What is a Perlane filler?
Perlane is a cosmetic dermal filler that can be injected into your facial folds and wrinkles so that they will become soft. It is one of the most popular fillers for lip augmentation, facial depressions and facial scars.
Perlane is made from non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid or what others may call NASHA gel. Perlane does not contain any animal products, so you do not have to worry about animal allergies when it is applied. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that is found in your skin and in other tissues. The hyaluronic acid in Perlane will complement the natural supply of hyaluronic acid in your body. Hyaluronic acid depletes as you age. Since Perlane is biodegradable, its effects will not be permanent. Its effects will last for about six to twelve months. Perlane lasts longer than the usual collagen injections, which last for three to six months. Perlane will not make you numb and it can even be used in unison with Botox. Botox neutralizes the muscles that create wrinkles, while Perlane reduces the visibility of the wrinkles and the folds. The primary purpose of hyaluronic acid in Perlane is used for improving the facial contours, improving wrinkles, folds, scars, and other facial skin depressions.

What is the difference between Perlane and Restylane?
Perlane is almost the same as Restylane although Perlane fillers have larger concentrations of hyaluronic acid. Since Perlane has higher concentrations of hyaluronic acid, it is used for larger folds. Restylane is best used for smaller wrinkles or maintenance for previous Perlane injections. Restylane is also cheaper than Perlane fillers because of the differing concentrations of hyaluronic acid.
