Our Las Vegas plastic surgery practice is proud to offer Perlane to area patients who wish to treat facial lines and wrinkles without having to undergo surgery. Perlane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance found in the body. It is used to soften severe facial lines, folds and wrinkles by adding volume and fullness deep into the skin. We may recommend this filler product to treat facial wrinkles around the eyes, chin, lips, and cheeks. Offering a soft, youthful-looking result, Perlane has the ability to last for up to a full year. During the consultation with Las Vegas cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Khorsandi, he will provide information about Perlane, as well as other fillers that may be suitable options.
"I've seen Melanie for scar and stretch mark treatments here. She is AMAZING!!! Melanie is very gentle and keeps you well informed of what will occur during the procedure and how to care for the areas after treatment. She didn't hesitate to have me contact her if I had any questions or issues at all. I feel super comfortable coming here for my treatments. Melanie is honest and has a fantastic professional demeanor. I would like to add that the other members of Dr. Khorsandi's staff are also very nice and welcoming."- S.E. / Yelp / Jun 09, 2017
"You can't put a price tag on being truly comfortable in your own skin - Las Vegas, NV - After 4 years of debating and research I finally decided to go through with rhinoplasty. I must say it turned out better than I had ever imagined. My whole life I've hated my nose, I was scared to really smile and I'd even try not to laugh because I was so self conscious about my nose. Of course all of your friends and family will tell you the signature "oh your fine the way you are" but like..."- E. / RealSelf / Jun 09, 2017
"So I am updating my review and I'm still giving everyone a 5+ star rating! I did the fraxel on Monday and it's Sunday evening and yes I am still pink but the results are amazing! My hyper pigmentation and most of my texture is gone! I also received a chin implant with Dr K on Wednesday so I'm still swollen with that but I know I'm going to love the result of that as well! Again I need to give a shout put to Mel for being a beast with a laser! She is my go to when it comes to my aesthetic needs and also Dr K for giving me confidence with my profile. I just wish the swelling would go down faster! lol damn lack of patience. Well I now have a laundry list of other things I would like to tweak. And I know VIP is the place I can trust and know I'll get the best work done!"- V.B. / Yelp / Feb 18, 2017

What to Expect@headingTag>
During a Perlane treatment session, the face is thoroughly washed, and marks are made on the areas where the injection will occur. Perlane is injected into to the skin with a fine needle. Although this procedure does not cause any pain, there may be some mild discomfort. We generally apply a numbing cream ahead of time to help keep our patients comfortable. The treatment normally takes 15 to 30 minutes with no downtime. The results are immediately evident. Mild redness and swelling may occur, but this usually subsides within the first 24 hours. The patient is advised not to put any pressure on the injected areas and keep the head elevated for the first evening.
The average cost for a full syringe of Perlane averages about $400. Some patients will only require a single syringe of the product, while others may need several. This depends on the number of areas being treated and the severity of the skin condition. Patients should also keep in mind that Perlane is a temporary fix. In order to maintain the desired results, this treatment should be repeated every 6-12 months.

Best For Which Facial Issues?@headingTag>
Any facial irregularities that are commonly caused by aging, personal habits or environmental factors may benefit from a Perlane treatment. This includes moderate to severe wrinkles and lines, depressions, frown or laugh lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet and other obvious facial folds. Perlane injections are most commonly used for the cheeks, chin, lips and under the eyes to improve contours and volume.
Perlane vs. Other Fillers?@headingTag>
Perlane contains a high dose of hyaluronic acid that may not be present with other fillers. This is the reason why it is more effective in treating certain conditions of wrinkling. Other fillers may be better for mild wrinkles or for patients who are showing the beginning stages of fine lines. The doctor will be able to recommend the best filler to match the patient’s skin condition. In terms of pricing, Perlane does cost a bit more than some of the other fillers as the quality and quantity of hyaluronic acid in the product is slightly higher.
Perlane vs. BOTOX?@headingTag>
BOTOX is a drug that relaxes the muscles under the skin that causes the skin to contract, resulting in skin wrinkling. Perlane shares the same function by smoothening and improving wrinkles and lines, but does it in a way of plumping the skin as volume is injected into it. The two products may supplement each other in a single treatment.
When To Have Reinjection?@headingTag>
Hyaluronic acid (by way of a filler injection) is naturally absorbed by the body over time. This means that there will gradually be a loss of volume where Perlane was injected. This gradual decrease usually takes place between 6-12 months after the initial injection. Patients who love the results they receive from a Perlane injection often come back to our office for additional treatments.
