Q A For Your Skinformation. When I was younger, people often used to tell me how nice I looked, but now that I’m in my forties I rarely get a compliment on my appearance anymore. I only have a few mild wrinkles, so why do I look worn out? Our faces change in many diff erent ways as we age. Like you, some of us don’t wrinkle much and yet we obviously look older over time. We actually refer to skin aging as wrinklers, sinkers and/or saggers. The sinking or sagging is attributed to gradual or not so gradual loss of volume. It makes us look tired. We restore facial volume by strategically injecting products such as Juvederm Voluma for a fresh, natural rejuvenated look. Currently Skin Spectrum injects the number one volume of the new fi ller Voluma in the United States. Q A I just put on my bathing suit for a tropical vacation and was surprised at the new curves on my upper, outer thighs. I exercise and am in my normal weight classifi cation, but this is how the females in my family age. What can I do? Softening and fl attening the inner and outer thigh fat bulges are a common request at our practice. The most recent FDA-approved device is the new fl at panel from CoolSculpting. This is a non-invasive “cooling” device that safely recontours our bodies. The results take eff ect over a 2 month period and are long lasting. As you have noted we always recommend a healthy diet, exercise and specifi c products to maximize your contouring results. Jody Comstock, M.D. Tina Pai, M.D. 520.797.8885 6127 N.
