How to Plump Hollow Areas with Dermal Fillers

Has time robbed you of your plump, rosy cheeks? Hollow, sunken cheeks are one of the most common signs of skin aging, and they can cause a major drop in self-confidence. 

Fortunately, there are many minimally-invasive cosmetic treatments available that can firm and volumize hollow areas of the face. Dermal fillers, in particular, are among the most effective treatments around for plumping and contouring sunken cheeks. 

Why Does The Face Become Hollow in Older Age?

In your younger years, facial fat helped keep the skin firm, taut, and volumized. With the aging process, facial fat tends to shift and break down, leading to hollowed cheeks. Facial fat loss can also give the skin a thin, saggy appearance. 

How Do Dermal Fillers Plump Hollow Areas?

Most dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid to plump hollow areas of the face. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance that provides cushioning and lubrication for various tissues in the body. When it’s injected into sagging, hollow areas of the face, it volumizes and firms the skin for a rejuvenated appearance. 

Since hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body, it’s generally tolerated very well and rarely causes allergic reactions. Over time after receiving dermal fillers, the body will safely absorb, process, and remove the hyaluronic acid, at which point you can return for a follow-up treatment.
