Versa

What is Versa?

Revanesse Versa is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler with FDA approval to fill out the moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the nasolabial folds. Hyaluronic acid, the primary active ingredient in Versa, is a naturally-occurring component responsible for your skin’s youthfulness, volume, and suppleness. The gradual loss of hyaluronic acid due to age leads to wrinkles, fine lines, and nasolabial folds. As such, Versa restores your skin’s hyaluronic acid reserves — it reverses the signs of aging and makes your skin look smoother.

Procedure

The Versa treatment concludes within 15 minutes, but your first session might be longer. That’s because our nurse practitioners discuss your cosmetic goals, review your medical history, and examine your facial tissues to curate the treatment according to your specific goals. They calibrate the dosage, mark the treatment areas on your face, and apply a numbing gel to ensure optimal comfort. Finally, the Versa injections are delivered into the strategically-chosen areas with ultrafine needles. The number of injections depends on the treatment areas and your specific goals.

Downtime

Versa is a safe procedure with no downtime or extended recovery periods. You might experience mild redness, swelling, discomfort, itching, and irritation for a few days, but you can resume most of your daily activities immediately. You can even drive yourself back home because the treatment doesn’t involve local anesthesia or sedatives.

Versa produces instant results that gradually improve over the next few days as your side effects dissipate.
