Evolence Collagen Fillers Offer Alternative to Juvederm, Restylane

While thousands of people continue to pursue BOTOX injections and injectable fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane to get rid of wrinkles and fine lines, a new generation of collagen-based fillersare offering more natural-looking results.

EVOLENCE®collagen fillers received FDA approval in June 2008, and may be a valuable alternative to conventional wrinkle removal procedures. This cosmetic filler made with natural sugar, and the compounds injected into the skin are designed to mimic the body's natural collagen; the solution binds better than other hyaluronic fillers, and quickly integrates with the skin's tissues for a firm and even appearance.

Dr. Sachit Shah, a Cosmetic physician in Vancouver explains that EVOLENCE® may even be a better choice than Juvederm and Restylane because results look natural and last much longer. The costs are also roughly the same as other leading dermal fillers on the market (Source: RealSelf.com).

For those who only want to get rid of finer lines and wrinkles, EVOLENCE® Breeze is another product developed by the makers of EVOLENCE®, and works on the lighter signs of premature aging instead.
