Versa is similar to Allergan’s Juvederma Ultra in application. At this time Versa does not come with lidocaine, an anesthetic, and so we use a topical numbing cream or inject lidocaine for a block. For those especially anxious we can order a Rx for Ativan to calm your nerves the day of the procedure. Pain is variable per individual and many have this done without any anesthetic with no difficulty.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION – PATIENTS
What is Revanesse Versa?
Revanesse Versa is hyaluronic acid dermal filler. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that is found within the body. It may be produced by bacteria and purified for use as injectable soft tissue filler in order to correct the appearance of facial wrinkles and creases, (nasolabial folds). The product is approved for use in the U.S. by the Food and Drug Administration for the cosmetic treatment of facial wrinkles and creases.
Are there any warnings I should be aware of?
If you have an adverse inflammatory reaction, such as redness, pain and swelling that persist for one week or more after treatment with Revanesse Versa, you should report this immediately to your doctor. If you are under the age of 22 you should not be treated with Revanesse Versa.
Warning: One of the risks with using this product is unintentional injection into a blood vessel. The chances of this happening are very small, but if it does happen, the complications can be serious, and may be permanent. These complications, which have been reported for facial injections, can include vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs, or permanent scarring of the skin. If you have changes in your vision, signs of a stroke (including sudden difficulty speaking, numbness or weakness in your face, arms, or legs, difficulty walking, face drooping, severe headache, dizziness, or confusion), white appearance of the skin, or unusual pain during or shortly after treatment, you should notify your health care practitioner immediately.
Are there any reasons why I should not (contraindications) receive the Revanesse Versa injection?
You should not be treated with Revanesse Versa if you:
are pregnant or breastfeeding, as the safety of these products for use during pregnancy, or in women who are breastfeeding, has not been studied
You should never use Revanesse Versa in conjunction with a laser, intense pulsed light, chemical peeling or dermabrasion treatments, or with Over-the-counter (OTC) wrinkle products or prescription wrinkle treatments within 4 weeks (28 days) prior to treatment, as there is a possible risk of inflammation at the treatment site if these procedures are performed before treatment.
What are the risks?
Bleeding and Bruising: Bleeding is usually minimal and resolves within a few minutes. It is possible to have a bleeding episode from the injection of the local anesthesia or filler that requires treatment, but it is unusual. Bruising in the area is also an expected reaction and can take up to a week to resolve.
Other risks that are less likely, but may occur, include the following: Acne-like skin eruptions, Skin sensitivity (rash, itching, tenderness), Skin infection, Damage to nerves or blood vessels, Skin lumpiness, Scarring, Skin necrosis (death of the skin), Hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin), Reactivation of herpes infection (blisters or skin sores).
As with using any dermal filler, there is a risk of allergic reaction. If you have a very serious allergic reaction (anaphylactic shock) you may require emergency medical help and be at risk of death. Some symptoms of allergic reactions are: a rash, having a hard time breathing, wheezing when you breathe, sudden drop in blood pressure, swelling of the face, fast pulse, sweating, dizziness or fainting, inability to breathe without assistance, a feeling of dread.
One of the risks with using this product is unintentional injection into a blood vessel. The chances of this happening are very small, but if it does happen, the complications can be serious, and may be permanent. These complications, which have been reported for facial injections, can include vision abnormalities or blindness.
Ask your doctor if you have questions about any of the side effects, and please tell your doctor or your doctor’s staff right away if you have any side effects.
