Runner’s face is the new term being used for the facial appearance many avid endurance athletes such as long-distance runners attain. There is typically a hollowed-out cheek area and a more prominent bony anatomy due to the loss of facial fat.
This gaunt appearance can be combated with facial fillers such as Radiesse, Juvederm, and Restylane. In addition, fat injection can also play a longer-term role to treat Runner’s Face. Seek a trained surgeon or injector to obtain the result you want.
