Perlane and swelling

Pus doesn't look like Perlane. If there was pus, the doctor might have sent it for a culture. The results can be used to guide your treatment.

Perlane and swelling/complications

Sounds like you had an infection and your provider probably treated you as such? Perlane is a clear gel that slowly is absorbed by the body, not similar in color or viscosity as purulent drainage.

Perlane like any other hyaluronic acid can cause swelling.  Perlane is a clear product that does not look like pus.
