Cheekbone Contouring

Page Updated:

Defined cheekbones are a sign of beauty and vitality, but not everyone is born with this highly desired facial characteristic and many have to resort to contour powder, bronzers, blushes, highlighters, and other temporary fixes with makeup. As we age our skin naturally loses volume and elasticity, which can create midface hollows and cause cheeks that were once chiseled to appear droopy or flat.

Non-surgical cheekbone contouring or cheek augmentation is a procedure performed with dermal fillers and can sculpt or restore high cheekbones by adding contour and volume without invasive surgery.1 If you weren’t born with ideal bone structure but desire well-defined cheekbones, or if you have concerns that your cheeks have lost volume due to the natural effects of aging, non-surgical cheekbone contouring can contour your face and provide a sculpted, youthful, and balanced appearance to your face.2
