Evolence Collagen Wrinkle Filler is a collagen-based dermal filler approved by the FDA. It is designed to treat moderate to deep facial folds and wrinkles, especially in the nasolabial area, the folds or lines extending from the nose to the corners of the mouth. Evolence is made of porcine collagen, which is injected to the treatment area to replace lost collagen in the skin or dermis for a more youthful effect.
Collagen is a protein that composes up to 80 percent of the skin, which is responsible for the maintenance of the skin's elasticity. As people age, collagen in the skin breaks down. This can lead to facial lines, folds and wrinkles.
Effective Collagen Replacement Filler
Evolence dermal filler aims to replace collagen lost in the skin, giving a youthful looking effect that is semi-permanent. Evolence collagen filler is a yellowish gel product that is injected to the mid to deep dermis facial skin layer. It is less concentrated than other dermal fillers for a smoother application. It does not have anesthetic ingredients like bovine based collagen fillers. It can add volume and structure to depleted facial surfaces caused by aging or acne scar skin depressions.
Evolence is derived from pig or porcine collagen which is similar to human tissue, making it a safer dermal filler product. Porcine collagen makes Evolence dermal filler more durable and pliable, for softer skin results.
Instead of using chemical ingredients, Evolence uses natural sugar to increase the collagen's durability. Other dermal fillers that use hyaluronic acid absorb water to create the effect needed; Evolence is the structural agent which uses its patented Glymatrix Technology, using the natural sugar D-Ribose for more natural looking results. Evolence is designed to provide predictable and consistent results because of its natural ingredients.
