The natural aging process reduces subcutaneous fat, a unique type of fatty tissue that lies just beneath the skin. This reduces volume and fullness, causing the appearance of the face to change. Facial muscles become closer to the surface of the skin as subcutaneous fat subsides, making it easier to spot things like smile lines and crow’s feet. Over time, skin may also lose its elasticity and begin to stretch.
Aesthetic dermatologist and dermal filler expert, Dr. Mariano Busso, uses dermal fillers to help restore volume and create a more youthful appearance. At our Coconut Grove office, popular dermal fillers and enhancement procedures include:
- Lip enhancement
- Cheekbone enhancement with facial fillers
- Smoothing facial wrinkles and fine lines
- Minimizing facial scars
- BOTOX® treatment
