I have a line on my cheek and I was wondering what kind of cheek lift or filler I can use.

You can inject both Restylane or Juvederm (Dr Young is a filler expert in Bellevue Washington)in your cheeks.  They are both very safe when injected by someone with experience.  There are some differences in both of them.  Restylane has been approved for 6 month duration and juvederm for 9 months.  I think they are about the same in terms of length of duration in my experience ranging from 6 months to a year.  One thing to realize is the Restylane comes in 1.1 milliliters or cc’s and Juvederm comes in about 0.8-0.9 ml or cc’s.  You get a little more restylane than juvederm.  Some people think that Juvederm is smoother and results in less lumps but I think that hasn’t been the case for me.  The great thing about Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane is that you can mold these products a bit and if after 2 weeks you have some augmentation that you don’t like you can always inject some enzymes into the areas to decrease the amount of augmentation to get the very best results.

Thanks for reading, Dr Young
