Wrinkles &  Fillers

Dear Dr.

Can fillers like Restylane be used for under eye wrinkles and to generally lift the cheek area? Or are these fillers only used for lines around the mouth?

Thank you

Hi Ally, thank you for the question.

The use of non animal stabilized hyaluronic acid fillers, also known as NASHA, (such as Juvederm HV, Restylane, Hydrafill) today have definitely expanded from only filling lines, wrinkles, and grooves to exciting and dynamic uses such as rejuvenating the eye area, lifting eye brows, and restoring volume to a wide variety of areas on the face.

Cheek augmentation (mid and lateral cheek areas) and nasojugal (tear trough and around the eyes) NASHA filler restoration can have amazing end results with not only smoothing out fine lines but restoring a more youthful definition and form to the face.

Following from the above the answer to your question is yes, in the hands of an experienced injector, one can address the areas that concern you with the use of dermal fillers.
