The cheekbone is the area that catches the most light in the middle third of the race, compared with the malar bone.
What is more, this is the bone that determines how much the cheek projects and therefore the tension in the oval of the face and the nasolabial folds.
The current demand is to treat the face as a whole, for natural results whose aim is to fight aging.
But, in certain cases, it is just the most prominent side of the cheekbone that needs treating in order to enhance the facial contours and preserve the famous triangle shape, which is synonymous of beauty and youth.
Treating the cheekbones involves injecting resorbable filler products such as hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxyapatite (Radiesse®) in order to restore or enhance the volumes in this area, making it look higher and more rounded.
Injections into this area are often combined with injections into the tear trough, in order to treat the middle third of the face as a whole and make it catch the light better and give it more vitality.
The amounts required for optimum treatment depend on the medical diagnosis established before treatment.
The fee to treat this area varies, starting at 400 euros per millilitre injected (equivalent to one syringe of filler product).
