What can you say about which one is more appropriate filler for under eyelid and tear through ? One doctor said Perlane, the other doctor said Redexis. By your experience which one can fill up better looking and longer ?
hi mary nicole, i don't think there is much debate these days about what material is best under the eyes. hyaluronic acid works really well and lasts for a long time - over a year and sometimes as long as long as 3 years. i prefer juvederm ultra to perlane and restylane - i get smoother results - but that's just my preference. its perfectly ok to use the other substances if the doctor wants. what is not ok is to use radiesse in the tear troughs. there is no reason to do so, since radiesse is more likely to form bumps, it is more likely to show through the skin as a white stripe and radiesse cannot be reversed with enzyme like juvederm or restylane or perlane. i have probably done about 1000 tear trough cases and i have never had a serious problem with juvederm or restylane. hope that helps
