Today we’re answering all your questions about Versa lip filler longevity, optimal maintenance schedules, and how to make sure your lips look lusciously natural. Read on for insider tips from aesthetic experts.

What is Versa?

Versa is a dermal filler product made by Revanesse to add volume and fullness to the lips and smooth away wrinkles around the mouth. It contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps hydrate and plump the skin.

The hyaluronic acid in Versa attracts and binds water molecules to create that youthful volume. The results are immediate yet subtle lip enhancement with little to no downtime. Versa is FDA-approved and considered safe and effective for lip augmentation.

Benefits of Choosing Versa Lip Filler

Versa lip filler offers many advantages that make it a top choice for subtle, natural-looking lip enhancement, such as:

  • Little to no swelling after the procedure
  • Adds lost volume back into the lips
  • Comfortable for both the injector and patient
  • Produces immediate yet natural-looking results
  • Causes less swelling compared to other fillers
  • Easy to shape the lips during injection
  • Can treat other facial areas beyond just the lips
  • Helps reverse early signs of aging
  • Allows for very subtle and natural lip enhancement
  • Smoothes lines instantly while plumping up lips

How Long Do the Results of Versa Lip Filler Last?

The results of Versa lip filler can last between three to six months on average. However, some patients may experience results lasting up to 12 months or more. The filler is biocompatible and biodegradable, meaning your body will absorb it naturally as it breaks down.

The longevity of the results can be influenced by factors such as your individual body, the area treated, and the dosage injected. To maintain the results, you can safely schedule repeat treatments over time.

Some key points about the duration of Versa lip filler:

  • Results can be seen within a few days, with final results visible 2-4 weeks after the treatment.
  • One treatment session and dosage is usually needed to volumize the lips.
  • Versa lip filler has a low risk of post-treatment swelling.
  • It’s suitable for people looking to reverse signs of aging or enhance their natural features.

How To Make Versa Lip Filler Last Longer

While individual results may vary, there are some tips to help extend and maintain the effects of Versa lip filler:

  1. Stay Hydrated

    Drink plenty of water daily – hydrated skin helps filler stay intact longer in the lips. Use a hydrating lip balm or moisturizer multiple times per day.
  1. Avoid Damaging Habits

    Smoking and excessive sun exposure can degrade hyaluronic acid fillers quicker. Always apply SPF 30 or higher to your lips before sun exposure. Quit smoking if possible.
  1. Get Repeat Injections

    Most patients need repeat filler injections every 6-9 months to maintain lip fullness. The filler gradually dissipates over time. Follow-up appointments can prolong your results.
  1. Gently Massage Treatment Areas

    Lightly massaging your lips and treatment areas helps the filler evenly integrate into the tissues and prevents lumps or bumps. Avoid massaging too aggressively.
  1. Let Swelling Subside

    It can take 1-2 weeks for swelling to completely resolve. Do not judge your final results until swelling has diminished. The lips may look uneven or lumpy at first.
  1. Use Conservative Amounts

    Sticking to more subtle amounts of filler rather than over-filling tends to lead to longer-lasting results. Take a gradual approach for natural-looking lip enhancement.
  1. Consult an Experienced Provider

    See an injector experienced in lip augmentation for optimal placement and technique. This gives longer-lasting and symmetrical outcomes.

How Often Should You Get Touch-Up Injections to Refresh Versa Lip Filler?

Most patients need refreshing touch-up injections of Versa lip filler every 6 to 9 months. After this initial time period, you may notice the lip volume decrease as the hyaluronic acid gel gradually breaks down in the body.

Some signs it may be time for a touch-up include if your lips no longer appear as plump or lifted as before. The 6 month mark is a general guideline for when refreshers may be needed.

The touch-up or refreshing session is quick and only requires small amounts of filler to restore your lip volume and contour. It takes less time and product than the initial treatment.

Schedule your Versa lip filler touch-up today for refreshed, plump lips that turn heads.

If your lips have lost volume or you want to enhance your natural shape, Versa may be a great option. Treatment takes just minutes and you’ll see an immediate improvement. While individual results vary, you can expect Versa lip filler effects to last about 6 months before follow-up treatments are needed.

Can I dissolve Versa lip filler if I don’t like the results?

Hyaluronidase injections can safely dissolve Versa lip filler over time if results are too dramatic or uneven. Multiple treatments may be needed depending on filler amount used. Speak to your provider about the dissolution process.

What side effects or risks are associated with Versa lip filler?

Potential side effects of Versa lip filler are generally mild and temporary. These may include temporary swelling, bruising, redness, and tenderness at the injection sites. More serious risks like infection or allergic reaction are very rare. 

Will the results of Versa lip filler look fake or unnatural?

When administered by an experienced injector, Versa results should look subtle and natural—not exaggerated. The filler adds volume to smooth lines and restores lost plumpness. The aim is beautiful enhancement, not an artificial or duck-lip look.

How long does the procedure take to augment lips with Versa filler?

Versa lip filler procedures are quick, taking around 15-30 minutes depending on the amount of product used. You can expect to be in and out of your appointment quite fast. Some mild swelling may be present for a day or two.

Can Versa lip injections be combined with other treatments?

Yes, Versa lip augmentation can be combined with other injections or procedures like Botox or lip lifts for enhanced rejuvenation. Discuss customized treatment plans with your provider. Combination therapies often yield optimal aesthetic results.

What does the treatment for Versa lip filler feel like?

Most patients report Versa lip injections have minimal discomfort. A topical numbing agent is first applied to maximize comfort. The injections feel like tiny pinpricks followed by some pressure as the filler is injected. Any discomfort felt is temporary.
