Systemic sclerosis is an autoimmune rheumatic disease of unknown etiology, often manifested with excessive, fibrosis of the skin. The viscous properties of the skin are impaired, and the main histologic changes include a thicker dermis, absence of pilosebaceous units, and a decreased space between collagen bundles. We present a case of 20-year- old Korean woman with micrognathia and microchilia due to systemic sclerosis who came for improvement of her doll-like appearance. We saw an improvement in her micrognathia and microchilia by using Restylane® and Perlane®.
