Perlane® Dermal Filler
Like Restylane®, Perlane® is based on hyaluronic acid, but has a higher concentration of acid. This makes Perlane® more effective for deeper wrinkles and larger facial folds. Restylane® does a better job for fine lines and can also be used to prolong Perlane® results.
Perlane® provides volume to aging skin, which lacks hyaluronic acid. It is biodegradable and is eventually absorbed harmlessly by the body. Results of a Perlane® treatment last usually last for six to eight months.
The most popular uses for Perlane® are:
- Lip enlargement, or lip augmentation
- Firming up the lip border by filling in tiny lines
- Filling cheek depressions
- Reducing acne scars
- Smoothing smile lines and smoker’s lines
- Reducing crow’s feet
- Filling in worry lines
Sometimes Perlane® is also used to fill in the hollows beneath the eyes, smooth out jowls, and correct facial depressions which appeared after weight loss.
