Evolence is a brand of dermal filler that is used to decrease the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face. A collagen-based gel, it is injected under the skin, and is particularly effective for moderate to deep wrinkles, especially those from the nose to the corners of the mouth, known as nasolabial folds. The procedure for administering Evolence injections is relatively simple.
Preparing for Evolence
Before an Evolence procedure, a patient should consult with a qualified medical professional to determine if Evolence treatment is appropriate. The consultation will also clarify the results that can be expected from the procedure. While side effects or other issues are rare with Evolence, the patient will probably also be tested to ensure there is no allergic reaction to the filler.
During the Procedure
Evolence is administered in precisely measured doses in locations pre-determined by the doctor. The doctor will inject the filler in precise areas on the face to fill in lines or winkles, or sometimes to slightly alter or enhance contours of the face. The procedure usually takes an hour or less, depending on how many injections are administered. A local anesthetic can be used to minimize discomfort.
After the Evolence Procedure
After an Evolence procedure, a patient may immediately continue with everyday activities. The injection sites might be somewhat red, bruised or swollen for a time after the procedure, and it is prudent to avoid extended sun exposure until healing is complete. The effects of the procedure will be immediately visible, but will become more pronounced over time. Typically, an Evolence procedure lasts from six months to a year before touch-up treatment is necessary.
