Perlane Injections

Reston Virginia Board Certified Cosmetic Laser Surgery and Wellness Center

Perlane (also known as restylane lyft) is a crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel based on a natural substance, called hyaluronic acid. Achieving the look you desire is as easy as it is quick. No previous skin test is needed.

During treatment, Perlane is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. When injected into the skin, the injectable produces volume that smoothes the wrinkle or fold, shapes the facial contours in a natural way. The result is immediate. The method of injecting Perlane is fast and safe.

How long does it last?

This cosmetic injectable delivers long-lasting result for at least six months.

Does treatment hurt?

Dr. Ali uses an ultra fine needle to precisely inject small amounts of Perlane in the areas needed. As with all injections, some patients may experience discomfort. Pain is subjective, and Dr. Ali may use a topical anesthetic to alleviate any discomfort you may have. 

What should I do prior to treatment?

This requires no pretesting, but you should take a few precautions before being treated. Avoid using aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, St. John's Wort, or high doses of Vitamin E supplements prior to treatment, because these may increase bruising or bleeding at the injection site. Also, if you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, discuss this with Dr. Ali, she can prescribe medication to minimize a recurrence. 

What should I expect after treatment?

Immediately after the treatment, you can expect a slight redness, swelling, tenderness and an itching sensation in the treated area. This is a normal result of the injection.The discomfort is temporary and generally disappears in a few days. When it comes to lip augmentation, the swelling may last longer. Some patients experience swelling for about a week.
