Question: What is Perlane and what can it improve? How long do the results last?
Answer: Perlane is a hyaluronic acid filler made by the same company that makes Restylane. The only difference between Perlane and Restylane is that Perlane has a larger particle size and therefore has a higher viscosity and is slightly thicker; otherwise, they are identical. Areas where Perlane can be useful are thicker areas of the face such as the area between the corner of the mouth and the chin or in placement of the product deep in the cheek to augment that area. Restylane and Perlane last about the same amount of time, both being about 9 to 12 months. A repeat injection can get you about a 2 year result.
