Restylane® is one of the leading hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers. This family of facial fillers includes treatments that smooth away wrinkles around the nose and mouth and enhance the size and shape of lips. Annapolis plastic surgeon Dr. Bryan Ambro offers fully customized treatment with Restylane and Perlane®.
What is Restylane®?
Restylane is an HA facial filler, similar to Juvéderm®. It’s primarily used to restore volume and smooth away wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
Restylane is also the first and only dermal filler FDA-approved for lip enhancement in patients over age 21. Dr. Ambro can use Restylane to enhance the shape and/or fullness of your lips.
What is Perlane®?
Like Restylane, Perlane is a clear, hyaluronic acid facial filler. It is unique, however, in the fact that it has gel particles which are chemically cross linked to delay breakdown by skin enzymes. Perlane is better suited for deeper facial folds, because the gel structure offers more support for the skin. Perlane results also tend to last longer than Restylane or Juvéderm.
