Aged to Perfection!

Posted on April 9, 2013 by Ella Fedonenko

Do you want to hear something absolutely amazing about “aging?” It only happens to other people! Now how did we get so lucky? Easy. We see ourselves every single day.

But what if you didn’t look into the mirror for three or four years? Then you take a peek. Quick! – what do you see? A slightly startled face staring back at you, wondering.“When did that frown line grow so deep? My lips look so much thinner and I never even noticed the hollows in my cheeks. What happened to my face? Why do I look so…different?”

Gravity happened. Dry skin happened. The sun happened. Loss of volume happened. Age happened. Fortunately, it happens over time. Slowly, but relentlessly. So slowly, in fact, that not only do we never see it coming, we never see it even when it arrives. Until…

Until someone snaps a picture when we aren’t looking. Or we catch an un-posed glimpse in a mirror.

Do you want to hear something else absolutely amazing about “aging?”

To some, they’re called the facial fillers; to others, the Fountain of Youth. But no matter what you call them, they’re the reason that “70 is the new 40” and no one, in their 60’s, looks a day over 30. Or needs to.

Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm and Radiesses…the new “Fab Four!” While Restylane was the first ground-breaking filler to receive FDA approval, in 2003 the family of products that followed, each added a nuance of difference and a more customized treatment for you.

Perlane, launched in the U.S. in 2007, is very similar to its sister, Restylane, as both products are created with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance already found in the body. No testing, no worries, no adverse allergic reaction.

So what’s the difference? Perlane is formulated with a larger or thicker “molecule” than Restylane and is better suited to diminishing deeper folds and wrinkles and for adding lift and volume to larger areas of the face. Lower cheek hollows or chin augmentation are perfectly suited for Perlane. But this is where the skill and experience of your practitioner comes in. Which filler for what desired effect is part of the artistry. Search for it. Use it. Love it.

And the love keeps coming. Perlane is known to last up to 8 months or so, if the right volume is injected or a touch-up session takes place within a month of the first treatment. It dissolves gradually and can be replenished just as naturally.

And the best part? Smoother, clearer and more supple skin. Your youthful radiance is restored. And that’s the most amazing part of the aging process. Reversing it…in an instant.
