If you are struggling with the appearance of nasolabial folds or a lack of volume in the cheeks, you may want to consider Perlane injections at Lewis Dermatology & Associates. We are proud to offer this and other dermal filler and injectable treatments to patients living in The Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and the surrounding areas in New York.
What is Perlane?
Perlane, also called Restylane® Lyft, is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler treatment that is used to restore volume to the skin, smoothing out lines and wrinkles in the process. When injected into the skin, the Perlane formula will add natural-looking volume that instantly produces a more youthful appearance. With more volume in the skin, lines and wrinkles will naturally diminish. Perlane can be used for numerous treatment areas, including:
- The cheeks
- Smile lines or laugh lines
- Nasolabial folds (around the nose and mouth)
- The hands
How Much does Perlane Cost?
The price of your Perlane treatment will vary depending on the size of your treatment area and the amount of product needed to help you achieve your desired results. To get a better idea of how much your Perlane treatment will cost, come in for a private consultation with Dr. Amy B. Lewis and her staff.

- Restores volume for a more youthful appearance

What Can I Expect During my Perlane Treatment?
Before your Perlane treatment begins, Dr. Lewis may apply a topical anesthetic to your desired treatment area. This is to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible throughout the entirety of your treatment. Once numb, Dr. Lewis will make a series of strategically placed Perlane injections into these areas. The entire treatment process typically takes under an hour to complete, after which patients are able to return to their normal daily activities including work.
What Results Can I Expect from Perlane?
Following your Perlane treatment, there may be some minor bruising, swelling or soreness in the treatment area, but these typically resolve within a few days and will not impact your ability to resume your usual activities. The results from Perlane will be visible immediately upon injection, so you will notice enhanced skin volume and smoothness before even leaving your appointment. These results will become more noticeable as any side effects fade in the days following treatment. The results from your Perlane treatment will last approximately six months, although this can vary slightly depending on the treatment area. Dr. Lewis and her team may recommend that patients come in for follow-up treatments to maintain their results.
Am I a Good Candidate for Perlane?

She’ll be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, evaluate your goals, and develop a fully personalized treatment plan to help you reach all of your aesthetic and skin health goals.
