Restylane and Perlane 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).
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.
The difference between Restylane/Perlane and Botox. Both products are used to treat wrinkles, but in different ways. Restylane product are natural, cosmetic filers injected into the skin, adding volume to smooth wrinkles such as nasolabial folds. Restylane/Perlane can also be used to plum the lips. In contrast, Botox relaxes the muscles that cause frown lines between the eyebrows.
Restylane products are approved by the FDA and proven to deliver long lasting results. Restylane lasts about 6 months. Perlane lasts at least 6 months, in a majority of patients.
