IS Restylane® RIGHT FOR ME?

Dr. John D. Bruno can explain the differences in the family of products manufactured by MEDICUS. The primary difference is the size of the gel particle, and this is important as Dr. Mazza uses it to match the product to the degree of desired correction.

Dr. Mazza understands that each person is unique and bases his recommendation and amount of facial fillers needed on the location(s) of the wrinkles, lines or folds, the desired result, and longevity of the product.


Restylane-L® and Perlane® contain HA, which is a non-animal-based filler. Because HA is a natural occurring substance found in the body there is virtually no risks of allergic reactions.

When combined with the body’s own hyaluronic acid, Restylane-L® and Perlane® add volume to the face and are especially helpful in shaping and adding fullness to the lips. As previously mentioned, Dr. Mazza will help you decide which product is best for you.

The Restylane-L® and Perlane-L® products are a clear gel containing a small amount of lidocaine to help reduce discomfort during the treatment process. Restylane-L® contains 0.3% lidocaine. Patients report significantly less pain during and after the injection process when using these products.

Dr. Mazza performs all injections of dermal fillers. Using precision, Dr. Mazza injects Restylane-L® and Perlane® into the skin using an extra-fine needle so there is minimal discomfort. Once injected, the gel begins working immediately to lift and add volume to the treated area(s). Dr. Mazza carefully molds and shapes the gel for that there are no lumps and bumps.

No downtime is needed as patients resume their daily activities after treatment.
