What is Perlane? Perlane is another crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel based on hyaluronic-acid and an alternative to Juvederm, Restylane and Captique. Perlane contains 10,000 gel particles per cc/ml. The gel is injected with a very fine needle to enhance lip shape and create a plump and pouty look.
How does Perlane work and what are the advantages? It immediately lifts and adds volume to the areas being treated. The skin remains soft and natural to the touch as it does with most hyaluronic acid-based injectables. No skin test is required and there is no downtime.
Are Perlane results instantaneous? The result is immediate and produces a long-lasting, natural enhancement. You can expect to experience some swelling after the procedure, so your lips should be larger than the desired end result. Swelling will resolve within two to three days and lips will retain a full and sculpted look.
Do I need more than one Perlane treatment? Results can generally be obtained with one treatment, however, touch up treatments may be desired to further enhance the look.
How long can I expect Perlane results to last? Treatment results differ for each person, however, you can expect results to last from 4 and up to 7 months.
What are some of the possible Perlane side effects? There are no reported allergic reactions. The most common side effects with any injection include possible bleeding, and tenderness, redness, or swelling. These side effects last, on average, 2 to 3 day.
