Revanesse Versa is a relatively new dermal filler which can be used for a number of purposes. Approved in December 2017 by the FDA, Revanesse Versa has already become popular with users of injectable fillers. The dermal filler which is composed mainly of hyaluronic acid can be used as a facial filler to even out wrinkles as well as a lip filler for better lip volume.
The advantages of using Revanesse Versa
Revanesse Versa uses smaller particles of hyaluronic acid making it a lot smoother to inject than other fillers. The results of the filler have been reported to last longer than other fillers and the post injection swelling is much less. The injections contain lidocaine which numbs the skin and makes the process less painful and more comfortable.
Prollenium Medical Technologies, the Canadian company that manufactures Revanesse Versa has stated that over one million syringes of the filler have been used with no side effects.
The uniform spherical size or the hyaluronic acid in Revanesse Versa improves the final result of the product. Revanesse Versa injections have a higher viscosity than other fillers which makes it easier for the injector to administer. The longer lasting results of Revanesse Versa are attributed to a higher molecular weight than other fillers.
How does Revanesse Versa work?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that helps to keep skin hydrated. When injected under the skin the hyaluronic acid attracts water to the area and holds it there to give the skin a smoother and fuller look.
If you choose to get Revanesse Versa injections the injector will first identify the areas that are to be treated. The solution is then injected with the help of very fine needles into the area where wrinkles need to be smoothed out.
If being used as a lip filler, Revanesse Versa is injected carefully into the lips to increase their volume and give them a fuller look.
