For those who want fuller lips, there’s a fantastic new dermal filler to consider. Versa is a lip filler that’s also great for erasing wrinkles in other areas of the face.
What Is Versa Lip Filler?
Versa is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler created by Revanesse for use in the lips and under the eye area. It is an injectable treatment that makes wrinkles disappear and provides the necessary fullness to give you a more youthful look.
About Versa Lip Filler
While comparable in many ways to other lip fillers, Versa has some properties that make it different from similar products. Having received FDA approval in 2017, Versa was previously used successfully in Canada for four years. With over a million treatments of Versa worldwide, the filler has an impeccable track record for safety and efficacy.
Benefits of Versa Lip Filler
When selecting a filler for your aesthetic needs, you should consider the benefits over competing treatments. In the case of Versa, possibly the biggest benefit is the almost complete lack of post-treatment swelling. According to data from Revanesse, even when a patient experiences post-treatment swelling, it is typically 24% less severe than other products.
The aesthetic benefits that Versa offers lie in its chemical composition. Tiny particles make up the filler, offering a smooth consistency that creates a very natural result.
Besides its effectiveness, Versa is biocompatible and biodegradable, meaning that your body will absorb it naturally as it breaks down. This means that there are no remnants to burden your body or be a cause for health concerns.
Versa contains high-quality hyaluronic acid that tends to offer longer-lasting results for the recipient. Additionally, animal lovers will be pleased to know that Versa does not contain animal products or by-products.
Good Candidates for Versa Lip Filler
Almost every adult with wrinkles and visible signs of aging is a good candidate for Versa. There are only a few cases in which you may want to hold off or abstain from using this innovative dermal filler.
Pregnant or breastfeeding women will need to avoid the treatment until they are no longer breastfeeding. Furthermore, people with a history of allergic reactions should consult their doctor before getting Versa treatments. In any case, the specialist will ask for your medical history to be sure that you are a good candidate.
Safety of Versa Lip Filler
The product’s FDA approval certifies that Versa is safe to use. Keep in mind that there is a list of other treatments and products that you should avoid applying in conjunction with Versa within a month of treatment.
If you plan on getting a Versa treatment, avoid over-the-counter wrinkle products and laser or intense pulsed light treatments. If you’ve had any of these treatments recently, you will simply have to wait until your doctor gives you the green light.
Frequently Asked Questions About Versa Lip Filler
The time it’ll take for you to see the full results of your treatment depends on how long it will take for the filler to settle. This will vary from person to person but generally may take up to four weeks. Until that point, you will notice gradual improvement as the filler integrates into your facial tissue. You should see some improvement right away, however.
Versa dermal filler is administered via injection. This means that there isn’t much that you will need to do in order to prepare for treatment. You won’t need to take time off work or arrange for someone to drive you to the doctor’s office.
When preparing for your Versa treatment, you should focus on keeping your skin as healthy and smooth as possible. Avoid excessive sun exposure and make sure you don’t have cold sores or acne breakouts on the day of treatment. If your skin has any issues leading up to your appointment, make sure to let the doctor know.
First of all, you may be wondering what contouring is. Facial contouring refers to changing the shape and proportions of parts of the face. A specialist will use dermal fillers to correct asymmetries and create a natural-looking contour.
Versa is great for contouring and can help you achieve a specific result in your appearance. You can emphasize your favorite aspects which can include the lips, jawline, nose, cheekbones, and/or chin.
Many patients may want to combine several treatments to maximize their aesthetic results. Versa is perfect for use in conjunction with other treatments. For example, Botox and other neuromodulators can be used in tandem with Versa.
Additionally, you may be able to combine microdermabrasion and other facial treatments with your Versa injections. Ask your doctor about creating a treatment plan that fits your goals.
Versa causes almost no post-treatment swelling and most patients do not experience any at all. Therefore, recovery is more agreeable than even that of other fillers. However, you may be asked to abstain from strenuous activity for one to two days after the treatment.

With time, your body absorbs the Versa lip filler safely and naturally. This means that the support to your skin will subside and the skin will return to its previous condition. However, there are a few things that you can do to prolong results for as long as possible.
Scheduling maintenance appointments approximately once a year will help you achieve longer-lasting results. These maintenance appointments are sessions where small amounts of lip filler are injected into the treatment area.
Keeping your skin healthy will also maximize the duration of your results. Protecting your skin from excessive sun exposure is a general anti-aging tip that will also benefit your Versa-treated areas. If you will be doing any sunbathing, make sure to use the appropriate sunblock.
Sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher should provide adequate protection when you’re out in the sun. You want to make sure that the product you choose for sun protection covers both UVA and UVB rays. Reapply often!
Choosing high-quality skincare products will also help prolong the results from your Versa treatment. Follow a skincare routine that boosts your aging prevention and makes your skin look and feel great during your daily activities.
Products with hyaluronic acid, collagen, or retinol offer maximum anti-aging benefits while helping you maintain the effects from your Versa treatment.
