Went to my dermatologist's annual open house holiday party and had a free consult with an Allergen rep. She said my malar pads were getting more pronounced (which is true) and to treat them you can use Voluma to help disguise. It is a form of edema under the skin on the cheekbone area.
In doing my research I see this is true and they are very hard to get rid of. Heredity, too much sun, salt and alcohol all play a huge part (although I am not much of a drinker at all), the rest is prob valid haha.
It says that filler to lift and feather out edges helps, milk thistle supplements and also lymph tissue massage.
Has anyone had any success is reduction or elimination? Also does anyone have a tissue massage technique for this area?
Although I don't like focusing on the negatives, I did win some free botox, products and juvaderm so that helps!!!!
TIA everyone and happy holidays!

Mine are hereditary and they started becoming noticeable when I entered my forties. I keep it check by doing facial exercise, Lightstim, and lymph massage, gua sha. However, if I overeat salty food or sleep the wrong way they can get really noticeable. Other than what you described, and maybe a cheek lift might help. Hopefully someone else has some suggestions we can try.

This looked interesting:

Thank you! How do you perform your lymph massage? I do have milk thistle on the way which I am trying next.

Hi Annie! I ordered the milk thistle too! Laughing I want to get at it from all angles.

I just started doing the gua sha facial a few months ago and I really like it. I was doing Tanaka massage which was fine, but this one leaves my face glowy.

I use a large spoon I got from the Asian grocery store. Whatever you use cannot be sharp at all. Here is some info. about it and this is pretty much the technique that I follow:

I can see myself doing this for many years to come and I don't say that too often with a lot of the things I try.

Oh, and the other lymph massage, Tanaka Massage, can be found on you tube and it's very easy to follow. I like this one too!

Thank you, going to give that a try. It looks easy enough. Do you use a lotion or oil or do this on a dry face? Also Noni sent me a link to Peta on You Tube so going to be watching that as well.

I always use oil. Any type will do.

I like Peta. She's got tons of exercises available. She has something about malar pads where she had a woman use ultrasound and light therapy with good results.I had forgotten about that until I saw her name in your post. I have a little ultrasound machine, one of the original ones from Truth in Aging. I use it 2x per week but to be honest, not sure if it does anything.
