Prevelle Silk


It is common knowledge that age, heredity, and stress can wreck havoc on our skin. You may have noticed that the younger, smooth face of just a few years ago has gradually been replaced by visible lines, wrinkles, and creases. Both sexes eventually succumb to the inevitable signs of aging skin given enough time regardless of heredity or environmental factors.

Prevelle Silk is a special dermal filler created primarily for the immediate and safe treatment of tiny nose-to-mouth lines thus restoring a softer, more youthful appearance. It replaces natural volume loss which will correct facial contours and provide more fullness to the skin. This filler is a purified form of the naturally occurring polysaccharide hyaluronic acid.

Prevelle Silk is commonly used for naso-labial creases, lip enhancement, and worry lines to name a few. It is a gentle and very subtle way of taking years off of your appearance. The number of injections needed depends on the volume and location being treated. The filler is pre-mixed with Lidocaine making it a more comfortable and pain-free experience.

The Silk difference.

  • Increased comfort with the addition of lidocaine
  • Effective treatment for lines and folds
  • Soft, natural results
  • Convenient, same-day procedure
  • Immediate results
  • Minimal irritation post-procedure
  • Little or no downtime

Following injection the product binds to water which remains stable for months. Non-stable forms of this same compound last only days to weeks. Having no animal products eliminates the risk of disease transmission, and also greatly reduced the risk of severe allergic reaction in those sensitive to beef, chicken, and eggs.

The length of time for treatment effectiveness depends on several factors such as age of patient, lifestyle and muscle activity, skin type, and injection technique. The gel particles of Prevelle Silk are absorbed so gradually that it allows for a smoother maintenance schedule. As the gel is absorbed it is replaced by water, so the less concentrated the gel the more binding capacity of water which is a major reason effectiveness time is longer.

Once totally absorbed the gel disappears without a trace. Most patients choose to repeat treatment in 3-6 months. Lip augmentation usually requires follow-up treatment in 3 months. You can always “mix it up” and use different combinations of gels and injection sites and frequency keeping in mind you are always in control of your looks.
