Two New Facial Fillers

collagen_injection_derma_blog_Mar09.jpg Alongside the ever popular Botox, Juvederm and Restylane two new facial fillers are emerging onto the dermatology market. One of the new wrinkle-ridding products is called Evolence and it is a spin-off of collagen injections. Evolence comes from pigs, and according to doctors does not require getting tested prior to injections to make sure you don't have a reaction to the product. The second product is called Prevelle and is made from hyaluronic acid. Prevelle is used to plump wrinkles and fill the wrinkles. Both products have been on shelves and have been injected in Europe for a few years now. CBS News affiliate reported on the new products, "Both products are approved for nasolabial folds, those "smile lines" that often deepen with age. But doctors say they'll work well in other places too, such as the lips." In an industry that heavily relies on Botox injections, we'll see how patients respond to these new kids on the block. It is also important to remember that just like Restylane and Botox, these fillers are not permanent wrinkle removers. They simple are spot treatments for short periods of time.
