Perlane® is an injectable dermal filler used in cosmetic procedures to soften wrinkles and reduce lines and other depressions of the skin. Its natural ingredients and long-lasting results have quickly made Perlane® one of the leading cosmetic dermal fillers used today. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, hyaluronic acid-based fillers are the fastest growing non-invasive cosmetic procedure in the United States. Like other fillers, Perlane® is easy, safe and affordable. Perlane® is particularly effective in treating deeper lines and wrinkles, as well as fine lines and imperfections.
Perlane® can be used on wrinkles and lines across the face. It is especially effective on lines which stretch from the nose to the corners of the mouth, known as nasolabial folds. Perlane® is commonly used to decrease fine lines around the lips, mouth, nose and forehead that include crow’s feet, worry lines, frown lines and smile lines. It can also be used to enhance and augment the lips or chin, fill cheek depressions, redefine lip borders, soften acne or other facial scars and improve other facial depressions. Less commonly, it can also be used to fill hollows under the eyes, create a temporary eyebrow lift and soften the appearance of jowls. Most patients reach their desired results with just one injection; however, some required more than one.
Perlane® is a newer, safer alternative to collagen injections, and lasts nearly twice as long, with little to no side effects. Its natural consistency has no animal product and does not require any allergic test. Perlane® is made from non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA) gel, which is a transparent, adjustable material that can easily mold to the contours of the face. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body and serves to give skin its fullness. Over time, the amount of hyaluronic acid in our bodies decreases and our skin begins to fall or depress. When injected, the gel combines with existing water molecules in the skin tissue to increase volume and fullness back to a more desired amount.
