if cheek bones were filled out it would pull up loose skin under eyes ?????
Can Restylane Be Used to Fill Eye/Cheekbone Area?
Doctor Answers (17)
Restylane is great for cheeks.
Restylane is a wonderful filler for the cheek area. Many patients do not realize that one of the reasons that their face looks older is that they have lost the smooth sweeping curve from the lower eyelid to the cheek area. When we are younger are face has long smooth curves. As we age we develop hills and valleys. Fillers, like Restylane, allow your cosmetic surgeon to recreate the smooth curves of youth.
Restylane for lower eye area
Restylane is an excellent filler for the eye and cheek area. It is technically more demanding to do injections in this area. The surgeon should have a good knowledge of the anatomy and location of the larger blood vessels, to avoid bruising; also an artistic eye is required.
For example, just augmenting the cheek area in a patient with hollowness of the eye area can produce an even more hollow appearing eye!
If properly administered, Restylane will indeed fill up folume and reduce the crepiness of the skin. Of course, Restylane cannot do deep restructuring the way a facelift or cheeklift can do, nor can it remove surface irregularities, dead skin and actinic damage the way lasers can.
Restylane for Eyelids and Cheeks
Restylane is a safe, time proven injectable that offers excellent results for improving lower eyelid and cheek contour. When treating lower eyelid hollowness, Restylane is preferred over the thicker version, called Perlane.
Perlane is more useful for soft tissue cheek contouring. Another product, Radiesse may be better suited for augmenting the bones of your cheek.
Both Restylane, Perlane, and Radiesse can be used together to offer optimal results.

Restalyne to fill eye and cheek area
Yes restalyne can be used to fill the eye and cheek area quite nicely. The two major considerations are 1) that it be done by an experienced individual so that the placement is correct and that it looks natural. 2) that the patient understands that the treatment is temporary and will need to be repeated every 2 to 6 months depending on the individual.
Restylene is the best filler for under the eyes.
Restylene is the preferable filler for infraorbital troughs because it does not leave a blue discoloration under the skin. Any filler can be used on the cheekbones, including Radiesse, Juvederm Ultra Plus, or Perlane. I have used all three products and get wonderful results. Radiesse diluted very thinly also works well for infraorbital troughs because the filler is white so it helps with dark circles.
Loose skin under eyes
usually facial volume restoration does not help the crepiness of the lower eyelid skin by treating the cheek. Sometimes filling the infraorbital area helps but this is an area that superficial correction can leave lumps. Laser resurfacing of the lower eyelild skin may be better for this area and done in addition to fillers in other areaas.
Making the Eyelid / Cheek junction Younger and more Attactive
Restylane is my preferred product for the upper cheek lower lid junction region. I find it a bit more forgiving and more malleable in this region.
Restylane or Juvederm can be used on lateral cheek areas
These fillers do work well for filling age related loss of volume in and around the lateral aspects of the cheek, cheekbone and temporal hallows. Occasionally filling these areas will impact others positively such as the nasolabial folds.
