Medical Conditions and Prevelle Silk

Prevelle Silk is among the most advanced, contemporary anti-aging solutions. Prevelle Silk uses a special gel called hyaluronic acid or HA. This gel is excellent for filling wrinkles and uneven patches on the facial skin. Prevelle Silk is considered safe and is being widely used by women across all age-groups. However, in some medical conditions, the use of Prevelle Silk needs to be assessed in a more detailed manner.

Medical Conditions Posing Risks in Administering Prevelle Silk

The use of Prevelle silks is not advisable among:

  • People with a history of allergic reactions to basic, Prevelle Silk procedure ingredients like lidocaine and protein of gram-positive bacteria. Lidocaine is used as an anesthetic in Prevelle Silk and is known to induce severe, respiratory allergic reactions among some individuals.
  • People suffering from disorders wherein hyperpigmentation is noted. In fact, patients with a history of pigmentation-related disorders too are recommended not to undergo this procedure.
  • People who are receiving any kind of immunosuppressive therapy. This kind of therapy is usually administered to patients with a history of extreme, allergic reactions.
  • People who have a history of healing very slowly from scars, i.e. wherein the formation of new skin tissue is considerably slow or impaired. This is critical since administration of Prevelle Silk is followed by a small recuperation period wherein the facial skin needs to heal naturally.
  • People using NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) or blood-thinning agents like warfarin. These agents can cause excessive bleeding at the time of injecting Prevelle Silk. Even people who have used such drugs in the recent past, for a considerable period, are advised against this procedure.

Possible Prevelle Silk Contraindications

Please note that the though the overall safety of Prevelle Silk has been substantiated, the possibility of side-effects among women who are breastfeeding or pregnant cannot be completely ruled-out. Similarly, this procedure isn't recommended to individuals below the age of 18 years.
