For soft, natural-looking results that last up to one year, Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Oklahoma City offers Perlane injectable dermal filler treatments. Cosmetic surgeons Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin typically use hyaluronic acid-based Perlane injectable to smooth fine to moderate lines and wrinkles around the eyes or one the forehead. In addition, Perlane can be an option for patients who have age-related volume loss in their cheeks and lips for a fuller, more youthful appearance.

"On 4-25-17 I took one of the largest leaps of faith into Dr. Courtney Caplin's hands! I had a consultation for a Tummy tuck a few months back and absolutely fell in love with how professional, caring and concerned she was about my comfort in choosing her for my procedure. Which meant so much to me as well. I decided to pay my deposit and set my date! 1 week before my surgery I got "cold feet and emailed Dr. Caplin my concerns. Right after the office closed she called me from her personal cell phone and discussed all my fears with me for about 30 minutes! I didn't even think doctors still did that! I was so much more confident and set on her being my doctor for tummy tuck and Lipo. When I arrived everyone was so friendly and hyped me up for the changes I desperately dreamed of! From prepping me, to waking me up, the office team was amazing friendly and kind. I'm now 4 days out from my surgery and couldn't be more pleased. Dr. Caplin has kept in touch with me to make sure I've been comfortable and everything has turned out like I imagined. Of course I have a road of recovery ahead but I have the confidence I need to get through it from picking the best doctor I could have for my journey! I highly recommend her for her knowledge in her field and for the love she has for what she does!"- J.M. / Google / Apr 17, 2017
"Dr Nuveen and Staff are absolutely amazing!!! I had a breast lift with augmentation. I did all of my consultation online so when i first met him i was very nervous. Dr Nuveen walked in with a smile and calmed my fears in a matter of seconds. I was very self conscious of my body and he made me feel beautiful in the most respectful manner. I am currently 6 days out and feel great about my results. I have no doubt he is the best surgeon and will gladly drive 4.5 hours again for any future cosmetic procedures. I cannot brag about his staff enough! I emailed them several times pre-op with fears and many questions i had and always had a same day response. I am very excited for my final results! Thank you so very much DR. Nuveen and staff I am so very blessed to been under your care! As a Nurse i have never met such a kind DR who loves what he does and truly cares for his patients the way you do! Don't trust my words??? Well let the future photos speak for themselves!"- A.M. / Google / Apr 10, 2017

What to Expect@headingTag>
During a Perlane treatment session, the face is thoroughly washed, and marks are made on the areas where the injection will occur. Perlane is injected into to the skin with a fine needle. Although this procedure does not cause any pain, there may be some mild discomfort. We generally apply a numbing cream ahead of time to help keep our patients comfortable. The treatment normally takes 15 to 30 minutes with no downtime. The results are immediately evident. Mild redness and swelling may occur, but this usually subsides within the first 24 hours. The patient is advised not to put any pressure on the injected areas and keep the head elevated for the first evening.
The average cost for a full syringe of Perlane averages about $400. Some patients will only require a single syringe of the product, while others may need several. This depends on the number of areas being treated and the severity of the skin condition. Patients should also keep in mind that Perlane is a temporary fix. In order to maintain the desired results, this treatment should be repeated every 6-12 months.

Best For Which Facial Issues?@headingTag>
Any facial irregularities that are commonly caused by aging, personal habits or environmental factors may benefit from a Perlane treatment. This includes moderate to severe wrinkles and lines, depressions, frown or laugh lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet and other obvious facial folds. Perlane injections are most commonly used for the cheeks, chin, lips and under the eyes to improve contours and volume.
Perlane vs. Other Fillers?@headingTag>
Perlane contains a high dose of hyaluronic acid that may not be present with other fillers. This is the reason why it is more effective in treating certain conditions of wrinkling. Other fillers may be better for mild wrinkles or for patients who are showing the beginning stages of fine lines. The doctor will be able to recommend the best filler to match the patient’s skin condition. In terms of pricing, Perlane does cost a bit more than some of the other fillers as the quality and quantity of hyaluronic acid in the product is slightly higher.
Perlane vs BOTOX?@headingTag>
BOTOX is a drug that relaxes the muscles under the skin that causes the skin to contract, resulting in skin wrinkling. Perlane shares the same function by smoothening and improving wrinkles and lines, but does it in a way of plumping the skin as volume is injected into it. The two products may supplement each other in a single treatment.
When To Have Reinjection?@headingTag>
Hyaluronic acid (by way of a filler injection) is naturally absorbed by the body over time. This means that there will gradually be a loss of volume where Perlane was injected. This gradual decrease usually takes place between 6-12 months after the initial injection. Patients who love the results they receive from a Perlane injection often come back to our office for additional treatments.
