Perlane was rebranded Restylane Lyft. It is an injectable gel filler for the correction of moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds. It contains hyaluronic acid and gel lidocaine (an anaesthetic related to cocaine). It is used to plump up the cheek, eye and chin areas of the face. It requires only one visit and the results can last up to 18 months.
WHAT TO EXPECT
A medical history including any allergies, Perlane is injected into the skin with an ultra-fine needle. Restylane is not suitable for anyone with a history of anaphylaxis, severe allergies, or bleeding disorders.

There is a small chance of patients having an allergic reaction; and a reasonable chance that you may experience some redness, swelliing, bruising and itchiness, but this normally passes within two weeks of treatment. The product dissolves at different rates in different people so its effects may not last as long as you might wish.
