The next generation of injectable dermal fillers is paving the way for people to attain a more youthful and vibrant look. As the industry evolves, it is easier to achieve everlasting beauty without surgery.
If you are interested in minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, there are many new treatments for you to consider. Three of the newest options are Perlane®, Juvederm®, Radiesse and Perlane®.
Perlane®, which was most recently approved by the FDA and is produced by the same company that developed Restylane®, is a natural substance used to replace lost tissue volueme. In addition, the FDA has approved Radiesse, which provides dramatic results that can last almost twice as long as other products. It is used to fill in the nasolabial folds, or smile lines.
Juvederm® is an FDA-approved dermal filler made by the same company that developed Botox®. It is a gel product made from hyaluronic acid, a natural component of the body that works to hold moisture in the body’s cells while increasing elasticity, durability and radiance. Juvederm® plumps up the lips, fills in wrinkles, and offers a youthful, refreshed and smooth look. It also lasts longer than traditional dermal fillers. “Each of these products is effective, which one is best depends on each individual patient’s need,” said Dr. Nestor, who has served on the clinical advisory panel for many of these companies.
