flexible and moves naturally within the skin, allowing for facial expressions that move with you and don’t appear static.
