Perlane vs Restylane: Which is Right for You? 

As cosmetic injectables have rapidly risen in popularity, so has the number of choices available in these formulas. With so many products to choose from, how do you decide which is going to work best for you? 


Perlane and Restylane are two popular choices, and while they share a number of similarities, they are also different. It is these differences that can help you distinguish between the two and determine which is the best choice for your specific goals. 

How Perlane and Restylane are Similar 

Both Perlane and Restylane are dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the body which plays an important role in keeping your skin hydrated and volumized. 

As you age, you produce less of this substance, resulting in loss of skin elasticity and loose skin in areas such as the cheek and jawline. These two fillers help restore hyaluronic acid to the area, making you appear more youthful and fresh. 

How are these two injectables administered? Both Perlane and Restylane are administered by injection and they involve little discomfort and no downtime. 

What are the side effects? Both fillers may result in mild redness and swelling around the treatment area, which typically subsides 1-2 days after your treatment.

How long do the results last? The results from Perlane and Restylane are long lasting (up to six months) but are temporary, which means that regular treatments will be required to keep up your results. 

How Perlane and Restylane Are Different

While these two dermal fillers are very similar, they also have distinct differences, which is why it’s important to talk to your plastic surgeon about which one is right for you. 

Particle Size

  • Restylane contains very small particles which provide a smooth result to delicate areas such as the eyes and lips. The injections will be administered very close to the surface of your skin, which makes Restylane ideal for superficial lines around the  mouth, nose, and chin. 

  • Perlane has bigger particles, which means it works for more defined facial creases. The injection will be placed deeper in the skin’s surface so that deeper wrinkles can be eliminated. 


Treatment Areas

Restylane has been approved for treatment of the lips and more superficial wrinkles and lines, while Perlane’s approval is restricted to treating deeper facial creases such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines. 

Perlane and Restylane Combination Treatment 

For some patients, a combination of these two dermal fillers can be used to achieve the best possible results, erasing wrinkles while restoring a youthful facial volume. 

It is always important to talk to your plastic surgeon about the best treatment options for your specific concerns. During a consultation, your concerns and goals will be evaluated to determine which filler, or combination, can help you achieve the safest and best results.

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
