The natural processes of aging can gradually slow your skin’s natural collagen production. This can cause your skin to sag and look sallow. This effect can be compounded by changes in body composition from significant weight loss or the natural reduction in muscle mass that occurs for many people in their 40’s and 50’s.

If you would like to plump key features of your face or hands, you might want to ask your surgeon, Dr. Oliver P. Simmons, about the benefits of dermal filler injections. The injection often comes in the form of hyaluronic acid, which has been approved for use by the Food and Drug Administration.

This can effectively plump facial features like the cheek, lips, forehead, brow ridge and chin. Some people even opt to accent areas around the nose. At the same time, hyaluronic acid dermal fillers can also be used to address hands that look sallow or boney.

The injection can be provided in a brief outpatient appointment at Simmons Plastic Surgery. The duration of the treatment will vary depending on the body part and the total volume of the injection. Regular tobacco use can also affect the tone of the skin and reduce the duration of the results.

If you would like to accent specific features on your face or hands, you should call Dr. Oliver P. Simmons at 803-490-7644 to ask about hyaluronic acid dermal fillers in Lexington, South Carolina.
