Perlane is used to smooth moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles, as well as facial contouring. 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.
Just like Restylane, Perlane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your bodys own hyaluronic acid, adding volume and fullness to the skin. The hyaluronic in Perlane is a crystal clear gel that is chemically cross-linked to delay breakdown by skin enzymes. It binds water molecules to help maintain volume and is injected using ultra-fine needles and cannulas.
What makes Perlane different than Restytlane is the average size of the particels and the depth of injection, which means it’s a good choice for more severe facial wrinkles that benefit from a deeper injection. In three clinical studies 63% , 71% and 75% of individuals maintained an improvement for six months after just one treatment.
