Whether caused by acne, injuries, burns, or other conditions, scars can be a source of embarrassment and frustration. Fortunately, for Los Angeles residents, Skin by Lovely in Santa Monica offers Perlane, a safe and effective treatment for softening the appearance of scars and improving facial depressions.

How it Works

Perlane is a dermal filler commonly used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. This FDA-approved treatment is manufactured using the Streptococcus strain of bacteria combined with hyaluronic acid. The gel-like particles attract and bind to water to add smoothness and volume to the skin’s surface. The hyaluronic acid used in this treatment actually augments the body’s natural supply, which lessens with age.

The Procedure

Treatment requires only a topical numbing cream prior to receiving the injections. Though uncommon, the worst side effect might be minor bruising or swelling at the injection site. This unique treatment works by raising crater-like marks on the skin, adding fullness that actually smoothes out the wrinkles and uneven texture caused by scars.


The injected material in Perlane is safely broken down and absorbed by the body. Results of this procedure typically last six to nine months.
