Prevelle in Paradise Valley, Scottsdale and Phoenix, AZ
These days, there is a wide array of options for restoring facial volume. Although it might not seem like a major cause of aging, loss of volume in the face can make you appear gaunt and weathered. Making certain areas of the face appear fuller – especially the lips – can make you look years younger. Big, pouty lips are also a marker of overall facial beauty. For those seeking an easy, hassle-free way to achieve voluptuous lips and rounder cheeks, Prevelle can be a miracle cure.
How does Prevelle Work?
Prevelle is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler, similar to products like Juvéderm® and Restylane®. When injected into areas of the skin that have reduced volume, the hyaluronic acid acts like a sponge, drawing water into the desired area and creating a plump outward appearance. That’s because hyaluronic acid, a natural component of healthy skin, can hold up to 1,000 times its own weight in water. A trained surgeon, such as Dr. DeVito, can inject the filler directly into the desired area using a fine gauge needle. It goes to work fast, meaning you can get treated today and be ready for a special event by tomorrow night.
Is Prevelle Right For Me?
If you want to achieve full, pouty lips or fill in facial hollows, Prevelle might be right for you. Because of the low concentration of hyaluronic acid, this formula goes to work fast. The results are usually presentable after the first day, although it usually takes up to a week before the final results of your treatment are fully apparent. The main drawback of this product is that the results wear off after 60 to 90 days; similar dermal fillers like Juvéderm® can last up to six months. However, these longer-lasting products also cost more. Dr. DeVito can help you select the best dermal filler for you during your consultation.
Does Prevelle have any Side Effects?
Side effects of the Prevelle dermal filler are generally mild and tend to subside quickly. Minimal swelling usually occurs immediately following treatment. This is because of hyaluronic acid’s ability to attract water; however, the low concentration means that swelling will be very minimal. This usually subsides within the first day or two, meaning your lips will look natural for that last-minute party or other social engagement. There is also a limited risk of allergic reactions with this product. Discuss any allergies you have with Dr. DeVito before any dermal filler treatments.
