Restylane® and Perlane® are cosmetic dermal fillers that restore volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds).
A dermal filler is a substance injected into the skin to replace lost volume and fullness. Restylane® and Perlane® are both dermal fillers using hyaluronic acide that can have an effect on your appearance.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance found in the connective tissue of the body that cushions and lubricates. Hyaluronic acid also provides volume and fullness to the skin.
The hyaluronic acid in Restylane® and Perlane® has been slightly modified to last longer than the body's natural hyaluronic acid. It's produced by a biotechnical process and is injected into the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the nasolabial folds.
Every treatment will differ. Please come in our office for a consultation.
A patented stabilization technology helps Restylane® and Perlane® deliver long-lasting results. Restylane® lasts for about six months.
Some Perlane® patients maintained results for up to nine months in clinical trials. In two clinical studies, the number of patients maintaining improvement with Perlane® at six months was 63% and 71%, respectively. Some patients maintained results for up to nine months in clinical trials. A clinical study in Scandinavia showed improvement in 49% of patients at nine months, although assessing patients' improvement at nine months was not the main purpose of the study.
Restylane® and Perlane® contain stabilized hyaluronic acid, made by the same biotechnical process. The difference is that Perlane® has larger gel particles than Restylane® and is intended for deeper injection.
BOTOX® and Restylane® are both used to correct wrinkles, but in different ways. Restylane® products are cosmetic fillers injected into the skin, adding colume to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. In contrast, BOTOX® relaxes the muscles that cause frown lines between your eyebrows.
Restylane® and Perlane® do not contain animal proteins as some collagens do. This may limit the risk of animal-based disease transmission or allergic reaction. Restylane® and Perlane® contains trace amounts of gram positive bacterial proteins and are contraindicated for patients with a history of allergies to such material. Restylane® and Perlane® do not require and allergy test and can be administered immediately, so there is no waiting for treatment.
