As you age, your skin gradually loses the ability to replenish collagen, causing skin to sag and certain body parts to look sallow. This is even more likely to happen if you’ve had significant changes in body composition after weight loss or changes in muscle mass.
One limited method to plump and restore the youthful appearance of these body parts is to have your cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Julie E. E. Kupersmith MD, inject a dermal filler of hyaluronic acid. Since it has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration, you can trust that the injection is safe.
The injections can be applied to key areas to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while also improving skin texture. This can help reduce the appearance of skin aging and hand aging. It can also be used to plump certain facial features, such as the lips and forehead. It can also be used as an eye filler or to mitigate sallow skin under the eyes.
The duration of the dermal filler effect will vary depending on the body part, the volume injected and key lifestyle choices you make. Your surgeon can help you understand any other aftercare requirements at the time of injection.
