Perlane FAQs


What is Perlane used for?


Perlane smoothens out deeper facial wrinkles and folds, such as the nasolabial folds (the lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth). It tends to last for approximately six months and has been found to be a safe dermal filler effective for restoring volume and firmness to the skin.


How does Perlane work?


Using an ultra-fine needle, Perlane is injected into the skin. It smoothes away any wrinkles by plumping the skin and its ability to attract water molecules allows the skin to maintain volume. Hyaluronic acid, a natural substance produced by the body, is the main component of Perlane and works by delaying breakdown by skin enzymes. Perlane is not derived from animals, nor does it contain any animal protein. Its quality ensures against disease transmission and no allergy pre-tests are required before use.


How long does Perlane last?


The effects of Perlane are long-lasting. Studies show that its results tend to last for about six months before disappearing from the body without leaving any remnants.


Is Perlane safe?


Since 2000, dermatologists all over the world have safely been using Perlane. When studied in multiple clinical trials, patients reported high satisfaction with Perlane. Side effects were mild and disappeared within a week. Perlane brought on no allergic reactions.


Who should not use Perlane?


People with bad allergies (especially to microorganisms, or gram positive bacteria), to drugs that have required hospitalization, or people who have bleeding disorders should not use Perlane. It should not be injected anywhere other than just under the skin.


What are some warnings to consider?


Perlane should not be used in areas of the skin where there are sores, pimples, rashes, hives, cysts, or infections that are not yet healed. Using Perlane in these sites can prolong the healing process or even make skin problems worse. Skin discoloration, bruising, swelling, redness, tenderness, pain, itching, or small bumps may occur at the site of injection. In most cases, these side effects wear off within a week. If they last any longer, contact the doctor who oversaw the Perlane injection. In rare cases, inflammatory papules (red, swollen bumps) may occur. Antibiotics may be needed to treat them.


What are some risks that may be experienced?


Perlane injections carry a theoretical risk of infection and scar tissue formation, much like all other similar procedures. When used by nursing mothers, patients under 18 or over 65 years of age, or in the treatment of lips Perlane's effectiveness and safety have not been proven. When using Perlane, African American patients may experience hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin), which could take several weeks to correct. If you have suffered from herpes, a Perlane injection may cause relapse. Perlane's safety when used in conjunction with other skin treatments like laser, mechanical, or chemical peeling, and hair removal has not been proven. Using Perlane before undergoing any of these procedures may render them ineffective or damaging. Avoid exposing the areas treated with Perlane to bright sunlight, UV lamps, and extreme heat and cold until any redness or swelling has subsided.


What are the major side effects?


In rare cases, the product may be inadvertently injected into a blood vessel, injuring the blood supply and damaging the skin. Rarely, a few people may develop an infection to the gel, which requires antibiotics to treat. Once the gel is absorbed, the injection will subside.


Do Perlane injections hurt?


Using an ultra-fine needle, tiny amounts of Perlane are injected into the skin. In order to maximize your comfort, be sure to discuss numbing medicines with your doctor.


How much do Perlane treatments cost?


Perlane is a treatment used according to individual needs. For this reason, the cost varies depending on the patient. Usually, the total cost is comparable to that of similar procedures. Since Perlane's effects are exceptionally long-lasting, it may be a good long-term investment. Discuss cost estimates with your doctor.


What is the dose of Perlane?


Perlane doses depend on the patient's preferences and their facial features. On average, patients who require correction of the wrinkles around the mouth will use less than one half of a teaspoon.
