Perlane, the Latest filler from Europe
Perlane, part of the Restylane family, was approved by the FDA in May 2007 and has just come on the market. At Epione we are pleased to be among the first offices to make Perlane available to its patients. The difference between Restylane and Perlane is the hyaluronic acid gel particles in Perlane are larger than those found in Restylane. This means that you will get even better contouring and added volume for those deeper facial wrinkles and folds and lips. Perlane treatments should last about six months.
Radiesse is made of smooth, calcium-based microspheres suspended in a natural gel. The product works to stimulate your body’s own collagen production for a soft, natural look. After a short series of treatments, Radiesse has shown to last between 3 and 7 years, giving it a serious edge over other fillers, which usually fade after 6–9 months.
Juvederm is a new hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic acids play an important role in the way your skin feels and functions. As you age, your skin tissue becomes dehydrated and the collagen and elastin fibers lose their structure. Hyaluronic acid gels, like Juvederm, can help to temporarily replace the lost hyaluronic acid and restore your skin’s volume and smooth, natural appearance. It lasts about six months.
