Restylane®

The smart and easy way to add volume and smoothness to your skin. Restylane is based on a hyaluronic acid gel closely resembles the body’s own hyaluronic acid. It is long lasting, but not permanent. As a sister product to Restylane, Perlane is designed for more pronounced facial folds and wrinkles such as those on the sides of the mouth and cheeks.

Can be used on:


  • Smile lines
  • Marionette lines
  • lips/lipstick lines
  • Cheeks
  • Under eyes
  • Results are immediate and can last 6-12 months

How is Perlane different from Restylane?

Both Perlane and Restylane are composed of Hyaluronic acid. The primary difference between Restylane and Perlane is that the hyaluronic gel particles in Perlane are larger than those found in Restylane. This gives Perlane additional ability to lift and fill the areas of injection that require a denser formulation. Perlan and Restylane are perfect complements to one another.
