Plastic Surgery Prevelle Chicago
Prevelle Silk is a FDA approved hyaluronic acid filler that is combined with Lidocaine, a local anesthetic, resulting in less pain with injection. Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the human body that acts like a sponge to slightly expand soft tissue. Prevelle is used for fine lines, such as the wrinkles on the upper lip.
Dr. Casas will inject Prevelle when you are in the office or as part of another procedure. Dr. Casas makes every attempt to reduce any pain associated with the procedure. To keep you as comfortable as possible, she applies topical agents as well as ice or injected anesthetics to the areas of concern. After the procedure, patients typically experience minimal discomfort and mild side effects such as bruising, and they are able to immediately return to normal activities. Your results will last 3-6 months, and most patients benefit from touchup sessions that are progressively spaced farther apart.
