The Facts About Skin Treatments
Somewhere between throwing a few AHAs into your skincare routine and going for a total surgical overhal, there's been an explosion of not-quite-drastic procedures. Are they worth it?
This 42-year-old woman had Restylane injected in the hollows beneath her eyes. "Dark circles that worsen with age are often the result of volume loss, which leaves shadows under the eyes," says Haideh Hirmand, MD, assistant clinical professor of surgery at Weill Medical College of Cornell University, who performed this procedure. "A hyaluronic acid filler can immediately make you look more well rested." Results can last up to 12 months. "I tell patients they really don't need this procedure more than once a year," says Hirmand.
