Question : Is Perlane or Juvederm better for filling nasolabial folds?
Answer : I don’t like to recommend one filler over the other. I think that it is very important to look at what you’re achieving and then look at what the product can do to achieve your goals. I like to ask patients if they want a long-lasting filler or short-acting filler. Are they comfortable with the change that we are going to make or do they want to have it for a very short time so they can look and see whether or not this is exactly what they want? The second thing is what type of material do they want to use as filler? Do they want a material that’s made out of natural compounds which will dissolve? Are they comfortable with filler that may last longer which is made from synthetic materials? Once the patient has answered all these questions, then we can choose the most appropriate filler for them.
