Perlane-L Injectable Fillers

Restylane Lyft – formerly Perlane-L – rejuvenates Algonquin faces

Signs of aging show in the face earlier than anywhere else. Dr. Khanna uses injectable fillers such as Restylane Lyft (formerly branded as Perlane-L) at his practice in Algonquin, to correct deficiencies in contours of the mid-face, caused by loss of volume.

Understanding Restylane Lyft

Through the natural process of aging we lose facial volume. As fat, muscle, and bone diminish, the smooth, rounded contours of youth are replaced by flattened cheeks, a blurred jawline, and deep facial lines from the nose to the mouth.

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the human body, grabbing and holding hydration to lubricate joints and keep skin supple. Restylane Lyft contains hyaluronic acid in a gel base. It is injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume and improve the appearance of wrinkles.

Restylane Lyft contains larger gel particles than some other HA fillers, making it ideal for deeper volumization at the cheeks and midface, and to fill significant nasolabial folds. Dr. Khanna also uses it off-label at the chin, the pre-jowl sulcus (the areas on either side of the chin), and along the jawline. Placement of Restylane Lyft into these locations defines the jaw and rejuvenate a sagging neck.

L spells comfort

Dr. Khanna and the Dermatology Specialists of Illinois team take every precaution to ensure your wellbeing during each treatment. However, the “L” in Perlane-L, now Restylane Lyft-L gives an additional layer of assurance. It is your indication that the product is formulated with lidocaine, a local anesthetic that effectively reduces injection discomfort.

Restylane Lyft, marketed as Perlane-L in the past, is changing the way Algonquin area women and men feel about rejuvenation. In clinical trials, patients showed 95 percent improvement at two months, and long-lasting results with 73 percent improvement remaining at twelve months.
