An additional dermal filler offered by Dr. Anitha Reddy, Medical Director of M.D. Aesthetics and Wellness Institute in Tampa Florida, is Perlane®. Perlane® is similar to Restylane® in that it is a type of hyaluronic acid filler. The molecule is larger than the Restylane® molecule and more suitable for injection into deeper facial wrinkles and facial depressions. It was FDA approved in May of 2007.
Perlane® is made from non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid gel. This means Perlane® contains no animal products. Since hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the skin and other tissue, there is no need to have a skin test before Perlane® is used. The results of a Perlane® filler treatment lasts from six months to a year. This is much longer than the typical results of collagen injections, which may last only 3 months. Perlane®is commonly used for wrinkle correction, diminishing worry lines, smile line, crow’s feet, marionette lines and smoker’s lines. Perlane® also has other uses.
Dr. Reddy finds Perlane® can also be used for lip enhancement and reducing the severity of nasolabial folds. Perlane® can be used for chin augmentation, filling cheek depressions, redefining lip border and softening acne scars. These are just a few of the many and varied uses for Perlane®.
