What is Perlane?
Perlane® is the newest member of the hyaluronic acid fillers available in the U.S. As we age, our production of natural hyaluronic acid begins to wane, causing skin to wrinkle and sag. Perlane is a biocompatible gel filler composed of hyaluronic acid that is typically injected deep into the skin with the intent of imitating natural hyaluronic acid by increasing volume in the face. With bigger particles than other dermal fillers, Perlane can be used to enhance lips or correct deep facial folds and facial wrinkles such as the nasolabial folds that occur from the nose to the corners of the mouth. It may also be used for shaping facial contour, such as the cheeks and chin.
Perlane® is comprised of three-dimensional gel particles in which molecules attract and bind water. This absorption property helps to maintain results of the augmentation for approximately six to nine months after an injection.
