The dermal filler Evolence was approved by the FDA in 2008 for use in treating facial lines and wrinkles, and this remains its primary use. However, due to Evolence's unique makeup, it is sometimes used for other types of facial treatments.
Evolence is derived from natural collagen. When injected under the skin, it helps increase the connective and structural tissue in the deeper skin layers. It is also a thicker, firmer gel than many other dermal fillers, making it ideal for use in procedures such as a non-surgical face lift or a non-surgical rhinoplasty.
Evolence for Facial Lines and Wrinkles
Many people wishing to look younger have opted against an invasive, expensive face lift and have turned instead to a non-surgical face lift. This procedure uses injectable fillers to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines, scars and other signs of aging on the face. A non-surgical face lift can last as long as twelve months.
Evolence for Shaping the Nose
The shape of the nose can effect the balance of the entire face. While some structural elements can only be modified through traditional surgery, dermal fillers can be used to even out bumps in the nose or increase symmetry. It can also help patients decide if they wish to undergo a full traditional rhinoplasty.
