Greater Tampa restylane and Perlane Specialists.
Restylane or Perlane are cosmetic dermal fillers that replace lost volume and restore youthful contours to the skin to smooth away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corner of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane is the world’s most used, most studied dermal filler, and has been used in over 70 counties and in more than 1.4 million treatments in the US. Perlane has been used by physicians, dermatologists, and plastic surgeons worldwide since 2000.
Restylane and Perlane are made of hyaluronic acid. In the human body, natural hyaluronic acid provides volume and fullness to the skin. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane and Perlane has been modified slightly to last longer than the body’s hyaluronic acid. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane and Perlane is produced by a biotechnical process.
Restylane and Perlane are hydrophilic or “water loving.” The hydrophilic nature of these hyaluronic acid molecules and their three dimensional structure allow them to bind many times their own weight in water. As hyaluronic acid begins to degrade, each molecule binds to more water which helps to maintain its volume for about six months.
Dermal fillers can put off the signs of aging for years. But when anti-aging skin care products quit doing what we had hoped for, where do we turn? Dermal fillers can help to fill that void that anti-aging skin care products can leave behind and give the results that we desire quickly.
As skin ages, even the most beautiful and well-maintained skin begins to lose collagen and elasticity, allowing the opportunity for fine lines and wrinkles to form. This typically begins in the areas where skin is the most delicate, such as around the eyes and at the corners of the mouth. For many, these minor imperfections begin in the early 30’s, but largely go unnoticed until the 40’s, when both men and women begin to feel dissatisfied with what’s seen in the mirror. Don’t wait until you are completely unhappy with your appearance; take a proactive approach before it affects your confidence.
