prevelle silk pittsburgh paNo one needs to tell you how age, heredity and stress can change your skin. The smooth face you saw in the mirror just a few years ago has most likely changed. Now visible lines, wrinkles and folds have begun to show. Both men and women fall victim to the effects of time and to the signs and precursors of the aging skin.

Prevelle Silk® is a unique dermal-filler that immediately, comfortably and safely achieves a more youthful appearance by softening nose-to-mouth lines and wrinkles. It works by replacing lost volume and fullness to the skin as well as restoring youthful contours. This formula consists of purified hyaluronic acid, a natural substance already found in your body.

Prevelle Silk® is commonly used in naso-labial folds, lip augmentation, worry lines, and tear trough under the eyes. Prevelle Silk® is the gentle, discreet way to shed years. The addition of lidocaine makes a more comfortable injection into the facial skin for correction of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, restoring volume and fullness to the skin. The number of injections can depend on the depth and length of the wrinkle or fold.

After injection, the product binds to water and generally remains for many months. Non-stabilized hyaluronic acid products, by comparison, last only a few days or several weeks at most. As a totally non-animal product, there is no risk of transmitting disease or eliciting allergic reaction in patients who are sensitive to common foods, such as beef, chicken and eggs.

How long a treatment holds its effect is very individual. This depends on many factors, such as your age, skin type, life style and muscle activity as well as on the injection technique. The gel particles in Prevelle Silk® are absorbed so slowly that you have ample time for maintenance treatments. As the gel breaks down, water takes its place. The less concentrated the gel becomes, the more water it is able to bind. These facts are the main reasons that treatments with Prevelle Silk® products last so long.

The Procedure

Dr. Vinarski is highly experienced in precise placement of dermal fillers such as Prevelle Silk®. Therefore your end result is natural, with normal movement of your facial features. Prevelle Silk® injections use a small needle inserted into your problem areas and show immediate results. You may experience slight redness and swelling after the procedure, but you can return immediately to normal activities after the short treatment session.

When totally absorbed the gel disappears unnoticed from the body. Most patients choose to have a follow-up treatment six to twelve months after an initial treatment of wrinkles or facial contouring. After lip treatments, a follow-up is normally needed after about six months. The choice to continue or change the combination of treatments, is your own. While the procedure can be repeated as often as you like. You are always in charge of your looks.
