Restylane® treatment is a cosmetic dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that exists in the human body. It can effectively fill in the nasolabial folds and plump lips. Restylane® lasts about 6 months for most people -- twice as long as collagen-- so treatments are typically scheduled twice a year.
Perlane® is similar to Restylane® and is made from non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA) gel. No pre-testing is required, since hyaluronic acid is a substance that exists in the human body. The difference between the two products is that the particles in Perlane® are larger than in Restylane®, which take longer for the body to break down. It is for this reason that Perlane® lasts longer than Restylane®.
Radiesse® is FDA approved to safely correct wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth. It lasts longer than many of the popular fillers on the market, which means fewer injections and office visits. Radiesse® also stimulates your skin to produce new collagen and treatment can be done over your lunch hour. Radiesse® is made of unique calcium-based microspheres that are suspended in a natural gel that is injected into the skin through a simple, safe and minimally invasive procedure.
