If I get cheeks filled with Restylane (dermal fillers) or perlane filler. How long will it work?

Fillers. Injections into the cheeks is an off label use of these products, Restylane (dermal fillers) and perlane can last 6-12 months. Be sure to have your face evaluated by a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
Restylane (dermal fillers) Dear sublimeandetiz, -restylane generally lasts about a year in the cheeks depending on your metabolism -it looks great and really rejuvenates the face best regards, nima shemirani.
What you really want. What you really want to know is how long will the result last. The material may last about 9-12 months, but they are about as soft as warm jelly. They ooze and move slowly. If you have lost a lot of volume, they may ooze down to bone and look like they are gone, but they are still there, stimulating collagen growth. You may need more than 1 treatment to get long lasting results.
3-6 months. Restylane (dermal fillers) is a poor choice for injecting cheeks. It does not last very long and is not very structural. Perlane is better and is a good choice because it is reversible. I prefer Radiesse for cheeks because it is a firmer substance and lasts considerably longer. Radiesse is not reversible so only get it from very experienced practitioners.
9-12months. Fillers typically last about 9-12 months once you have complete correction radiess is about 12-15 months if not longer. Maintain your weight b/c that is the biggest reason why patients feel it doesnot last. Increase and loss of facial fat with weight loss is not loss of filler but loss of your facial fat.
Cheek rejuvenation. Depends on the product. Be sure to seek an experienced injector, as he/she will be able to give you the best treatment for your specific face. Restylane (dermal fillers) lasts 6-12 months depending on location. I prefer sculptra for volumizing the face as it is long lasting and builds up your body's own collagen. Sculptra is only sold to facial plastic surgeons, plastic surgeons and cosmetic derms. Good luck!
Restylane (dermal fillers) & Perlane. Depending on the amount of correction and injection strategy, Restylane (dermal fillers) or Perlane can last between 9 to 15 months.

Particle size. You are correct, both are made from the same base compound (hyaluronic acid). Difference is in that these molecules are bonded together differently. Perlane (dermal fillers) has more bonded together forming a larger "particle" (still very small, not visible to the eye). Given this size, the Perlane (dermal fillers) is usually recommended for deeper lines and creases. Read more...
Perlane (dermal fillers) thicker. Perlane is a thicker version of Restylane (dermal fillers) so lasts longer and gives more volume due to the larger particle size, therefore you get more "bulk" and lifting with perlane. These properties make Perlane more suited for deeper folds such as nasolabial folds and marrionette lines whereas Restylane (dermal fillers) is better for lips and tear trough where the skin is thinner.

My old derm suggestd Perlane (dermal fillers) for my cheeks but I want Voluma for more long-term results. As patient can I insist on Voluma? Or shld I get a 2nd opinion?

Perlane (dermal fillers) or Voluma. While both Perlane (dermal fillers) and Voluma are injectable hyaluronic acid gels for soft tissue augmentation, Voluma is recommended for deeper tissue placement and is reported to last up to two years. The cost of Voluma is significantly more than other fillers. You can insist on a certain filler, sure, but also seek the wisdom of an experienced doctor and determine the reasoning behind the recommendation. Read more...
Voluma . Voluma works great for mid facial volume filling lasting up to 2 years. Because it is a newer FDA approved filler, some providers may not be trained or comfortable in its technique.

Do perlane (dermal fillers) injections hurt? I don't like shots much. I'm always worried they're going to hurt. I'd really like to get perlane (dermal fillers), but I'm worried the injections might hurt..

Some . Some injectable fillers- like Perlane (dermal fillers) are available with a numbing medication mixed in. Topical Lidocaine on the skin will help alleviate the discomfort. After pre-treament, the injection of the filler feels more like pressure than pain. Read more...
If . If you are not numbed before hand, then, yes! the use of topical anesthetic works very well to almost completely eliminate any injection pain. The dental injections to numb you hurt almost as much as the filler injections. I do not recommend fillers with lidocaine, in my opinion, it is useless. The pain come from the needle, not the filler. The anesthetic in the fillers only numbs you after it has been injected. Therefore, Lidocaine is just a waste of space. It takes up 20% of the volume in the filler syringe. So the immediate results you see will deminish by 20% within a few hours. When i was trained, they were thrilled to have a dentist, since i already knew how to handle a needle and give dental injections, plus I have an anesthetic reversal agent in house. After doing my first filler, after training, with dental numbing, I have not done it that way since. My first was my hygienist. I had to do a touch up 4 days later because i misjudge the amount of filler due to the volume added to her face with the dental anesthetic. I only use topical anesthetic for the touch up. She told me to never dental numb another patient because she felt no more pain with the topical than with the needle numbing. She told me the dental numbing hurt the most. I now only dental numb to fill lips. Read more...
