What is Perlane®?
Part of the Restylane® family of dermal fillers, Perlane® is an injectable hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. This treatment is better suited to treat deeper set wrinkles and fine lines than other Restylane® products. Over three clinical studies, it was found that 63%, 71%, and 75% of patients maintained improvements in the appearance of their deep wrinkles for six months after a single Perlane® treatment.
How Does it Work?
Perlane® operates in the same basic way that other Restylane® products do; it uses a hyaluronic acid-based gel to attract water molecules that infuse wrinkles and fine lines with added volume and moisture. What makes Perlane® different from these other products is the average size of each gel particle and the depth of injection. Unlike Restylane®, Perlane® is injected into the deep dermis. And because the average particle size is larger, this gel is better able to fill in larger areas of loose or wrinkled skin.
What can it Treat?
This exciting injectable can be used to successfully treat deep wrinkles and fine lines in a way that no other dermal filler available on the market today can. Perlane® is particularly well suited to address deep-set nasolabial lines.
What is Perlane® Treatment Like?
Each Perlane® injectable treatments takes less than an hour to complete. Following treatment, most patients experience results that last at least six months. While possible side effects include swelling, redness, pain, bruising, and tenderness at the injection site, most patients don’t experience any significant downtime after treatment.
For patients looking for a solution to deep-set wrinkles and fine lines that doesn’t involve surgical or laser procedures, Perlane® might be the ideal alternative aesthetic treatment. We’re proud to offer this injectable to our patients in the Worcester and Chelmsford, MA areas.
