What is Perlane?
Perlane is FDA-approved for the treatment of wrinkles and lines in the nasolabial fold. The question then becomes: why choose Perlane instead of other injectable treatments?
As mentioned above, Perlane is a dermal filler. It’s made from a synthesized form of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance all people have in their bodies. Hyaluronic acids moisturize skin and give it a rich, full appearance.
Perlane works by plumping the skin in the treatment area, which smoothes away lines and wrinkles. It also attracts and binds water molecules, keeping the treatment area youthful and vibrant.
Perlane is closely related to Restylane, another dermal filler we offer. There are two significant differences between the two injectables. First, Perlane’s particles are much bigger than Restylane’s. Second, Perlane is injected at a much deeper level of the skin.
This makes it more appropriate for patients who are dealing with significant, severe wrinkles and lines in the nasolabial fold.
