Fall is here, and county fairs are well underway, complete with cotton candy, over-priced games and the iconic Ferris wheel. When walking the Midway, have you ever let one of those guys guess your age, and then were surprised when he guessed right? Even when we feel we look younger than our age, there are signs that give us away. One of those is our cheeks. As we age, we lose the subcutaneous fat in our cheeks, making faces look more narrow and sometimes even tired. It’s only natural when you think about it. After all, who doesn’t love going up to a baby and pinching their cute little chubby cheeks? Babies’ cheeks are round because they’re young and full of that healthy subcutaneous fat.
Don’t let the guy at the fair get you down. There are ways to counter the aging process, and we’re excited to offer a new product that improves the volume of cheeks without surgery. Restylane Lyft is a new formula available from Galderma that helps improve the fullness of cheeks and also camouflages lines around the mouth and nasolabial folds.
The product is a gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid. Within two months of treatment, over 95% of patients reported improvement, enjoying a more natural, youthful appearance.
If you’re interested in learning more about this new product, contact us at Penta Facial Plastic Surgery Center at 336-749- 0311. Not only will you feel more confident, but the next time you let someone guess your age, you’ll be happy to have them shout out a number years younger than your actual age.
