Perfectha is the latest-generation of cross-linked Hyaluronic acid with E-brid technology. It works to fill out wrinkles, hydrate the skin, augment tissues and contour the lips. The procedure begins with the injection of Perfectha into the marked injection sites on the skin. Once in the skin, it creates volume which lifts the lips, wrinkles or folds. Perfectha contains hyaluronic acid in the form of a crystal-clear gel. It is not extracted from animals so there is very little risk of allergic reaction. Therefore, it is perfectly safe to use instantly without pre-testing.

Ideal candidates are healthy individuals, above the age of 18, that are exhibiting early signs of aging such as wrinkles, laugh lines, crow’s feet and loss of volume. Patients who are under the age of 18, pregnant or breastfeeding, hypersensitive to hyaluronic acid or its derivatives are not good candidates. Patients with aging skin will benefit the most from this procedure.

The typical cost for this procedure ranges from $300-$600. The final cost depends on the amount of Perfectha injected, if there are multiple treatments performed, any anesthesia fees and the geographic location of the procedure.

The procedure restore a smooth and youthful look to the patient. It is a non-invasive procedure so little or no downtime is required. There could be some slight discomfort or pain at the site of the injection as well as swelling, redness and bruising in the treated area. These effects are temporary and will resolve within a week. Patients should refrain from rubbing the treated areas until the side effects are resolved. The results of the procedure are seen immediately after the treatment. The results last between three and twelve months.
