Deep, noticeable facial wrinkles, especially those around the face and nose (in the region commonly known as the “nasolabial fold”), can sap your self-confidence and leave you self-conscious about your appearance. You don’t have to just put up with them, however.
Triple board-certified Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann can eliminate these prominent wrinkles and give you a younger, fresher, revitalized facial appearance. We offer a number of injectable treatments, one of which is Perlane.
Perlane is a non-surgical skin care treatment and dermal filler that can plump the skin and fill the lines, folds and wrinkles that you wish to eliminate.
If you’re a resident Houston, Texas or anywhere else in the country and you want to learn more about Perlane from our triple board-certified plastic surgeon, please call The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today at (713) 790-1771 for a consultation.
What is Perlane?
Perlane is FDA-approved for the treatment of wrinkles and lines in the nasolabial fold. The question then becomes: why choose Perlane instead of other injectable treatments?
As mentioned above, Perlane is a dermal filler. It’s made from a synthesized form of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance all people have in their bodies. Hyaluronic acids moisturize skin and give it a rich, full appearance.
Perlane works by plumping the skin in the treatment area, which smoothes away lines and wrinkles. It also attracts and binds water molecules, keeping the treatment area youthful and vibrant.
Perlane is closely related to Restylane, another dermal filler we offer. There are two significant differences between the two injectables. First, Perlane’s particles are much bigger than Restylane’s. Second, Perlane is injected at a much deeper level of the skin.
This makes it more appropriate for patients who are dealing with significant, severe wrinkles and lines in the nasolabial fold.
But Is It Safe?
Our Houston plastic surgeon never offers any procedures that pose a health danger to his patients. All cosmetic procedures carry the risk of side effects, but Perlane has been approved by the FDA because it is both safe and effective.
Those side effects tend to be moderate and short-lived. They include:
- Tenderness in the treatment area
It’s important that you be completely up-front and open about past allergies, as Perlane should not be used by patients who are allergic to lidocaine.
Dr. Eisemann will make sure you are a good candidate for Perlane. He’ll also help you choose between Perlane, other dermal fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic.
