Cosmetic Fillers Restylane and Perlane
Restylane® and Perlane are cosmetic fillers that are injected into areas of decreased volume that show up in your face over time due to aging, smoking and the effects of gravity and sun. These fillers are hydrophilic and the purpose is to add volume, thus diminishing or almost completely eliminating fine lines and wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body and provides volume and fullness in the skin. Over time, women lose this substance 33% faster than men. Restylane® and Perlane are modified to provide a volume-enhancing effect that will last longer than what would be expected from “naturally” occurring hyaluronic acid found in the body.
The Restylane® brand is the top selling dermal filler in the world. To date, over 1.4 million treatments of Restylane have been done in more than 70 countries. The results of Restylane last about 6-9 months, although studies show that with one repeat injection, results can last up to 18 months. The FDA has given Restylane® an 18-month duration approval time frame, provided a specific application pattern is provided. This can provide on-going “full correction” for up to the specified time frame, thus keeping you satisfied longer, cutting down on re-treatments and costing you less in the long run.
Perlane is specifically designed for deeper lines and wrinkles. Many times both fillers are used at one session depending on the correction required. Kristin will recommend what is best for your concerns. The goal is to get you the longest duration possible. Kristin will also prepare you for the injection with a topical numbing cream. There are numerous areas that are possible for treatment, including lips, nasal folds, and marionette lines around the mouth and under the eyes. Cheeks and other areas can also be enhanced with Perlane®.
Before & After Photos
Juvéderm is the first smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Juvéderm® is injected under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds, the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). Hylacross technology gives Juvéderm® its unique smooth-gel properties as well as an optimal gel structure that holds up over time.
Juvéderm® injectable filler is the only hyaluronic acid filler that is FDA approved to last up to one year with initial treatment, although typical results are 6-9 months.
Juvéderm® provides a smooth, natural look and feel-so everyone will notice (but no one will know). In fact, studies show superior results of Juvederm compared to a collagen-based dermal filler. Juvéderm has been used to treat numerous areas, including lips, nasal folds, cheek enhancement, and marionette lines around the mouth and under the eyes.
