Why Are High Cheekbones So Highly Desirable? Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry, Johnny Depp, Sophia Loren – all these celebrities have high cheekbones that we admire.
It is known worldwide that high cheekbones contribute to a more beautiful face. Cheekbones, also known as the apples of your cheeks, give facial balance and the higher it is, the more youthful you look. “It’s about proportion and expression, and something that happens in a secret language that your mind understands very deeply,” says Dan McNeill, author of “The Face: A Natural History.”
Cheeks fill out the middle portion of your face and once they flatten out, the sunken droop appearance highlights smile lines and wrinkles. Just look at your college photos and you can easily notice a substantial difference in the descent of your facial contour and features. This descent is caused by the gradual loss of collagen, fat and bone and the culprit is aging.
However, you can regain volume and height to your cheekbones with Radiesse or Voluma dermal fillers. The results are instant and you can see the immediate three dimensional changes in the proportional balance of your face. Dermal fillers act as a substitute for lost collagen and fat. Dr. Roya Javid at Coastal Valley Dermatology in Carmel | Monterey is an expert injector of dermal fillers.
