Duration of effect

This depends upon the degree of correction required, your age and lifestyle as well as the correct placement of the product by a practitioner.

The manufacturers claim that the various products will last on average 6 months for Revanesse,  6 - 9 months for Revanesse Lips, 9 - 12 months for Revanesse Ultra, 18 months for Redexis and up to 42 months for Redexis Ultra.


Reported side effects

Expect erythema (redness), swelling, pain, itching, discolouration or tenderness at the injection site. This typically resolves spontaneously, within one or two days after treatment, and up to a week after injection into the lips.

In rare cases, glabellar necrosis, abscess formation, granulomas and hypersensitivity have all been reported with injections of hyaluronic acid products.


Clinical Data

The following clinical trial was conducted:

A multicentre, double-blind, randomized prospective comparative evaluation of the efficacy and safety of Revanesse® Ultra versus Restylane® in patients undergoing cutaneous correction of nasolabial folds.

Study Investigators: Dr. Melvin Elson, Dr. Sheldon Pollack, Dr. Sylvia Garnis-Jones, Dr. Lisa Kellet

One hundred forty-two (142) patients had informed consent obtained for inclusion into the study, of which 130 patients were injected with both Revanesse® Ultra and Control. Of the 130 patients receiving treatment, all patients were included in safety analysis. The number of patients that completed the study (N=118) were all included in the primary efficacy analysis. The effectiveness analysis is based on N = 118 patients for the 6 month period. The number of patients missing for followups was very limited (9%) and there was no affect on the study results or the conclusions drawn from those study results.

Effectiveness
Revanesse® Ultra met the primary effectiveness endpoint of equivalency when compared to Control using the WSRS after 6 months.
Revanesse® Ultra also met all the secondary endpoints determining that the efficacy of Revanesse® Ultra is comparable to Control using both the Investigator and Patient GAIS as well as Patient WSRS as the measurement tools.
Each of the three blinded Investigators independently rated Revanesse® Ultra in the same manner that resulted in the conclusions. Furthermore, the single blinded Investigator assessed efficacy using photographic based WSRS and GAIS, which also showed that Revanesse® Ultra is equivalent to Control at 6 months. The amount of Revanesse® Ultra injected was similar to Control.

Safety
The clinical trial established Revanesse® Ultra as being a safe device for soft tissue augmentation for the treatment of NLFs. The adverse events that were reported were not unexpected with most being mild in nature, short induration and not requiring treatment.

It is important to note that there were no reports of granulomas, erosion, necrosis, infection or hematomas during the course of the study.


Costs

This will depend on the practitioner and the type and number of syringes used from the product range. Prices range from £180 to £225 per syringe depending on the particular product.
