I have these crepe fine lines on my lower cheeks and I'm wondering what is the best treatment for this. Fillers? Lasers? (photo)

These lines are from loss of overall support/volume of face and loss of collagen/elasticity in the skin. I really like using a combination of products for these lines. First, I would start with Sculptra which builds your own collagen and helps to bring back volume and smooth the skin in this area. I would also use filler to soften the etched in lines. I like the newer filler, Refyne, which is softer and moves naturally as you animate. Additionally, I would recommend a series of microneedling procedures to improve the lines, texture, and smooth the skin. Please consult a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon experienced in these treatments. Best wishes.
Improving Fine Lines with Fillers Such as Juvederm, Restylane, Volbella, Bellafill, Radiesse and Sculptra, Radiofrequency
I recommend a combination approach for the most improvement. I recommend fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, Volbella, Bellafill, Radiesse) for the lines themselves and to create anatomical support. I also recommend Sculptra for collagen building combined with lasers, microneedling/prp for skin rejuvenation and radiofrequency, Kybella, or ultrasound for skin tightening. See an expert for a formal evaluation. Best, Dr. Emer
