Injectable Fillers Before & Afters Case #12318
This 31 year old woman came to the practice seeking a procedure to minimize her nasolabial folds (lines located along the outer edge of the nose down to the mouth). She wanted her skin to have a smoother look without noticeable creases.
During her consultation, she was examined carefully so that the best possible results could be achieved. Since her skin along her nasolabial folds needed to be lifted to the same level as the skin around it, a dermal filler was the best option for this patient. There are many types of dermal fillers offered at the practice, all serving similar purposes of giving the skin a smooth look and decreasing wrinkles or folds.
The dermal filler that was chosen for this patient was Perlane®, which is composed of hyaluronic acid, a resilient chemical that can mold to facial contours and plump up facial depressions. We use fillers like Perlane in Los Angeles because they last longer than collagen and do not require allergy pre-testing. For this patient, four syringes of Perlane were injected into her cheeks and smile lines.
Her results turned out fantastic, even though these pictures are taken just two weeks after her treatment, her nasolabial folds have already diminished tremendously. She is ecstatic about her more youthful look, which she can maintain through regular skin care treatments in Los Angeles.
