Revanesse Versa at Moxie Med Spa, Denver, CO

Worried about looking older than you feel? Are you noticing fine lines and wrinkles on your face? Revanesse® Versa™ may be just what you need to help regain a youthful appearance. Ronica Kirwin and Samantha Haberkorn are certified injectionist under the supervision of Dr. Christine Skorberg, providing this service at Moxie Med Spa.

What is Revanesse® Versa™?

Revanesse® Versa™ is an injectable dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid, designed to soften and correct fine lines and wrinkles in the face by adding volume and restoring hydration. The treatment helps rejuvenate your facial appearance, giving you a glowing, more youthful look.

Hyaluronic acid is a chain of sugars produced naturally in the body and its purpose is to aid skin hydration by binding to water. As you age, your natural production of HA slows down, your skin becomes a bit drier, and you begin to see signs of decreased collagen production and skin elasticity.

Revanesse® Versa™ contains a special proprietary formula of extremely high quality hyaluronic acid particles. This formulation helps ensure the tiny HA spheres are all perfectly formed and are exactly the same size, allowing maximum absorption by the skin. The hyaluronic acid aids in hydrating the skin and rejuvenating your appearance by restoring a healthy, youthful glow.

What are the Benefits of Revanesse® Versa™?

Some of the benefits of Revanesse® Versa™ include:

  • No downtime – you can resume your normal activities right after the procedure
  • Minimally invasive, no surgery or stitches needed
  • Can be used in most areas of the face
  • Lasts longer than many other fillers by breaking down more gradually
  • Can be more easily shaped due to a thinner consistency
  • FDA approved and contains no animal products
  • Premium quality ingredients made in small batches with stringent testing
  • Side effects are typically mild and brief

Is Revanesse® Versa™ Right for Me?

If you’re a healthy man or woman over the age of 21 and want to soften and correct the lines and creases in your face or improve the contours of your face that have lost volume, you will likely benefit from Revanesse® Versa™.

During your initial consultation, we’ll discuss all your options with you and help you determine if Revanesse® Versa™ is the best choice for you, based on your medical history and unique aesthetic goals.

If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, injectable dermal fillers should not be used. They should be avoided if you’re on or have recently used blood thinners or have any bleeding disorder issues. Caution is also advised if you’ve experienced an allergic reaction from dermal fillers in the past that required hospital admission.

REVANESSE® VERSA™ filler can be used to create volume and smoothness in several areas of the face including:

  • Lips
  • Cheeks
  • Nasolabial Folds

What to Expect After Your Botox®, Dysport® and/or Xeomin® Procedure: Post-Treatment Instructions

 

  • It takes approximately 3-7 days to start seeing the results of BTA so it is important to be patient. You should notice an improvement in your wrinkles and facial appearance by the end of the first week. You may have some redness of the skin around the injection sites for the first day – this is not an allergic reaction. You may also notice some very slight swelling that will subside by the first day or two. Though uncommon, you may have a small amount of bleeding from the injection sites and may develop bruising. If you notice either of these, hold pressure for fifteen minutes and apply cold compresses for a few minutes. Other important factors to remember include:
  • Remain upright (no bending over or reclining) for four hours
  • Do not massage or scratch the injection site
  • Exercise the treated muscles every 15 minutes for four hours
  • Avoid makeup for two hours after injections
  • On the day of treatment, avoid heavy aerobic activity, hot showers/baths, and consumption of alcohol
  • Makeup may be applied shorty after treatment unless otherwise instructed.  Apply makeup gently, avoiding strenuous rubbing of the injection area
  • The treatment area may be gently washed a few hours after treatment, avoiding aggressive scrubbing or rubbing
  • Sunbathing or excessive UV exposure should be avoided until the redness or swelling have subsided

 

What to Expect After Your Filler Procedure: Post-Treatment Instructions

 

Depending on the filler material used, you will begin to see the results from your procedure immediately or soon after the procedure. For most injectable filler products, you should notice an improvement in your wrinkles and facial appearance either by the time your leave your appointment or by the end of the first week. You may have some redness of the skin around the injections sites for the first day – this is not an allergic reaction. You may also notice some very slight swelling that will subside by the first day or two. Though uncommon, you may have a small amount of bleeding from the injection sites and may develop bruising. If you notice this, hold pressure for fifteen minutes and apply cold compresses frequently for a couple of days. Bruising, if present, should not last beyond a week and usually resolves within a few days. Other important factors to remember include:

  • You may apply ice, as needed, for the remainder of the day to reduce swelling.  Apply for 20 minutes of each hour.  A bag of frozen peas works very well.  Swelling typically subsides in the first 2-3 days
  • To minimize bruising and swelling, avoid the use of: Vitamin E, Green Tea, Fish Oil, Aspirin and Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory drugs until all bruising and swelling have resolved.
  • The day of treatment avoid heavy aerobic activity, hot showers/baths and consumption of alcohol
  • Gently massage any nodules that may appear during the next 24 hours
  • Try to avoid lying on the areas injected for the two nights immediately following your treatment.  This can cause extra swelling, sensitivity and potentially displace the product that was carefully disbursed into the treatment site
  • It is normal to feel ‘firmness’ in your injection area for the first several days after treatment.  Over time, the area will soften, leaving a soft natural looking result
  • The treatment area may be gently washed a few hours after treatment, avoiding aggressive scrubbing or rubbing
  • Avoid prolonged sun or UV exposure for two weeks
  • Avoid saunas and steam baths for two weeks
  • Avoid makeup for four hours after injections
  • Immediately report any worsening or persistent symptoms or side effects
  • Do NOT consume alcoholic beverages at least 24 hours prior to treatment (alcohol may thin the blood and increase the risk of bruising)
  • Avoid anti-inflammatory/blood thinning medications, if possible for a period of 2 weeks before treatment. Medications and supplements such as aspirin, vitamin E, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, St. John’s Wort, Omega 3/Fish Oil supplements, Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve and other NSAIDS have a blood thinning effect and can increase the risk of bruising and swelling after injections.
  • Schedule your Dermal Filler and Botox appointment at least 2 weeks prior to a special event which you may be attending, such as a wedding or a vacation. Results from the Dermal Filler and Botox injections will take approximately 4 to 7 days to appear. Also bruising and swelling may be apparent in that time period.
  • Discontinue Retin-A 2 days before and 2 days after treatment.
  • Reschedule your appointment at least 24 hours in advance if you have a rash, cold sore or blemish on the area.
  • If you have a history of cold sores please let your provider know, they may put you on an anti-viral medication prior to treatment.
  • Be sure to have a good breakfast, including food and drink before your procedure. This will decrease the chances of lightheadedness during your treatment.
  • You are not a candidate if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

POST CARE:

  • Avoid significant movement or massage of the treated area. Unless instructed by the provider.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours.
  • Avoid extensive sun or heat for 72 hours.
  • Avoid consuming excess amounts of alcohol or salts to avoid excess swelling.
  • If you have swelling you may apply a cool compress for 15 minutes each hour.
  • Use Tylenol for discomfort.
  • Try to sleep face up and slightly elevated if you experience swelling.
  • Take Arnica to help the bruising and swelling, start at least 2 days prior to injections.For more information email us at  info@moxiesugar.com
