It’s very common to see patients at The Plastic Surgery Group of Rochester coming in for consultations about getting fillers as a solution to their facial wrinkles and fine lines. For a more natural look, I recommend Restylane and Perlane to all my patients. The Restylane family of products is known for smoothing away wrinkles and lines and improving a patient’s facial contours. Unlike other fillers, Restylane and Perlane create a very natural look because they do not affect the facial expressions or normal facial movements. Both of them are in the form of a clear gel made from hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that the body naturally produces, so this eliminates any risk of allergic reactions. Either of these can be directly injected into a patient’s skin and the effects will be immediate.
How is Restylane different from Perlane? Although both products are made from hyaluronic acid, their main difference is the average size of their gel particles, as well as the depth of the injection at which they are introduced into the indicated areas. Perlane is recommended for use in more severe cases of facial wrinkles which can only be eliminated if a deep injection of filler is used, while Restylane is more suited for more superficial procedures.
Both products are being used for patients at The Plastic Surgery Group of Rochester not only to restore a more youthful look, but also to adding volume to lips and giving the skin an overall fresher look because these fillers are designed to hydrate the skin from deep within.
