Davis, a dual-board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, recommends Perlane® to his patients who want a non-surgical solution to more significant cosmetic concerns associated with aging. If you live in Tampa, St. Petersburg, and surrounding towns in Florida, find out more about Perlane® by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Davis.

What is Perlane®?

Perlane® is a dermal filler that can be injected to smooth problem wrinkles near the mouth, lips, and cheeks. The formulation works in a similar manner to Restylane® to fill in wrinkles to promote smoother, more natural-looking skin. One way it differs from Restylane® is that it works on wrinkles that are not affected by milder types of treatments. It has the property of attracting water molecules, so it also serves to add volume and plumpness to treated areas.

Perlane® Benefits

The benefits of Perlane® include:

  • Smoothing and filling problems wrinkles around the mouth and nose
  • Providing extra volume and plumpness to the lips
  • Treating deeper nasolabial folds and deep wrinkles

How is Perlane® Administered?

Perlane® is injected via a very fine needle that goes deep into the skin to deliver treatment to wrinkles and folds around the mouth and nose. The procedure only lasts a few minutes, which is why many patients opt to have their Perlane® treatment performed over their lunch hour.

Perlane® Preparation

Perlane® contains hyaluronic acid — a substance produced naturally by the body, which declines as we age. Hyaluronic acid has the special property of attracting and absorbing many times its own weight in water, which has a plumping effect on the skin. Since Perlane® uses this natural skin enhancer, no allergy testing is needed; the body does not consider hyaluronic acid to be a foreign substance.

Perlane® Recovery

A Perlane® treatment only takes a few minutes to complete. First, a numbing agent is applied to the injection site to minimize discomfort. You might experience minor swelling and redness at the injection site after treatment. A cold compress or over-the-counter pain reliever can help ease any discomfort or swelling after your treatment. The Perlane® treatment process only lasts 30 to 45 minutes, which is why many patients opt to have it performed over their lunch hour. No downtime should be expected.

How Much Does A Perlane® Treatment Cost?

Insurance companies do not consider Perlane® treatment to be essential, so they do not cover the cost. However, Davis Facial Plastic Surgery can offer financing help through CareCredit®. If you should have any questions regarding the cost of your treatment, please call today. You can pay by major credit card, personal check, or cash.
