Hyaluronic acid is a natural occurring substance under the skin that diminishes as we get older. Aging, heredity, and environmental factors such as the sun can influence how quickly we lose our hyaluronic acid. As we age the loss of hyaluronic acid volume within our skin results in lines and wrinkles throughout our bodies. The most socially visible part of ourselves is our face, which deflates and becomes more wrinkled the older we become. Aging hands have also been a concern for more people these days.

Medical injections such as Juvederm and Restylane injections are popular non-surgical means of restoring volume in atrophied skin that has lost the natural hyaluronic acid over time. Adding volume to contour depressions around the face, especially around the nose and mouth is a great way of fighting the aging process. Injectable hyaluronic acid dermal fillers can smooth out the valleys and wrinkles in face and hands for up to a year or so, to temporarily bring back that youthful volume.

Dermal fillers like Juvederm are a great option if you are starting to notice some volume loss in your face or hands. If you’re ready to add back some youthful volume, give us a call at North Coast Plastic Surgery at (760) 655-1414 to schedule your appointment.
