Perlane is an incredible injectable filler that Dr. Torgerson uses to help lift and replace lost volume, helping to contour aging facial areas and offset wrinkles. Perlane is created from Health Canada-approved hyaluronic acid (HA), a safe and effective natural product. Because of the larger size of the HA particles, Perlane is ideal for correcting wrinkles, deep folds, and smile lines and contouring cheek areas. Dr. Cory Torgerson also uses Perlane for crown lifts, which help open up the eye area by lifting the brow-line non-surgically.
Another option is The Perlane Uplift – a superior treatment plan offered by Dr. Torgerson for the whole face. Most patients require only one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing or volume enhancement. This product typically lasts 6 to 9 months and can be quickly and effectively injected in less than an hour. Perlane also contains lidocaine, which has been shown to reduce pain during injection up to 95% (Medicis Clinical Studies). The Perlane and Restylane family of products are owned by Medicis, a division of Valeant Canada.
Dr. Cory Torgerson is simply the best choice to inject Perlane at our Cosmetic Surgery clinic. Not only does he have extensive injecting skill and experience, but he also has a true aesthetic eye to see exactly what areas of the face should be targeted with the Perlane Dermal Filler. Clients truly love Dr. Torgerson’s personal and boutique style, which guarantees the best injectable filler results possible.

Yes. Most patients feel the initial needle – similar to when you receive a routine flu shot at the doctor’s office. However, Perlane dermal filler now contains lidocaine (a solution that helps numb the area). Almost immediately Lidocaine begins to freeze the region so that the rest of the procedure is easy and comfortable, resulting in a simple and quick treatment for the client. For greater comfort, a topical numbing agent can be requested and applied, but most clients find they do not need additional pain relief because Lidocaine is sufficient.
Not at all! The Perlane dermal filler can be injected easily and quickly. The average appointment from start to finish is approximately half an hour, contingent upon the amount of Perlane used as well as the number of areas being injected. Patients also love the fact that their results are immediately visible and gratifying!
The recovery following a Perlane injection generally depends on where the product was injected and how much Perlane was used. Clients usually find they are able to return to their normal, daily activities and may experience the most swelling for up to 1 to 2 days following. Slight swelling may remain but is typically gone within 7 to 10 days. Small bruises may also occur around the injection site, but they are easily covered with makeup or are barely noticeable. One way to reduce the possibility of bruising is to avoid any blood-thinning products such as aspirin, ginseng, and vitamin E for 1 to 2 weeks before your Perlane treatment.
Perlane treatment results generally last between 6 months and 1 year, depending on the regions Perlane was injected into. Please visit the Dermal Fillers information page to learn about the variety of injectable fillers available and which ones are the longest lasting. We do recommend that patients return for their next injection session before the Perlane completely disappears in order to maintain the overall contour, shape, and look.
A syringe of Perlane can also be called a cc or a vial. To learn the most up-to-date cost of a syringe of Perlane, please contact our office by phone or by email, and we will get back to you quickly within 1 working day. Each dermal filler procedure is charged based on the number of Perlane vials used. Dr. Torgerson is known as a top injector with a high volume of clientele.

No, Perlane treatments need to be maintained every 6 months to a year, depending on the area injected. Perlane is formed with a hyaluronic acid base, which means it will be metabolized by your body in the months following the injection. Hyaluronic acid is already produced within our own bodies and is a very safe and natural product with basically no allergic complications. For patients who have had an unsuccessful injection somewhere else and need it to be corrected, Dr. Torgerson can use hyaluronidaise to easily break down the Perlane. Within an hour, hyaluronidaise can quickly and easily correct any dermal filler produced with hyaluronic acid.
