Some of my patients don't want to undergo a full face lift, but this can actually be a really nice way to rejuvenate the face with very little downtime.
Glendale, AZ, (PRWEB) September 9, 2008 -
A dermal filler, recently approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), promises added comfort for women and men seeking to remove facial wrinkles and/or facial folds.
Glendale plastic surgeon, Dr. Heidi Regenass recently discussed and demonstrated this product on Arizona's Fox 10 Arizona Morning show. This new dermal filler, known as Prevelle Silk, greatly enhances the comfort of patients as the result of containing the local anesthetic lidocaine. Indeed, patients reportedly feel much less pain during an injection of Prevelle Silk than they would have had they been injected with a different product similar in chemical composition to Prevelle Silk.
Prevelle Silk makes use of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance within the human body, which is able to reduce the appearance of facial lines and facial folds almost immediately by adding dermatological volume. The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive surgery (AAFPRS) found that injections of hyaluronic acid was the second most popular nonsurgical cosmetic treatment performed by its members with an average of 178 such procedures performed in each of its members.
The way in which Prevelle Silk works contrasts starkly to the way that Botox Cosmetic relaxes facial muscles to lessen facial lines and facial folds.
Again, Glendale plastic surgeon, Dr. Heidi Regenass, has developed a unique strategy for each individual patient. She determines whether Prevelle Silk alone or whether Prevelle Silk in combination with Botox Cosmetic (to be applied to areas other than those areas to which Prevelle Silk was applied) will be most effective in treating the wrinkles, lines and folds produced by sun exposure and aging.
Dr. Regenass praises the potential of Prevelle Silk for facial skin care, saying, "Some of my patients don't want to undergo a full face lift, but this can actually be a really nice way to rejuvenate the face with very little downtime." Indeed, this treatment is referred to as a "lunch hour" procedure because it only requires roughly 30 minutes to complete.
Dr. Regenass continues that it is "... a great new product." She also calls this new derma fill "...a liquid lift."
While the effects of Prevelle Silk are temporary, most people will not need to have the treatment repeated in less than three months. Dr. Regenass' experience means that she is well qualified to determine whether your dosage of this product will need to be varied upon repeat treatments.
