Need a quick fix for firming my face
Maria_sf posted:
Hi, I need a tip to firm my face before the special event. Are there ways to do it?
Mohiba K Tareen, MD responded:
There are several creams with caffeine in them that give temporary firming to the face and eye area.

A filler such a Perlane or Radiesse can also be injected with minimal downtime to aid in lifting and firming the face (make sure to give it at least 1 week before the event in case there is some bruising).

I hope that helps
Maria_sf replied to Mohiba K Tareen, MD's response:
Thank you Dr Tareen. That was a great help.
