Dermal fillers are a standard cosmetic procedure producing results immediately and lasting for months or years. Dermal fillers are injections of ingredients to plump wrinkles and smooth lines on your face. Different types of dermal fillers products are available, and these dermal fillers are injected in the areas around your eyes, mouth, nose, and cheeks.
You often receive dermal filler treatments to enhance your facial features or gain a more youthful appearance. The treatment usually takes about half an hour, with minimal recovery time. However, as with any cosmetic procedure, there are risks, including infection, bruising, swelling, and bleeding.
Dermal fillers are used to trigger collagen production. Collagen is an essential substance that exists in your body to provide structure. Your muscles, bones, skin, and connective tissue all have collagen support systems. A decreased amount of collagen in your skin causes skin laxity and loss of volume. As a result, skin becomes thinner, loses elasticity, and sags, causing fine lines and wrinkles.
During a dermal filler procedure, your skin is cleaned, and an anaesthetic may be applied to keep you more comfortable.
Your healthcare provider injects small amounts of filler under your skin using a thin needle. There is usually not too much discomfort during the injections. Your healthcare provider may inject the fillers in several areas to give plumpness and contour to your face.
After a dermal filler injection, you may have bruises or swelling for a couple of days. These will quickly dissipate. Do note that everyone’s results are different, and how long it takes to see results and how long they last depend on the type of filler you receive.
Revanesse Versa is a somewhat new dermal filler. It is a multi-purpose dermal filler that can be used to optimize the appearance of the cheeks, nasolabial folds, and lips. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is the primary active ingredient in Versa. HA is a naturally occurring substance that can be used to restore facial volume.
Versa is considered a homogenous filler due to the company’s advance manufacturing technique formula. In other words, the filler particles are spherical and uniform, which creates a balance between volume and smoothness.
The viscosity of Versa allows it to be quickly injected with a very fine needle. Using Versa, studies have shown that swelling occurs less often. In addition, versa uses premium quality HA with a high molecular weight allowing it to break down slowly over time for added longevity.
