Does perlane (dermal fillers) feel natural? I've never had fillers before. I've read some comments complaining that the area felt hard after perlane (dermal fillers) injections. Is that normal? Does it stay hard and unnatural feeling? .

In brief: Hardness improves

It's normal to feel the filler if pressing on the skin but it should not feel like a hard lump or appear on the surface.
It works by plumping up the skin so you can "palpate" the filler. Usually feels like a firmness under the skin. Also the initial hardness that you feel is the initial swelling, bruising and inflammation caused by the injection which improves after a few weeks.

The idea is to smooth the product out so it does not feel unnatural or hard.
But, it is a volumizer, in that it is an added material into your skin/dermis. It should feel "firm" not hard.
