Restylane® & Perlane®
Restylane® is a long-lasting and crystal-clear gel for filling out lips, facial wrinkles and facial folds. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane® is almost identical to that naturally found in the body.
The product is naturally integrated into the tissue, allowing important nutritive agents to pass freely through the implant and cells to pass between fragments of the gel.
Restylane® contains hyaluronic acid in the form of a crystal-clear gel injected into the skin to lift the lip, wrinkle or fold. Once in the skin, Restylane® works together with the body's own hyaluronic acid and joins forces to create volume. Unlike permanent implants, Restylane® always leaves you a choice when the effect of the treatment has worn off.
Restylane® is typically used to treat superficial lines. It is also used for lip enhancement. Similar to Restylane®, Perlane® offers longer lasting results for lip enhancement and the correction of deep folds.
Restylane® is injected into the dermis and provides volume where the concentration of the body's own hyaluronic acid has decreased. One treatment session takes about 30 minutes. The results can be seen immediately and no scars or other marks are left on the face. Even though the treated area can swell up somewhat and be red for up to one day afterwards, it is quite possible to meet other people and work as normal.
Restylane® is not extracted from animals. This means no risk of allergic reactions. Therefore, Restylane® is perfectly safe to use instantly without pre-testing. How long the effect of Restylane® treatment lasts depends is very individual. It depends on many factors, such as the structure of the skin, lifestyle and age as well as on the degree of perfection demanded by the individual. However, we know that for the majority of the patients treated about 50-80 % of the effect remains after 6 months. Most people choose to have a touch-up done within a year of the original treatment.
