The new name for Oxford & Leamington Facial Aesthetics
Revanesse at Rosie Cooper Aesthetics
While we have been around a long time at Rosie Cooper Aesthetics (over 15 years), aesthetic medicine is a fast moving and ever-changing discipline and we are always on the lookout for medical and technological advances, to help us offer our patients the safest non-invasive treatments with the best and longest lasting results.
We have seen a lot of products come and go over the years and have always been very selective when choosing which dermal filler products to offer to our patients. We only choose injectable products which meet the highest safety standards, have the highest quality ingredients, and offer the most natural-looking and long-lasting results for our patients. We have been very impressed with the Revanesse range on all these fronts and decided to launch it at our Oxfordshire and Warwickshire clinics.
What is Revanesse?
Revanesse® is a line of cross-linked hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a sugar naturally produced by your body. As a water-binding molecule, it has the ability to hold 1000 x its weight in water. A large amount of the naturally occurring HA is found within the body and present within the skin.
As we age, the amount of HA within the skin decreases causing the skin to lose volume and develop fine lines and wrinkles. By injecting HA dermal fillers into the skin, you can restore volume loss for a more youthful appearance. The Revanesse® line of dermal fillers is made from the highest quality HA, and then modified to last 6-12 months once injected.
Revanesse was created by a Canadian company, Prollenium, which focuses exclusively on the research and manufacturing of dermal fillers. Revanesse dermal fillers have been big news in the US and Canada, as one of only five companies to receive US FDA approval. The product boasts a unique formula, high-quality ingredients, and innovative manufacturing technique.
The Revanesse dermal filler range is made of high-quality hyaluronic acid, a product which is found naturally in our bodies. It was launched in the UK in August 2021, led by world-renowned plastic surgeon and aesthetic trainer Dr Arthur Swift, who has been a master of injectable procedures since the 1990s. Less than a year later, Revanesse has been shortlisted for Product Innovation of the Year at the prestigious Aesthetics Awards 2022 in the UK.
What Makes Revanesse Unique?
Revanesse uses unique technology – Thixofix cross-linking technology – to create a cosmetic filler, which can be injected more easily, feels more natural, is easier to shape and won’t break down as quickly or dramatically as other cosmetic fillers.
The state-of-the-art dermal filler has spherical particles which give it its key selling points of safety and performance. The spherical particles in the product can help aesthetics practitioners to achieve smoother and more even results when administering dermal filler treatments.
The gel in Revanesse integrates smoothly into the skin tissue, thanks to the particle shape and low levels of modification, which can reduce immune responses and inflammation such as swelling post-treatment.
The spherical shape is designed to be accepted by the body and provide smooth, beautiful results that perform throughout the lifecycle of the skin.
Which Revanesse Product is Right for me?
We have chosen to use the Revanesse dermal fillers range in our Oxfordshire and Warwickshire clinics because it gives us the choice of four different products each with different sphere sizes, which we can use to address multiple indications as part of our clients’ individual treatment plans.
1. REVANESSE KISS
A dermal filler product specifically designed for lip enhancement and to treat lines around the mouth
2. REVANESSE ULTRA
Offers a moderate lift capacity to fill and lift in the mid-to-deep dermis.
For lips, nasolabial folds, marionette lines and temples.
3. REVANESSE CONTOUR
Offers a moderate/ high lift capacity to lift and volumise areas such as cheeks, chin, jawline and temples.
4. REVANESSE SHAPE
Offers a very high lift capacity to volumise areas such as cheeks, chin and jawline.
How Does Revanesse Compare to other Dermal Fillers?
Studies have shown that Revanesse has a superior performance in terms of durability, consistency and ability to be easily moulded, compared to a number of other other cosmetic fillers. Revanesse does not break down as quickly as some other products such as Juvederm; so, the product and results created with it will be longer lasting (around 6-9 months on average). The fact that Revanesse can be more easily moulded by the injector helps the practitioner to create more natural-looking results and the product may feel more natural to the patient as well. We also see some reduced side effects with Revanesse, such as reduced swelling post-procedure when compared with other dermal fillers.
Are Revanesse Dermal Fillers Safe?
The Revanesse line of cosmetic fillers have been meticulously tested and proven to be safe and effective. The line of fillers is free of animal products, which greatly reduces the risk of an allergic reaction. Revanesse products are biocompatible (non-harmful and likely to be accepted by the body) and biodegradable, so that they are naturally metabolised and broken down in the body over time. They are manufactured in Canada in a state-of-the-art facility. Each stage of the manufacturing process is tightly controlled, and extensive tests are carried out against the strictest safety standards. Every syringe produced is inspected to ensure that it is safe, biocompatible, and effective.
What are the Side Effects of Revanesse?
As with all injectable procedures and dermal filler products, normal side effects can include localised bruising and/or swelling. These are a normal biological response and part of the healing process. Even if you have had injectable treatments before without such side effects it does not mean you won’t experience such side effects in future treatments with the same or other products. When you choose to have a dermal filler procedure at Rosie Cooper Aesthetics, we will make sure you have all the pre-care and aftercare advice you need to help minimise any side effects or ‘downtime’ post-treatment.
