Many people with sallow hands, sagging skin or unsightly creases are interested in dermal filler injections. One of the safest and most effective methods for improving these areas is to use Hyaluronic acid. This type of dermal filler has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

Injecting hyaluronic acid into a key area effectively reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and skin texture. This can help reduce the appearance of skin aging and hand aging.

Hyaluronic acid can also be used to plump certain facial features, including the forehead, cheeks and lips. It can also be injected under the eyes in key locations to adjust the appearance of sallow skin.
The total duration of the dermal filler treatment will vary depending on the body part and the volume injected. There are certain lifestyle choices, like tobacco use, that can have an adverse effect on your skin texture. This could shorten the duration of the effect of the dermal filler.

If you are interested in altering the appearance of a body part with a hyaluronic acid dermal filler injection in Bloomington, Illinois, you should call 309.827.3881 to schedule an appointment at Institute for Plastic Surgery.
