Enthusiasm is palpable for Evolastin. The new treatment, which is delivered via ePrime, is being rolled out now, with an official launch date set for Feb 2, 2012.
E-prime is not a laser. Instead, it uses radio frequency energy to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen elastin and hyaluronic acid directly within the dermis. The energy is delivered via tiny, insulated microneedles.
Unlike other facial rejuvenation techniques that require multiple sessions to see an improvement, Evolastin is akin to a one-hit wonder. Just one treatment produces results within 6-8 weeks, and these results get better and better for the next six months.
Research published in the Archives of Dermatology showed that that volume restoration achieved after one Evolastin treatment is comparable to 37% of that seen after a facelift.
Local anesthetic may be used to increase patient comfort during the procedure. Downtime is minimal. Side effects may include minor redness, swelling, or bruising. An ePrime treatment costs $3,000 – $5,000.
