Restylane® & Perlane
Deep creases, fine lines, and wrinkles along the face and between the nose and mouth can be smoothed out and rejuvenated with Restylane®. One of many effective dermal fillers at our practice, Restylane® can also be used to add volume to the lips and is known to have long-lasting results. There is no allergy testing requirement for treatment, and the entire procedure can be performed over your lunch hour. Restylane® is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the human body, and works by binding its chemicals to natural moisture in the treatment areas. Restylane® also contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic. Injections are made with a fine needle and can be made more comfortable with the application of a topical numbing agent in the areas targeted for rejuvenation. Some bruising and swelling can be expected after the procedure; however, this should fade quickly over the next few days. Results from Restylane® often last six months, and in some cases, up to a year.

Perlane® is an excellent dermal filler for patients wishing to improve the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles and facial folds, including nasolabial folds (creases between the nose and mouth). Lip augmentation and aesthetic improvement of depressions in the face and mild scarring can also be treated with Perlane®. This dermal filler is composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs in the human body, and therefore does not require allergy testing. Injected with a very fine needle into the areas targeted for treatment, Perlane® is designed to bind water molecules in order to maintain volume and renew the appearance of the skin. Perlane® also contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic. The entire procedure is typically about 30 minutes or less, and there is usually no downtime necessary after treatment. Some redness and swelling will likely be present after treatment; however, this should fade over the next few days.
Perlane® results typically last six to nine months or more. In addition to rejuvenation of wrinkles and fine lines, this injectable can also be used to augment the chin and fill depressions in the cheeks. Although some patients may not be candidates for Perlane®, once you have been evaluated during your initial consultation our dermatologist can recommend a number of effective alternatives for those who may not qualify.
