FDA Approval Status for Elevess

Elevess is a dermal filler based on hyaluronic acid. It has the power to moisturize the skin, giving it a soft and fresh appearance and reducing wrinkles. 

FDA Approval

Elevess received FDA approval in 2008. The FDA approved Elevess for use in treating lines and wrinkles on the face. It can also treat small scars, such as acne scars and other minor facial irregularities.

How Elevess Is Different

Elevess is different from other facial fillers in that it contains not only a high-quality, safe and effective form of hyaluronic acid, but also a small amount of lidocaine. This mild anesthetic is injected along with the filler, making administration of injections much more comfortable for the patient. Elevess is also less expensive than many other dermal fillers, making it an affordable option for those who wish to try this type of treatment.

How Elevess Works

The Elevess formula is based on hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that occurs naturally in the skin. HA is a powerful moisturizer that attracts additional moisture to the skin. When injected into small facial wrinkles, Elevess adds this moisturizer along with the gel base, giving the skin a firmer, softer appearance and filling in the unwanted lines. Elevess is particularly effective for small lines around the eyes or mouth, and can also be successfully used to ease the appearance of nasolabial folds.
