Dermal Fillers & Restylane in Dallas
What are Restylane® and Perlane®?
Restylane® and Perlane® are injectable dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid. Both rejuvenate and refresh your appearance by smoothing away unwanted lines and bringing back the natural contours of your face. They are similar to other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers such as Juvéderm® and Voluma®. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in your body. As a sugar, it combines with water, absorbing it and binding it into the skin, which creates volume in the face—particularly in the lips, cheeks, and jawbone areas, as well as in the under-eye hollows. Hyaluronic acid used as a facial filler can even stimulate the skin’s own collagen production. In addition, if there is an overfill issue after a treatment, these products can be adjusted with an enzyme called hyaluronidase that can be injected to soften the unwanted fullness.
Hyaluronic acid keeps skin soft and moist all over the body. As skin ages and is exposed to pollution and ultraviolet rays, the cells lose their ability to produce it, so the skin begins to lose moisture and volume, causing the formation of facial wrinkles and folds.
Am I a good candidate for Restylane® and/or Perlane® Dermal Fillers?
Restylane® and Perlane® are excellent options for:
- Lip augmentation (lip injection)
- Tear Trough (correction of hollows under the eyes)
- Deep folds (correction around the mouth for “marionette lines” and nasolabial folds)
- Smile lines (correction of thin, superficial lines around the eyes, mouth and forehead)
- Correction of age-related volume loss and facial contouring (such as cheeks, chin and jowl correction)
Candidates for Restylane® and Perlane® may also be interested in other dermal fillers, including Voluma™ and Sculptra®, and in BOTOX® Cosmetic, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles by relaxing muscles that cause them to form.

When will I see the results of Restylane® and/or Perlane®, and how long will they last?
The results of a dermal filler treatment are immediate, have a natural appearance, and may last up to half a year or longer, depending on the specific filler and area addressed. There is no downtime associated with the injections.
Are dermal filler injections painful?
Some dermal fillers are formulated with, or may be combined with, lidocaine, which is a local anesthetic of the same sort as you might get before an involved procedure at the dentist’s office. It is used in a dermatologist’s office to minimize injection discomfort. Dr. Turner uses only microcannulas with round tips, as the shape ensures that the procedure is as painless as possible.
