Restylane, Juvederm, and Perlane are names of cosmetic injectable fillers. These products are also known as hyaluronic acid fillers or HA for Hyaluronic Acid, which is a natural substance found in all of our bodies and is responsible for lubricating joints. These products are manufactured in a synthetic form for the use of facial cosmetic enhancement. These fillers work by filling lines, wrinkles, and restoring volume in areas such as the tear trough (the hollows of the eyes), lips, laugh lines, hollows of the cheeks, the chin and jawline, and much more. Restylane, Juvederm and Perlane not only fill areas immediately, but they also attract water to the area over the several weeks after injection.
These products are extremely safe and are used not only by millions in the United States but in other countries as well. They also have a proven safety record with very little risk for allergic reaction which makes HA’s much safer than collagen and silicone.

At Celibre, we offer Restylane, Juvederm, and Perlane. Restylane & Juvederm are produced by two different manufacturers but have very similar benefits. Both are considered non-permanent and generally last approximately 3-4 months. Although the manufacturer of Juvederm (Allergan) has received FDA approval to state that Juvederm may last up to one full year, most practitioners will tell you that this is not typical. We are pleased with the ease of the product when shaping the face. Perlane is similar to Restylane & Juvederm but is a longer lasting filler. Because Perlane uses larger particles in its product, it is designed for deeper folds and is placed at a different depth within the tissue for optimal results and a natural filling effect.
The use of Restylane, Juvederm and Perlane has increased dramatically over the past several years as consumers discover the value of shaping the face to achieve dramatic improvement in the appearance of folds and wrinkles. When considering treatments, be certain to choose a practitioner that listens to your goals and involves you in the educational process and treatment plan.
