As the skin ages it loses volume and becomes less elastic, causing lines and folds to emerge.Dermal fillers are often used to combat the deflated appearance of the face, because they are able to restore volume and fill in lines and folds. Perlane is a dermal filler that is used to raise the skin, and combat the signs of aging.
What is Perlane made of?
Like Restylane and Juvederm, Perlane is derived from hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a natural substance that helps to give the skin lift and volume. HA is found naturally in the skin’s dermis but levels deplete as we age, and Perlane therefore helps to supplement the HA in the body. The HA particles found in Perlane are larger than those in some other injectable fillers, and this gives the product greater lifting power.
How is Perlane used?
Perlane is safe, high quality dermal filler that has been FDA cleared for correcting moderate to severe folds and wrinkles. It is used for the treatment of wrinkles, facial depressions, and nasolabial folds, especially those at the corner of the mouth, and in the midface region.
A very fine needle is used to inject Perlane into the deep dermal layer of the skin. Treatment time lasts for about 15 minutes, and topical anesthetic is not required. No recovery time is necessary, so patients can resume regular activities after the injection. There are few adverse effects related to Perlane injections, but when swelling does occur, it usually subsides within a few days.
