Evolence is used for filling moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles, and while new to the US, has been used internationally for about 5 years. Its effects are immediate with little or no swelling or bruising. Evolence is made from natural collagen, allowing injection without prior testing. Collagen is an important support structure in the skin that diminishes with age causing wrinkles and lines. Evolence replaces that collagen, filling the lines and providing a more youthful appearance.
Side effects of Evolence are minimal and include redness, mild swelling, and pain at the injection site. Also, small firm areas under the treated skin may develop that can be noticed when pressed.
