Three Ways to Restore Sunken Facial Features With Dermal Fillers

By: Faisal Darwiche


There are few things more frustrating than hollow or sunken features. Even if you’re otherwise happy with your appearance, this can be a noticeable problem. Fortunately, there are ways to restore natural fullness without resorting to plastic surgery.

Panacea Aesthetics and Wellness Center offers trusted brands like JUVÉDERM® for natural-looking and long-lasting volume. Nurse practitioner Faisal Darwiche offers three unique JUVÉDERM formulas to help patients achieve stunning results in Newport Beach, CA. Call now to start the process and learn why so many people trust us for their dermal filler needs.

What causes a sunken appearance?

Age is the primary cause of volume loss. This is because the fat pads that provide support for our skin start to thin out and recede over time. The result is sunken cheeks, thin lips, and indented areas around the eyes. These changes can make you seem tired, sad, or angry, even when you’re not.

Other causes of volume loss include:

  • Weight fluctuations
  • Genetics
  • Sun damage
  • Smoking cigarettes

About JUVÉDERM injections

JUVÉDERM is a household name in the dermal filler world, and for a good reason. This popular injectable is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in our bodies. HA is responsible for keeping our skin hydrated and plump.

JUVÉDERM provides an instant lift once injected into the skin. Wrinkles and folds are smoothed away, and sunken areas are plumped up. Though results are temporary, they can last about a year with optimal treatment in Newport Beach, CA.

Our three unique JUVÉDERM formulas

Patients should attend a consultation at Panacea Aesthetics and Wellness Center to determine which JUVÉDERM formula is best for their needs. Nurse practitioner Faisal Darwiche can examine your problem areas and listen to your goals before making recommendations. Here is a brief overview of each:

  1. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™: This is the first and only dermal filler approved by the FDA to manage age-related volume loss in the mid-face and cheeks.
  2. JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™: This smoothes out moderate to severe lines around the mouth and nose. These wrinkles are called parentheses or nasolabial folds.
  3. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA™: Our lips tend to thin out and lose their definition over time. This injectable can restore natural contours for a fuller pout.

What does a JUVÉDERM appointment look like?

Nurse practitioner Faisal Darwiche starts by cleansing your skin to remove any excess dirt, oil, or makeup. We then use a small needle to inject the dermal filler into strategic areas of the face. The entire process is short and should not cause too much discomfort.

You may experience some redness, swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site. The side effects of JUVÉDERM injections are usually mild and resolve on their own within a week. We also provide aftercare instructions to make the most of your results.

When to schedule follow-up appointments

Panacea Aesthetics and Wellness Center creates custom plans for each patient. Since results are temporary, we usually recommend follow-up appointments every six to 12 months. The good news is that JUVÉDERM is reversible, so you’re never stuck with outcomes you don’t love.
