About Restylane® and Perlane®…
Restylane® and Perlane® are made of hyaluronic acid, the same viscous substance that lubricates our joints! This material is not obtained from donors; rather, it is synthesized in pure form in the lab. Because it is a thick substance that occurs naturally in the human body, it is more comfortable, lasts longer, and feels more natural than other injectable fillers such as collagen.
To better understand your overall health, we will evaluate your medical history prior to treatment. In addition, a complete examination of your face is made in order to decide the most effective injection sites. All issues and concerns will be addressed.
The areas that will be treated may be marked and photographs may be taken in order to follow the improvement after the procedure.
These injections are performed very comfortably in the office under local anesthesia. At most, only a very slight sting may be felt when injections are made. While the effects are not permanent, because this is a substance that is naturally-occurring in the body, the results can last 6-12 months. Additionally, if patients are diligent about repeating the injections on regular intervals, the results can last even longer!
After the procedure patients may experience slight bruising around the area that quickly fades. Swelling after the injection in excess of the volume injected is minimal and also resolves quickly. Normal activities can be resumed almost immediately. One of the benefits of a reversible injectable filler such as Restylane® and Perlane® is that the effects will dissipate and disappear over months, such that should a patient desire their pre-procedure appearance, they can achieve it once more.
