Define facial contours, smooth wrinkles and soften lines
Youthful-looking skin has a beautiful combination of natural collagen and hyaluronic acid. As we age, however, the body begins to produce less of these important elements – which can lead to facial sagging, wrinkles and folds. Older skin may also look thinner and more noticeably lined around the eyes and lips.Restylane® and Perlane® are injectable gels that can replace lost volume, define facial contours and restore your fresh, youthful look. Both of these proven treatments are available at our leading Vancouver facility.
What are Restylane® and Perlane®?
Restylane® is a clear, injectable gel formulation comprised of hyaluronic acid. It works under the skin to instantly smooth wrinkles and define facial contours. Like Restylane, Perlane® is also a clear gel formulation comprised of hyaluronic acid. The gel particles in Perlane are larger than those in Restylane, which make Perlane a good choice for shaping contours and wrinkles that require deeper injection into the skin.
What happens during Restylane® or Perlane® treatment?
After a consultation, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will recommend a treatment plan to address your unique concerns and aesthetic goals. Your doctor will cleanse and prepare the area, and then inject the Restylane® or Perlane® gel with an ultra-fine needle. Each session typically takes less than an hour with little-to-no downtime involved.
After the procedure, your physician may suggest a cold compress to reduce swelling and you should avoid exposure to intense heat or cold. Some patients may also experience redness, pain, itching or tenderness at the injection site, but your surgeon will provide complete pre- and post-treatment instructions to minimize potential side effects.
