Cheek Deflation and Descent

As we age, our cheeks lose volume and begin to sag. But there are treatments available to restore their fullness and lift.

What is Apple Cheek

The apple cheek is the flesh and fat that is around the cheek area between the lower eyelid (2cm beneath) and the nose point. It appears larger when we smile or make facial expressions, and is named after its resemblance to an apple. A full cheek gives a youthful appearance, while a deflated cheek suggests aging and tiredness. Deflated cheeks typically become more prominent with age more so than wrinkles around the eyes. Full apple cheeks are considered a symbol of happiness, energy, and friendliness.

Causes of Cheek Deflation

Inborn factors: People with sunken cheekbones may lack adequate facial support and have wide, flat cheekbones, a protruded upper jaw, and noticeable tear trough and nasolabial folds. This condition can be present from birth or develop during the bone growth process.

Aging: As we age, our cheeks lose their fullness and become saggy and sunken. This can make us look tired and older due to the loss of collagen, fat, and soft tissue.


People with sunken cheeks and deep nasolabial folds appear tired and have a sallow complexion. Drooping eyes create unsightly bags instead of cute under-eye skin.


For mild cheek deflation or small apple cheeks, use Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Filler to maintain a natural and youthful look without scarring. But for sagging full apple cheeks, Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Filler can lead to high cheekbones and nasolabial folds. Instead, use thread lift to reposition the sagging tissue to a higher position.

Hyaluronic acid offered by Skinspire Laser&Skin Clinic, is a natural substance found in tissues. It can be used as a filler in aesthetic treatments by injecting it into the skin to fill wrinkles or enhance facial features. There are no side effects, as it is naturally metabolized by the body. Repeated treatments are safe and offer long term results.

How does Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Filler work

Use hyaluronic acid to restore depressed cheeks, instantly adding volume and reshaping the face into a more youthful appearance.


Who is it for

Thread lift offered by Skinspire Laser&Skin Clinic, is a highly effective face lifting technique. It uses threads in the dermis layer to lift the face by stimulating the skin and collagen production. It can restore the skin’s lifting ability and prevent sagging. By embedding threads in a big V shape, the face shape can be instantly lifted and result in a slimmer face.

How does Thread Lift work

As we age, our skin loses elasticity, collagen and soft tissue. This can lead to a deepening of the nasolabial fold and drooping of the cheek. But don’t worry, a facial thread lift with a mild dermal filler can help. PDO threads are inserted into the deep fat layer of the cheek to lift and reposition the soft tissue, reducing the appearance of nasolabial folds and creating a more youthful look. The threads also stimulate collagen production to replenish facial volume.
