Restylane® & Perlane® are dermal fillers composed of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that maintains fullness and elasticity in the skin. As you grow older, your skin loses hyaluronic acid which results in wrinkles and folds in the skin. Restylane® & Perlane® are injected into the problem area to plump the folds and smooth the wrinkles. Perlane has larger gel particles that are meant to be injected deeper into the skin. The result is a more youthful and natural looking appearance.
Restylane® & Perlane® usually last 6 months or longer. and treatment with either is required twice a year. Dr. Ginn will evaluate you and discuss the specifics of which dermal filler is ideal for you during your initial consultation visit.
