Understanding Facial Fillers: What Is Perlane?
Aging can wreak havoc on your skin, causing you to lose elasticity all across your face and body. If you have started to lose volume in your skin, you may want to consider getting facial injections to help plump it up and smooth it out. As one of the fillers that we at Associated Plastic Surgeons & Consultants like to use, Perlane will give you back a more youthful looking appearance. Read on to learn more.
Is It Safe?
One of the first things that our patients like to know before they get a new filler or injection is whether or not it is safe. All of the procedures that we offer at Associated Plastic Surgeons & Consultants are safe so you can rest easy that you will never have to worry. Made of hyaluronic acid, a chemical that is found naturally in your body, Perlane can get rid of fine lines and wrinkles on your face.
Fillers like Juvederm and Restylane are also made up of hyaluronic acid. However, unlike Juvederm and Restylane, Perlane can be used for all types of skin types to treat different types of fine lines and wrinkles. And because Perlane lasts around six to nine months on average, you won’t have to worry about getting injections too frequently.
What Is It Used For?
Similar to its sister fillers Juvederm and Restylane, Perlane is used to target the fine lines and wrinkles on the lower portion of the face— including the lips. By injecting small doses of Perlane around your nose and mouth, you will see noticeably different results.
Perlane injections offer patients a temporary way to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles around their nose and mouth. Additionally, it can also be used to add more volume to your lips— leaving you with a sexier mouth.

3 Reasons to Permanently Say Goodbye To Armpit Hair
There are certain parts of our body that just don’t make sense— including having hair under your arms. Although having underarm hair can help block sweat, it’s not something most women like to sport unless they have to. Luckily, here at Associated Plastic Surgeons & Consultants, we offer laser hair removal so that you can permanently get rid of your underarm hair without ever having to lift a laser again. Read on to learn more about three reasons that you should permanently say goodbye to your armpit hair.
- No More Razor Bumps
Shaving is notorious for causing things like razor bumps to emerge. And, when you combine alcohol based deodorant and razor bumps together, you get a giant, burning mess. Caused by excess irritation of the skin and repeatedly shaving, razor bumps can not only hurt but they can look unsightly as well. Luckily, when you get your underarm hair lasered off, you won’t have to worry about getting razor bumps any longer.
- No More Embarrassment
Nothing can feel quite as embarrassing as heading to a pool party or a beach day only to realize that you forgot to shave your underarms. Don’t spend another day hiding under a t-shirt or avoiding games like beach volleyball so that you won’t have to show off your underarms.
- No More Hair
What would be better than getting to shower just for the mere relaxation of it? By getting laser hair removal done on your underarms, you will get to spend more of your time in the shower relaxing, and less time worrying about having to shave. By permanently getting rid of your unwanted body hair you can kiss your razors, shave gel, and time-spent shaving goodbye!
Say hello to hair-free underarms without having to spend another day shaving again. From getting rid of razor bumps to no longer having to worry about armpit hair, these are just a few of the reasons you should consider getting this procedure done from Associated Plastic Surgeons & Consultants.
