Evolence : Evolence is a structural agent made of collagen, a protein. It is a gel that is injected into the skin. Persons with a history of allergy to collagen, a history of recurrent anaphylactic reactions or a presence of recurrent severe allergic reactions should not recieve this treatment. Allergy testing is not a typical pre-procedural recommendation, unless you believe you may be allergic to collagen products.

Vanity: I have seen a significant number of adverse reactions with these types of injections. Let the buyer beware.
