Perlane®, an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid injectable filler, is used to fill in deeper wrinkles and folds around the eyes, cheeks and mouth, adding volume and lift to the face. As we age time and overexposure to the sun cause the hyaluronic acid that occurs naturally in our skin to diminish. Perlane® is a natural, non-allergenic substance used to replace the hyaluronic acid lost by the body as the skin ages.
Administered by a physician, Perlane® contains larger filler-particles compared to other injectable fillers, making it an excellent choice for deep wrinkles, creases and scars. Furthermore, the results seen with Perlane® treatment are immediate and last up to a year. Minor discomfort is associated with Perlane® injections, which your physician can reduce by using a topical anesthetic. After the treatment patients have almost no downtime however, there may be some temporary redness, swelling, itching or tenderness in the treatment areas which usually disappear within a few days.
