Restylane – Juvederm – Perlane (Hyaluronic Acid)
Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers
This treatment is used with patients who want to eliminate superficial or deep facial wrinkles, particularly those in the glabellar area, nasolabial folds, and one of the best alternatives for lip augmentation.
Where can you have Restylane applications?
Restylane (PERLANE) is based on a non animal-based hyaluronic acid gel that closely resembles the body´s own hyaluronic acid.
Restylane gels work by enhancing your skin´s own stocks of hyaluronic acid, directly adding volume to either soften the signs of aging or enhance your features.
It is a long lasting dermal filler, but not permanent. If you are looking for a permanent result, the best alternative would be a product such as Aquamid.
Using a very fine needle, the medium is injected directly into the wrinkles and creases.
A local anesthetic such as lidocaine is used to numb the area and diminish puncture pain, which is almost negligible.
Length of procedure
Depends on the number of areas to be treated, but averages approximately 30 minutes. Results are visible immediately.
None. This procedure can be performed at the physician´s office.
No facial massages, creams or cleansing lotions should be used for the first 24 hours.
The effect of Hyaluronic Acid is transitory, lasting approximately 6-14 months.
No pre-medical allergy tests are required.
