Ask the Doctor: Perlane

Article-Ask the Doctor: Perlane

Q: I heard about Perlane being approved just recently. What is it and how is it different from other fillers?a: Perlane is a new form of Restylane, a filler used for plumping lips, cheeks and other areas around the face. Perlane has a little more longevity than Restylane and can be used for deeper wrinkles. It lasts for more than six months in most people, and has little or no downtime associated with it, although some people may have bruising or swelling, as with other fillers. Made from hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that is actually produced in your own body, Perlane is associated with very few reactions, and most people tolerate it very well. We performed the trials on Perlane and our patients seemed to like it, so I am enthusiastic about its potential.
