Injectable for Lips and Wrinkles in New York
Many patients often wonder what they can do about lines and wrinkles that develop with aging. For some, these lines and wrinkles are simply an artifact of normal aging. But for others, those lines and wrinkles age the face prematurely. You might not feel as old as the wrinkles on your face make you look. For those patients, we offer a dermal filler known as Perlane. Perlane, available in NYC from Dr. Rokhsar, is a particularly flexible dermal filler with a wide array of applications for patients.
Perlane is a versatile and safe injectable cosmetic filler used in a variety of applications, including but not limited to:
- Lip augmentation
- Reducing severity of worry lines, marionette lines, crow’s feet, and smokers lines
- Wrinkle correction
- Diminishing acne scars
- Filling cheek and face depressions
- Softening jowl appearance
- Adding volume to cheeks
- Enhancing the chin
- Correcting facial depressions
- Improving the appearance of deepened nasolabial folds
- Hand rejuvenation
What Happens During Treatment?
Similar to other injectable procedures, patients can expect to sit with a numbing cream on the treatment area for about 20-40 minutes, after which time the injection process takes around 10-20 minutes. Results are instantaneous, and there is absolutely no downtime involved.
Is Perlane safe?
The substance in Perlane is a non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid gel, a natural substance found in the body’s skin and tissues that diminishes with age. Therefore, Perlane is very safe to use, and adverse reactions are extremely rare. Temporary side effects may include redness, swelling, or tenderness, all of which should subside soon after treatment.
How long will Perlane last?
While treatments such as collagen injections typically last three to six months, Perlane naturally supplements the body’s normal supply of hyaluronic acid, generally lasting six months to one year. Because the substance is biodegradable, effects are not permanent and maintenance sessions are recommended.
Get Your Perlane Injection Today
Whether you’re looking to enhance the volume in your lips, smooth out the appearance of your chin, or get rid of a couple of lines and wrinkles, Perlane is a great option. The injections themselves are usually performed quite quickly, and most patients can be in and out in the span of thirty minutes. That’s why procedures such as these are sometimes referred to as “lunch break facelifts.” You can be back to work just and, likely, no one will notice anything amiss. If you’re interested in scheduling a Perlane treatment, contact our office to start the process.
It’s important to remember that Perlane will last three to six months, so it’s not a permanent solution. For some patients, that’s ideal–they want a temporary pick-me-up. For other patients, you will need to schedule regular maintenance appointments to maintain results. That’s something that Dr. Rokhsar will discuss with you during your consultation!
