When sagging occurs due to ageing or weight loss, the cheeks move from their position under the eyes to further down the face. This can cause a sad or tired look. Sagging is caused by a steadily decreasing level of collagen and elastin, the elements of our skin that provide its firmness and elasticity.
A study of 20,000 people around the world revealed that women with high cheekbones are deemed more attractive. Although flat cheeks are not harmful, women often choose to enhance their cheekbones with aesthetic treatments, such as dermal fillers.
We provide treatments for flat cheeks at Harpenden Skin Clinic.
