Perlane, which was re-branded to Restylane Lyft in August of 2015, is a sister product to Restylane. It is a thicker gel with better support and typically lasts 2-3 months longer than traditional Restylane.
Restylane Lyft (Perlane) injections are most common in the following facial areas: temples, cheeks and nasolabial folds (around the nose and mouth). Because it is thicker than traditional Restylane, we are able to create more dramatic volume and lift in the mid-face area between the ears and nose and around the cheekbones.
As we age, our skin thins, sags, and loses volume. Collagen and elastin, the skin’s building blocks, break down to leave skin sallow and less pliable. Suddenly, everyday expressions like frowning or smiling begin to highlight creases. Wrinkles and hollow areas begin to form as time continues to progress and more volume is lost. Of course, this is unavoidable – but it’s not unstoppable. Perlane is a perfect way to replenish volume and provide some lift to your beautiful features.
All hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers work in similar ways. HA has the unique ability to absorb many times it’s weight in water (up to 1,000x). When injected, HA provides volume to facial features by attracting water. Perlane differs from Restylane due to a larger particle size. This difference equips Perlane to better penetrate deeper wrinkles. Meanwhile, the larger particle size accounts for the longer window of effect.
Very similar to Restylane, Perlane is a dermal filler made from a naturally occurring substance in the body, hyaluronic acid. Free of animal products, Perlane requires no allergy testing prior to treatments Side effects are extremely rare, typically consisting of short-lived redness or bruising of the injection site. Injections themselves take less than 10 minutes and the true joy of Perlane is the long-lasting effect: up to 4-8 months, longer than collagen treatments. The restorative effects of Perlane are enjoyed immediately after treatment.
