Restylane Perlane® is a dermal filler used to replenish areas of the face where youthful fullness may have faded. Restylane Perlane is made from a compound that naturally occurs in the body, known as hyaluronic acid (HA), which fills in the space between collagen and elastin fibers of the skin.
As the skin ages, the presence of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid is reduced, creating a loss of volume in the skin, and eventually folds, fine lines and wrinkles. Other factors contribute to these facial lines such as sun damage, poor diet, and smoking. Restylane Perlane® is part of the Galderma family of injectables, which include Restylane®, Restylane® Silk, and Dysport®.
Restylane Perlane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid adding volume and fullness to the skin. Restylane Perlane is used for wrinkles or folds that would benefit from a deeper injection (often the parenthesis lines extending from the nose down the face).
Restylane Perlane® is different than Restylane® because of it’s particle size and depth of injection, making it a better choice for deeper lines and folds.
Our nurse injector, or one of our board-certified plastic surgeons, will meet with you to discuss your aesthetic concerns and goals from treatment, as well as evaluate your face to determine which filler will obtain the best result.
Although Restylane Perlane® is formulated with a numbing agent (lidocaine), a topical numbing cream will be applied to the areas being treated to ensure minimal discomfort. Total treatment time varies depending on how many areas are being injected and how much total product is needed. Treatment time typically takes 15-20 minutes.
You will be able to resume most of your regular daily activities immediately following your treatment, however exercise will be restricted for up to 72 hours. Specific instructions will be given during your appointment.
You may experience swelling, redness, bruising, pain or tenderness at the injection site. These are typically mild in severity and resolve in less than 7 days.
Results will be seen immediately and may last up to 6 months. If results are not maintained, you will go back to your pre-treatment appearance. It is recommended to come in for a re-treatment prior to all of the product diminishing. Less filler will likely be needed.
