Restylane And Perlane

Restylane is an FDA-approved non–animal-stabilized hyaluronic acid derivative used for soft tissue augmentation. Restylane is derived from streptococcal bacterial fermentation and does not require an animal source. Perlane is also a hyaluronic acid derivative, but it is a more robust form of Restylane for use in the deeper layers of the facial skin. Both Restylane and Perlane have less risk of clumping and go in more smoothly, for a better final result. No allergy testing is required; so most patients are good candidates for these particular dermal fillers. Restylane and Perlane are primarily used for lip augmentation, with outstanding results that last up to 9 months.
