What is Restylane®?
Available in over 70 countries, Restylane® is the world’s most popular gel filler. The main ingredient in Restylane® is hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in human skin that enables water molecules to bind, which helps the face maintain volume and provides skin its firmness.
Restylane® is a supple and fluid hyaluronic acid gel that is used to fill in fine lines and more delicate areas like the lip line and around the eyes. Perlane® also contains hyaluronic acid but in a firmer, more-concentrated sculpting gel. Dr. Tremblay uses Perlane to fill in deep furrows, reshape cheeks and redefine the chin.
“It’s both scientific and artistic,” he says, “and each face has its own unique needs. The treatment plan and choice of products are tailored to each individual.”
What areas can be treated with Restylane and Perlane?
The most frequently treated areas are the lips, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, temples, temples, eyebrows and face and cheek contours.
Why undergo a Restylane or Perlane treatment?
The aim, says Dr. Tremblay, is to restore the skin’s firmness and contours by restoring volume, which results in a healthy appearance. Dr. Tremblay’s approach is always conservative, gradual and natural. The end result is a revived, fresh and firm appearance, not an inflated or deformed one.
How is a Restylane treatment performed?
After a consultation, Restylane can be injected in just a few minutes and the visible improvement is almost immediate. Full results however will be seen in 2 to 4 weeks after the treatment Restylane results are generally visible for at least 12 to 18 months with a single treatment. Since 2010, Restylane L® and Perlane L® contain Lidocaine (an anesthetic agent) that minimizes any discomfort associated with the injection.
