For patients who are experiencing deep set wrinkles, facial folds and volume loss, Perlane is a dermal filler that targets all of these signs of aging and restores a more youthful appearance. At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology, our San Diego dermal filler experts are highly trained and qualified at treating even the most severe wrinkles and loss of facial volume using innovative facial filler treatments.
What Is Perlane?
Perlane is part of the Restylane family of dermal fillers and is designed to specifically target volume loss and deep wrinkles. In fact, Restylane and Perlane injectable gels both contain the same hyaluronic acid that is naturally found in our own bodies and helps to restore lost volume. The difference is that Perlane is denser and the particles are larger than those found in Restylane. The larger particles and denser consistency make Perlane an ideal filler to be injected deeper into the skin to address severe facial folds and volume loss. Oftentimes, our San Diego dermal filler experts will use both Perlane and Restylane to comprehensively treat both deep and superficial wrinkles.
Perlane is most commonly used to treat:
- The area between the eyebrows
- The nasolabial folds
- The area around the mouth
- The jowl area
- Under the eyes
Patients who undergo Perlane treatments experience a smooth and youthful appearance that looks completely natural and not overdone.

Below, we have compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions we receive regarding Perlane. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office!
Q: How does Perlane work?
A: Perlane is an injectable gel filler made of hyaluronic acid which is a natural substance found in our bodies. As we age, our bodies lose hyaluronic acid which results in volume loss. Perlane works to replenish lost hyaluronic acid, making it perfect to plump and smooth the face in a natural-looking way.

A: Perlane injections are safe and effective when administered by a qualified injectables expert. Each of the board-certified dermatologists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology has years of training and experience in providing patients with the highest quality care. Patients should ensure they are receiving injectable treatments only from qualified medical professionals.
Q: What is the difference between Perlane and Restylane?
A: Perlane and Restylane both have the same ingredients. The difference is in the consistency and the size of the particles. Unlike Restylane, Perlane has larger particles and has a denser consistency. Perlane is best used deep under the skin to address severe wrinkles and facial folds.

Q: How do I decide between Perlane and Restylane?
