At Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, now a part of U.S. Dermatology Partners, we are dedicated to assisting patients in the Sterling area with their skin care concerns. Many patients complain of imperfections on their face due to aging skin. There are many non-invasive solutions for addressing this concern. At Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia we offer a wide variety of skin rejuvenation services and treatments. One of the most common anti-aging treatment options is dermal fillers. Dermal fillers include a variety of products, such as Perlane, that are injected into the skin to replace lost volume, enhance lips, reduce wrinkles and rejuvenate the skin overall.
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 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.
