Perlane® restores volume and fullness to the skin correcting moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Made from a water soluble substance that is already present in your skin called hyaluronic acid, Perlane® restores volume to your skin. Perlane® wrinkle treatment can help you look younger and more relaxed without surgery.
The wrinkle-reducing effects of Perlane® injections are not long-lasting, but results are instant. Although results vary, they typically last about six months and can be repeated as necessary. Perlane® is injected into the skin with thin needles, causing facial wrinkles and folds to be “filled,” adding volume to areas that have become creased as a result of aging. The injection process only takes about ten minutes, and most patients do not need anesthesia, although a topical anesthetic can be applied, if desired.
