The newest facial filler to receive FDA approval is Perlane. It provides volume and lifting power for effectively correcting facial wrinkles and folds – and it’s now available at Contour.
Perlane is the latest member of the Restylane® family of products from Medicis, a respected manufacturer. Like Restylane, Perlane is made of hyaluronic acid gel particles. But these particles in Perlane are larger, so they provide enhanced volume and lifting power that’s ideal for wrinkle and fold correction in deeper layers of the skin.
Also like Restylane, Perlane has an excellent safety profile. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body’s tissues, so there’s no risk of an allergic reaction. And Perlane has been safely used in Europe for years.
Perlane is ideal for lip enhancement – it restores a more natural, sensuous look. And it lasts up to twice as long as collagens implant treatments. Perlane also fills out deeper wrinkles and folds in the cheek area (nasolabial, melolabial and lines at the corners of the mouth). Most folds and wrinkles require one Perlane treatment that lasts six months or longer (again, about twice as long as regular collagen injections – but with no risk of allergic reaction).
Discomfort from Perlane injections is minimal, and you can resume normal activities immediately after treatment. The treatment site may have a little swelling for a few hours, and there may be some slight bruising that can be covered with make-up.
If you want to banish wrinkles but aren’t ready for surgery, Perlane may be the answer.
