Her legs are attractive and smoothAny part of your skin which is forced to bend and repeatedly stretch, such as the knees, can overtime becomes scaly, cracked, and wrinkled-looking. Also, the knees have to support the weight of your entire body, further exacerbating their condition. What’s more, with time, these areas tend to show more dryness and wrinkles.

The knee sag can afflict all individuals, whether overweight or in terrific shape. This looseness of the skin stems from a loss of elastic fibers, collagen, and muscle mass, which naturally occurs as we age. Firming the target area requires you to develop the muscles above your kneecap, thus rebuilding elastic fibers.

How Does Strategic™ Wrinkle-Free Knee Work?

First, your goals are discussed. To what extent can the wrinkles be erased? How much damage can be repaired? Most importantly, is this the best procedure for you? Second, the area is thoroughly assessed. The area must be examined to know how much filler is needed.

Third, the filler has to work with you, your needs, and your body. So, the specifics of how well the filler is going to work are addressed. Additionally, unrealistic expectations are dismissed. Fourth, the filler and Botox® are injected to reduce the wrinkles and fine lines. Furthermore, they add a volumizing effect, rejuvenating the appearance of the knees, and the surrounding area.

If you’re serious about improving the appearance of your knees, get in the habit of exfoliating them regularly. Further, consider Strategic Knee Character Repair.
