Understanding Facial Fillers: What Is Perlane?
- Posted on: Mar 30 2017
Aging can wreak havoc on your skin, causing you to lose elasticity all across your face and body. If you have started to lose volume in your skin, you may want to consider getting facial injections to help plump it up and smooth it out. As one of the fillers that we at Associated Plastic Surgeons & Consultants like to use, Perlane will give you back a more youthful looking appearance. Read on to learn more.
Is It Safe?
One of the first things that our patients like to know before they get a new filler or injection is whether or not it is safe. All of the procedures that we offer at Associated Plastic Surgeons & Consultants are safe so you can rest easy that you will never have to worry. Made of hyaluronic acid, a chemical that is found naturally in your body, Perlane can get rid of fine lines and wrinkles on your face.
Fillers like Juvederm and Restylane are also made up of hyaluronic acid. However, unlike Juvederm and Restylane, Perlane can be used for all types of skin types to treat different types of fine lines and wrinkles. And because Perlane lasts around six to nine months on average, you won’t have to worry about getting injections too frequently.
What Is It Used For?
Similar to its sister fillers Juvederm and Restylane, Perlane is used to target the fine lines and wrinkles on the lower portion of the face— including the lips. By injecting small doses of Perlane around your nose and mouth, you will see noticeably different results.
Perlane injections offer patients a temporary way to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles around their nose and mouth. Additionally, it can also be used to add more volume to your lips— leaving you with a sexier mouth.
