What is Perlane?
Perlane is an injectable cosmetic dermal filler that is used to soften wrinkles and facial folds.
Perlane is made from non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA) gel. This means that Perlane contains no animal products. Since hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the skin and other tissue, there is no need for a skin test when using Perlane filler.
How Long Does Perlane Last?
The hyaluronic acid in Perlane supplements the body's natural supply, which becomes depleted with age. The results of a Perlane filler treatment tend to last six months to a year.
How Is Perlane Used?
Perlane can be used in conjunction with Botox Cosmetic, which neutralizes the muscles that create wrinkles. The hyaluronic acid in Perlane can be used to improve the contour of facial skin and to reduce wrinkles, folds, scars, and other facial skin depressions.
Perlane contains a larger concentration of hyaluronic acid than Restylane. Because of this higher concentration of hyaluronic acid, Perlane is usually used for deeper folds.
