Dr. Dean Kane Answers Question Regarding What is The Best Cheek Filler

Q: What is the best mid-cheek filler for filling the CK2 region? My doctor recommended Restylane Refyne. Is this a safe choice?

A: With the pervasiveness of hyaluronic acid gel and other fillers flooding the market, we are able to pick and choose which filler is best for a particular desired effect; volume, firmness, elasticity, fluidity, projection and other characteristics.

Under the eye, the cheek extends from the nose to the ear with an upward tilt. It should be the widest dimension of the youthful face creating a light reflection line near parallel to the jawline.
 
To me it appears like an ice cream cone. The ball projecting fullest under the eye with a swooping “nike” swoosh to the ear along the cone. Under the cheek, there is the submalar hollow and shadowing.
 
For those “depot or point” injectors,  Ck3 point is the middle of the ice cream ball. Fillers need to provide larger volumes and projections. Restylane Lyft and Juvaderm Voluma provide those attributes better than Restylane Refyne (which is great for elasticity and fine fill along creases and lines).  “Linear” injectors will provide more of a three-dimensional injectional technique in the cheek area.
 
As injectables (botox, fillers, threads) permeate into the anti-aging, minimally invasive cosmetic space, choose your talented and experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or Injector carefully. These are advanced techniques to reach your desires and expectations.
 
I hope this is helpful. All the best!
