Perlane® in San Francisco, CA
Feeling self-conscious about frown lines, smile lines, deep wrinkles, or facial folds? Perlane® can help. Administered right here in San Francisco and the Bay Area by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Aycock, Perlane® can give you the softer, youthful-looking skin you love!
What Is Perlane®?
Perlane® is a new type of synthetic dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps give skin its softness and elasticity. Perlane® is an injection that helps treat deep wrinkles and facial folds in the skin. Like Restylane®, Perlane® is used for the treatment of wrinkles; however, its compounds are designed to treat deeper creases and folds in the skin.
Benefits of Perlane®*
Our patients who have Perlane® injections tell us they enjoy numerous benefits as a result, including the following:
- Softer, younger-looking skin.
- Diminished appearance of wrinkles, folds, and creases.
How is Perlane® Administered?
Perlane® is a simple injectable dermal filler that can be used together with other augmentation procedures, including lip augmentation or implants, brow lifts, eyelid lifts, or Botox® to help you achieve improved facial structure and contour while lessening the appearance of wrinkles.
Dr. Aycock is a trainer for Botox® Cosmetic and dermal filler injections.
Preparing for Perlane®
You may be asked to have lab testing or a medical evaluation done to rule out any external issues that may interfere with your treatment. You may also be asked to start, discontinue, or adjust your current medication schedule. You’ll recover more quickly if you stop smoking, and you should avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory medicines, or any herbal supplements as these can increase bleeding.
Perlane® recovery is mild and you may resume normal activities in a very short period of time. Some patients may experience discomfort at the injection site, for which a local anesthetic or ice may be applied. Perlane® treatment lasts approximately 8-10 months.
How Much Does Perlane® Cost?
The cost of Perlane® in San Francisco varies depending on the area being treated. Dr. Aycock provides convenient financing options, including CareCredit®; to help cover the cost of your treatment, and you may be approved in as little as an hour. Visa®, MasterCard®, and Discover® are also accepted, and you’ll enjoy a FREE CONSULTATION on your first visit to our office.
