Perlane® is a popular and very effective filler from the same comany that produces Restylane®.
What is Perlane® made of?
Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring chemical in the skin. When compared to Restylane®, Perlane® is made of larger hyaluronic acid particles. Perlane® attracts water into the injection area and is more effective than some other fillers at adding volume to facial folds. Expected duration of effects can be 6-12 months.
Do Perlane® injections hurt?
There is some discomfort associated with the injection. As with all fillers, a topical numbing cream can be applied prior to injection.
What are the risks of Perlane?
Like the other dermal fillers, risks include infection, bruising, and rarely an allergic reaction.
