“I felt my cheeks needed something but wasn’t ready for a surgical procedure. Dr. K injected my cheeks which gave me the fullness and lifting vision I was looking for. The procedure was quick, pain free and results where immediate.”

Dr. Kulbersh is injecting Restylane dermal filler into the cheeks of his patient in Charlotte, NC.

Restylane Contour is the latest hyaluronic acid filler (HA) from Galderma, the makers of all Restylane products, such as Restylane Lyft. Designed specifically for cheek augmentation and midface contouring, Restylane Contour can restore lost volume to hollow cheeks and sculpt midface contours.

Formulated with Galderma’s proprietary XpresHAn Technology™, Restylane Contour is uniquely suited for cheek augmentation and midface sculpting. This innovative technology increases the filler’s flexibility, allowing it to blend in naturally with your facial tissues.

While some dermal fillers can look stiff and immobile during dynamic facial expressions, XpresHAn Technology encourages the gel to move with your face. As a result, Restylane Contour looks subtle and natural once it integrates into your tissue.

Restylane Contour treats midface volume loss. Not only does the filler minimize the signs of aging, it can also sculpt the cheeks for enhanced definition. Common treatment areas for Restylane Contour include:

  • Hollow cheeks
  • Deep laugh lines
  • Volume loss in the cheeks and midface
  • Poor cheekbone definition

Thanks to its flexibility and viscosity, Restylane Contour is an ideal anti-aging treatment for men and women of all ages. It can help sculpt the cheekbones for younger adults experiencing mild volume loss just as well as it can fill deep facial creases in older adults.

Your initial consultation is the perfect time to talk to our team about your desired results. Your concerns and treatment goals are our top priorities. Next, we perform an evaluation of your face.

Restylane Contour contains a mixture of lidocaine, a mild anesthetic, to minimize pain. However, our team may also apply a topical numbing cream for your comfort. Finally, we inject the medication into the predetermined areas. We use a micro-cannula, rather than a traditional needle, resulting in less pain and fewer side effects. The entire treatment takes about one hour when numbing cream is used, while the injections typically take about 10-15 minutes.
