the attractive face, the science of beauty, understood at last

Youthful Cheeks

Any woman who contours her mid–face with blush, bronzer or highlighter every day understands the importance of the cheeks to an attractive face. The cheeks are a key feature of good bone structure, which we know exemplifies beauty and attractiveness. Small, specific changes to the cheeks can have an effect that spreads to the entire face. Dr. Mabrie can subtly enhance your cheeks with facial fillers such as Restylane®, Restylane® Lyft, RADIESSE® and JUVÉDERM®, and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC in San Francisco.

The Cheeks
& The Attractive Face

The Importance of Volume

Research – along with our media and culture – tells us that high cheekbones are universally attractive. Youthful volume in the mid–face also signals vitality, health, and attractiveness. Unfortunately, as we age, the face loses volume and the cheeks begin to sag and flatten. The skin on the cheeks can start to droop and form jowls and nasolabial folds. Sagging cheeks can also contribute to hollows and shadows beneath the eyes.
