WRINKLE FILLER AND FOR LIP ENHANCEMENT
|What if we told you that there was a new method for smoothing wrinkles and enhancing lips that was completely natural with no risk of allergic reaction? What if we also told you that the effects would last for 4 to 8 months and then dissolve into water and depart your body without leaving a trace? Well, it’s all true with Restylane and Perlane, two cosmetic fillers by by Q-Med Laboratories. Restylane and Perlane are non-animal based products derived from hyaluronic acid (present in all living organisms) in the form of a clear gel. Restylane is now FDA approved in the US. Once injected into the skin, it works with the body’s own hyaluronic acid to create volume.
In 1996, the biotechnology company Q-Med of Sweden created a genetically engineered version of hyaluronic acid (Restylane and Perlane). Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide, or natural sugar, that is found largely in the skin. Its primary function is to provide volume and pliability to the skin. The unique characteristic of hyaluronic acid is its ability to bind with water up to 1000 times its volume. This property makes it ideal as a filler agent, for even while hyaluronic acid filler is being naturally degraded it continues to attract more water to it. This characteristic allows it to hold its shape even longer.
If you want a more youthful appearance, but you’e concerned about the potential discomfort from treatment, you can get beautiful results and a more comfortable treatment experience with Restylane-L. By combining lidocaine with Restylane® , Restylane-L helps reduce discomfort during and after treatment.

|Below is a cross section of skin before a Restylane injection. As we grow older our skin loses its elasticity and lines form. These lines turn to wrinkles and the wrinkles turn to folds in the skin.
||A Restylane treatment will actually fill the depressions in the skin and smooth out the skins surface appearance resulting in a more youthful complexion.
Restylane can be used on any area of the face such as: worry lines, nasolabial folds (vertical lines extending from nose to chin), oral commissures (lines at the corner of the mouth), glabellar lines (frown lines), periorbital lines (crows feet), perioral lines (smokers lines) and smile lines.
