Similar to JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, Radiesse®, and BELOTERO BALANCE®, Perlane® is a hyaluronic acid-based cosmetic filler designed to treat fine lines and wrinkles, as well as age-related volume loss. If you want to add volume in the cheeks, create a fuller, more sensual contour in the lips, or minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, Perlane® may be the treatment for you. Our West Palm Beach plastic surgeon, Dr. Mark Pinsky, often uses this dermal filler to boost volume, improve skin elasticity, and smooth out wrinkles. Perlane® is somewhat thicker than other formulas and can be effective for treating deeper wrinkles and lines, and especially beneficial for treatment of nasolabial folds (creases between the nose and mouth) in men.

Why You Should Choose Dr. Pinsky for Perlane® Treatment
Perlane® injections can be administered by a variety of people, from estheticians to plastic surgeons and other medical professionals. However, the expertise and training of Dr. Pinsky and his certified physician assistants’ allow them to provide some of the best possible results with Perlane® injections. Their extensive knowledge of the facial structure helps them to make comprehensive evaluations and create results that look not only beautiful, but also natural.
How Does It Work?
Since Perlane® is composed of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the human body, allergy testing is typically unnecessary. A topical anesthetic can be applied to treatment sites to reduce discomfort during treatment. The solution will then be injected directly into targeted areas on the face with a small needle, working to fill in areas of the skin to smooth out wrinkles and enhance volume. Patients should almost immediately experience a more rejuvenated, youthful appearance. The entire treatment can typically be completed within 30 minutes. Benefits generally last for up to six months, and follow-up treatments can enhance longevity of the results.
What About After My Injection?
Most patients can resume normal activities immediately after treatment; however, minimal redness, swelling, and bruising may occur around the treatment sites after the procedure. Any side effects generally resolve quickly.
