When we age, our skin thins, loses volume and stretches. The skin's building blocks,
collagen and elastin, break down to leave skin thinner and less pliable. When this
happens, everyday facial expressions like frowning or smiling highlight creases,
wrinkles and even hollow areas where volume has been lost. Although the breakdown
of collagen and elastin are impossible to prevent, there are ways to replace the
volume lost from this process using dermal fillers like Perlane.
To help reverse the loss of collagen and elastin, we use hyaluronic acid fillers.
"Shaping the face" with Perlane is a term used to describe how adding
volume to the skin can reverse the signs of decreased collagen and elastin.
The concept of "shaping the face" is important to understand and to ask
your practitioner about when considering Perlane injections. A good Perlane injector
doesn't just fill lines, they use the product to replace volume lost in the cheeks
Perlane is made of Hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance
found naturally in the body. Hyaluronic acid is what makes baby's skin feel so soft
since we have higher levels of HA when we are very young. HA has the unique ability
to absorb many times it's weight in water (up to 1,000x). Because of this unique
trait, Perlane is able to provide volume to hollow or thin areas of the face by
pulling water to the product after it has been injected.
Perlane is very different from Botox because it
smooths away wrinkles and fills thinning or hollow areas of the skin rather than
relaxing underlying facial muscles, which is how Botox works.
Perlane is an FDA approved dermal filler, and is a safe,
effective injection product for providing thinning skin and hollow ares with more
