Right now, dermal fillers are all the rage. If you’re looking for a quick and effortless way to improve your appearance and smooth away the visible signs of aging, then dermal filler treatments are ideal – especially if you aren’t interested in plastic surgery. At Southeastern Institute of Restorative Medicine in Dothan, AL we know that Revanesse Versa is one of the best dermal fillers for people who want to correct moderate to severe wrinkles in the mid-face.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Revanesse Versa?
Most people are good candidates for Revanesse Versa. If you are healthy, over the age of 22, not pregnant or breastfeeding, and you are not allergic to the active ingredients in this filler, then you are likely a good candidate for treatment. We will be able to determine your eligibility for this dermal filler during a consultation appointment, where we will go over factors such as:
- Skin type
- Wrinkle severity
- Skin laxity
- Previous treatments
- Medical history
- Medications and supplements
- Known allergies
Because Revanesse Versa is formulated with hyaluronic acid as its main active ingredient, and because HA is found naturally in the body, the vast majority of people will make great candidates for this dermal filler. Some experts consider hyaluronic acid to be a hypoallergenic substance since the molecule is biocompatible, even in synthetic form. A few other indicators you may be a good candidate for this treatment include:
Your Skin Condition
The condition of your skin is likely one of the biggest qualifying factors for this treatment. Revanesse, as a brand, is designed for the treatment of moderate to severe age-related volume loss, which is somewhat different than other brands like Juvederm that are designed for mild fine lines and wrinkles. If you have moderate to severe wrinkles around your nose and mouth, then you are likely an ideal candidate for this treatment.
Although Versa is approved for use in people who are at least 22 years old, because this filler is designed for moderate to severe wrinkles, your age may also be a factor in qualifying for this treatment. Most people in their 20s will not have deep lines or wrinkles that need to be corrected with an advanced dermal filler. However, people in their 40s and 50s are usually ideal since wrinkles at this age have progressed to create deeper etches in the skin.
Revanesse Versa is primarily an anti-aging treatment designed to fill in volume that is lost through the natural aging process. Although this filler, like any other injectable filler, can be used to contour certain areas of the face, it’s ideal if the primary goal for your treatment is to restore lost volume in the face. This treatment works best by increasing volume in the sub-dermal layers of the skin to restore the smooth structure of your skin. If this is your goal, then this treatment may be right for you.
This filler is primarily used in the mid-face to treat nasolabial folds, which are the wrinkles stretching from the sides of your nose to the sides of your mouth. This Revanesse filler can also be used beneath the eyes to fill in hollow tear troughs, on the chin to correct chin wrinkles, and even on the jawline to smooth the appearance of sagging jowls. We can talk about other possible areas of treatment during your consultation appointment.
How Does Revanesse Work?
Revanesse is among a class of dermal fillers made with hyaluronic acid. However, the unique structure of this filler is flexible, pliable, and firm. Although this filler has a thinner consistency than Juvederm, it can still be used to correct moderate to severe age-related concerns. This is particularly important if you are looking for a filler that can create natural-looking results.
Your treatment will take about 30 minutes to complete and will only require one syringe of the filler product to achieve your goal results. Several injections will be made into areas of your skin where volume loss has created fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, and other hollow areas. You can schedule this appointment during any time of the day and feel free to return to your normal daily schedule afterward.
When Can You See Results?
Like any other dermal filler, it will take several days for this filler to fully settle into the sub-dermal layers of your skin. You will be able to see some results immediately after your treatment since the hyaluronic acid filler instantly adds volume to the sub-dermal layers of the skin. It may take as long as two to four weeks before you see the final results of this treatment.
Hyaluronic acid-based fillers all work in the same way. When the HA is injected into the skin, it takes several days for the formula to break down and be absorbed by the deepest dermal layers. After this, the hyaluronic acid in the filler will help your skin attack moisture to your skin cells so that the volume of your skin can increase.
How Long Do Results Last?
Most patients can expect the results of this treatment to last for about nine to 18 months. This time range makes Revanesse one of the longest-lasting dermal fillers on the market, particularly for fillers that are used on the mid-face. It’s common for fillers used on the cheeks to last for over a year, but fillers placed in the nasolabial region don’t tend to last as long. Revanesse Versa revolutionizes the longevity of fillers for the mid-face.
How Frequently Should You Have Treatment?
As a general rule of thumb, you should aim to have additional treatments annually so you can enjoy consistent results. For most people, this means that you will need to have a touch-up appointment every 12 to 18 months. However, you should have another treatment sooner if you notice the return of visible signs of aging; likewise, if your results are lasting longer than 18 months, then you may be able to delay your treatment.
Can Results Last Longer?
For some patients, age and basic biology may determine how long results last compared to the average patient. For example, younger patients may be able to enjoy results that last a bit longer, while mature patients may need treatments more frequently to maintain the desired aesthetic goals. One unseen factor for how long your results last may be your genes, specifically how fast your body burns through collagen and hyaluronic acid.
Naturally, there are other things you can do to help your results last longer. Basic lifestyle factors may give your body additional tools to enhance the outcome of your treatment. For example, drinking enough water and eating a balanced diet can be essential for healthy, youthful-looking skin. Two important factors will include:
The skincare products you use each day can do a lot to maintain or enhance the results of your treatment. Using anti-aging skincare products, especially serums and moisturizers, will give your skin additional support. Products containing collagen and hyaluronic acid are particularly important to use since these products can improve the superficial layer of the skin to reduce minor fine lines.
Protecting your skin from sun exposure is also important, particularly because UV rays can cause dermal filler formulas to break down more quickly in the skin. When you plan to be outside during the day, you should be sure to wear adequate SPF so you can prevent any premature loss of hyaluronic acid and collagen.
What Are the Benefits of This Filler?
This filler is designed to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles in the mid-face; we consider this a benefit because most dermal fillers are designed to treat mild to moderate concerns. The fact that this filler can treat even deep wrinkles means you have a non-surgical option to rejuvenate your appearance. Non-surgical treatments are often preferred for patients because non-surgical treatments have fewer side effects and risks to consider.
Another important benefit of this filler is the fact that most people are good candidates for treatment. Because the active ingredients in this filler are so compatible with the body, most people are potentially eligible regardless of age, skin type, or skin condition.
Rejuvenate Your Beauty
Dermal fillers are increasingly popular, especially because they can smooth the appearance of the skin without any painful invasive techniques. Fillers like Revanesse van rejuvenate your appearance in as little as 30 minutes with results that can last over 12 months.
