Perlane is a dermal filler that adds volume to moderate to severe facial folds. It is made of hyaluronic acid, which attracts and absorbs water in the skin. Unlike other dermal fillers, which are injected into the superficial layers of the skin to treat mild facial wrinkles, Perlane is designed for injection deep within the skin, where it minimizes the appearance of more advanced lines and folds on the surface.
Did you know…
that Perlane is similar to Restylane? In fact, they are nearly identical. Both add volume and smooth wrinkles using hyaluronic acid. The difference is that Perlane is a thicker formulation designed for treating areas that require deeper dermal filling, such as the more severe folds that surround the mouth and nose. Perlane’s formulation also features results that last longer on average than Restylane.
