Top Spots For Shopping In South Florida

NORTH MIAMI BEACH (CBS4) – Many women become obsessed with the appearance of their knees as they age, and a South Florida doctor is doing a procedure to get rid of the ‘saggy knee’ look.

In-shape celebs, like Demi Moore, are aging and covering their saggy knees. South Florida’s Mary Michel said she used to have the same problem.

“As I was doing Pilates it was that old lady look and they were getting wrinkly,” she said.

So the mother of five spoke to her dermatologist Dr. Andrea Trowers about doing something about it.

“Basically when you get wrinkling and drooping you have loss of hyaluronic acid over time,” Trowers said.

The before image shows wrinkles that no amount of exercise can help out, CBS4’s Cynthia Demos reported.

That’s when Trowers thought it may be best to use a filler, like juvederm, restylane, radiesse or perlane to plump up the knee. Trowers decided to use perlane and the results were positive.

Michel said it was a dramatic improvement for her. She said her knees are “much fuller.”

Michel said she had a similar procedure done on her hands, and her elbows are next.

The filler Michel used knees is approved by the FDA for the face, but doctors also approve it for knees.
