Can “runner’s Face” Be Fixed?
“Runner’s Face” is a term used to describe the worn out and ‘skeletal’ look that runners sometimes develop in their later years. As running causes us to burn lots of fat, doing lots of it tends to create areas of volume loss that become more pronounced as we get older. That coupled with the loss of fullness that comes with the natural aging process and years of sun damage can contribute to a heavily aged face.
It seems unfair that those of us who try so hard to stay in shape in our younger years would develop such conditions because of it. Thankfully, there are multiple aesthetic procedures available today that can effectively rejuvenate the face and counteract these signs of aging in the face. Treatments such as dermal fillers, fat grafting, and BOTOX can all be of great help.
At the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center in Houston, TX we specialize in multiple facial rejuvenation procedures using both non-invasive and surgical techniques. We have helped thousands of patients, both runners and non-runners alike, achieve their aesthetic goals and look better than they have in years.
