If you are unhappy with signs of aging such as hollows under your eyes, sunken cheeks, facial folds, or thin lips, the injectable fillers Restylane and Perlane may be able to help. These fillers are made of a natural, safe material normally present in your skin, and give long-lasting results. Injections of these facial fillers can allow you to experience improvement in your facial appearance for six months or more.
Restylane and Perlane are two of the many injectable fillers we offer at JUVA Skin & Laser Center in central Manhattan. The best way to learn if they are the right ones for you is with a personal consultation. Please call (212) 688-5882 today to schedule an appointment.
What Is Restylane?
Restylane is an injectable filler derived from hyaluronic acid, similar to Juvéderm. Hyaluronic acid is a natural moisturizing component found in your skin, joints, and eyes. Hyaluronic acid in your skin diminishes with age, which is partly responsible for the dulling and loss of elasticity due to aging. The hyaluronic acid used in Restylane is not derived from an animal source, making it less likely to cause an allergic reaction, and no allergy test is required before treatment.
Restylane is created with very small granules of hyaluronic acid, which has a gel-like consistency. Perlane is chemically the same as Restylane, but has larger granules. The granular texture is intended to improve the longevity of results, and because Restylane is soft, its small grains do not generally create any visible bumps. Restylane is also available with Lidocaine to decrease localized discomfort and swelling that some people experience.
What Can Restylane Treat?
Restylane is a very flexible injectable filler. It can be used any place where additional volume is desired, including:
- Lip augmentation
- Hollows under the eyes
- Tear troughs
- Sunken cheeks
- Nasolabial folds (parenthesis lines around the mouth)
Restylane is an ideal surface treatment, but the longevity of results can often be improved by layering it with Perlane, especially for sunken cheeks and deep nasolabial folds. The larger grains of Perlane help it resist breakdown by the body and perform more lifting.
