Get a Filler That Lasts Longer
At CaTara Medical Spa in Algonquin, we are pleased to offer Versa Filler by Revanesse. This newer treatment was designed as a treatment to be used in the cheeks, lips, and nasolabial folds. Made up of hyaluronic acid, which is synthesized naturally in the body, this product carries little chance of the body rejecting it.
Studies have shown that Versa causes swelling at a significantly lower rate than other dermal fillers. It also boasts faster results that start becoming apparent immediately after a treatment session. This treatment is a great way to fight the effects of time, with results that last longer than most other filler options.
