With the highest concentrations of both cross-linked and non-cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid and a unique ingredient called Sephadex, the Revanesse family of dermal fillers – Revanesse, Revanesse Ultra and ReDexis – are considered the most advanced on the market today, representing a new generation of dermal gel fillers that now have the ability to offer full, comprehensive facial enhancement. A long-lasting, smooth injectible that erases fine lines and wrinkles, smoothes deep folds, and gives lips a natural, fuller look, the Revanesse family of dermal fillers, due to both their longevity and unique properties, are now being used in innovative ways to contour the cheeks, chin and jaw line, effectively giving patients complete natural-looking facial rejuvenation without traditional surgery. "The Revanesse family of fillers are easy to inject and ideal for volumetric filling and facial contour enhancement, especially as they have more longevity than other injectibles previously made available," explains Dr. Lisa Kellett, prominent cosmetic dermatologist and clinical director of DLK On Avenue. Dr. Wayne Carey, esteemed Montreal cosmetic dermatologist, adds, “I’ve been using Revanesse Ultra in the upper cheek area for sculpting and lifting the face and with the combination of this innovative product and my new injection technique, we’re seeing remarkable results.” Revanesse and Revanesse Ultra are the only dermal fillers that hydrate and revitalize the skin due to the large concentration of both cross-linked and non-cross linked Hyaluronic Acid in the products. As Hyaluronic Acid binds additional moisture to the skin’s matrix versus simply “filling the skin”, the result is a more natural and longer-lasting treatment. Revanesse is also the only Hyaluronic Acid dermal filler that uses a pliable smooth gel /2 that flows easily into the skin, offering physicians greater precision to create a natural look and feel. These unique qualities in Revanesse Ultra provide optimal results that last up to 12 months with a single treatment in the majority of patients. According to Dr. Martie Gidon, cosmetic dermatologist, “Revanesse is an easy to inject dermal filler that gives a very soft, natural look. Patients experience little downtime and are extremely pleased with the results.” Montreal plastic surgeon Gaston Schwarz adds, "I really like the ease in which the product injects, leaving a natural and smooth lip enhancement without bruising and swelling. It is also important to me that Prollenium is a Canadian company.” ReDexis, the most viscous injectible in the Revanesse family, stimulates a process called Collegenesis, unique among dermal fillers. It contains a substance called Sephadex (cross-linked sugar molecules) that are magnetically charged to attract collagen and elastin to the implant site. This stimulates new tissue, which in turn helps the body naturally bulk up the area treated. Results with this filler can last up to 18 months. The company plans to soon introduce another product to the line with an increased amount of Sephadex that can last up to two years. With their high degree of biocompatibility, a treatment with Revanesse results in minimal bruising or swelling. According to Dr. Andres Gantous, Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto’s Department of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, “I have noticed decreased swelling and bruising post-injection compared with injections of other products. The cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid allows a precise injection for contouring lips and nasolabial folds without the need for overcorrection. I’m excited to continue using this new family of fillers that are longer-lasting and allow me greater versatility in treating my patients.” Revanesse is also the first choice of cosmetic plastic surgeon Dr. Mohammed Elahi at the Woodbridge Cosmetic Hospital, the largest private hospital in Ontario founded by Canadian plastic surgery pioneer Dr. Lloyd Carlsen. “Due to their longevity, facial sculpting and anti-aging properties, the Revanesse family of dermal fillers clearly satisfies our patients demand for a safe, long-lasting and non-invasive treatment that can instantaneously refresh, rejuvenate and refine the entire facial area.” The Revanesse family of dermal fillers should only be injected by qualified health care practitioners.
