What is Versa?
Versa™ is a newer generation dermal filler that has been used over a million times since gaining FDA approval in 2017. Made with hyaluronic acid, this product holds considerable power to smooth lines and wrinkles and also enhance facial contours through meticulous application. Versa™ is biodegradable and also biocompatible since the body naturally makes hyaluronic acid. Over time, the ingredients in the product, mainly hyaluronic acid, break down and get processed out of the body. Revanesse® manufactures small batches of this dermal filler, each one with strict quality standards. Each syringe is thoroughly inspected before leaving the North American manufacturing site.
What Makes Versa Different from Other Dermal Fillers?
At a glance, Versa may look very much like other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. Where it differs the most is in its nearly non-existent swelling after injection. In clinical studies, Versa was found to induce 24% less swelling than other dermal fillers. This is rather significant because, knowing that swelling is likely to be much less than it would be with another product, your injection specialist can better gauge the amount of product it will take to achieve the best results. Versa™ also differs from other dermal fillers on a molecular level. It is made with tiny, spherical particles that produce an extraordinarily smooth consistency. This results in beautiful, natural-looking results even in delicate areas such as under the eyes.
What Areas can Versa Treat?
We commonly use Versa to correct the signs of aging around the eyes, nose, mouth, cheeks, and lips.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Versa?
If you are ready to rejuvenate your appearance without an enormous monetary or time commitment, you may be a great candidate for Revanesse Versa™! This product can reduce the appearance of smile lines and nasolabial folds. It can smooth away the creases that form at the outer edges of the mouth and can enhance the shape and volume of your lips. Versa is also an excellent treatment option for the tear trough area, where it can reduce hollows as well as undereye bags. Standard Versa formulation does not include lidocaine, so you may receive this treatment even if you have an allergy to this local anesthetic. Versa+ does contain lidocaine for improved comfort so should be avoided by those who have a known allergy to this medication.
When you visit us for facial rejuvenation using non-surgical therapies, we will chat with you to ensure that we understand your cosmetic goals and preferences. Then we can explore the services that may be appropriate for you. From there, you get to choose! Because Versa treatment takes just a few minutes, there is a very good chance that we can administer your treatment during that same visit.
Are there any Side Effects from Versa?
Revanesse Versa™ comes with similar side effects as other soft tissue fillers. The most common include risks of temporary redness, bruising, and swelling. Although the risk of swelling is much lower, it does still exist. You can reduce your risk of bruising by avoiding blood thinners, including alcohol, for a few days before your appointment.
What is the Recovery Like After Receiving Versa Injections?
Your recovery from Versa injections should be minimal. You might experience some of the common side effects associated with this treatment, but these are usually mild enough that they do not interrupt your normal routine. Your provider may instruct you to postpone a strenuous workout for a day or two and to avoid lying down for a few hours after your appointment. Aside from these minor recommendations, you can expect to resume your day as usual once you leave the office. Your Versa treatment can achieve immediate results that prompt you to feel like the best version of yourself! These results can last six months or longer.
