Get the lift you've been looking for—Perlane— for the correction of deep facial wrinkles and folds.
Perlane® is part of the Restylane family of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, the world's best-selling and most-studied dermal filler. Like all HA fillers, Perlane mimics the substance in the skin that gives it its elasticity, lift and volume. Perlane helps smooth away the appearance of severe facial wrinkles and folds by returning HA to targeted areas under the skin. Perlane is different from Restylane in that it contains larger gel particles that are specifically designed for deep facial lines and creases, such as those that run from the nose to the corner of the mouth (nasolabial folds).
Perlane is a non-surgical treatment for deep or severe facial lines and folds. During the procedure, Dr. Stover will inject Perlane deep under the skin to restore lift and volume to severely sagging areas of the skin. Perlane can be used as the primary supporting, firming layer either as a stand-alone product or in conjunction with other cosmetic fillers like Radiesse® or Sculptra® to provide an extremely natural-feeling, soft upper layer. Dr. Stover will determine the most advantageous course of treatment, depending on the patient's unique facial conditions and desired appearance goals.
The effects of Perlane will be immediately noticeable. There is no recovery time and patients can immediately resume normal activities. As with most injections, patients should expect some swelling and bruising, which will usually subside within 3 to 10 days. Treatment with Perlane generally lasts about six months. For even longer-lasting results, talk to Dr. Stover about an additional treatment at either 4.5 or 9 months. With two treatments, many patients can enjoy corrective results for as long as 18 months.
Perlane and Perlane-L (with lidocaine) are part of the Restylane Collection of products, the world's best-selling cosmetic filler for the correction of facial lines, creases and folds. Perlane is a crystal-clear hyaluronic acid filler comprised of larger gel particles specially designed for deep and severe facial wrinkles. The gel particles in Perlane attract and bind to water molecules in the skin, providing a firming lift and added volume.
Perlane and Perlane-L are available in Hawaii through Dr. John D. Stover's Cosmetic Centers of Hawaii. Dr. Stover is a board-certified cosmetic surgeon and a board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon with offices in Kona, Hilo and Waimea on the Big Island of Hawaii.
