Evolence: The New Collagen

Talking Makeup is excited to bring you the scoop about Evolence: the new collagen dermal filler.

Pharmaceutical company giant Johnson & Johnson has recently received U.S. Food and Drug Administration clearance to market Evolence, a new collagen.

Evolence is an advanced collagen-based structural dermal filler that provides long-lasting treatment for moderate to deep facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Evolence will be introduced in the U.S. throughout the second half of 2008. Although just approved in the U.S., Evolence has been widely available in other markets such as in Canada, Western and Eastern Europe, Israel, South Korea and Russia since 2004.

Unlike Restylane and Juvederm. Evolence uses tendons that are harvested from pigs, but once extracted, they can’t be traced back to the source. Having Evolence derived from a living source makes the collagen more pure, recognizable by the body, or biocompatible. You might want to think of Evolence as a new generation of dermal fillers or facial fillers. The results of treatment with Evolence are immediate, with minimal to no downtime post-treatment, and clinically proven to last through 6 months. You can call Evolence as the ‘Lunch Time Filler’.
