Perlane® | Dermal Filler
Wrinkles, creases and lines beware - Perlane® is now available at Toronto Cosmetic Clinic!
Perlane® is a hyaluronic acid based injectable filler that is designed to fill out the wrinkles and creases present on the face and reshape contours. Comprised of NASHA™ (non animal, stabilized hyaluronic acid), Perlane® is manufactured by the same company that brings you Restylane®.
What Perlane® Can Do
Add volume: This product can augment facial contours, reshaping the cheeks, chin and lips (lip augmentation), creating a more youthful looking appearance or achieving the overall facial shape you've always wanted. It's suitable for sunken cheeks, weak chins and thin lips.
Filling in wrinkles and folds: medium to severe folds on the face may be corrected, particularly nasolabial folds, those lines that extend from the outer corners of your mouth to the nose. Perlane® is made up of larger gel particles containing a higher amount of hyaluronic acid, and is designed to be injected into the deeper layer of the dermis (or the surface of the subcutis). It is indicated for deeper folds while its counterpart, Restylane®, has a lower amount of hyaluronic acid and is more suited to treat finer wrinkles and lines.
Filling in deep acne scars: deepset scars resulting from severe acne breakouts can be filled in with Perlane®.
Lasting up to half an hour, treatment with Perlane® involves an injection into the skin of the targeted area using an extremely fine needle. No allergy test is required. To ease discomfort, a topical anaesthetic may be applied beforehand. Immediately following the injection, improvement may be visible, however optimal results appear after the possible swelling and redness associated with injections subside (in about a week or less). Other side effects include itching and tenderness Mineral based makeup can be used to camouflage the area as it heals. There is no downtime, and regular activities may be resumed after treatment.
Like most other injectable fillers, results are temporary and last depending on the area, problem treated, and the injection technique. Generally speaking, results last anywhere from 6-9 months. Maintenance treatments may be scheduled to prolong results.
