Restylane and Perlane are both forms fillers using hyaluronic material utilized by various cosmetic experts such as those at Blue Point Medical Spa. Some people refer to the ingredient hyaluronic acid as the fountain of youth, because it is so effective at providing anti-aging results when used within the skin.
A Key Difference
Not only can it reduce the appearance and prominence of wrinkles, it can also offer various other rejuvenating benefits including benefits that alleviate joint pain and increase energy. Although Perlane and Restylane are similar products, they do have a few differences, for example, Perlane has a higher cross-linking than Restylane, which allows the product to remain sturdy within the tissue for a longer period of time, approximately four to six months longer than Restylane.
The Difference between the Products
Many doctors find that Restylane flows more easily than Perlane, which is extremely helpful throughout the edge of the lip and lower eyelid where it is easier to comprehend the difference in the skin after a treatment. Most cosmetic professionals recommend that Restylane should be used in the thinner areas of skin around the face because it is not particularly runny and is capable of holding the tissue appropriately whilst still allowing sculpting and manipulation by a Blue Point Medical professional.
Where to Use Perlane
The major difference between Perlane and Restylane is the size of their particles and how deeply they should be injected. Perlane is recommended for use on more prominent wrinkles, as it has larger particles suitable for deeper injection. It has been considered suitable for the treatment of:
- Mild or moderate mouth creases
- Plumping and lifting eyebrows
- Enhancing the shape of lips and defining the curved portion of the top lip
- Improving the contour and volume of the jawline, cheeks, and chin
Where to Use Restylane
Most doctors, such as those at Blue Point Medical Spa suggest that Restylane is ideal for use within the lower eyelid area and lip edge. In general, it is intended for dermal implantation at a medium to deep level and can be used to correct moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles. Restylane can also be used to:
- Improve the volume of skin beneath the eyes
- Provide implantation for lip augmentation
- Improve the appearance of the cheeks
- Enhance the glabella and perioral areas.
