Prevelle®

Prevelle Silk® with Dr. Walter Erhardt in Albany, Georgia

Similar to other popular fillers such as Restylane® and Juvederm®, Prevelle Silk contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance within the skin responsible for boosting skin elasticity and hydration.

Dr. Walter Erhardt offers Prevelle treatments in his Albany plastic surgery office to patients wishing to reduce physical signs of aging on their face. Prevelle Silk is a non-surgical treatment that can target sign of aging in just a single office visit.

Benefits of Prevelle

  • Prevelle contains small amounts of lidocaine (a local anesthetic) to reduce pain at the injection site.
  • Fine lines, wrinkles and folds can all be reduced with Prevelle.
  • Prevelle is also a great treatment for volume deficiencies in the cheeks or under the eyes.
  • Prevelle can give you soft, natural-looking results in just a single treatment.

Prevelle is safe for use on all skin types and tones. Ideal candidates should be motivated to improve their appearance and possess realistic expectations. Prevelle is not recommended for people who have active skin infections, or those who have had a previous allergic reaction to any of the ingredients in Prevelle.

How Prevelle Works

Your consultation: During your consultation, it's important to be honest and upfront about your medical history, cosmetic expectations and recovery goals. Your consultation will begin with a physical exam, followed by a discussion of Prevelle. You will also have the opportunity to view Dr. Erhardt's gallery of before and after patient photos.

Procedure: Prior to treatment, your skin will be cleansed with an antiseptic. The treatment areas will be marked. Using a fine needle, Dr. Erhardt will carefully inject Prevelle beneath the surface of your skin. He will follow this process up with a gentle massage to ensure even distribution.

Healing time: Immediately following treatment, your skin may feel fuller than normal. You may also experience some temporary swelling or redness. There is no downtime following treatment, but Dr. Erhardt may recommend that you abstain from alcoholic beverages or strenuous exercise during the evening following your procedure.

Expected Results: You will be able to notice results right away. Your final results will be long-lasting, but not permanent. As time passes, the hyaluronic acid will be gradually absorbed by your body and your skin will return to its pre-treatment state. Results from Prevelle can last anywhere from three months to one year.
