As the skin begins to age, many people look into ways they can address the loosening skin of their faces and the lines and wrinkles that come along with it. At Nouveau MedSpa & Salon in Chubbuck, ID, we offer Versa treatments to help our clients reduce the appearance of wrinkles while maintaining a natural look.
Dermal Filler FAQs: What Is Versa Used For?
1. A Surgery-Free, Quick and Easy Wrinkle Treatment
Versa is a great option when it comes to correcting wrinkles and skin laxity, especially in mid and lower facial areas. It can smooth over some of these problem areas, and do so subtly. You’ll get results that enhance your natural, healthy glow, without looking artificial or overly obvious. The thought of facelift surgery can be a bit scary, and it’s a lot expensive. Opting for dermal injections instead is the way to go for many people.
Rather than having to take time off of work to recover from surgery, with dermal injections, you’ll generally need between 30 to 60 minutes from start to finish, depending on what you’d like done. You can make your appointment, receive your injections, and walk out to continue on with your day. That means that this kind of wrinkle treatment is non-disruptive to your busy schedule.
2. Nasolabial Folds
This particular dermal injection is especially well-suited for the treatment of nasolabial folds. Nasolabial folds start out from each side of the nose and travel down to the mouth in a curve. You can usually see your nasolabial lines when you smile or scowl. As the skin begins to age, they will start to deepen and settle permanently into the face.
Some clients with more severe folds feel as though it makes them look like they are wrinkling their nose. Using a filler like Versa on the skin underneath these folds will smooth them over and reduce their depth. This smoothing over effect helps your expression look more relaxed at rest.
3. Laugh and Other Mouth Lines
Lines that appear at the corner of the mouth heading downward are known as laugh lines. Laugh lines can sometimes be small, thin lines. In other cases, they can be deeper folds that extend down to the jawline. These lines at first show up when you smile or laugh, which is where they got their name. However, even when your face is neutral, permanent laugh lines can sometimes make the corners of your mouth dip downwards.
Whether the appearance of laugh lines is more like a fine line or a deeper wrinkle, this dermal filler option can help to release your smile. As it smooths over the laugh lines, it can also help your face look lighter. Laugh lines can exaggerate loose skin around the jawline, so as laugh lines reduce in severity, it can make the skin of your jaw look like it has slightly lifted.
4. Volume Restoration
Loss and redistribution of the face’s fat will naturally progress with age. When facial fat is lost, especially in our cheeks and throughout the jawline, it creates additional lines as the skin of the face sags a bit in response. This treatment can help re-fill some of the areas in which volume has been lost. This restores a youthful “fullness” to the face.
5. Superficial Lines of the Lower Face and Lips
Superficial lines can appear in various areas of the lower face. They can appear as small lines curving downward from the nose to the philtrum, verticle and horizontal lines around the mouth, and lines around and across the lips. The appearance of all of these lines can be improved with a dermal filler. Smoothing over these lines can help to free up your resting facial expression and create a youthful glow.
As the lines around the lips are treated, it can have the added benefit of making lips just a bit fuller. The lines that often run through our lips can make lips appear puckered, tense, or sunken in. Having these fine lines treated can improve these areas.
6. Subtle, Youthful Appearance
No one wants it to be obvious when they receive dermal injections. One of the appeals Versa brings to the table is the idea of working with the face to restore, not trying to make a new face altogether. Results from this injection are supposed to make your friends wonder if maybe you’ve gotten an extra couple hours of sleep, or maybe you have a new exfoliation secret you haven’t clued them in on.
By having the ability to reduce deeper wrinkles such as nasolabial folds and laugh lines, as well as the finer lines around the nose and mouth, this filler can have a smoothing-out effect across the face as a whole. Combine that with the ability to fill certain areas of the face, and you have a treatment that works for a wide range of issues.
