Information on Prevelle Silk

     Prevelle Silk is a soft tissue filler that is injected into facial skin to reduce moderate to severe wrinkles such as nasolabial folds (those ridges that may span from the root of the nose to the angle of the mouth). It was approved in March 2008 by the Food and Drug Administration.




What is Prevelle Silk and how does it work?

      A soft, colorless gel, Prevelle Silk is a hyaluronic acid soft tissue filler that contains the local anesthetic lidocaine. The main advantage of this filler is that injections are less painful than other hyaluronic acid products that don't contain lidocaine.

      Hyaluronic acid is a chief component of connective tissues, and it adds volume and fullness to the skin. The number of Prevelle Silk injections that a person receives depends on how deep the fold is.  Some people require a full syringe and others will need one or two syringes. Prevelle Silk results last for three to four months.

Possible Side Effects

      Side effects of Prevelle Silk tend to be mild to moderate and last seven days or less. The most common ones include temporary injection site reactions such as swelling, pain/tenderness, redness and lumps/bumps.
