Sterling area dermatologist describes Perlane dermal fillers
Patients who visit the Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc. complaining of imperfections on their face due to aging skin can speak with a dermatologist who offers non-invasive solutions for addressing their appearance. The doctors at Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc. in the Sterling area can help patients with a wide range of dermal fillers, including Perlane.
Perlane is a cosmetic filler that is injected into specific areas of the face to address unwanted fine lines, wrinkles, and folds. It is most commonly used in areas such as the nasolabial folds to help add volume to these deep layers of the dermis and reduce their depth and appearance.
Perlane is made of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the skin. It attracts water and therefore, can add volume to the areas in which it is injected. It is also non-allergenic, which eliminates the need for allergy testing. Perlane is different from other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers because it has larger gel particles, which make it better for more defined wrinkles and folds. Other fillers, such as Juvéderm, may be better suited for fine lines and wrinkles due to the smaller particles used to make it. Each dermal filler has its advantages, and the doctors at Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc. can work with patients to determine the best injectable for their specific needs.
Perlane is safe, effective, and affordable, making it a wonderful alternative to more invasive treatments such as plastic surgery. Patients can use Perlane as a way of addressing mild to moderate lines and wrinkles to help address the signs of aging.
Patients in and around the Sterling area who are interested in learning more about anti-aging solutions that do not require surgery are welcome to visit the practice of Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc. to inquire about the many methods of addressing fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face. Perlane may be right for many patients and a consultation appointment and evaluation can help determine the advantages of use.
