Our Newport Beach plastic surgery office is proud to offer Perlane to area patients who wish to treat facial lines and wrinkles without having to undergo surgery. Perlane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance found in the body. It is used to soften severe facial lines, folds and wrinkles by adding volume and fullness deep into the skin. Dr. Domanskis may recommend this filler product to treat facial wrinkles around the eyes, chin, lips, and cheeks. Offering a soft, youthful-looking result, Perlane has the ability to last for up to a full year.
"Excellent experience with Dr. Domanskis! I had abdominalplasty and liposuction. He explained the procedures very thoroughly as well as what to expect immediately following my surgery. He was in contact with me by phone as well during the first week post op I felt very safe in his hands. My results are absolutely phenomenal I couldn't be more pleased!"- W.P. / Yelp / Aug 29, 2015
"We are so happy we found Dr. Domanskis. We are always welcomed with such genuine kindness from Rachelle. Dr. Domanskis gives you his honest and professional opinion while still keeping your own vision in mind. I am so happy with my XL Expander implants. My breasts look valumptuous and perky and the placement is just fantastic. Very small incisions and I healed up well. I can't wait to get lip implants next! Thank you so much Dr. Domanskis and Rachelle!"- V.S. / Google / May 08, 2019
"I had such a great time at Dr. D's office everyone was so nice and very accommodating. I will be back very soon."- P.H. / Yelp / Apr 27, 2019
"Dr Domanskis saved me! My promised implant job before meeting him ended up not good and me distressed. Dr Domanskis was very compassionate and clear during my consultations. He said i may need 2 surgeries, and incredibely he did it all in one surgery and repaired 2 very different looking breasts to look the same and fuller! I couldnt be happier. His knowledge and skill level is second to none (I have had more than 1 breast surgery in my time). I HIGHLY recommend him and will always go back to him if needed for other things in the future! Thanks Dr. Dom! :)"- Anonymous / RateMDs / Feb 20, 2019
"I'm a new patient of Dr. Domanskis and met him under emergency circumstances (that a previous monster surgeon had done to me.) I was over a month post-op of breast lift, replacement and reconstruction surgery for the second time in less than a year and was left with LITERALLY hundreds of stitches in my breasts and a huge hole for the second time that was the size of a quarter and my implant was exposed and This was not only a repeat of what happened to me in Feb 2018 of last year but this time I knew better from past experience (that ended up putting me in the hospital for a deadly staph infection in July 2018) That it's best I find a competent Dr. Who is highly recommended. I called my Oncologists and immediately they said Dr. Domanskis is the best! Couldn't agree more! Truly from the time I called Initially which was in the AM on a Monday I was taken care of by Rachelle and she made sure I was in to see the Dr by 2:00 that day. When I met Dr. Domanskis I was already so fearful of Dr.'s and the lack of care if I had been shown previously, I was surprised at the time and effort he put into listening to me and removing all the hundreds of stitches that should have been taken out weeks ago and the amount of concern Dr. D shows me when taking a culture of the wound to make sure I did not have another staph infection like last time. He sat and slowly explained everything that was hoiu on and what my options would be. Come Friday I opted to have the implant extracted in his office and to my surprise, it was not only painless but super fast and I'm currently healing and looking forward to having Dr. Domanskis help reconstruct what the monster surgeon had done to my body. I have so much faith in Rr. Domanskis and love this place! I know hands down that I will be cared for and taken care of here. This Dr. and his team (Rachelle) treated me like family or an existing patient, it's not about money here it's about caring for the patient and they really do!!"- H.W. / Google / Feb 01, 2019
What to Expect
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?
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?
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?
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?
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.
