Restylane® and Perlane® are safe and natural cosmetic dermal fillers that restore fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It is FDA Approved and is made of a non-animal-based hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring substance found already in the skin that helps add hydration and volume.
The initial appointment includes a complimentary consultation to discuss expectations and review & complete the consent forms. The treatment itself will take about 30 minutes and includes the numbing cream and treatment. Restylane® and Perlane® are expected to last about 6 months.
One week prior to treatment, patients will want to avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications, Vitamin E and St. John’s Wort. This will help minimize any bruising or bleeding. The most common side effects are temporary swelling and redness and these will usually subside within 2-3 days.
Before and After pictures are available on the Restylane®/Perlane® Web Page.
