About Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are made of synthetic material that is used to reduce the look of lines and wrinkles, replenish lost volume, or even enhance certain facial features, such as the lips or cheeks. It is a minimally invasive treatment that requires no downtime and offers instant results. This treatment is ideal for patients looking to treat and reduce the unwanted signs of aging that appear on the face through the natural aging process. Each patient has a unique body and situation, and dermal filler treatments are always tailored to match.

When considering which dermal filler treatment to undergo, patients can now choose Versa. We are pleased to be offering this new, versatile, effective, and safe injectable to our patients, providing very natural-looking results.
What is Versa?
Versa is a new multipurpose and FDA-approved injectable filler. Although Versa has only recently been introduced into the US, it has been utilized in Europe and Canada for years as a popular alternative to other hyaluronic acid fillers. This a one of a kind dermal filler is made of an advanced formulation of powerful and natural ingredients and is manufactured with innovative techniques that guarantee satisfying results. Versa is made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that is naturally found in the body, which reduces the risk of rejection or reaction to the filler’s ingredients after treatment. The main purpose of Versa is to revitalize and treat wrinkles and creases on the face to result in a smooth, younger-looking aesthetic. It can also be used to volumize the lips for a subtle, yet noticeable enhancement.
Versa is lauded for its advanced technology and formula, which has increased in popularity significantly.
Its particles are uniquely constructed to provide an ideal balance between volume and smoothness. Additionally, Versa’s particle composition is created to be gracefully formed and accepted into the body so that it can last longer than many dermal fillers, leaving you satisfied with your results for years to come.
Versa also adds a premium HA gel that results in less swelling for our patients. Many other types of dermal filler treatments result in more than 24% more swelling compared to Versa, which allows for improved recovery time, and allows our patients to return to their lives and daily routines almost immediately after the treatment. Every batch of Versa is inspected and tested on an individual basis and ensures safety for all of our patients.

Versa and the other dermal fillers we offer in our line of injectables are effective for treating most areas of the face, which include:
Under Eyes – sunken areas under the eyes are one of the most evident signs of aging. Versa can treat this area by adding volume and eliminate these signs of aging.
Frown Lines – Versa can treat deep creases between the eyebrows, which can give an angry or unhappy appearance. Versa will treat this area on a long-term and effective basis.
Cheeks – Versa can address the uneven look that appears in cheeks with age by creating a fuller, youthful look.
Vertical Lip Lines – caused by the natural structure of the face, Versa can treat this common sign of aging and provide a smoother look.
Smile Lines – One of the most commonly treated areas for Versa. Also known as “smile lines,” these lines can worsen the older a person gets. Versa has proven to be effective and successful in this area of the face.
Marionette Lines – These creases along the mouth can be caused by frowning and can be easily eliminated by Versa treatment.
Chin – Versa can smooth away creases and indentations such as chin dimples and a cleft chin.
One of the main reasons Versa is an excellent treatment is the speedy recovery, no downtime, and its well-known safety record. However, for Versa to be performed in its ideal fashion, patients must be examined and consulted on an individual basis. Some of the following descriptions can determine an ideal candidate:
- Patients who are over the age of 22
- In good overall health
- Have no history of bleeding disorders, or aren’t undergoing anticoagulant or antiplatelet therapy
- Have no allergies to any ingredients in Versa
- Maintain realistic expectations
If patients aren’t seen as an ideal candidate for one particular filler, Dr. Reed will help them explore other treatments that better suit their goals and needs.
How Many Doses Do I Need?
During your consultation, you will be able to consult with Dr. Reed about your aesthetic goals and expectations with the Versa procedure. Together, you’ll discuss a treatment plan that is right for you. He will then determine your candidacy by taking a test of your skin to see if you may have any allergic reactions or underlying skin conditions. He will then customize a treatment plan that best suits your needs to make sure that you meet your goals, and ensure that they are met safely and effectively.
Before Your Treatment
It is important to arrive at your procedure with a clean and fresh face. Male patients are advised to shave, and female patients are advised to avoid any makeup on the day of your treatment. Additionally, patients are advised to stop smoking and avoid any blood thinning medications for a couple of weeks before the procedure. It is also recommended to eat a low salt diet a couple of days before the procedure, which can ease swelling and bruising.
The Treatment Process
Once you arrive at our state-of-the-art facility, Dr. Reed will apply a numbing cream to the treatment area to help reduce any discomfort. The Versa formula will then be injected into your desired area that was discussed in your consultation. The injection is made with an ultra-thin needle and should take no longer than 15 minutes. Once the procedure is over, the patient may return to their normal life with no downtime necessary.
Due to Versa’s modern approach, downtime should be minimal. Swelling may occur but should dissipate within a couple of days. After the procedure, Dr. Reed will apply either ice or a cold compress to provide immediate comfort and help with swelling and bruising.
Versa is a minimally-invasive procedure that should have patients back to their lives in no time. Our office will schedule a follow-up appointment to track your recovery progress. Feel free to contact us anytime to assist you.
Patients who receive Versa treatments report consistent improvement of the appearance of treated areas and overall high satisfaction with their experience.
Immediately after the procedure, the patient will notice instant improvement, but final results might only become obvious once bruising and swelling completely disappears after a few days.
Versa treatment lasts longer than many other dermal fillers. This new treatment has longer-lasting results due to the premium quality hyaluronic acid which has a higher molecular weight to provide these long-term results.
