Question:
Can I Skip Fillers in Nasolabial Folds if Injected in Cheeks?

Answer:

We all lose volume in our cheeks with age. This causes loss of support which in turn results in the nasolabial folds to fall, causing a deeper nasolabial crease. Initially, revolumizing the cheeks is more important that filling the nasolabial fold. Advanced injectors always address flat cheeks before filling the nasolabial folds. It is an “off label” use of fillers like Radiesse and Perlane, but it is very much the standard of care. It’s important that you find a practitioner that understands and follows the proper aesthetics of facial beauty for the creation of a naturally, more attractive face. At the end of the day that’s what you’re really paying for…not the filler but the correct aesthetic knowledge of what, where and how to use the filler in such a way that your face is more attractive.
