Used for enhancing the lips and improving the overall shape of the face, wrinkles and deep-set folds all over the face and chin can also be improved.
A Perlane treatment comprises injections of a gel filler to make the face appear fuller and rounder, enhancing the overall appearance.
Perlane injections can be used for a number of different reasons. As well as enhancing the lips and improving the overall shape of the face, wrinkles and deep-set folds all over the face and chin can also be improved. It is a popular treatment for smokers as it can reduce the fine lines which appear around the lips as a result of cigarette consumption. It can also help to smoothen the appearance of acne scars and can correct the overall look of the face following significant weight loss.
Perlane injections are made from hyaluronic acid and are not sourced from animals. The cell particles of this acid used in a Perlane treatment are larger than those in other similar fillers, making it more suitable to treating deeper wrinkles. A topical anaesthetic is applied to the area of the face that is being injected, before the treatment is carried out using an ultrafine needle.
Results will appear instantly and can last up to nine months however, for optimum results, it is recommended that you get regular top up injections. Perlane injections last twice as long as other collagen-based treatments.
It is common to experience slight itching and redness, as also occurs with other dermal filler treatments. These effects should die down within one week.
Perlane injections can cost around £250 per session.
