How to Remove Dents on Cheeks Without Surgrey?

Treatment of your dents will depend on the size, number, location and cause of the depressions. In general these contour irregularities are treated non-surgically with fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, and Radiesse or liposculpture with your own fat.
Elimination of Facial Dents
Dents in the face are usually brought about by acne, chicken pox etc. Once the condition is gone scars can be left in its place. Fortunately there are many different ways of eliminating these indentations. Juvaderm, Restylane, Perlane, and Radiesse are examples of facial injectables that can be used to fill in these depressions. They all utilize a substance called hyaluronic acid which works as a natural skin plumping agent. Another method, which uses an even more natural substance is fat grafting. With this technique fat is extracted from one part of the body (usually the abdomen) and is then transferred by injection to the preferred area. This approach, however, would require some minor surgery. Resurfacing is also a great option for achieving a smoother complexion. This can be done with specialized dermabrasion equipment or chemicals, although lasers (more specifically CO2 fractionated lasers) are thought to work best.
Cheek Indentation Treatment
Cheek indentations or depressions may be congenital or acquired. Many patients have natural cheek dimples, which they want to preserve. However, volume loss in the cheek can occur from facial aging or scarring typically. Treatment is based on the etiology of the cheek dent, but may include facial fat injections, injectable fillers (hyaluronic acid, Restylane, Juvederm, Sculptra, Radiesse), or cosmetic surgery. After a comprehensive evaluation by a plastic surgeon can he/she help determine appropriate options for you.
