One of the newest, but longest-lasting, dermal fillers on the market, Perlane® has made a name for itself among facial rejuvenation and anti-aging skin care patients for wrinkle removal and lip augmentation. Perlane uses a hyaluronic acid-based gel similar to Restylane® but, due to higher concentrations of hyaluronic acid in the non-animal-based filler, the effects of Perlane last longer and are more successful at treating deep scars and facial folds.
Some of the many popular uses for Perlane® include:
- Wrinkle removal
- Eliminating crow's feet, laugh lines, smoker's lines, and worry lines
- Chin augmentation
- Cheek enhancement
- Lip augmentation and redefinition
- Reducing acne scars
- Reducing deep nasolabial folds
- Filling in deep hollows in the face and under the eyes
- Creating a quick eyebrow lift
- Softening jowls
With so many options in facial rejuvenation, patients often rely on Perlane® injections as their main weapon against anti-aging.
How Does Perlane® Work?
Perlane's non-allergenic, natural filler is injected into treatment areas on the face to help bind the skin's natural tissues, and to replenish the skin's deteriorating collagen levels. The result is younger-looking, smoother, more supple skin that's noticeable immediately, and that can last for up to a year!
Am I a Candidate for Perlane®?
Perlane's long-lasting anti-aging effects can work wonders for anyone from 25-year-olds with premature wrinkles, to individuals in their late 50s seeking facial enhancement. Since Perlane® results last longer than most other dermal fillers, patients who have never used dermal injectables before should discuss the treatment in detail with their aesthetician, to ensure the results are what they're wanting. Perlane is also one of the safest dermal injectables because its naturally occurring substances are non-allergenic and non-animal-based.
How Much Does Perlane® Cost?*
Average Cost Per Treatment: $562 (for one treatment area)
Total Cost of Treatment Package: $500-1000 (follow-ups optional)*
*Cost of Perlane® treatments may vary based on the area being treated, the length of treatment, the amount being administered, or the geographical region where Perlane is performed.
Is Perlane® an InPatient or an OutPatient Procedure?
How Long is a Perlane® Treatment Session?
Perlane injections typically require about 30 minutes to perform, depending on the amount being administered.
Are Perlane® Treatments Painful?
Perlane® injections may cause some minor discomfort at the injection site, but patients can choose to apply a topical anesthetic prior to treatment to reduce sensitivity.
Is There a Recovery Time for Perlane® Injections?
Most Perlane patients are able to resume normal activities that same day.
Does Perlane® Have any Side Effects?
Possible side effects include temporary redness, swelling, bruising, numbness, or itching at the injection site. If any of these symptoms occur, they should disappear within 3-7 days. Redness and bruising can easily be covered with makeup after treatment, while any soreness can be treated with an over-the-counter pain reliever.
How Long Do Results Last With Perlane®?
Perlane injections can ensure younger-looking, wrinkle-free skin results for up to a year, depending on the patient. As with Restylane, Perlane patients might not see the same length of results for lip augmentation that they do for facial rejuvenation.
Will my Insurance Cover Perlane® Injections?
Because Perlane® is classified as a cosmetic procedure, most insurance providers will not cover treatment costs.
Can I Combine any Treatments with Perlane® Injections?
Yes, in fact, many cosmetic specialists recommend pairing certain skin rejuvenation treatments together for even better anti-aging results. Perlane patients often choose to give their skin an additional boost with other dermal injectables such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, Radiesse™ or Restylane® treatments. Your skincare provider can help you decide what treatment package is best suited to your individual skin goals.
Is Perlane® Referred to by any Other Terms?
Dermal injectable, dermal filler, filler, lip filler, lip augmentation, lip plumper, wrinkle removal, wrinkle filler, and facial rejuvenation.
