Restylane is an FDA-approved drug that is composed of hyaluronic acid-a substance that is produced naturally by the body. It is used to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and nasolabial folds. The effect of this injection typically lasts from three to six months.

Each of us has natural lines that can be improved. Restylane can be used to give you a long-lasting and natural beauty lift: smoothing wrinkles and folds, and gives your mouth a fuller, more sensuous appearance, and makes your lips more luscious.

Perlane

Perlane is an injection that can get rid of wrinkles and enhances areas of your face immediately. Some of those areas include the lips, superficial lines around the mouth, forehead lines, and smile lines. Perlane is a non-animal Hyaluronic Acid, manufactured by a unique method in the Q-Med Laboratories in Sweden. Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body so it naturally dissipates into the body with time. All living organisms have hyaluronic Acid in their bodies. In humans this is the substance that creates volume in one’s face, giving it a healthy, young appearance. You can imagine what Hyaluronic acid does for a face when you consider the rounded face of a child, which forms into adulthood, and eventually recedes toward the skull causing furrow lines. When these are augmented by Perlane, this crystal clear Hyaluronic Acid combines with your own to revitalize the face. What about pre-tests? There are no pre-tests! Some bio-degradable implants require a test because they have been extracted from animals, but Perlane is not, and therefore there is no risk of allergic reaction.

Regimen

The Restylane Regimen gives you a look that lasts. It’s a way to help you get the most out of your Restylane treatments. The Restylane Regimen is a treatment plan that involves an initial treatment and a follow-up treatment 4.5 or nine months later. On average, only half the amount of Restylane injectable gel used at the initial treatment was needed to achieve full correction at the follow-up treatment.

Restylane is the only hyaluronic acid dermal filler approved to last up to 18 months from initial treatment of moderate to severe nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth) when patients followed the Restylane Regimen.

With Restylane injectable gel, time is on your side

At least 95% of patients saw results for up to 18 months when they followed the Restylane Regimen. In a clinical study treating the lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth (laugh lines), Restylane continued to provide improvement for up to 18 months after initial treatment, when each fold received a follow-up treatment at 4.5 or nine months. On average, only half the amount of Restylane used at the initial treatment was needed to achieve full correction at the follow-up treatment.

Using the Restylane Regimen, patients showed similar improvement, on average, at 18 months compared to their Week 2 Wrinkle Severity Rating Scale (WSRS) score.
