Question : I have some broken capillaries at the tops of my cheeks. Can these by treated with the laser and is this safe given how close it is to my eyes?
Answer : Yes, broken capillaries on the upper cheeks can easily be treated with a laser and, in fact, quite successfully. There should be no danger to the eyes since we protect these with goggles during the procedure.
Question: I am looking for a way to add more definition to my cheeks. Are implants a good choice for this, or are there any other options?
Answer: Implants are a great way to add definition to your cheeks and are a permanent way to provide more volume to this area. Other options would include injectable fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm or even Radiesse for a significant, yet temporary answer to this problem. Some patients will decide to do injectable treatments to see if they like the result and if they do, they will then opt for a more permanent surgical cheek implant augmentation.
