There are many factors that contribute to skin aging, one of which is a loss of hyaluronic acid a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity. As a result, your skin can begin to develop wrinkles and folds. Restylane® and Perlane® can be used individually to add 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).
How they work
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. Restylane® may also be used for lip enhancement.
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.

After your treatment
You might experience some swelling, redness, bruising or tenderness. These are typically mild in severity. Cold compresses will help reduce swelling or discomfort. You will be advised not to touch the area for the first six hours and to avoid aspirin or anti-inflammatory medications.
Restylane® or Perlane® provides instant results with little to no downtime. A regimen in the nasolabial folds can last for up to 18 months.
