Evolence is an injectable derma filler that bonds with the skin's natural collagen and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, creases, scars and other facial depressions. Because it works with the body's own collagen, Evolence tends to last longer than other fillers. However, the treatment is not for everyone. Evolence is contraindicated for those patients with certain medical conditions. Speak with your doctor to determine your eligibility for treatment.
Evolence is derived from porcine collagen. If you have a sensitivity to porcine products or a history of allergic reactions to collagen products, you should avoid the treatment.
In some instances, Evolence can cause excess bleeding and in some cases can lead to hematoma. Therefore, it is contraindicated for you if you have a history of blood disorders. Doctors also recommend you discontinue the use of anti-coagulants or anti-inflammatory steroids to prevent severe bleeding and bruising after the treatment.
History of Infection
Like most cosmetic injections, Evolence comes with a risk of infection. If you have an infection or a history of infection, speak with your doctor before pursuing the treatment.
Evolence is not appropriate for you if you suffer from an autoimmune disorder.
Keloid Scarring and Other Skin Conditions
If you have a history of keloid scarring or hyperpigmentation, Evolence should be used with caution as it may aggravate these conditions. If you have an active skin infection on the face, you should avoid the treatment.
Because the safety of the treatment has not been established, Evolence is not recommended for you if you are pregnant or nursing.
If you have herpes, evidence suggests that Evolence may be initiate breakouts or herpetic eruptions.
