Perlane® is an injectable cosmetic dermal filler that was developed by the creators of Restylane®. It is a clear gel composed of hyaluronic acid, just like Restylane, but Perlane® is designed especially for more pronounced facial folds and contour irregularities. The major difference is that Perlane® has a larger molecules when compared to Restylane®. This means that Perlane® can easily fill in deep skin wrinkles, scars, contour irregularities, and creases better than Restylane®. Restylane® on the other hand can be used to treat the finer lines. Perlane® will add volume and restore surface contour. It is a great choice for cheek, lip and chin augmentation, nasolabial folds, facial depressions, and facial scarring.
Perlane® corrections maintain volume augmentation for approximately 6 to 9 months before natural product degradation begins to lessen the effects. Most individuals will require a repeat session once a year. Dr. Brunner can combine your Perlane® treatment with other non-surgical treatments such as Botox®, other fillers or laser skin procedures. Very frequently, Dr. Brunner will use Perlane® to contour your cheeks, cheek augmentation, and deeper folds and simultaneously use Restylane® to smooth finer lines. Dr. Brunner will develop a treatment plan during your consultation that addresses your particular needs.
The majority of people treated are thrilled with their results and appreciate the immediate return to their busy schedules. There have been few reports of hypersensitivity reactions, but because it is so unlikely, it does not require skin testing. For further information about Perlane®, please schedule your consultation with Dr. Brunner at (609) 921-9497. We look forward to hearing from you!
