Are Prevelle Silk and Prevelle FDA-approved?

FDA approved

Prevelle Silk is an FDA approved dermal filler uniquely formulated to temporarily decrease the evidence of fine wrinkles and deep tear troughs. The filler is composed of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally occurring in the body and resorbed over time. Prevelle Silk differs from other fillers in that it does not swell over time and can be injected very superficially, which is perfect for tear troughs and fine lines around the mouth and eyes.

Prevelle Silk treatments are only available through healthcare professionals who are trained and experienced in dermal filler injections. The treatments are given in an office setting, where a very fine needle is guided below the epidermis and into the connective tissues within the dermal area of the face where deep lines and folds develop. There, the filler works like a sponge within the skin, where it also absorbs water, giving you a more youthful appearance.

Prevelle Silk contains a pain-numbing lidocaine anesthetic, which keeps patient discomfort at a minimum. In most cases, Prevelle Silk treatments are performed in just minutes and require little or no down time, although bruising may occur no matter how experienced the injector. Cosmetic results are instantaneous, and the younger appearance achieved in a single Prevelle Silk treatment can last up to 4 months, after which time the body safely absorbs the biocompatible filler.

The rule with filler injections is... if it feels like a lump and looks like a lump, massage it down. If it doesn't go down with massage, it can be reversed with hyaluronidase injections. If it is a lump occuring months after the filler was injected, it could be a granuloma. Granulomas occur rarely and the treatment is steroid injection. Either way, you should speak to your practitioner about your concerns.

Yes, Prevelle is FDA approved.  It is a very short term hyaluronic acid dermal filler.  Be sure to go to a physician that is experienced with fillers.  A good place to start is the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).

It is FDA approved.....


Prevelle is approved by the FDA for the treatment of facial folds and wrinkles. It is closely related to other hyaluronic acid based fillers and is quite safe in the right hands.

Prevelle is FDA approved

Yes, Prevelle Silk is approved by the FDA for the treatment of moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles. It is approved for injection into the nasolabial folds and is also used "off label" for injection into wrinkles and folds in other areas of the face.

Prevelle Silk Is FDA Approved

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. According to the manufacturer, Mentor Corporation, people can get an injection in the afternoon and look beautiful just hours later. In my Raleigh, NC plastic surgery practice I have had only patient experience a slight bruise following an injection of Prevelle silk. The photpgraph attached was taken immediately before and just five minutes following an a Prevelle Silk injection. The cost for Prevelle Silk in my North Carolina plastic surgery practice is just $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.

Prevelle Silk is a nice addition to the many choices of injectable fillers available today. Prevelle Silk could be an ideal choice for an individual who in interested in results for an event, someone who needs a result in just a few hours without down time or for people with a budget of less than $300.00 for a filler.

When performed with expertise by an eperienced injector, the results of Prevelle Silk, Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane or fat grafting can look and feel natural. For best results, look for a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist with years of experience with a variety of dermal fillers. Be sure to view many before and after photographs. In most offices, many staff members have received dermal fillers in their lips or other areas of the face and would be pleased to share their experience with you.

Prevelle Silk is the first of many Hyaluronic acid based fillers containing lidocaine that has received FDA approval. Mentor Corporation expects other products to receive FDA approval in the future.
