Perlane® Sewickley, PA
Recently FDA approved, Perlane is a welcome addition to the growing family of cosmetic fillers. The makers of Restylane introduced Perlane as a “big sister” to Restylane. Perlane® restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds).
Perlane is made of non-animal-based hyaluronic acid, similar to Restylane. The difference between the two fillers is that the hyaluronic acid molecules in Perlane are larger. Therefore, the filling potential is greater. The larger molecules also contribute to the longevity of Perlane.
Perlane is expected to last approximately 12 months. Patients are happy when it is used in the nasolabial folds and in the lips. Perlane, as does Restylane, requires no pre-testing. Perlane is injected directly into the skin in tiny amounts by an ultrafine needle, resulting in minimal discomfort. This 10-minute procedure is simple and convenient with virtually no downtime. The results are instantaneous and long-lasting.
