REVANESSE® VERSA™ IN NEW ORLEANS
As we age, our faces naturally lose volume as fat stores become depleted and collagen production diminishes. Wrinkles and creases will start to appear as the first signs of early aging. No matter how expensive they may be, topical lotions and creams do little to restore the lost collagen supply, replenish moisture, or tighten lax skin.
Fortunately, the New Orleans Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery can reduce or reverse some of the signs of aging through innovative, non-surgical techniques and injectable treatments, including Revanesse® Versa™. Dr. Parker Velargo and Dr. Russell Hendrick can incorporate Versa™, an injectable dermal filler, into a patient’s facial rejuvenation treatment to smooth fine lines and soften deep wrinkles, restore areas of age-related volume loss, and tighten tissues. With results that can last up to six months, Revanesse® Versa™ can take years off your appearance without the downtime required by surgery.
Revanesse® Versa™ can:
- Smooth deep creases, like frown lines and nasolabial folds
- Decrease fine facial lines
- Increase volume along cheeks and under eyes
- Firm lax tissues, plump the lips, and ease lip lines
- Restore symmetry and natural contours to facial features
WHAT IS REVANESSE® VERSA™?
Revanesse® Versa™ is an advanced soft tissue filler created from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in our bodies. The product’s high molecular weight ensures smooth, consistent results, retaining vital moisture in the areas treated for long-lasting results.
The filler is an outstanding choice for eliminating fine facial lines and deeper creases, including the nasolabial folds, around the eyes and mouth, and the glabella or frown lines between the brows. In addition, Revanesse® Versa™ offers several advantages over more invasive techniques, with each treatment taking only a few minutes and providing immediate results.
WHAT MAKES REVANESSE® VERSA™ DIFFERENT?
Revanesse® Versa™ is a dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid that the New Orleans Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery experts can inject into your skin to rectify fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, the proprietary formula adds volume and restores facial hydration, helping rejuvenate your appearance, enhancing your youthful looks.
Revanesse® Versa™ injections are unique because the filler particles within the formula are spherical and uniform in shape, helping create the perfect balance between smoothness and volume. In addition, the formula’s high viscosity makes it possible to inject with a fine needle, resulting in minimal adverse effects.

You can receive Versa™ injections at the New Orleans Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery early in the day and return to your typical activities by lunchtime. In addition, since the injections are minimally invasive, there is no need to plan any downtime to recover. Patients also choose Versa™ injections because they are FDA-approved, with superior ingredients that must pass rigorous testing. As a result, they provide outstanding results for longer than other products designed for the same purposes.
WHAT ARE THE RISKS OR SIDE EFFECTS OF REVANESSE® VERSA™?
Side-effects from Revanesse® Versa™ include pinpoint bleeding, redness, tenderness, itching, and mild bruising. Most side-effects are short-lived and will generally resolve over the first day or two following treatment.
The unique makeup of Revanesse® Versa™ means there is little chance for swelling. As a result, more severe risks – including allergic reaction, infection, or nerve damage – are rare.
HOW LONG DOES REVANESSE® VERSA™ LAST?
As a long-lasting soft tissue filler, Revanesse® Versa™ offers the benefits of a single treatment that can last up to six months. Over time, you can safely schedule repeat treatments to extend and maintain your results.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING REVANESSE® VERSA™ INJECTIONS?
Each Revanesse® Versa™ session takes less than an hour in one of our comfortable and private treatment rooms at the New Orleans Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Velargo or Dr. Hendrick will ensure the treatment plan matches your aesthetic goals. Generally, it only takes one session of Revanesse® Versa™ to achieve your desired results.
We take every precaution to ensure a comfortable patient experience, including applying a topical or local anesthetic to ensure a painless treatment. After the injection session, you can return to your regular routine without restricting your typical activities. However, it’s best to put off any strenuous exercise for 24 to 48 hours.
You can continue to enjoy their enhanced appearance for a full six months before needing to schedule a maintenance treatment.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS FROM MY REVANESSE® VERSA™ SESSION?
You can look forward to seeing the results from receiving Revanesse® Versa™ immediately after the injection session. Since it consists of hyaluronic acid, the filler will continue to draw moisture from surrounding tissues and augment your natural collagen production, thus ensuring long-lasting results

During a confidential consultation appointment, Dr. Velargo or Dr. Hendrick will also review your medical history to make sure the treatment with Revanesse® Versa™ is right for you.
Dr. Velargo and Dr. Hendrick will take every precaution to help you avoid complications from Versa™ injections.
There are slight risks involved where some patients experience bleeding or bruising at injection sites. However, bleeding is typically minimal and resolves itself within minutes. Likewise, bruising and swelling should clear within a week. Other risks also include unlikely acne-like eruptions, skin sensitivity, and skin infection. Our professional staff will closely monitor you to help avoid or treat any of these adverse reactions.
The primary factor that makes Versa™ different than other HA fillers, like Juvéderm, is its nearly non-existent post-injection swelling. In clinical trials, Versa™ produced up to 24% less swelling than competing fillers. Injection specialists appreciate this quality because it makes volume correction more precise and balanced. As a result, they do not need to compensate for any skin swelling, especially in delicate areas like the undereye area.
An essential consideration for many patients is that Versa™ contains no animal products or byproducts. Versa™ is a biodegradable formula that your body breaks down naturally. Prollenium, the makers of Versa™, manufacture their product in small batches with very stringent quality standards.
Revanesse® Versa™ falls at a two on the pain scale of one to five, where one is the least painful. If you wish, you can request a topical or local anesthesia to make the procedure more comfortable, especially when treating the lips.
You may experience swelling, redness, pain, bruising, and tenderness at the injection site, but these effects are typically mild and generally last no more than a few days.
