Restylane and Perlane Facial Fillers

Restylane and Perlane are FDA approved dermal fillers that replace lost volume of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (nasolabial folds), lasting approximately 6 to 12 months. Restylane and Perlane are both composed of crystal-clear, biodegradable NASHA (Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid) gel. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that exists in the body, and its most important function is to carry and bind water. NASHA does not contain animal protein and does not require a skin test. Restylane and Perlane produce results that are instantaneous, lasting from 6 to 12 months, and both are gentle and safe to the skin.

The hyaluronic acid in Restylane and Perlane is made by the same bio-technical process. The difference is in the gel particle size. Perlane gel particles are larger and designed for deeper injection than Restylane.

After treatment you may experience redness and/or swelling. This normally lasts less than seven days. Excessive sun exposure and/or cold outdoor activities should be avoided until redness or swelling disappear.

Restylane is also ideal for lip enhancements:

* The ideal upper lip should be approximately 40% of the total height of the lips, and the lower lip should be about 60%
* The lower lip should be fuller, but the upper lip should project slightly more at profile
* Fullness in the center
* The Cupid's bow should appear even and well-defined
* The corners of the lips should align with the center of the pupils of the eyes
