Restylane treatments is a dermal filler that is most often used to combat the visible signs of aging. It is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel designed to fill in fine lines and wrinkles in the face by adding volume and fullness. Dermal fillers are also commonly used in lip injections to plump up lips to give a fuller appearance. What really sets it apart from other dermal fillers is that it is a natural, synthesized and fully degradable substance, and does not require an allergy testing prior to treatment.

What is Restylane Treatment Used For?
Restylane treatments are used to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and signs of aging. It works by filling in lines and wrinkles, which adds volume back to the face. When injected into the treatment area Restylane injections works with the body’s own hyaluronic acid to create additional volume in the desired area. So not only does the gel itself fill in lines and wrinkles, it works with the body’s natural hyaluronic acid to provide a more natural appearance. In addition to treatment for wrinkles, Restylane treatment is used for lip filler treatments. This dermal filler is commonly used to treat the following areas:
Nasolabial folds (laugh lines)
- Around the mouth (marionette lines)
- Lip border definition (lipstick lines)
- Lip enhancement
- Corners of the mouth
- Jowl area
How are Dermal Filler Treatments Injected?
Restylane is injected directly into the skin in the area that you what to be treated. Once a Restylane treatment is placed in the face, the skin becomes much more smooth and facial lines are minimized. The added volume and smooth texture give your face a healthy, youthful appearance. The dermal filler treatments work immediately by adding volume to diminish unwanted wrinkles.
A very fine needle is used to minimize pain and discomfort. A topical numbing cream can be used to further reduce pain if necessary.

What is Perlane?
Like a Restylane treatment, Perlane is a hyaluronic acid gel formula that is used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. However, Perlane differs from Restylane treatments because the gel particles in the Perlane are larger than those in Restylane. These larger particles are more effective at deeper wrinkle treatments and folds. Often times, Perlane injections are used as a “base” filler, and the less dense fillers like Restylane or Juvederm are placed on top.
