Revanesse® Versa™ is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler used to correct the appearance of wrinkles and creases on the face. Versa is different than other fillers due to its natural substances and advanced technology in its preparation. It is also longer lasting than other fillers and causes less swelling after injection. Versa allows you to get a treatment and carry on with your day with no embarrassment.
Versa is a homogenous dermal filler that is created using a wet milling process and proprietary formula. The spherical shape creates a long-lasting effect and a full, smooth appearance. The hyaluronic acid used in Versa has a high molecular weight, which contributes to longer lasting, natural-looking smooth skin.
Revanesse Versa can be injected throughout the face to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds. Versa is effective on forehead wrinkles, lips, brows, nasolabial folds (parentheses), smile lines, crow’s feet, at the jawline, and in between the eyebrows. Results are immediate and last around 6-9 months (but can vary depending on the person and placement).
Revanesse Versa is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler injected into the face. Following the injections, some patients can expect slight swelling.
Revanesse Versa is hyaluronic acid dermal filler. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that is found within the body. It may be produced by bacteria and purified for use as injectable soft tissue filler in order to correct the appearance of facial wrinkles and creases, (nasolabial folds). The product is approved for use in the U.S. by the Food and Drug Administration for the cosmetic treatment of facial wrinkles and creases.
Bleeding and Bruising: Bleeding is usually minimal and resolves within a few minutes. It is possible to have a bleeding episode from the injection of the local anesthesia or filler that requires treatment, but it is unusual. Bruising in the area is also an expected reaction and can take up to a week to resolve.
Swelling: Swelling is also expected and may take several days to a week to resolve. It is unusual but medical treatment may be necessary if swelling is slow to resolve.
Pain: Some discomfort is expected with injections but usually lasts less than a day.
Other risks that are less likely, but may occur, include the following: Acne-like skin eruptions, Skin sensitivity (rash, itching, tenderness), Skin infection, Damage to nerves or blood vessels, Skin lumpiness, Scarring, Skin necrosis (death of the skin), Hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin), Reactivation of herpes infection (blisters or skin sores). As with using any dermal filler, there is a risk of allergic reaction. If you have a very serious allergic reaction (anaphylactic shock) you may require emergency medical help and be at risk of death. Some symptoms of allergic reactions are: a rash, having a hard time breathing, wheezing when you breathe, sudden drop in blood pressure, swelling of the face, fast pulse, sweating, dizziness or fainting, inability to breathe without assistance, a feeling of dread. One of the risks with using this product is unintentional injection into a blood vessel. The chances of this happening are very small, but if it does happen, the complications can be serious, and may be permanent. These complications, which have been reported for facial injections, can include vision abnormalities or blindness.
If you have an adverse inflammatory reaction, such as redness, pain and swelling that persist for one week or more after treatment with Revanesse Versa, you should report this immediately to your doctor. If you are under the age of 22 you should not be treated with Revanesse Versa.
