New FDA-Approved Evolence Is Not Your Mother's Collagen

Posted on Jul 22, 2008 at 6:00PM

There is a new kid on the injectable filler block -- Evolence, but Evolence is not your Mother's collagen.

Yesterday, July 21, 2008, the FDA approved Evolence, a porcine-based (pig) collagen filler that is said to last for twelve months, much longer than bovine (cow) collagen.

Although Evolence will be in competition with hyaluronic acid fillers -- fillers that plump by adding and attracting moisture to the skin such as Restylane, Perlane, and Juvederm -- this isn't your Mother's old-school bovine collagen injection.

 

Pros:


  • Pig skin is similar to human skin so source should be antigenic

  • Skin testing not required

  • Lasts up to one year

  • No refrigeration

  • No anesthetic

  • Less concentrated than your Mother's collagen -- Cosmoderm, Zyderm I, Cosmoplast, Zyplast, Zyderm III

Cons:
