As we age, a loss of vital facial volume becomes inevitable. Unfortunately, as the face naturally loses volume from depleted fat stores and the diminished production of collagen, wrinkles and creases will start to appear. These facial lines are one of the first signs of early aging. Topical lotions and creams, no matter how expensive, do little to replenish moisture, restore the lost collagen supply, or tighten lax skin.
Fortunately, the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation can reduce or reverse some of the signs of aging through innovative, nonsurgical techniques and injectable treatments, including Revanesse® Versa™. Dr. Leonard Miller and Dr. Sean Doherty can incorporate Revanesse Versa, an injectable dermal filler, into facial rejuvenation treatment plans to smooth fine lines and deep wrinkles, restore areas of age-related volume loss, and to tighten tissues. With benefits that can last up to six months, Revanesse Versa can take years off the appearance, without the downtime of surgery.
Revanesse Versa Can:
- Decrease fine facial lines
- Smooth deep creases, like Nasolabial Folds and Frown Lines
- Increase volume along cheeks and under eyes
- Plump the lips and ease lip lines
- Firm lax tissues
- Contour and restore symmetry in facial features
REVANESSE IN BOSTON:
Revanesse Versa is an innovative soft tissue filler, created from Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance. The high molecular weight of Revanesse Versa’s HA ensures smooth, consistent results, retaining vital moisture in the treated area for long-lasting results. The filler is an excellent choice for eliminating fine facial lines as well as deeper creases, including the Glabella or Frown Lines between the brows, the Nasolabial Folds, and around the eyes and mouth. Revanesse Versa offers several advantages to more invasive techniques, as each treatment takes only a few minutes, has little to no downtime, and provides immediate results.
THE IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR REVANESSE
Revanesse Versa can make a good noninvasive treatment choice for almost anyone looking to smooth lines or treat age-related facial volume loss. The FDA-approved filler is perfect for those patients over the age of 22, in generally good health, who understand the injectable treatment, and have realistic expectations for their results.
THE REVANESSE PROCEDURE
Each Revanesse Versa session is performed in one of the comfortable and private treatment rooms at the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation. During the consultation appointment, Dr. Miller or Dr. Doherty will ensure the treatment is right for an individual’s desires and determine the target area. Generally, only one session with Revanesse Versa is needed to achieve the desired results.
Treatment with Revanesse Versa will take less than an hour to complete. While the injections are not considered painful, a local or topical anesthetic will be applied to ensure optimal patient comfort. Once the session is complete, patients can return to their normal routine.
REVANESSE RECOVERY and results
Revanesse Versa takes less than 60 minutes in the office, getting patients back to their daily life right away. Little to no downtime is needed as side-effects are mid and there are no restrictions on normal activities. Exercise, however, should be postponed for the first 24-48 hours. Revanesse Versa is made from a unique formulation of HA, meaning optimal results with a decreased chance of swelling.
The side-effects from Revanesse Versa are normally mild but can include redness, tenderness, itching, and bruising. These will generally resolve over the first day or two following treatment. More serious complications such as allergic reactions, infections, and nerve damage are rare, however, it is important that patients only trust an experienced, board certified provider for their injectable treatments.
The results from Revanesse Versa can be seen immediately after the session. Patients can then enjoy their enhanced appearance for a full six months before requiring a maintenance treatment. Once the results from Revanesse begin to fade, a repeat session can safely extend the benefits.

The cost of your Revanesse Versa treatment will depend on several factors, including the target area and the extent of correction desired. During your personal consultation with Dr. Miller or Dr. Doherty, the exact cost of treatment will be determined.
