Perlane®, a highly utilized filler product, is similar to Restylane®, and in fact is manufactured by the same company. It contains a larger concentration of hyaluronic acid, however, and therefore may be the product of choice in areas where deeper volumizing is indicated. This would include use on deeper folds, cheek depressions, and in softening the appearance of jowls.
Perlane® is injected into the skin in small amounts with a micro needle. Depending on the amount of correction desired, a local anesthetic may be used to ensure minimal discomfort during the treatment. The effects of this product can be expected to last a minimum of 6 months and perhaps longer.
