Restylane®, Perlane®, JUVÉDERM® and HydrelleTM are among the most common and popular injectable fillers used in modern cosmetic surgery to reduce the aging effects of lines and wrinkles. One of the main reasons for their popularity is that they are all based on synthetic hyaluronic acid, which closely resembles the substance of the same name which occurs naturally in the human body and which is what normally fills out the skin, eliminating wrinkles, until the aging process starts to win.

These injectable fillers can be used on nasolabial folds between the nose and the mouth. While this is the only area currently labelled for its use by the FDA, other sites which may be injected “off-label” include lines on the forehead, furrowed brows, and lips. It works in harmony with your body’s own hyaluronic acid to leave the skin smoother and less wrinkled. No allergy testing is required as the potential for immunologic reactions is low.

There is now evidence that the hyaluronic acid fillers may also stimulate the skin to produce collagen, thus enhancing and prolonging the cosmetic effect.

A variety of injectable fillers are now available to help soften facial folds and wrinkles for patients in Palm Beach – Florida. These can be extremely effective in enhancing the results of facial surgery or providing improvement to areas of concern when one isn’t quite ready for a surgical procedure. Dr. Felice will review the various materials available and their relative advantages.
