Skin ages because of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity. Many factors contribute to the aging of one’s skin, including the loss of hyaluronic acid, resulting in wrinkles and folds. But the Restylane family of products can be used to reveal a younger-looking you.
Among the Restylane family of products, Perlane can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin and correct facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Skin Perfect Medical offers Perlane skin enhancement at both of our skin treatment offices in Rancho Cucamonga and Whittier, California.
Perlane works immediately by adding volume to smooth away wrinkles. A clear gel hyaluronic acid, Perlane is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid. Perlane visibly reduces moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds for a younger-looking you. Perlane® and Perlane-L® are implimented deep into the dermis to superficial subcutis.
Perlane is one of several hyaluronic acid-based soft tissue fillers on the U.S. market. It is approved to treat moderate to mild creases around the mouth, but is used off label for plumping eyebrows, enhancing the lips, smoothing under-eye hollows, defining the cupid's bow (the curve of the upper lip), enhancing volume and defining contours of the cheeks, chin and jawline. Perlane can also be used to soften the appearance of scars and other depressed facial marks.
After your treatment, you might have some swelling, bruising, redness, pain, or tenderness. This normally lasts less than seven days. No animal products are used in Perlane, so an allergy test is not necessary. Perlane's results last about six to twelve months.
Perlane is comprised of biotechnologically engineered, non-immunogenic, stabilized hyaluronic acid gel particles. The three-dimensional gel particles in Perlane are hydrophilic molecules, attracting and binding to water molecules as they degrade, helping to maintain volume augmentation for about six months.
Skin Perfect Medical is Southern California's premier medical spa serving the communities around Brea, Upland, Whittier, San Bernardino and Orange counties providing Perlane treatments.
