Perlane is a dermal filler injectable designed to add volume and proportions in the face or hands. By working wonders on the soft tissue in both areas, a Perlane injection is able to correct wrinkles, repair deep folds, and eliminate smile lines. Furthermore, the treatment is ideal for contouring the area surrounding the cheeks. Due to its non-surgical approach, a Perlane filler is an incredibly attractive choice for many patients hoping to correct unsightly flaws in a minimally invasive way.
There is no particular age restriction for the Perlane treatment, and there is no specific trait that defines a “good” candidate. Fundamentally, good candidates are patients who have lost some modest volume and proportions in their face or hands.
However, while there are no specific traits that dictate candidacy, there are certain conditions that can make the process more seamless.

At SpaMedica, a Perlane treatment is performed under local anesthesia. During the procedure, Dr. Mulholland injects the Perlane into a site on the patient’s face or hands, ensuring the fluid restores volume and balance to the areas. The injection is performed with a small micro-cannula, which minimizes the risk of complications. Interestingly, the micro-cannula injection technique has been pioneered by Dr. Mulholland at SpaMedica in Toronto. In fact, the doctor has taught his innovative technique to physicians across the world.
Prior to your treatment, Dr. Mulholland or another member of the injection team will review your medications and medical history. Based on the scope of the work being done, SpaMedica doctors may recommend that you stop taking certain medications before the treatment. It is also recommended that patients keep the injection area clean and well-moisturized before their visit to the clinic, as this will minimize any potential damage to pores during treatment.
