Restylane is the #1 selling dermal filler in the world. With over 1.4 million treatments in the US alone, it is the most-studied cosmetic dermal filler in the world and has natural looking results typically in one doctor visit.
The Restylane family of products includes Restylane and Perlane, both cosmetic dermal fillers that replace lost volume and restore youthful contours to the skin to smooth away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. While both products contain hyaluronic acid derived from the same biotechnical process, Perlane gel particles are larger and designed for deeper injection than Restylane. Your doctor will decide which product is right for you, based on an evaluation of facial wrinkles and folds. Both products are FDA approved and last about six months.
How does Restylane work?
Restylane adds 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).
Restylane works immediately by adding volume to smooth away wrinkles. A clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, Restylane is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid. So, you can use Restylane to visibly reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds for a younger-looking you.
Biocompatible with the human body, Restylane is eventually broken down naturally.
How does Perlane work?
Just like Restylane, Perlane adds 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).
Like Restylane, Perlane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to add fullness like your body’s own hyaluronic acid.
What makes Perlane different is the average size of the particles and the depth of injection. On average, the gel particles in Perlane are larger than those in Restylane, which makes Perlane a good choice for wrinkles that benefit from a deeper injection into the skin.
In three clinical studies of 150 patients each, on average 70% of patients maintained improvement for six months after just one Perlane treatment.
During your consultation, your healthcare professional will decide which product is right for you.
