Filler for Cheeks, Smile Lines and Marionette Lines

 
Hi and thank you for your question! The best and most accurate assessment can be done by your physician, comparing your current results with your baseline pictures taken before doing any treatments. Uneven results can be adjusted after two-weeks (to make sure any residual swelling is completely gone). Also, sometimes when the swelling is active, it adds to the volume and as the swelling is going down, some patients might think that the treatment results are shrinking, while the filler is not really changing and it is the swelling that is going away. Again, nothing can replace a follow up with your physician who can address all your concerns. I hope it helps and good luck!
