Perlane® restores volume and fullness to the skin, correcting moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds). After treatment, there might be some swelling, redness, pain, and bruising. This will normally last less than seven days. Although rare, red or swollen small bumps may occur. If the patient has had herpes, an injection can cause an outbreak. In rare circumstances, the doctor may inject into a blood vessel, which can damage the skin. To avoid bruising and bleeding, Perlane should not be used if the patient has recently used blood-thinning or anti-clotting drugs. Those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or under 18, shouldn’t use Perlane®.
Q What is Perlane® used for?
A Perlane® is used to smooth moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles such as the lines from
the nose to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds). Perlane® generally lasts for about 6 months. It has been found to be a safe dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin.
Q How does Perlane® work?
A Perlane® is injected into the skin with an ultrafine needle. It plumps the skin to smooth wrinkles and folds. Perlane®’s water-loving nature attracts and binds water molecules to help maintain volume. Perlane® is composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the body. The hyaluronic acid in Perlane® is a crystal clear gel, chemically cross-linked (the long chemical strands are tied together) to delay breakdown by skin enzymes. Perlane® is non-animal-based and free from animal protein. This quality prevents disease transmission.
Allergy testing prior to use is not necessary.
Q How long does Perlane® last?
A Perlane® is proven to deliver long-lasting results. Studies have shown that Perlane® effects last about six months as shown in the following graphs. Perlane® gradually disappears from the body without a trace.
