The Science of Rejuvenation
Hyaluronic acid. Sounds scary? Not really. Hyaluronic acid is just the fancy medical term for a sugar compound that occurs naturally in our bodies, and which is responsible for maintaining facial fullness and elasticity in our skin by binding to water like a sponge, absorbing up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Over time though, as we age, our bodies produce less of this important compound.
How Revanesse Versa Works
Revanesse Versa is a new generation of dermal filler. Produced in intentionally small batches by Prollenium Medical Technologies to ensure quality control, Versa has been available in Canada since 2012. Revanesse gained US FDA approval in December of 2017 and has been growing in popularity since.
Revanesse Versa is a hyaluronic acid filler, the same active ingredient in Juvederm and Restylane. However, Versa uses a unique cross-linked HA formula to produce a filler with superior qualities. RV injects more easily, produces a more natural result, is easier to shape and lasts longer than the competition.
Revanesse vs. Juvederm
Under a microscope, Revanesse particles are noticeably smoother and rounder than Juvederm. It’s because of this that the particles will slide over and around each other easier. This translates to a smoother, more natural final appearance. It also means greater ease of shaping the injection, giving our clinicians greater control.
Production and Testing
Prollenium, based in Toronto, Canada is known for their obsession with quality control. As with all fillers their products are biodegradable with a very low risk of allergic reaction. In addition, RV is produced in small batches where all ingredients can be assured of being top quality. Prollenium even visually inspects every syringe produced for any sign of contaminants.
RV can be used to treat a wide variety of areas effectively. It acts a natural-looking filler for frown lines, forehead creases, nasolabial folds (the creases from the edge of the nose to the corners of the mouth), perioral lines (wrinkles around the mouth) and marionette lines (lines from the corners of the mouth to the chin).
In addition, it can plump lips, add volume and shape to cheekbones, redefine nose lines, contour the jaw and chin and remove bags and wrinkles under the eyes.
Downtime and Side Effects
As with all hyaluronic acid fillers, Revanesse Versa has few side effects. Patients may experience some slight redness, bruising and swelling however in most cases should clear up within a few days.
