Revolax Deep with Lidocaine is a biodegradable, non-animal based, and cross-linked hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has high viscoelasticity to correct the mid-to-deep dermal layer.

It should be injected in the deep dermis or subcutaneous tissue. It is the most popular of the Revolax product line.
Benefits this Product
This formulation of Revolax Deep comes premixed with 0.3% lidocaine to ensure patient comfort during the injection process. Patients that experience less discomfort are more likely to be adherent to the treatment regime. Additionally, Revolax Deep with Lidocaine can last for somewhere between 12 to 18 months and has a shelf-life of 2 years. Revolax uses the purest hyaluronic acid derived from bacterial growth. As a result, there is extremely low risk of immunogenicity and rejection by the body with this product. Revolax Deep with Lidocaine also has a unique cross-linking design that reduces the risk of product migration after deposition. Its high elastic modulus also means that it is able to resist deforming forces well and remain malleable enough to be contoured into the desired shapes. It is also monophasic and polydensified, which, in turn, means it is a cohesive, smooth, and uniform gel that can increase precision and consistency during injection. When compared to major brands of dermal fillers, Revolax is able to match quality, longevity, and ease of use.
Revolax Deep with Lidocaine contains cross-linked hyaluronic acid at a concentration of 24mg/ml. It also has 0.3% lidocaine hydrochloride.
- Put the patient in a comfortable semi-reclined position.
- Prepare the skin that is to be treated with an alcohol solution.
- Using a surgical marker, or a soft white pencil, identify the area(s) that need to be injected for treatment.
- Revolax Deep with Lidocaine works best with a 27-gauge needle; attach this needle to the prefilled syringe.
- Apply some pressure to the syringe plunge to gently extrude a tiny amount of filler material out of the needle to prime it.
- Ensure the needle is tightly secured to the syringe so that it does not come off during injection.
- Revolax Deep with Lidocaine should be deposited into the mid-to-deep dermis layer for optimal results. When injecting into the layer, some resistance should be felt during needle advancement, and there should also be some plunger resistance during the actual injection of material. The needle tip should not be visible. If the needle is at the wrong depth, slowly retract the needle and attempt injecting again.
- During injection, gently apply constant pressure on the syringe plunger while pulling the needle back in a linear thread. Remember to release the plunger prior to completely withdrawing the needle out of the skin, so as to make sure that none of the filler material is placed in the epidermis.
- For any palpable or visible bumps, compress the area with your thumb and first finger. However, excessive manipulation can result in more bruising and swelling. Overzealous correction can only result in unnatural appearances. Tailor the injection to match and overall be suitable with the patient’s preferences and overall facial features.
Any additional instructions can be found on the package insert that comes with the product.
Avoid using Revolax Deep with Lidocaine on patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding; under 18 years of age; have a history of allergic reactions to hyaluronic acid or lidocaine; and patients who tend to develop hypertrophic scars. Also, do not use Revolax Deep in conjunction with laser therapy, chemical peeling, and dermal abrasion procedures. Areas that have obvious signs and symptoms of inflammation or infection should also not be injected with Revolax Deep.
The most frequent side effects of Revolax Deep are typically mild, transient, tolerable, and need no medical intervention. These effects include the following: pain, bruising, swelling, and redness at the injection site. Nodule formation and a bluish discoloration may also occur if the injections are placed too superficially.
There are also risks of serious side effects occurring, these can include infections and vascular occlusion that can result in tissue necrosis, but these are extremely rare. Vascular occlusion occurs mainly due to inadvertent intravascular injection and may result in extensive permanent scarring and tissue damage if immediate procedures are not performed. Follow the use instructions outlined in the product pamphlet to avoid any complications.
