We’re pleased to offer Perlane ® treatments, an exciting option for those who are looking for skin rejuvenation. Perlane is a mid-dermal filler for moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles and scar correction. Perlane ®, approved by the FDA in May 2007, is a “mid-dermal” Hyaluronic acid filler product. As a sister product to Restylane, it is designed for more pronounced facial folds and wrinkles as those on the sides of the mouth.
- FDA approved safe & natural fillers*
- Restore volume*
- Reduces lines and wrinkles*
- Results are long lasting*
- Minimal down time*
*Individual results will vary in each patient.
The science behind Perlane® is Hyaluronic acid, which is present in youthful skin but recedes and changes in structure as we age. The injections boost your natural supply of Hyaluronic acid, which will reduce signs of aging and enhance your best features.*
Gel treatments can diminish the appearance of:
- Smile lines (adjacent to the mouth)*
- Nasolabial folds (laugh lines, from nose to mouth)*
- Cheek Augmentation*
Come in for a consultation, and we’ll discuss if Perlane® treatments are right for you.
How is Perlane® different from Restylane®?
Both Perlane® and Restylane® are composed of Hyaluronic acid. The primary difference between Restylane® and Perlane® is that the Hyaluronic acid gel particles in Perlane® are larger than those found in Restylane®. This gives Perlane® additional ability to lift and fill the areas of injection that require a denser formulation. They are perfect complements to one another.
How do Perlane® and Restylane® work?
Perlane® is injected into the skin to smooth away wrinkles and folds. Perlane’s® water-loving nature attracts and binds water molecules to help maintain volume.*
Perlane® is composed of Hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the body. The Hyaluronic acid in Perlane is a crystal clear gel that is chemically cross-linked (the long chemical strands are tied together) to delay breakdown by skin enzymes. Perlane® is non-animal-based and free from animal protein. This quality prevents disease transmission. Also distinct from other Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, Restylane® and Perlane® are minimally cross-linked, making them similar to the natural Hyaluronic acid found in the body.
Can Perlane® be used in tandem with other fillers?
Natura Medspa finds that most facial correction needs beyond superficial lines will be restored most naturally by the use of product layers. Perlane® is the ideal “middle layer” for deep folds. Beginning with Radiesse in the very deep skin layer, we will add Perlane or Hyaluronic Acid filler as a topper.
“Much like the pillow top on a mattress, when used along with Radiesse, Perlane is supported by the firmer properties of Radiesse while offering a softer upper layer that is extremely natural to the touch.”
For other wrinkles or folds, Perlane® may be chosen as the support layer with Restylane or Juvederm used as the top product. Depending on the level of correction needed, we will recommend the most advantageous combination.
