Restylane ®

Restylane ® has been used in over 1.4 million treatments in the U.S. and is available in more than 70 countries. It is the most studied cosmetic dermal filler in the world with dozens of publications in medical literature.

Clinical studies showed no significant differences in the safety of Restylane ® and Perlane ®.

The Restylane ® family of products includes Restylane ® and Perlane ®. Both are cosmetic dermal fillers that replace lost volume and restore youthful contours to the skin to smooth away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds).
You don’t have to choose between Restylane ® and Perlane ®. In clinical trials, both were used in the same patients. The hyaluronic acid in both products is made by the same biotechnical process. The difference is in the gel particle size.

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.

Restylane ® products are proven to deliver long-lasting results. Restylane ® lasts about six months, in a majority of patients. The product’s patented stabilization technology helps maintain the cosmetic effect for those time periods.

Restylane ® and Perlane ® are FDA approved for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, like the ones from your nose to the corners of your mouth. Ask Dr. Anil K. Gandhi whether treatment is right for you.

What should patients do prior to treatment?

Restylane ® and Perlane ® require no pretesting, but you should take a few precautions before being treated.
Avoid using aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications or high doses of Vitamin E supplements prior to treatment, because these may increase bruising or bleeding at the injection site. Also, if you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, discuss this with Doctor Gandhi, who may prescribe a medication to minimize recurrence.
Restylane ® and Perlane ® do not require an allergy test and can be administered immediately –no waiting is required.  They both are administered by injection to the treatment site. Before treatment talk to Doctor Anil K.Gandhi about pain management.

Is any of the material left in the skin after it has dissolved?

No. Over time Restylane ® and Perlane ® products are broken down and eliminated by the body –unlike permanent fillers.
Restylane ® products are injected directly into the skin in small amounts by an ultrafine needle. As with all injections, some patients may experience discomfort. To increase your comfort, we will assess your need for pain management and determine what technique is right for you.

How often should I schedule an appointment?

How long the aesthetic correction lasts is very individual. Talk to us about the benefits of scheduling a follow-up appointment in about six months.

What are Restylane ® and Perlane ® products made of?

Restylane ® was the first cosmetic dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid that has been modified slightly to last longer than the body’s hyaluronic acid. In the human body natural hyaluronic acid provides volume and fullness to the skin.
