As you age, hyaluronic acid, which helps keep your skin and tissues hydrated and voluminous, becomes depleted, making your face vulnerable to stubborn lines and wrinkles. Perlane®, an injectable dermal filler, works to replace the hyaluronic acid that time has drained away.
The medical professionals at New Image Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center in Orlando work regularly with Central Florida patients who are struggling with moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. We offer Perlane® as one of our anti-aging treatment options because it is a safe and natural way to eliminate deep lines in the face. Dr. Jan V. Karlin and his staff welcome individuals from the greater Orlando area to schedule a Perlane® consultation today. Our doors are open to men and women from Altamonte Springs, Kissimmee, Apopka, Sanford, Winter Park and beyond.
Is Perlane® Right for Me?
The main reason most patients are interested in Perlane is the perfect injectable to restore a more youthful appearance by filling facial wrinkles while also adding moisture to the skin. The treatments can eliminate stubborn lines and crinkles that make you look sad, unhappy and tired â€“ even when you are not. Some typical target sites for our Orlando Perlane® patients include:
- Smoker’s lines (perioral lines) vertical lines on the mouth
- Marionette lines (oral commissures) lines at the side of the mouth
- Deep smile lines (nasolabial furrows)
- Facial contouring
How Does Perlane® Work?
Because hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body, there is no need for any skin testing before your Perlane® treatment with us in Orlando. Perlane® is sometimes called a lunchtime procedure because it can be performed in less than an hour. The treatment starts with an ultra-fine needle that injects the dermal filler just beneath the surface of the skin. Because of its hydrophilic, or water-loving, nature, Perlane® attracts and binds water molecules to help maintain volume. Its three-dimensional structure allows it to bind water many times its own weight. This provides continual filling as the gel begins to degrade harmlessly into the body.
Perlane® is similar to Restylane® in that they are both composed of the same hyaluronic acid. Perlane®, however, consists of larger gel particles and a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid. It is intended for deeper injection to add volume for structural support, as well as to fill in deep lines and wrinkles.
What is the Recovery Process for Perlane®?
You should experience minimal discomfort after your Perlane® treatment in Orlando, and normal activities can usually be resumed immediately. The injection sites may be a little swollen, bruising and tenderness may occur, but this should subside after two or three days.
Perlane® is biodegradable, so results aren’t permanent. However, the effects are relatively long lasting, remaining visible for up to six months or longer.
What are Orlando Perlane® Costs?
The cost for any dermal filler is dependent on how much of the solution is needed to attain satisfactory results. Therefore, Orlando Perlane® prices will typically differ from patient to patient. You can learn additional details by speaking with the professionals at New Image Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center.
