Aging can bring a lot of aesthetic changes to your body. When these changes occur on the face, self-confidence can be lost. While a regular and diligent skin-care routine can help keep your skin looking healthy, there is only a little that can be done at home to reduce the appearance of lost volume.
Thankfully, several minimally invasive treatment options can regain the lost volume in certain areas of your face. Along with other injectables, such as BOTOX®, that freeze muscles from contracting and creating or deepening wrinkles and fine lines, others use naturally occurring molecules to allow your body to add volume in treated areas.
One of the most common of these is hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a molecule naturally produced in the body, though how much is made decreases with age. HA works by drawing in nearby water molecules to add volume with a natural look.
Restalyne® is widely known as a HA injection that provides excellent results for those looking for an increased volume in key areas of the face. Previously, there was a limit to how much volume could be restored in a single session, which may not work for everyone.
However, Dr. Hunsaker is pleased to offer a new formulation of HA, Perlane. Since Perlane is a thicker formulation of HA, about three times as thick, it is more suitable for areas that need a significant boost in volume.
It may create lumps or an unnatural look if used in areas where just a tiny amount of volume is needed. Since this can be safely and efficiently combined with the thinner Restalyne®, Dr. Hunsaker can create a customized treatment plan to provide the precise aesthetic changes you want.
