Initial and Long Term Results of Elevess

Elevess is a kind of hyaluronic acid based dermal filler which is injected into the face in order to smooth lines and wrinkles.

Dermal fillers are either synthetic or natural. Products having hyaluronic acid or collagen fall under the natural category of cosmetic fillers. Elevess is an FDA-approved temporary filler having cross-linked hyaluronic acid. It usually lasts for 6 months and helps in filling out facial wrinkles, smile lines and makes the skin look younger. It is injected into the skin with a very thin (30g) needle in the area of wrinkles to restore the skin's youthful appearance. Anesthetic lidocaine is included in Elevess gel, which provides comfort to the patient during and after the injection. Several positive results and negative side effects are associated with this dermal filler.

Initial Results

There will be some immediate enhancement visible in your face after the injection. It causes an immediate reduction in the depth of your face's folds and wrinkles. The lines that run between your nose and mouth will start to fade in early days. The face might even appear a bit plump due to the swelling. Improvement to swelling and redness will take place gradually in the following days. A little bruising may also occur after the injection.

Long Term Results

Elevess is absorbed by the body naturally over a period of time while it supports the skin structure and provides volume to it. However, the improvement begins to diminish within 6 to 12 months after the treatment. Hence, a second treatment is required typically after 6 months. Fillers having hyaluronic acid may cause red spots and bruises on the face that last from 3 to 7 days. 

Possible Side Effects

Blood pooling may occur beneath the skin area where the filler is injected. There is also a rare chance of infection or skin loss in certain conditions. If Elevess is injected superficially or improperly, it may develop small bumps beneath the skin. This can also cause the filler particles to migrate or displace from the original injection site, making the situation worse. A qualified doctor is highly recommended for injection.
