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
"I feel so bad, thought I had left a review. Couple things first, my review has value, the reason is that I'm rarely satisfied, and have had many things done over the years, what I received was unexpected and why I came back for more. I have psoriasis, for years I put Clobetesol on my face, which thinned it out and gave me a lovely TURKEY NECK, yikes, nothing I could do, but I had a friend who had a neck lift and it was awful, that is he had pain, weird scary looking wraps, so while things like that rarely bothered me I just wanted him to pull it up or put in fillers to tighten it. I finally ceded to neck lift, and what I got I did not expect. Not only did I get a PERFECT NECK, but I got back my best feature, my chin, I have a long, manly chin, that had been obscured with fat and loose skin, now you have to understand I went from a single guy with no prospects to back to how I was in my 20's, what is that worth?? Hock the house, seriously, to get young, hot girls again? And then the love of my life who I'm still with, all because, yes appearance, it matters people don't let anyone lie to you, I basically got to go back in time. Second, I had got used to "man boobs", and fat over my stomach, I'm athletic so figured I could handle it, but after seeing a side picture of myself, I went for it. At first he thought I'd need a tummy tuck, we avoided that, and I got what every man should get, ETCHING, first he removed all of the fat on my chest, then ETCHED the stomach, if you've never heard of it neither had I, he makes a indentation around your abs so you have them whether you work out or not!! Result? I was in seeing my dermatologist, female with her assistant, she asked me to remove my shirt, something I used to dread, I took it off and she looked at her assistant and said "What do you do", "What do you mean", "You have a great body", this all without working out, though I'm motivated and doing that now. What can I say? I have the mind and experience of an older guy, with the face and body of a much younger guy, say what you will, judge all you like, BUT I LOVE LOOKING GREAT AGAIN, getting a compliment "You have a great body", you can't imagine how often I hear "Handsome", oh that word I hadn't heard for such a long, wasted period. I had stated I was important to listen to because of experience, I've had IPL's, fillers because of my thin skin, lasers, must be over 25 doctors I've seen over the years and what do they have in common? They talk FAST AND OVER YOU, they charge to for a consult!! What nerve. Dr. Domaskis though a amazing doctor ACTUALLY LISTENS AND RESPONDS TO WHAT YOU SAY, it's why I'll NEVER pay for a consult, what arrogance what if we don't like the doctor? I want to end with this, I was staying at a hotel when I had my procedure, that is neck lift, though his directions were right on, I made a mistake and was uncomfortable, well I can be quite a nuisance, that is complainer, so I got angry, what did Doc do? HE CAME TO MY HOTEL AND FIXED IT HIMSELF!!! Tell me what plastic surgeon have you heard of doing that? Trust me the guy cares, I screwed up, he gets in his car, drives to my hotel and fixes MY MISTAKE. Thanks Doc!!!"- M.H. / Yelp / Jul 21, 2018
"Dr. Domanskis is top notch. He is a perfectionist, cares about what his patient thinks and listens to what your concerns are. He is very honest and when he does not think you need a specific procedure he will tell you. I have had 3 surgeries with Dr. D and every one has been amazing. The first surgery was a breast augmentation going from a B to a large C. He asked me to show him several pictures of what I would like and he nailed it to a T. That was over 10 years ago and they are still amazing and not in need of replacement whatsoever. My breasts are just as perfect as when he did my procedure.Three years ago I went to another person - BIG MISTAKE . Dr. Domankis is a plastic and RECONSTRUCTIVE surgeon. He took the ridiculously botched up job this Dr. did and fixed my face. He did scar revision which is impeccable. The outcome of his work is amazing. He's your man! Dr. D's nurse Rachelle is wonderful as well."- K.C. / Yelp / Feb 22, 2018

"I love Dr Domanskis. He saved my life when other plastic surgeons said live with it you don't qualify for reconstruction. He made me feel comfortable and was more knowledgable tan the others I saw. He and he office worked with me since I live five hour away in another state. My results so far have been amazing."- Anonymous / Vitals / Oct 18, 2017
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.
