Versa+ filler is an FDA approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that can be used to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds in patients 22 years of age or older. It has been shown to cause less swelling and bruising than some equivalent brands.
Versa+ filler can be used on various areas of the face and body. In addition to correcting scars that leave depressions, it is effective in improving:
- Nasolabial folds (run from corners of nose to corners of mouth)
- Marionette lines (run downward from corners of mouth)
- Downturned corners of the mouth
- Jowl pre-sagging
- Chin wrinkles
Who is a candidate for Versa Filler?
Versa Filler is recommended for individuals who want to help diminish facial wrinkles and folds.
However, it is important to note that if you are currently pregnant or breastfeeding, or have a history of hypertrophic scarring or keloid formation, you should not undergo Versa Filler treatment. These factors may affect your candidacy for the procedure.
Versa+ Filler Procedure
Before a patient is given Versa+ filler, the treatment area is cleaned. Injections are then made with a fine needle, typically taking about 15 minutes to perform.
There is little-to-no downtime; many patients return to their normal activities right away. Versa+ filler is also FDA-approved for mixing with the anesthetic lidocaine, which helps make injections less painful. Typically only 1 or 2 treatments are needed to achieve the full benefits of Versa+ filler.
Versa+ Filler Results
Results are visible immediately after injection, and sometimes last up to a year or more. Because results are temporary, treatments must be repeated to sustain them. Touch-up treatments may prolong the effects of Versa+ filler.
Versa+ Filler Side Effects
Side effects of Versa+ filler are usually not serious, and go away on their own. They occur at the injection site, and include the following:
- Mild irritation
