Perlane is one of the leading dermal filler injectable treatments to address facial signs of aging and restore a more youthful facial appearance. This medspa procedure should only be performed by a trained and experienced provider in order to achieve safe and desirable outcomes.
During the initial consultation, the provider will explain various aspects of Perlane treatment, including the estimated longevity of results. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie offers Perlane injections through Motykie medical spa to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
Sustainability of Results
The key ingredient in Perlane is non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA). This ingredient is provided in gel form, and the gel’s consistency is designed for it to sustain in the deeper layers of the skin for a reasonable amount of time. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance occurring in the human body, but it gets depleted with age.
Perlane medspa injectable procedure will replace hylauronic acid in the form of Perlane gel. This substance is biodegradable, which means that its effects are not permanent. Results of a single filler injection of Perlane will usually last for about six months to a year. However, individual results will vary depending on several factors.
Traditional collagen injections to restore facial volume and reduce aging effects will typically last for about three months to six months. Against that, Perlane injections can last for about six months to one year. Results are generally more sustainable in such areas of the face where the skin movement is lesser.
For instance, the longevity of Perlane in the cheek area is around 12 months or even more in some cases. However, when Perlane is used to reduce marionette lines and nasolabial folds, the longevity is only about six to nine months. This happens because these lines and folds are dynamic and experience a lot of movement as compared to the cheeks.
Dermal filler injections such as Perlane should only be administered by fully trained and experienced treatment providers. How long lasting the results of this treatment may be will be determined to an extent by the skill and expertise of the provider. The kind of injection technique that the provider uses will impact the duration of outcome.
The molecular structure of Perlane gel is similar to the structure of Juvederm and Restylane. The gel is relatively thicker, which makes it suitable for mid-face augmentation and correction of deeper wrinkles. At the same time, the results are more sustainable due to the thicker gel structure.
Appearance of Results
The golden aspect germane to Perlane dermal filler is that the results can be noticed almost immediately. The consistent gel will be injected directly into the depleted areas, and will work to restore volume quickly. The thinning skin will be filled up with gel volume almost immediately.
However, in the first two to three days, the results may not be visible clearly due to swelling and redness. As the swelling resolves, the results will appear more clearly. Minor side effects will dissipate on their own within a day or two.
