Most influential, however, is the common neglect to prevent aging in the hands.

When it comes to facial filler injections, there is a common key ingredient across multiple brands and types: hyaluronic acid. While you may be familiar with the term, how much do you really understand about HA and how it works in your go-to filler?

Your skin needs HA in order to support and hydrate elastin and collagen, the two most influential elements to youthful skin. When your skin has adequate amounts of HA, it is firm, moisturized and plump. Unfortunately, our body naturally loses hyaluronic acid as we age, often beginning as early as the 30’s. … Continue reading

However, not everyone wants to undergo nose surgery, and there are times when altering other facial features can improve the appearance of the nose. From liquid rhinoplasty to chin implants, patients can gain a more attractive nose without a traditional nose job.
