Dermal Fillers






A natural, safe and long-lasting beauty lift
Impressions of beauty change over time, as do our faces as we age. One of the great advantages with the RESTYLANE, RESTYLANE Fine Lines and PERLANE is that they are long-lasting but not permanent. You always have the choice to continue or change the combination of treatments, and the procedure can be repeated as often as you like. You are always in charge of your looks.

Many people are looking for that slightly fuller shape for their chin. Just a touch of additional volume can make an enormous difference in your appearance. Or perhaps you want a rounder, more sensuous line along your cheeks? And lip fashions are always changing with the times. 

We have six approved products in the Hyaluronic Acid Range - Restylane, Perlane, Restylane Touch, Restylane Lipp, Restylane Vital and Restylany Vital Lite, and two products in the Collagen Range - Evolence Classic and Evolence Breeze - which together can meet various correctional needs. Our range of Dermal Fillers offer you a natural safe and long-lasting beauty lift. No other injectable implant can offer better results.

Natural beauty for as long as you like, the gels are slowly absorbed, which means that the effect is not permanent.

Natural beauty for as long as you like
How long a treatment holds its effect is very individual. This depends on many factors, such as your age, skin type, life style and muscle activity, as well as on the injection technique.

The Restylane gel particles are absorbed so slowly that you have ample time for maintenance treatment. As the gel breaks down, water takes its place. The less concentrated the gel becomes, the more water it is able to bind. These facts are the main reasons that Restylane treatments last so long. When totally absorbed the gel disappears unnoticed from the body.

Most patients choose to have a follow-up treatment six to twelve months after an initial treatment of wrinkles or facial contouring. After lip treatments, a follow-up is normally needed after about six months.

Treating wrinkles, lip enhancement and facial contours 
PERLANE, RESTYLANE and RESTYLANE Fine Lines work by volume augmentation. Small amounts of the product are injected directly into the dermis.

Smoothing wrinkles and folds
Optimal smoothing of age-related lines around the mouth and lip area are accomplished using combinations of all three products. For example, a deep fold can be treated by first injecting PERLANE and then by adding RESTYLANE on top.

Shaping facial contours
When creating volume in the contours of the face or correcting hollow cheeks, PERLANE is the right choice. It lifts skin from the cheeks and chin by adding volume in the deep layer of the dermis and/or surface layer of the subcutis. The soft, viscoelastic biodegradable gel adapts to the surrounding tissue. 

Lip sculpting
Many patients want fuller lips, a more pouting look or enhancement of the vermilion border. Lip augmentation with Restylane can be divided into two steps: Contouring and Pouting & Fullness. To achieve pouting and/or fullness both RESTYLANE and PERLANE can be used. To enlarge the vermilion border and/or to define the edge of the lip RESTYLANE is recommended.

Q. How long does the effect of a Q-Med Esthetics treatment of lines, wrinkles and folds last?
A. In general follow-up treatment is needed after 6 - 12 months. Clinical trials show that RESTYLANE is effective for up to one year after the treatment of wrinkles. However, the duration of treatment depends on many factors, such as the structure of the skin, lifestyle and age, degree of perfection demanded by the patient and the injection technique of the practitioner. Clinical experience indicates that touch-up and follow-up treatments will add to the duration.
Q. How long does the effect of a Q-Med Esthetics treatment of lips last?

Safety-related questions

Q. Are there any side effects or adverse reactionsAre there any side effects or adverse reactions?
A. Yes, some common injection-related reactions might occur, such as temporary redness, swelling, pain, itching, discoloration or tenderness at the implant site. Typically these resolve themselves, within one to two days after injection into the skin and within a week after injection into the lips.

Q. Can the products be used for patients during pregnancy or lactation?
A. Treatment with PERLANE, RESTYLANE or RESTYLANE Fine Lines during pregnancy or lactation has not been tested for and therefor are not advisable.

Q. Are there any known interactions with antibiotics?
A. Treatment with the products in combination with other drugs and devices has not been tested for.
Theoretically there is no basis for complications with commonly used antibiotics.

Q. Can patients with different kinds of allergies be more sensitive to the products?
A. So far, we have seen no connection between patients with allergies and patients that report a reaction to PERLANE, RESTYLANE or RESTYLANE Fine Lines.

Q. If a patient has had problems with recurrent facial cold sores or fever blisters, can a Restylane treatment contribute to another herpes simplex eruption?
A. There is a risk that the injection process itself, i.e. the insertion of a needle into the skin could contribute to another cold sore eruption.

Q. Should you give patients suffering from herpes ”special” treatment?
A. The physician in consultation with the patient should take a decision about preventing cold sore erruptions. 

Q. Can a person suffering from an autoimmune disease be treated with Restylane?
A. Clinical experience of treating patients with an utoimmune disease is very limited, but there is no indication of an increased risk. Theoretically there is no reason to assume that there should be an increased risk in treating these patients with Restylane.

Q. Are there more risks associated with PERLANE or RESTYLANE Fine Lines than with RESTYLANE?
A. No data exist that indicate a difference between RESTYLANE, PERLANE or RESTYLANE Fine Lines from a safety perspective.

Q. Can the products be used for patients who have undergone laser treatment or chemical peeling?
A. Yes, but it is recommended that these patients wait until the treated area is totally healed and the skin has normalized (normally 4 to 6 weeks).
