If it’s time to reclaim your youthful appearance, Revanesse Versa is one way to do it. Revanesse Versa is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler formulated using advanced development methods, top-of-the-line ingredients, and meticulous quality testing to give you the best possible results. As a dermal filler, it is used to treat wrinkles and creases that are caused by age.
Revanesse Versa Overview and Uses
Like most popular, safe, and effective fillers, Revanesse Versa is comprised of Hyaluronic Acid.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a molecule that binds to water molecules; our bodies produce it naturally, but this production slows as we age. This gradual reduction of HA leads to mid-face flattening, volume loss, and tissue descent. With an HA filler like Versa, facial volume is restored, reducing visible signs of aging.
Revanesse Versa was specifically formulated to reduce the signs of aging and smooth nasolabial folds (the lines that run from your nose to the corners of your mouth). Versa’s design differs from similar HA fillers as it provides immediate results with less swelling. It also lasts for up to 12 months, longer than most other HA fillers on the market.

What to Expect During a Revanesse Versa Consultation
During your consultation, we will spend time getting to know you and your facial aging concerns. We will examine your facial skin, discuss your medical history, and collect information about other cosmetic and aesthetic treatments you’ve recently tried. Our team will document a list of prescription and over-the-counter medications and supplements as well. After collecting all of this information, Dr. Hanke will be able to make a recommendation for Revanesse Versa or other treatments that work best for your needs and goals.
What to Expect During Your Revanesse Versa Treatment
While Versa contains a small amount of lidocaine to ensure comfort, you may request ice or topical numbing prior to your first injection. Using a very fine gauge cannula, Dr. Hanke will inject the filler beneath your skin in the treatment area. The injection process should last no longer than 15 minutes, with your full safety and comfort in mind.
Revanesse Versa FAQs
On the market since 2012, Revanesse Versa was FDA approved in the United States. If you’ve been looking for something to reduce signs of aging, Revanesse Versa may be right for you. The best way to learn more about a cosmetic product is during your consultation at the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of Indiana. In the meantime, here are some questions and answers about Revanesse Versa.
What Areas Can Be Treated Using the Versa Filler?
Revanesse Versa is specifically formulated for lines, wrinkles, and folds around the mouth. These include:
- vertical lip lines, also called smoker’s lines
- nasolabial folds, the lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth
- marionette lines, the lines that run from the corners of the mouth to the chin/jawline
How Does Revanesse Versa Work?
Revanesse Versa is a hyaluronic acid, and that means it attracts moisture that is already present in your skin. The moisture that it attracts adds volume to the areas where Versa is injected, giving you a younger appearance by adding more fullness and decreasing the look of wrinkles and fine lines.
How Is Versa Administered?
A very fine needle is used to inject Revanesse Versa just below the skin. For most people, the procedure is comfortable with only a tiny pinch. To achieve a natural and well-balanced look, Dr. Hanke will typically inject the cosmetic product into several different areas depending on the location of any lines or hollowness of the face.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Revanesse Versa?
Healthy adults who wish to look younger are typically good candidates for Versa or other dermal fillers like Restylane or Juvederm. You’re also a good candidate if you don’t smoke and have realistic expectations about cosmetic treatments. Versa is not recommended f you’re pregnant or nursing.
What Are the Differences and Similarities of Revanesse Versa vs. Juvederm or Restylane?
Like Juvederm and Restylane, Revanesse Versa is a hyaluronic acid intended for use as a dermal filler. Each cosmetic product is formulated to treat the signs of aging like wrinkles and creases. While these fillers may appear to be interchangeable, they are manufactured and formulated a little differently, This affects outcomes for different patients. By seeing a dermatologic surgeon for your treatment, you ensure that the best product is chosen for your needs, goals, and safety.
Does the Treatment Hurt? Can Anesthesia Be Used?
The size of the tiny cannula used to administer the dermal filler minimizes discomfort. Most people report that it feels like acupuncture or a tiny pinch. Topical numbing cream and/or ice may be applied to the treatment area.. For this type of treatment, general anesthesia is not necessary. The injectable contains lidocaine to ensure comfort throughout the procedure.
What Is in a Syringe of Revanesse Versa?
Each syringe of Versa contains long-chain HA. To activate cross-linking, which works to gradually release a cosmetic product’s active ingredients into the skin, BDDE is added to the HA. The BDDE increases the product’s stability, something that studies show increases Versa’s longevity. Revanesse Versa is also dialyzed for a week to defuse the cosmetic product’s pH and osmolality, making your body more likely to integrate it into the tissues. You can learn more about these details on the official website for Revanesse Versa.
How Long Does a Treatment With Revanesse Versa Take?
In most cases, a Revanesse Versa treatment takes 15-30 minutes. However, treatment time is based on your particular needs and the number of injections necessary to achieve your desired results.
When Will I See Results?
Following treatment, you may start to see results immediately. A recent study found that Versa produced less swelling than other dermal filler brands. This might make it a better product for you if you need to return to work or another important activity following your cosmetic treatment.
How Long Does Versa Last?
Revanesse Versa lasts for up to 12 months, however, individual results vary, including product longevity. How long the product lasts does depend on how much is administered, the area where the filler is injected, and your metabolism. Dr. Hanke utilizes advanced cannula injection techniques which maximize the longevity of the product.
Is There Any Downtime?
For most people, there is little or no downtime with a Revanesse Versa treatment. A recent study found that those in their test group experienced less swelling with this particular dermal filler than with others, making it preferable to some patients.
How Much Does Revanesse Versa Cost?
As with any cosmetic procedure, cost varies from patient to patient. We determine the cost of treatment by how much filler you need to achieve the desired result. We will give you a quote following your consultation. Price varies from practice to practice based on provider experience. At the LASSI, Dr. Hanke is the only physician who administers injectables, ensuring patient safety and superior results.
Who Shouldn’t Get a Revanesse Versa Treatment?
If you have had a bad reaction to hyaluronic acid injectables in the past, we do not recommend Versa. Furthermore, if you have active acne or other skin inflammation caused by an infection, you should wait until the skin has cleared up before getting injectables. For some patients, prescription medications or certain health concerns may prevent you from receiving Versa and similar fillers. During your consultation, please provide us with a full health and medical history to ensure you are cleared to receive Revanesse Versa.
What Are the Potential Side Effects of a Treatment With Revanesse Versa?
The most common side effects of Versa are bruising and swelling, which subside more quickly than similar injectables. Some people experience temporary discomfort at the injection site or redness. Serious side effects are rare, and most can be avoided by making sure that you’re receiving treatment from a practice with a board-certified dermatologist performing the procedures. You should also seek cosmetic treatments from a practice with experience injecting hyaluronic acid fillers.
Where Can I Find Revanesse Versa Before and After Photos?
Versa is a relatively new product, but before and after photos can be found on the official website. We also have before and after photos we can show you during your visit.
