My Doc put Perlane onto my cheekbone & not into the skin. Any suggestions?

Lyft for Cheeks
Radiesse for augmentation of the cheekbones
My product of choice for augmenting the cheeks over the bones is Radiesse.
Perlane can be used but less effectively.

The firmer the filler, the deeper the placement
Firm fillers placed too superficially will not feel natural and may not "move" the same as natural skin and that is why they are injected at a deeper level. They tend to be more for volume support.
Associated collagen stimulation is not particularly evident with hyaluronic fillers. You will see collagen stimulation with Sculptra and to a much lesser degree Radiesse.
Voluma tends to be more expensive than Perlane (rebranded this past year as Restylane Lyft) but has studies indicating more longevity.
The younger you are, the longer a filler tends to provide effect since your own collagen breakdown is not high. As you age, natural collagen breakdown increases and collagen production decreases.
