Hyaluronic acid is one type of dermal filler that has also been approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Here at Simmons Plastic Surgery our cosmetic surgeons will often advocate the use of dermal fillers to plump up or add volume to the face and other parts of the body.
Injecting hyaluronic acid into a key area effectively reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while also improving skin texture. This can help to reduce the appearance skin aging and hand aging.
Hyaluronic acid can also be used to plump certain facial features, such as the lips and forehead. It can also be used eye filler or to mitigate sallow skin under the eyes.
Like all dermal fillers, the duration that the effects last, will vary depending on the body part, the volume injected and key lifestyle choices you make. Your Simmons Plastic Surgery surgeon can help you understand any other aftercare requirements. Certain things like tobacco use can have an effect on your skin texture and could shorten the dermal fillers effectiveness over time.
If you have a part of your body that you would like addressed or improved by a dermal filler injection, please call the offices of Simmons Plastic Surgery in Lexington, South Carolina at 803-490-7644 to set up a consultation session.
