Default Evolence

As per ASPS:

"The permanent Botox smile may be on the way out. The FDA is expected to approve Evolence for use in the US this spring. Evolence lasts longer and studies have shown that the effects last longer and are “softer” than Botox. Already in use in Europe, Evolence treatments can last up to 12 months.


Unlike some other dermal fillers, EVOLENCE® is made from one of nature's fundamental and most abundant building blocks – collagen. In fact 70%-80% of our skin's dermis is made up of collagen. Collagen depletes naturally over time as we age, the pace of which may be affected by the degree of sun damage, genetics, hormonal changes, smoking, pollution, and other factors. This ongoing collagen loss leads to the appearance of an aged or a tired look through the formation of wrinkles, lines, folds, and changes in facial contour."

I heard the opposite a month or so ago - that Evolence being approved in the U.S. would be unlikely anytime soon. Either way, what I don't understand is why they are comparing Botox and an injectable filler

I also don't understand why Ithey are comparing Botox and injectable filler as well, la_angel. I have seen some pictures though, and the results do seem long lasting and somewhat impressive.

Would you say the results with Evolence are much different than Juvederm or Restylane

From what I understand they last longer. Definitely better than Restylane, but I'm not sure about the comparison to Juvederm. I'll "put my feelers out" so to speak, and follow up on this comparatively.
