Working Toward Painless Treatments with Injectable Fillers – Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dallas – Sam Jejurikar, MD

Tag Archives: Evolence

Treatments with injectable fillers, such as Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, and Evolence, not to mention others, can restore a youthful appearance to the lips, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, midface, jowls and lower eyelids, with minimal to no downtime.  Many patients avoid these treatments, though, because they have heard horror stories from friends or colleagues about the pain associated with these treatments.  Suffice it to say, this needn’t be the case – there are steps your plastic surgeon can take to make these treatments more comfortable.

Recently, BioForm Medical, Inc., makers of Radiesse, received approval from the Food and Drug Administration to mix the filler with lidocaine, an injectable local anesthetic, prior to injection into the skin.  This approval was based on a large study of patients, in which 100% of patients reported feeling less pain when Radiesse was pre-mixed with lidocaine.  Many plastic surgeons, including me, have begun to pre-mix lidocaine with all fillers, including Juvederm, Restylane, and Evolence, not to mention Radiesse, prior to injecting into patients.  The results of treatment are still great, but patients are significantly more comfortable during treatment.

Others things your plastic surgeon can do to make your treatment with injectable fillers more comfortable include:
•    Using topical anesthetic gel for at least 30 minutes prior to commencing any injections.
•    Augmenting treatment with topical anesthetic gel with injections of local anesthetic into nerves above and below the lips.
•    Using small gauge needles and slow injection techniques

Combining all of these treatments can ensure that you’ll not only look fantastic after your treatment with injectable fillers, but you’ll feel pretty good during the treatment too!


<!–[endif]–>Evolence®, a collagen-based injectable filler used for the correction of facial wrinkles and folds, has recently been given permission by the FDA to advertise results lasting 12 months. While relatively new to the United States, Evolence® has been available in Canada and Europe for many years.

The filler uses porcine (pig) collagen to restore a more youthful appearance. This new generation collagen filler is injected into the mid-to-deep layers of the skin for the correction of moderate to deep facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Results are visible immediately after treatment.

The most common side effects include mild swelling, redness, and pain. A skin test is not required because porcine collagen is the most genetically similar to human collagen.

Evolence® is now clinically proven to last for 12 months! Call 214-827-2814 to learn about our special rates!
