How does Perlane® work?
Just like Restylane®, Perlane® is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid, adding volume and fullness to the skin. The most commonly observed side effects are swelling, redness, pain, bruising, and tenderness at the injection site. These are typically mild in severity and resolve in less than 7 days in nasolabial folds.
What makes Perlane® different from Restylane?
What makes Perlane® different than Restylane® is the average size of the particles and the depth of injection, which means it’s a good choice for more severe facial wrinkles that benefit from a deeper injection into the skin. If you want a more youthful appearance, but you’re concerned about the potential discomfort from treatment, you can get beautiful results and a more comfortable Perlane experience. By combining lidocaine with Perlane, Perlane-L helps reduce discomfort during and after treatment.
In clinical studies evaluating the Restylane® family of products in laugh lines (nasolabial folds):
– 95% of patients reported significantly less pain during treatment with Perlane-L vs. Perlane
– Patients continued to experience less discomfort for up to one hour after treatment
– Perlane® and Perlane-L are not approved for use in lip enhancement. Perlane-L should not be used by anyone with a known allergy to lidocaine.
