The aging process is something that is impossible to avoid, and it doesn’t only affect our physical and cognitive ability, it also changes our appearance. Some of the most obvious visible changes occur to our face. As we get older, the skin on our face begins to become lined and wrinkled. It can also lose elasticity and become thinner and sag. These effects combined can cause many people to feel self-conscious and while topical creams and makeup can help hide such issues for some time, they cannot delay the inevitable forever. Fortunately, there are a variety of cosmetic treatments that can help to turn back time on your appearance. One of these is an injectable treatment called including Revanesse Versa, that we are pleased to offer here at Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center in Deerfield Beach, FL.
What is Revanesse Versa?
Revanesse Versa is a very popular form of dermal filler. As their name suggests, fillers are designed to add volume and fullness to the skin. They are injected into the skin where they plump up the tissue, erasing wrinkles and lines, reducing the appearance of scar tissue and fill out the cheeks, giving patients a refreshed, younger appearance.
The main ingredient in Revanesse Versa is hyaluronic acid, a gel-like substance that is naturally occurring in our bodies. Hyaluronic acid is a moisture-binding ingredient that helps keep our skin hydrated, glowing, elastic and smooth. However, as we get older, our natural production of hyaluronic acid slows down, causing our skin to become drier, looser and develop lines and wrinkles. By injecting a hyaluronic filler such as Revanesse Versa back into the skin, it is possible to reverse some of the effects of aging. This makes Revanesse Versa an ideal solution for patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their skin and are looking for a minimally invasive, simple solution.
The Revanesse Versa procedure
This injectable filler is very easy to administer. The Revanesse Versa solution is in a syringe with a very fine needle. Although most patients find that the injections themselves are painless, it may be possible for you to have some topical anesthetic if you wish. Revanesse Versa is typically injected into the skin around the nasolabial folds, which run from each side of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Many people refer to the lines that form here as smile lines, since they become more pronounced when you smile. As you get older, loosening of the skin can make these lines turn into much deeper grooves.
As the filler is injected, it causes the skin to plump and fill, smoothing out these lines so that they are less apparent. The effects of your Revanesse Versa procedure should be evident immediately, and with no downtime to consider, you can begin to enjoy your new appearance immediately.
How long do the effects of Revanesse Versa last?
Revanesse Versa, just like other fillers, is absorbable. This means that over time, your body will naturally absorb it and the effects will be less pronounced. However, many patients can maintain their new, younger appearance for as long as 12 months before further treatment is required.
