RESTYLANE®, VERSA™, and RADIESSE®
About Dermal Fillers, Facial Fillers, and Wrinkle Injections
The application of any facial filler is as much an art as it is science. Our practitioners have the skill and experience to make the results look natural and symmetric. The choice of dermal filler also depends on the desired correction and time frame for optimal results. They all contain lidocaine to help minimize discomfort during treatment.
Before & After
Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as RESTYLANE® AND VERSA™ can smooth away wrinkles instantly around the mouth, nose, jawline and cheek area. It also works beautifully as a lip filler for plumping the lips and smoothing lines around the mouth and to augment the bridge of the nose, as well as earlobes that have lost volume over time.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that gives soft tissue its bulk and “feel”. It is extracted and purified from biologic sources. All of the products are gradually reabsorbed, with a cosmetic result that can last up to a year, some nearly 2 years.

The Restylane® family of products includes Restylane®, Restylane® Lyft, Restylane® Silk, Restylane® Refyne, and Restylane® Defyne. These dermal fillers are for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane® and Restylane-L® are also indicated for injection into the lips.
Can Restylane cause blindness?
If they are injected incorrectly near the eye, hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane have caused blindness. For this reason, it is important to only receive fillers from a trusted, experienced, and educated professional.
Can you mix Juvederm and Restylane?
Juvederm and Restylane are similar but have slightly varying results in different areas of the face. Patients can choose to have a combination of Juvederm and Restylane injections to achieve their best possible results.
Can Restylane last for years?
Restylane lasts for 18 months at most. On average, patients achieve Restylane results that last for 6-12 months.
Do Restylane bumps go away?
Small bumps and swelling may result as temporary side effects after Restylane injections. These bumps should disappear within the first few weeks of receiving your injections.
Can you drink after Restylane?
Its best to avoid alcohol at least two days before receiving Restylane injections. Alcohol acts as a blood thinner, so drinking alcohol can cause inflammation and bruising. A few hours after treatment is fine to have a drink.
Does Restylane help dark circles?
Yes. Dark circles under the eyes are often caused by sagging skin or a hollow eye area. Restylane can be used to fill up that area and reduce the appearance of dark circles.
Although Versa™ is the newest Hyaluronic Acid (HA) on the US market, it is tried and tested, with over 1 million syringes used worldwide since 2002. The Versa™ particles are uniquely spherical and uniform, providing the perfect balance between smoothness and volume. Studies have shown that Versa™ has less swelling than some of the competitors and is equally long lasting.
What is Versa?
Versa is a relatively new hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler used to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles and add volume to nearly any area of the face.
Is Versa better than Juvederm?
Although the two hyaluronic acid fillers are very similar in many ways, Versa’s enhanced formula tends to last longer and results in significantly less post-injection swelling compared to Juvederm.
How much does Versa cost?
The amount your treatment with Revanesse Versa will cost depends on how many syringes are needed to achieve the desired results. The best way to get a price estimate is to schedule a free consultation with one of our advanced injectors.
What areas does Versa treat?
Versa injections create beautifully natural results when used around the mouth, in the cheeks, and even for lip augmentation.
How long is a Versa treatment?
The length of your appointment varies by treatment type and amount needed, but most patients are in and out for Versa within 30-60 minutes.

Radiesse® Dermal Filler
Radiesse® is a dermal filler that is is FDA approved for cheek augmentation and also used to correct volume loss in the back of the hands. Radiesse is placed beneath the skin in the hands raising the skin level so that tendons, joints and veins lose their prominence. It provides instant and durable long lasting results.
Can I exercise after Radiesse injections?
Its best to avoid exercise for about 24 hours after your Radiesse injections. This helps to avoid any increased blood flow to your face, which contributes to swelling.
Can you use Radiesse and Juvederm together?
Radiesse and Juvederm have different formulas, consistencies, and purposes. They can be used in combination to treat different areas for the same patient for a completely rejuvenated look.
Can I wear makeup after Radiesse?
Its often advised that you avoid wearing makeup after your Radiesse appointment to avoid infection, but you can carefully apply makeup after receiving injections if you choose.
Does Radiesse build collagen?
Radiesse is designed to stimulate new collagen production, which allows patients to enjoy long-lasting results.
Can you lay down after Radiesse?
If possible, you should keep your head elevated for 24 hours after receiving Radiesse injections. This includes sleeping with your head propped up.
What is Hypderdilute Radiesse?
Hyperdilute Radiesse is the original Radiesse formula that has been oversaturated with saline and lidocaine to increase its spread and effectiveness for larger areas of the skin.
How long does hyperdilute Radiesse last?
Depending on the amount and location in which the formula is injected, hyperdilute Radiesse can last up to 9 months, although on average it only lasts around 6 or 7.
Does hyperdilute Radiesse work?
Hyperdilute Radiesse works just like Radiesse does, by stimulating collagen and elastin in the area treated. However, diluted Radiesse can be more effective in treating larger areas as needed.
How long does it take for Radiesse to soften?
With hyperdilute Radiesse, you shouldn’t feel too much firmness in the treated areas, although it’s known that Radiesse itself can feel firm for up to two weeks depending on the treatment area.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is there downtime after dermal fillers?
There is no requirement to adjust your activity level after filler treatments, or to otherwise rest and recover. You should still expect some minor redness and swelling at your injection sites, but this is generally resolved within a day or so.
How long does bruising last after dermal fillers?
This can depend on whether your bruise easily or not. In general, you should give yourself around two weeks for bruising to completely go away, meaning you should plan accordingly if you have an upcoming event.
What if I do not like my results from dermal fillers?
If you don’t like your results from a hyaluronic acid dermal filler (like Versa or Restylane), hyaluronidase can be injected to dissolve the filler material. This process does not always have the best results, though, so it’s important to do your research on fillers, injectors, and what results you can expect before you go through with filler treatments.
