Restylane is an FDA approved filler material. It has the consistency of smooth gel and is clear in color. Restylane also has a thicker counter-part; Restylane Lyft previously known as Perlane. Restylane is perfect for laugh lines (nasolabial fold), corners of the lips, Non-surgical blepharoplasty (under the eyes) as well as the lips. The difference between Restylane, Restylane Lyft (Perlane) and Restylane Silk are comprised of hyaluronic acid which mimics your body’s own hyaluronic acid creating lasting volume over time as well as after the first injection. The gel is also formulated with Lidocaine, an anesthetic that aids in pain management alone with the topical lidocaine applied in the office. Your procedure will be virtually painless and the use of fillers can dramatically improve facial symmetry, fullness as well as enhance features and get rid of fine lines and wrinkles. Depending on the area, Restylane, Restylane Lyft (Perlane) and Restylane Silk can last as long as six to twelve months. In the lips it lasts six to nine months due to the lip area being more active than the others.

How is Restylane, Restylane Lyft (Perlane) and Restylane Silk are used?
Dr. Mashhadian has taken the opportunity to be trained in the Cannula method. Rather than using the sharp tip of the needle and tearing tissue fibers and blood vessels which can cause bruising, one small hole is created with the needle, and then the blunt tip cannula is used to inject the material under the skin. This immensely reduces pain, swelling and bruising and makes for much more quick recovery which means faster results!
