Perlane is an injectable dermal filler that reduces the appearance of facial folds and wrinkles. It is also used to augment lips and soften the appearance of depressed marks and scars on the face. If you are interested in any of these facial rejuvenation or enhancement benefits, consider getting Perlane in Los Angeles.
What Is Perlane?
Perlane is composed of hyaluronic acid gel from non-animal sources. It is made of a component naturally found in human tissue, so it does not require a skin test. Perlane is mostly used for lip enhancement, eyebrow plumping, and chin, cheeks, and jawline contouring. It is also used to smooth hollowed parts of the face, define the upper lip’s curve, and smooth out scars.
Perlane, like other hyaluronic fillers, supplements the body’s hyaluronic acid levels, which reduce due to aging and exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. It increases the skin’s full appearance and elasticity. It also reduces facial folds and smile lines. Perlane may be injected along with other facial rejuvenation procedures like Botox.
Ideal Candidates for Perlane
Men and women worried about showing signs of aging on their faces are ideal candidates for Perlane. They should be in good health, with realistic expectations about the procedure’s outcome. They must not be allergic to lidocaine, and they must understand that touch-up treatments must be performed to maintain Perlane’s results.
Dermal fillers like Perlane are not suitable for people with certain allergies or bleeding disorders, and they are not ideal for patients with active infections at the target injection site.
Your Perlane Consultation
At the initial consultation, we will review your medical history, check your current prescriptions and vitamins or supplements, and examine your skin and face. We will discuss the available options and what injectable fillers can do for you. If we determine that you are a suitable candidate, we will discuss the treatment and its cost.
DR. RAFFI IS THE BEST
“Dr. Raffi is the best ~ my mom and I have been going to him for years!! I’ve never had a more caring professional doctor. He also knows anatomy like no one else. Dr. Raffi recently did my filler and botox and made me gorgeous for my upcoming wedding. My skin looks like it did when I was 20, and I had no scarring, needle holes or bruising. The swelling was super minimal. And on top of that, his rates are unbelievable. Don’t hesitate, just go, you won’t regret it!!”

The filler will be injected into the target injection sites using a fine needle during the treatment. It is not a painful procedure, but you might get a topical anesthetic if you feel discomfort. You can leave the facility after the injections and resume your normal activities. No downtime or recovery time is necessary.
After the first few injections, you will notice the added volume in your face and skin. The results last about six months. You may need touch-ups six to nine months after the first injection.
It helps to avoid direct sun exposure until the injection sites heal. Apply a cold compress on the areas to reduce swelling and redness. Avoid touching your face for six hours after your Perlane session.
The Cost of Perlane
The cost of Perlane varies per syringe. Since it is a purely cosmetic procedure, insurance companies will not provide coverage. Discuss the total price of Perlane with us during the consultation.
