Improve Facial Imperfections and Wrinkles – Instantly!
Your skin is going to change with age, but the good news is there’s something you can do about it!
Perlane® is an injectable dermal filler which restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds, such as the nasolabial folds (the lines from your nose to the corner of your mouth). It’s also a popular filler for facial depressions and facial scarring.
This filler is made from non-animal hyaluronic acid; therefore, it poses no risk of an allergic reaction and can be injected without pre- testing. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in your skin but diminishes with age resulting in the skin losing volume and increasing your chances of wrinkles and folds.
By plumping up the skin when injected, Perlane® flattens deep folds in the cheeks and chin. As part of a custom facial transformation treatment program by Dr. Roberta L Gartside, Perlane® can be combined with Dysport or Restylane® depending on the degree of work needed and the number of places that require more definition.
Perlane® is produced by the same manufacturer as Restylane® and uses the same chemical constituent, hyaluronic acid, commonly found in all human tissue, where it provides volume and fullness to skin. The hyaluronic acid used in Perlane® is manufactured synthetically from non-animal sources and then stabilized as a crystal-clear gel called NASHA™ (Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid). When injected, this form of hyaluronic acid binds with water in your skin, adding volume to plump the skin.
The Advantages of Perlane®
Containing more hyaluronic acid than Restylane®, Perlane® is ideal for more challenging wrinkles and deeper folds and for facial modeling and contouring. Perlane® is biodegradeable, meaning that it breaks down to form water and carbon dioxide and disappears completely from the body without leaving a trace.
An in-office procedure, Perlane® injections can take 30 to 45 minutes. It is injected directly into the skin at a deeper level than Restylane® using an ultrafine needle for minimum discomfort. In addition, a topical numbing cream or locally-injected anesthetic cream may be used.
Perlane® can help correct or define (non-surgically):
- Wrinkle correction
- Diminishing worry lines, smile lines, crow’s feet, marionette lines at corners of the mouth, and smoker’s lines
- Reducing the severity of nasolabial folds
- Chin augmentation
- Cheek augmentation
- Nose correction
- Eyebrow lift in facial rejuvenation
