The “apples” of the cheek—the prominent and firm roundness of the cheek—sit at the highest point of the facial muscles just below the eye. As we age, this area is prone to losing volume, sagging, and an all-around diminished appearance. The Apple Lift™ is a unique and exciting cheek enhancement which takes advantage of the dermal filler Radiesse® to correct this loss.
How Does the Apple Lift™ Work?
Using Radiesse®, an injectable dermal filler, your doctor will add volume to the area of the face just below the eye, increasing the size and fullness of your “apples.” The benefits of Radiesse® continue by naturally stimulating your body’s own natural collagen and have been shown to last a year or more.
Are There Side Effects?
The most common side effects are redness, bruising, or swelling. These side effects generally last for a short time and are mild in nature. As with all procedures that involve an injection through the skin, there is a risk of infection.
