As we age, our skin produces less collagen, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles and loss of youthful volume, which can make us look older than we feel! While topical skincare products can be somewhat effective, dermal fillers are the best non-surgical option for restoring a more youthful appearance. At Pinnacle Dermatology & Skin Rejuvenation, we are happy to offer Revanesse® Versa dermal filler to help you achieve your anti-aging goals.
What is Revanesse® Versa?
Revanesse® Versa is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) filler used to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. HA naturally occurs in the body to help maintain hydration levels, plumping, lifting, and sculpting the skin for a more youthful appearance. Plus, Revanesse® Versa provides natural-looking results, so you won’t have to worry about appearing “overly-done”.
While the primary use of this filler is to address aging in the mid-face, it has also been found effective in treating the following:
- Crow’s feet.
- Hollow-looking cheeks.
- Tear troughs or under-eye hollows.
- Downturned mouth corners.
- Thinning lips.
- Lines above the lips.
- Smile lines.
Who is a Candidate for Revanesse® Versa?
Adults 22 years and older who wish to soften the appearance of wrinkles and folds in their lower face can often benefit from Revanesse® Versa dermal filler. Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, have a history of keloid or hypertrophic scarring (remove) or have a history of severe allergic reactions should not undergo this treatment. A consultation appointment with Dr. Gray is needed to determine if this dermal filler option is right for you and your unique treatment goals.
The Revanesse® Versa Treatment
During your Revanesse® Versa treatment session, you will be offered a topical numbing cream for the targeted area to ensure you are comfortable. The skin will then be cleansed, and the filler expertly placed into the skin to treat your lines and wrinkles. Treatment is fairly quick and usually takes 10-20 minutes to complete.
Revanesse® Versa Results
Following this treatment, you may experience mild swelling or redness, which will dissipate over time. Revanesse® is also created with Thixofix® cross-linking technology, creating a more natural feel and appearance than other HA fillers. There is minimal to no downtime required, so you can return to your normal activities right away. You can begin to see results right after injections, with continued improvement 1-2 weeks after treatment. The longevity of your results will depend on the severity of your lines and wrinkles, lifestyle habits, and skincare routine, and metabolism though many people can enjoy results for up to 12 months.
