Perlane® - Facial Rejuvenation
Perlane is an injectable gel. The gel is made from a safe natural substance, hyaluronic acid. Perlane’s larger gel particles provide support at the deep layers of the skin.
You will have a consultation with your doctor prior to your treatment. Your doctor will examine your skin and listen to your concerns. You should tell your doctor about your expectations. Together, you will formulate a treatment plan just for you.
You can receive Perlane injections in your doctor’s office. There is no need to wait for a skin test. The treatment is quick and easy. Most treatments last less than 30 minutes.
Perlane injections may cause temporary minimal discomfort and swelling. Most areas of the face can be treated with a topical cream to numb the face first, although certain areas may not require numbing prior to treatment. However, if you prefer to receive a local anesthetic before your treatment, just mention it to your doctor. The effects of Perlane last for about 4-10 months, at which time, you may receive another treatment. It may be recommended to have retreatment within six months to maintain results. Retreatment most likely will require less amount compared to the initial treatment if performed within 6 months.
