many fillers on the market these days, but the most popular and in-demand
product is Perlane-L from Medicis Pharmaceuticals. Perlane-L is a synthetically

12 month, but this may vary from one person to another. The filler is
gradually broken down and absorbed by the body, so the lines, wrinkles
or lips will gradually return to their previous appearance without touch-up

is placed, giving you even more improved results after two weeks. If you
keep up the fillers on a regular basis, you will be able to go longer
in between treatments and possibly use less filler than initially.
