How do Prevelle Silk Injections Work?

Prevelle Silk Injections are soft tissue fillers. It is a clear gel-like substance that is injected into the skin to add fullness and volume to the face. The hyaluronic acid in the injections absorbs water and causes the skin to plump up. In the process, it also hydrates the skin and keeps it supple.

Am I a candidate for the treatment?

If you are over 21 years of age and are wanting to work on the fine lines on your face, then this dermal filler is an option for you. Since Prevelle contains hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring substance in our skin, it does not cause any adverse reaction when injected. However, prior to the procedure, you will be advised to go off blood thinners like aspirin or ibuprofen.

What is the Procedure to Administer Prevelle Silk Injections?

Prevelle Silk does not just contain hyaluronic acid but also has lidocaine which is a local anesthetic. This means that the shots that will be given are relatively painless. Prevelle is administered through injections that push the filler into the upper or the middle layer of the dermis. Depending on whether the area being treated has a crease or deep folds, you may need one or more syringes of the filler. The entire procedure is completed in less than half an hour.

What is the cost of the treatment?

A single syringe of Prevelle Silk that measures 0.075 ml costs about $400. Depending on your wrinkles and the area covered, you might need one or more syringes. Prevelle is among the cheapest of the dermal fillers since the concentration of hyaluronic acid in it is lowest.
