Revolax Fine with Lidocaine is a relatively new dermal filler that is made of highly pure and non-animal-based hyaluronic acid gel that is completely biodegradable. This clear injectable implant is designed by Across, a South Korean pharmaceutical company that was established in 2009. Since its inception, Across has developed various medical devices, medical instruments, medications, and health foods. Revolax, one of its renowned ranges of injectable implants, is composed of 3 different types of fillers—Revolax Fine, Revolax Deep, and Revolax Sub-Q—to correct various dermal problems. Revolax Fine is made of 24mg/mL of cross-linked hyaluronic acid gel that is integrated with 0.3% lidocaine to suppress pain during injection session. As the name suggests, Revolax Fine with Lidocaine is ideal for erasing fine and superficial wrinkles such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, and neck wrinkles. Each box of Revolax Fine comes with one prefilled syringe that contains 1.1mL of this solution, 2 sterilized and disposable 30G needles, and a package insert. This sterilized medical device has a shelf life of 24 months if it is stored in a safe place where the temperature is between 2 to 25℃.
WHAT IS IT USED FOR?
Though all the Revolax fillers that are integrated with lidocaine contain the same concentration of hyaluronic acid, Revolax Fine with Lidocaine is specially designed to correct the following types of superficial wrinkles:
- Crow’s feet, which are superficial lines radiating from the outer corner of the eye;
- Forehead lines, which are small horizontal lines on the forehead;
- Neck wrinkles, which are wrinkles on the neck that are caused by skin sagginess;
- Perioral wrinkles, which are vertical lines surrounding the lip borders).
This long-lasting wrinkle filler makes treated areas look healthier, smoother, and plumper.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Superficial wrinkles, such as crow’s feet and forehead lines, develop due to ageing. Ageing is an uncontrollable process whose onset and severity of effects are predetermined by one’s genetics. Ageing results in the slowing down of the rate of tissue renewal and repair; these developments, in turn, make the skin lose its elasticity and cause dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles that happen during facial movements) to become permanently etched, effectively making them static wrinkles. Most of the time, the appearance of these superficial lines can be exacerbated by external ageing factors, such as long-term UV ray exposure, smoking, and pollution. If left uncorrected, these fine lines can deepen into severe facial creases that may affect one’s appearance and self-esteem.
Revolax Fine with Lidocaine is composed of hyaluronic acid molecules that are derived from the biofermentation of Streptococcus zooepidemicus cultures and do not contain any traces of animal proteins. The highly purified hyaluronic acid molecules are then cross-linked with each other to form a monophasic filler gel with a uniformly dense mesh structure. This unique structure allows the gel to be delivered via smooth and consistent injections throughout the treatment session. Once injected into the superficial dermis layer, the filler instantly erases dermal lines.
HOW TO INJECT IT
Aesthetic treatments done using Revolax Fine with Lidocaine must be regarded as medical procedures; therefore, patients’ medical information must be reviewed thoroughly before the injection process to ensure that they are not allergic to any of components present in the filler. Afterwards, a facial assessment must be done, and the degree of correction needed should be discussed as well. Once the treatment goals have been agreed upon and the potential side effects are explained to the patients, physicians can commence the session by cleaning and sanitizing the proposed treatment area(s). Revolax Fine with Lidocaine can then be administered into areas with fine wrinkles via superficial dermal injections.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
While non-crosslinked hyaluronic acid has superior biocompatibility and hydrophilicity, it is metabolised rather quickly by the surrounding tissues. Since Revolax Fine with Lidocaine is made of cross-linked hyaluronic acid filler, the cohesive, smooth, and uniform filler gel is able to resist premature degradation for about 12 to 18 months before being resorbed into the nearby tissues. This long duration of action is made possible by the dense, cross-linked mesh structure of the gel, which protects the filler against enzymatic decomposition and free radical damage. The exact residence time of the filler varies on an individual basis.
IS IT SAFE?
Yes, Revolax Fine with Lidocaine is a very safe product. It does not contain any potentially dangerous contaminants as made evident by its European Medical CE certification. This product’s hyaluronic acid molecules are filtered to ensure that only 1.2IU/mL of endotoxin and BDDE remain in the filler gel, making these substances effectively undetectable. There is a very low risk of immunogenic and/or rejection reactions by the body with this ultra-pure gel. That being said, this filler is contraindicated in the following groups of patients due to unestablished safety profiles:
- Patients with a known hypersensitivity to hyaluronic acid and/or lidocaine;
- Patients with a tendency to develop hypertrophic scarring (e.g. keloids);
- Patients who are have dermal disorders (e.g. acne, inflammations, infections, etc.);
- Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Revolax Fine with Lidocaine must also not be used alongside other dermal treatments like dermabrasion, laser therapy, and chemical peeling treatments.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS?
Immediately after a treatment session, patients may display injection site reactions, such as redness, swelling, and bruising. These inflammatory reactions are usually mild in nature and short-lived. Refer to the package insert for a detailed list of side effects. Patients must be educated on all potential adverse reactions so that they can get swift medical attention if required.
WHAT IS IT MADE OF?
Revolax Fine with Lidocaine is a completely biodegradable and synthetic dermal filler that is made of highly pure hyaluronic acid. It contains 24mg/mL of cross-linked hyaluronic acid that is incorporated with 0.3% lidocaine so that patients remain comfortable and free from pain during treatment sessions.
Warning! The product is intended solely for professional use in a medical environment and under professional supervision. The product is supplied to medical professionals who specialize in aesthetic medicine (plastic surgery, facial treatments) and work under individual medical licenses as aestheticians or in dedicated clinics. Unprofessional use by individuals without a medical background may lead to severe adverse effects and health harm.
