Restylane and Perlane add volume and fullness to the skin to correct mild to severe lines, wrinkles and facial asymmetries.  Both products are crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gels based on a natural substance present in the human body called hyaluronic acid.  Your body's concentration of hyaluronic acid declines with age.  This causes areas of your face to appear hollow and sunken and also makes lines and wrinkles appear more prominent.   

Restylane is fast becoming a popular choice as an injectable filler for treating facial wrinkles, as well as plumping up lips.  It is used mostly for mild to moderate facial lines and wrinkles as opposed to lifting and contouring purposes.  Perlane is also an injectable filler made by the same company as Restylane (Medicis Aesthetics).   What makes Perlane different is that the gel particle is larger, making it a good choice for deeper wrinkles and folds, as well as lifting and contouring purposes.   



Dr. Shaw will discuss your options with you and make recommendations to help you achieve your desired result.  Before your procedure begins, a topical anesthetic cream may be used on the areas to be treated.  If you prefer, Dr. Shaw can expertly administer a painless dental block, effectively numbing the skin to keep you more relaxed and comfortable.  The gel is injected into the skin with a very fine needle.  The results are instantaneous.  Fine lines, wrinkles and folds are smoothed out producing a long-lasting, natural enhancement that is gentle and safe to your skin.  Biocompatible with the human body, Restylane and Perlane are eventually broken down naturally.   Results will last up to 18 months with full correction.*

Restylane is an excellent filler for lip augmentation.   Who doesn't want beautiful lips?  After all, lips play a central role in our sensual and emotional life--think attractive, youthful, kissable.  Restylane provides the fullness and definition that you can't get with lipstick or other cosmetics.  In fact, just one treatment gives you beautiful, natural-looking lips for up to one year!  Restylane is often used in conjunction with Botox or Dysport to enhance and extend the life of the results. 



You can go back to work and full unrestricted activities immediately.  You can shower and wash immediately, and no bandages or dressings are needed.  Some temporary itching, swelling, redness or bruising may occur within the first few days of treatment.
