In the photo you can see a hollow area above the cheekbone right beside the ear. Is it safe to inject filler into this area to reduce the hollowing? The area is under the sideburn hair above the cheekbone, next to the ear. The exact location is marked in the attached photo.
Hello and thanks for posting.
This is a common area for volume loss and facial fillers injected into the temporal hollows work well. Many different types of facial fillers may be safely placed in this location.
An HA filler such as Voluma or Juvederm Ultra Plus works well in this location. For a more durable filler, Sculptra or Radiesse would fit the bill. I have also used Bellafill in the off-label region. Bellafill is a hybrid product that contains PMMA, a permanent component.
I hope that this information helps and best of luck to you!
