Discover Most Popular Filler in Houston: Restylane/Perlane

Folds, creases, wrinkles, and fine lines are something that we all deal with as we age. Over the years, we are exposed to harmful UV rays from the sun, which makes these facial issues start to appear. However, as we grow older, there’s a natural breakdown of collagen and elastin, but our bodies aren’t able to replenish like it used to. If you are worried about these facial issues, then Dr. Perlman and his staff can help.

Dr. Perlman uses a new, non-animal based filler called Restylane to help treat those fine lines, wrinkles, folds, and creases. Restylane uses a biodegradable gel that’s composed of hyaluronic acid. This filler adds volume to the skin through small injections rather than a single big one. In turn, this evens out facial folds and wrinkles.

Restylane Explained

Restylane is a non-animal based filler that is effective in treating those skin imperfections which form as you age. Restylane can also be used to restore the volume of the skin under your eyes, enhance your cheekbones, and aid in chin augmentation. This is a fantastic non-surgical way to ensure that your facial proportions are well-balanced and reverse the aging effects. However, individual results may vary, so be sure to converse with Dr. Perlman about the results you are looking for.

The Procedure

Before your treatment, you will be evaluated by Dr. Perlman to ensure that you are in good health, and he will take the results you are looking for into consideration. This is all during the initial evaluation that he will perform. The treatment is done right at Dr. Perlman’s office with the use of a local anesthetic to ensure there is no discomfort throughout. He will then inject the Restylane under your skin using DermaSculpt’s microcannula to reduce the amount of downtime, pain, and bruising that can occur. The treatment approach is very gradual, ensuring that your fine lines and wrinkles are all treated to your desired satisfaction. Once the procedure is done, you can return to your normal activities that same day with minimal discomfort.

What Areas Can Be Treated With Restylane?

There are several kinds of Restylane that can be used for different areas of your face. This includes lips, cheeks, facial folds, and wrinkles. They’re all hyaluronic acid–based fillers, but each one was designed with a different specific purpose.

  • Restylane Silk is the first FDA-approved filler designed for lip augmentation and for wrinkles around your mouth.
  • Restylane Lyft is for cheek augmentation and midface contour deficiencies as well as things like laugh lines. It provides more volume and fullness.
  • Restylane is used for facial wrinkles and folds, lip augmentation, and tear troughs (dark circles under your eyes).
  • Restylane Refyne is used for wrinkles that can occur from your nose to the corners of your mouth.
  • Restylane Defyne is also used for wrinkles around your nose and mouth.

Because of the different kinds of Restylane and the various parts of the face for which it can be used, talk with Dr. Perlman about your desired results and he will work with you to choose the right filler option for you.

What Is DermaSculpt’s Microcannula?

DermaSculpt is a very blunt and flexible tip that makes filler injections more comfortable and safe for patients. It does not cut through blood vessels or nerves, leaving you in less pain or discomfort. Dr. Perlman has integrated this technique to ensure that his procedure leaves you with no bruising, pain, downtime, or swelling. Rather than being confined to just one area, the design of the microcannula allows one site of injection to deliver the filler wherever it is needed to help collagen growth.

Recovery from Restylane

Once Dr. Perlman has performed the procedure, he will go over with you how to care for your skin for the best possible outcome and results. For the first few days after the initial treatment, some patients may experience some redness, swelling, tenderness, bruising, and itching. These symptoms can take up to a week to dissipate, but they do not prevent patients from participating in work and other activities the same day as their treatment.

Restylane Facts

Hyaluronic acid based

Restylane is a line of hyaluronic acid–based facial fillers that help smooth wrinkles and plump your cheeks and lips. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in our skin, especially in connective tissue. It’s typically used in cheeks, lips, nasolabial folds, and around your mouth.

FDA-Approved Filler

Restylane was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2003. It’s not approved for use in those under the age of 21. Common side effects include swelling, bruising, pain, itching at the injection site, and headache.

Convenience & Efficacy

Most people see results immediately after the procedure, since the volume underneath your skin starts smoothing out wrinkles right after the injection. Complete effects can be seen within 1-2 weeks. The procedure is performed with local anesthesia and typically takes less than an hour. There is no downtime.
