Sleeping on your face after Filler

While we prefer in theory to avoid having someone sleep "face plant in the pillow" after filler, I would say this does not exclude you from having it done. If you are having filler in the cheeks, talk to your injector about this. I believe that Restylane Lyft has one of the highest if not the highest 'G prime' of the fillers available in the US- this means it has a VERY strong tendency to bounce back to its original shape after it has been pressed on/deformed. ' Snaps back into shape' you could say. This would be a theoretically good choice for your situation.
