Results with Perlane
Perlane is one of the newer fillers in our armamentarium. It is made of the exact same material and by the same company as Restylane, but it is a denser mix of particles. Its use is for volume enhancement, under the eyes, in deep nasolabial folds, marionette lines, cheeks, jaw line and lips. Perlane is robust- it gives us much more volume for the same amount of material than either Restylane or Juvederm. Most of the time, we use Perlane in combination with Restylane or Juvederm, to get the right mix for volume and lines. As our experience with fillers has evolved, we are finding that full volume correction at your initial visit is ideal. This means that we will use the most material at your first visit, followed by periodic touch-ups every 6-12 months as maintenance. Instead of using a small amount of filler and needing to refill everything after it reabsorbs, we can “top it off” periodically which reduces your cost, keeps your results in best condition all year long and decreases the incidence of bruising with your maintenance treatments. One of our favorite procedures, Shannon, Emily and I truly enjoy and work hard at giving you the most natural looking filler enhancements. This is both exacting science and artistic creation and we are proud of our skills.
