Perlane Facial Filler Treatment
Perlane is from the makers of Restylane and has been approved by the FDA. Like Restylane, Perlane is made from non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA) gel. Since hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the skin and other tissue, there is no need for a skin test when using either filler. The synthetic hyaluronic acid supplements the body’s natural supply, which becomes depleted with age.
Like Restylane, Perlane requires no pretesting, but patients should take a few precautions before being treated. Patients should avoid using vitamin E supplements, aspirin, or any similar anti-inflammatory medication prior to their Perlane treatment, because these may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site.
The difference between Restylane and Perlane is that the molecule in Perlane is about 4x larger, so it takes the body longer to break the product down. Perlane is also placed deeper in the dermis and has the ability to fill in folds with less material. Restylane typically lasts 6-8 months, whereas Perlane filler treatment typically last 6-12 months.
