Perlane is an injectable wrinkle filler made with hyaluronic acid (HA). The clear gel formula adds volume and hydration to treat moderate to severe lines, wrinkles, and folds. The synthetic HA found in Perlane is made to mimic the body's own supply of HA for soft, natural appearance. Dr. Dana Khuthaila, a New York City plastic surgeon with an office overlooking Central Park, often uses Perlane to increase the fullness of her patient's cheeks and mid-face. The results of Perlane can be seen immediately and patients enjoy their new youthful glow for up to 1 year.
"22 Year Old Unhappy with Profile of the Nose - I always felt that my profile was missing something but I didn't know what I wanted to correct. I realized after taking countless profile selfies that the tip of my nose was lacking perky-ness (If that any makes sense). I've thought about having a rhinoplasty to correct it but I didn't want to break my nose in the process being that all I wanted was structure to the tip. Dr.Khuthaila recommended we try a non surgical temporary treatment and we proceed from there. I was amazed with how quickly and instantly the results were! My nose has the perfect uplift I was looking for and she saved me from going under the knife when it truly was not necessary. The result is exactly what I wanted and I cannot thank her enough for all her help and support. <3 "- S. / RealSelf / Apr 06, 2017

"Loved my doc - day of surgery - She is just amazing. Super bedside manner , friendly, realistic about results and tells you how it’s going to be and level sets expectations. My kind of doc."- A. / RealSelf / Oct 06, 2017
"I met Dr. Khuthaila through a mutual friend. I have been thinking for a couple years how much I would love to have a breast reduction. Where do you start? Something like this you want to be able to trust in your doctor. Also to know that your doctor is listening to your wants. I found Dr. Kuthaila to be a very dedicated and truly passionate about what she does for people. Plus she listens! I am from Connecticut and was willing to travel into New York so that I could have her do my surgery. I was a bit apprehensive about this , but her location is so easy to get to and out of New York. I started the process and was worried about my insurance coverage from someone out of network. The office people where so helpful and I got my OK. Then we set up date and time and they even booked my hotel for me! Really there was nothing to worry about. Now to the results. I am so happy with the way I look and feel!! No more neck and back pain! Can I say I haven't been this perky since I was 18 years old!! There is a lot to say about being really secure in your choice of surgeons. I would highly recommend Dr. Khuthaila."- L.M. / Yelp / Sep 29, 2017
What to Expect
During your appointment, the areas of the injection sites will be marked and thoroughly cleaned prior to the treatment. The Perlane filler will be injected deep into the skin where added volume and fullness is desired. While results can be seen immediately, some side effects may not appear for a day or two after the injections. The most common side effects include pain, redness, swelling, itching, discoloration and tenderness at the injection site.
Patients with wrinkles, worry lines, smile lines, crow’s feet, cheek depressions and smoker’s lines use Perlane fillers. Patients also use Perlane injections for lip enhancement, chin augmentation, redefining lip borders and softening acne scars. Less common uses for Perlane injections include filling hollows under the eyes, creating a temporary brow lift and softening the appearance of jowls.
Restylane or Perlane?
Made by the same manufacturer, Perlane and Restylane are primarily the same products. However, Perlane contains a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid intended for larger folds and wrinkles. Restylane should be used for smaller wrinkles, or to maintain the results of Perlane treatments. Perlane is also the more expensive filler because of the higher amounts of hyaluronic acid.
Different from BOTOX?
Unlike BOTOX, Perlane does not numb facial muscles. Perlane only reduces the visibility of wrinkles and folds by adding volume and fullness under the skin. Perlane can be used in conjunction with BOTOX to provide maximum results.
How Long Will Results Last?
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body that depletes with age. The hyaluronic acid in Perlane injections is biodegradable, which means results are not permanent. On average, results last six months to a year with proper maintenance. Patients can use other injectable fillers, such as Restylane, in between Perlane treatments to maintain soft, youthful results.
