Prevelle™ is a new and exciting hyaluronic acid (HA) gel that is injected just under the skin’s surface to temporarily fill wrinkles for a more youthful appearance. Considered a soft tissue filler, it’s main advantage is that it contains lidocaine so the initial injections are less painful than other hyaluronic acid fillers. Like other dermal fillers, Prevelle™ can reduce moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and is particularly well-suited to nasolabial folds that run from the nostrils down to the corners of ones mouth. Approved in 2008 by the FDA, Prevelle’s results are typical to most dermal fillers in the three-to-six month range.
