What is Prevelle?
Doctor Answers 6
Prevelle is a soft hyaluronic acid filler
Prevelle is a hyaluronic acid filler that has anesthetic (lidocaine) in it. It is a soft filler that is nice to try in areas that need soft products. I use it around the eyes, in the lips and a few other locations.
In the future, there will be a thicker version of the product that will help to lift wrinkles for longer time.
One reason that it is well received by patients that participated in a clinical trial with Prevelle, is that it causes less pain. The lidocaine in the product provides gentle anesthesia as the product goes in and is an alternative to nerve blocks or local anesthesia injections.

Prevelle Silk, A New Dermal Filler for Lips or Wrinkles
Prevelle Silk is a new hyaluronic acid dermal filler that can eliminate wrinkles or create fuller lips instantly. Prevelle Silk contains lidocaine, a numbing agent that helps minimize discomfort associated with the injection. Prevelle is also unique because it leaves virtually no swelling. People can get an injection in the afternoon and look beautiful just hours later. The cost for Prevele Silk in my Raleigh, North Carolina plastic surgery office is $295.00 for a 1 cc injection. Results lasts approximately 2-3 months.
Other Dermal fillers like Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane can provide results for wrinkle elimination or lip plumping for up to one year. Stuctural fat grafting can provide permanent results for filling lines and wrinkles, plumping lips filling under eye hollows, or adding fullness to cheeks or any areas of the face that could benefirt from added fullness.
When performed with expertise by an exerienced injector, the results of Prevelle Silk, Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane or fat grafting can look and feel natural.
A Short Lasting HA Filler
Prevelle is a hyaluronic acid filler. Its claim to fame was that it was less painful than Juvederm and Restylane. This was because the anesthetic, lidocaine, is pre-mixed into the syringe.
However, now that Juvederm and Restylane now contain lidocaine, there remains only one possible benefit to Prevelle. It is shorter lasting than its competitors. If a patient wants to dip their toes into the filler market, but is afraid of possible side effects or grotesque looking results, this may be the product for them. It only lasts 2-3 months.
I can see no other benefit to Prevelle and only carry a small amount of it in my practice.

Almost Painless with Prevelle Silk
Prevelle Silk is a relatively new hyaluronic acid (HA) filler. It's is mixed with a lidocaine anesthetic to decrease pain, lasts for about 3 months, and is a great filler for lips or finer lines around the mouth as an alternative to collagen for this area. In clinical trials with Prevelle Silk, our patients found Prevelle Silk to be less painless than other HA fillers, and that's proving to be true as more patients use it now that it's FDA approved.
Hyaluronic acids - (Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane, Prevelle, Captique, etc.) are the most popular dermal fillers, and are ideal for patients who are have never had dermal fillers before. Hyaluronic acids are great introductory fillers because of their safety, soft feel, and moderate duration of action. They also work by replacing lost volume in the skin, and are naturally broken down over time by the body's enzymes. Furthermore, they last longer than collagen fillers, ranging from 3 months to 1 year depending on the specific brand of product and where it is placed in the face.
If you’re unsure that tissue fillers are right for you or if you’re on a tight budget and want a quick fix for a specific event or photo shoot, then try Prevelle Silk. Prevelle Silk is a hyaluronic acid that also contains lidocaine, a common local anesthetic, to increase your comfort during the facial filler procedure. Prevelle Silk can last up to 3 months, so there is less commitment time if you want a short-term preview of the results. Results are immediate, and you may experience temporary injection site reactions such as swelling, pain/tenderness, and redness, and although rare, lumps/bumps may occur. These symptoms are typically mild and in most cases resolve within 7 days.
