Prevelle® Silk is a dermal filler that can restore a more youthful appearance to the mid- and lower face. It is based on hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that is naturally occurring in the human body, and it includes lidocaine, which is a local anesthetic. The lidocaine makes the injection of Prevelle® Silk less painful. Prevelle® Silk will plump up the skin, filling fine facial wrinkles, and creases. A common location where Prevelle® Silk is used is in the nasolabial folds, or the lines which run from near the nose to the corners of the mouth.
Since hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the body, there is no risk of long-term irritation or rejection. Prevelle® Silk is injected directly into the tissue. Distribution is important in the treatment and treatments require several injections.
Results with fillers are seen immediately and will last 3 months.
