29 Mar Dermal Fillers Require the Best Product and Technique
Dermal fillers are a fantastic way to restore volume you’ve lost over the years or create volume where you always wanted it. Spectrum Dermatology offers complimentary consultations on all cosmetic procedures, including dermal fillers. It is important to remember that it is not just choosing the right dermal filler (and there are many), but the skill of the provider also plays a key role in your results. Let’s take a look at one of the most popular dermal fillers in our centers, Revanesse Versa.
During your consultation, your provider will discuss all of the dermal filler options available to you. Each dermal filler is designed for a specific use(s), each lasts a different timeframe, and although most are made with hyaluronic acid (HA), that isn’t always the case. Your dermal filler treatment plan is individualized just for you, but many clients decide that they want Revanesse Versa for at least one part of the treatment plan.
More on Revanesse Versa Dermal Filler
Versa is made with HA, which means it provides a temporary plumping and fullness while also having the ability to smooth out lines and wrinkles. HA is already synthesized by the body and it’s a great humectant—this means that it has the inherent ability to retain the moisture that makes skin soft, taut, and hydrated. HA fillers like Versa typically have minimal if any side effects because the body does not consider HA a foreign object.
Although many dermal fillers use HA, there’s a good chance that you have only heard of a couple. Juvederm and Restylane have long been top picks for HA fillers, and they are still a fantastic solution for many patients and treatment sites. Revanesse Versa is relatively new to the market, debuting at the start of 2018, and it has gained a large following in the past three years. It was FDA approved in 2017 to treat creases and facial wrinkles, and it uses a specialized wet milling process when creating the filler to ensure that the particles are perfectly uniform and sphere-shaped. This means more smoothness and better, more organic-looking volume. In short, more desirable results
Not all HA Fillers are the Same
Even though HA is routinely found in most dermal fillers, that doesn’t mean all dermal fillers are the same or interchangeable. The manufacturing process can make a big difference. When comparing HA dermal fillers side by side, Versa is most like Juvederm Ultra Plus because it offers a thicker application. However, many patients have found there is even less swelling and bruising with Versa, and this is attributed to the flawlessness of the particles. There are also no numbing agents built into the Versa syringe, but numbing options are available topically prior to injection for patients who want a little more comfort.
The idea of less swelling and even less downtime unsurprisingly quickly appealed to patients. That may be attributed to the makeup of Versa, but don’t overlook the injector’s skill. You deserve to have a reputable, experienced injector taking care of you and your dermal filler needs. The technique used by the injector can also dramatically reduce unwanted side effects like bruising and swelling as well as minimize downtime. Ultimately, getting gorgeous results requires equal parts selecting the best dermal filler and leading injector.

All HA dermal fillers offer immediate results, though if you are new to dermal fillers or a particular dermal filler it’s a good idea to plan 2 – 4 weeks in advance if you’re getting a treatment for a special event. This will allow for any swelling or light bruising to dissipate. Dermal fillers with HA typically last up to 12 months, but may not last quite as long in the lips since this area moves so much. This is true of any dermal filler, so planning for annual or bi-annual maintenance injections is a good idea if you want to retain your results.
