Restylane® or Perlane®
Restylane® and Perlane® are made from non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA) gel. This means that Restylane® and Perlane® contain no animal products. Since hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the skin and other tissue, there is no need for a skin test when using Restylane® and Perlane® fillers.
The hyaluronic acid supplements the body’s natural supply, which becomes depleted with age. Restylane® and Perlane® are biodegradable so the effects are not permanent. The results of Restylane® and Perlane® filler treatments tend to last six months to a year. This is much longer than the typical results of collagen injections, which may only last three to six months.
