What is REVOLAX™ SUB-Q with Lidocaine?
Revolax Sub-Q with Lidocaine is a transparent and biodegradable non-animal-based dermal filler that is composed of 24mg/mL of cross-linked hyaluronic acid gel that has been integrated with 0.3% lidocaine. The hyaluronic acid molecules are manufactured from bacterial fermentation and purified to eliminate any bacterial endotoxins that can induce allergic reactions. The molecules are then reticulated with one another using 1,4-butanediol diglycidyl ether (BDDE), a widely used chemical cross-linking agent. The resulting gel is then cross-linked, monophasic, and polydensified with a regular and dense patterned gel lattice. The resulting viscoelastic and durable gel is ideal for correcting deep-sized and extremely severe wrinkles, such as the nasolabial folds and for augmenting the nose, cheeks, and chin.
Why do doctors use REVOLAX™ SUB-Q with Lidocaine?
Revolax with Lidocaine range is composed of three different fillers: Revolax Fine, Revolax Deep, and Revolax Sub-Q with Lidocaine. Though these 3 fillers have the same concentrations of hyaluronic acid and lidocaine, they are processed to have varying levels of viscosity, so as to target different dermal indications. Revolax Sub-Q with Lidocaine is specially designed to volumize and soften the appearance of deep-sized and extremely severe wrinkles, such as the nasolabial folds. Besides that, its advanced ability to mold and maintain structure makes it perfect for augmenting the shape of the nose, cheeks, and chin.
How does REVOLAX™ SUB-Q with Lidocaine work?
Revolax Sub-Q with Lidocaine is composed of 24mg/mL of cross-linked hyaluronic acid gel that is processed to be monophasic and polydensified. Compared to other brands of hyaluronic acid-based filler, this aesthetic implant, with its lattice structure, is regular and dense patterned. Hence, the filler can be injected easily and consistently with less extrusion force, which is very comfortable for patients and physicians alike. Besides that, the dense lattice structure of the gel also contributes to the longevity of the implant. When this filler is administered, the treated areas will be instantly plumped with significant amounts of volume for a harmonized appearance.
