Revanesse and Revanesse Pure

What is Revanesse?

Revanesse is a bio-compatible product that is injected into the skin to effectively ‘fill-in’ a wrinkle or fold, making the patient look younger. There are permanent and semi-permanent fillers available, but the most trusted products are those that are temporary, and are absorbed harmlessly by the body over a matter of months or sometimes years.

How does Revanesse work?

Revanesse works by eliminating the wrinkle or fold in the face by raising the skin in that area, so that the wrinkle or fold is no longer visible. There are different products used to achieve this, but they all work by acting as a support structure to replenish the elasticity that is lost as we age. Of particular interest are hyaluronic acid based products HA is found in the joints and in the skin, it is the substance that makes skin look young and supple.

Hyaluronic acid based products are made from non-animal sources and because the HA is cross-linked, the body cannot break it down quickly and therefore it is a good material for augmenting the wrinkles and folds. The added bonus of HA fillers is that they draw water from the rest of the body to the augmentation site, making the skin look refreshed and younger looking.

What is Revanesse recovery period?

Revanesse is an injection under the skin so swelling, redness, and possible bruising are possible.

Expected Revannesse

The results are immediate and long lasting. For example, smokers lines and crows feet around the eyes can be smoothed away using Revanesse, and deep nasolabial folds can be completely smoothed out making a person look at least 10 years younger. Other procedures such as increasing the volume of the lips or defining the border of the lips can make them look more plump and sensual.

Revanesse products can be used to give augmentation where there was little or no volume such as in the cheeks, jowels or chin area. In addition these ‘contouring’ products can be used to define cheek bones giving results like you would achieve with a mini face-lift.

The Naturopathic Nardella Clinic of Calgary uses Revanesse with the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid available to patients. The Revanesse family of products leads the way in state-of-the-art use of hyaluronic acid.

Thanks to Revanesse innovation, HA can now be used as an optimum prevention and restorative treatment for aging skin. We can now optimally re-supply the skin with HA with a product called Revanesse Pure. This treatment does not target specific wrinkles, but aims to restore general elasticity and vitality to the skin. As we age, we produce less HA and this results in decreased skin hydration. By replacing the HA, we reverse the impacts of its gradual loss as we age by optimizing skin hydration, health, and appearance.
