Plump your skin South Korean beauty technology
If you’ve decided to freshen up your look, it’s important that you feel confident in the quality of the products that your clinician is using. Developed in South Korea, REVOLAX has been available in the UK since 2017 and has swiftly become one of the UK’s most popular dermal filler brands.
The range features three different dermal fillers, each with unique properties to suit different treatment areas. Patients can sculpt, volumise and enhance their features with a versatile range of treatment options. Plump-up your lips with the Russian lip technique, freshen up your under-eyes with tear-through filler or achieve an enviable side-profile with a non-surgical rhinoplasty. Their Fine, Deep and Sub-Q variants are all made of the highest-quality hyaluronic acid, offering three diverse, highly cross-linked dermal fillers.
Fine is their most lightweight filler, developed for the treatment of superficial lines, including crow’s feet, glabellar lines, and neck wrinkles, and is also a popular choice for the Russian lip technique. Deep is a thick and longer-lasting gel developed for the treatment of deep wrinkles, nasolabial folds, non-surgical rhinoplasty, and augmentation of the cheeks, chin, and lips.
Offering the thickest formula in the line, REVOLAX Sub-Q boasts an advanced ability to mould, maintain structure, and longevity, making it ideal for areas such as the jawline and nose.
Hyaluronic Acid is produced naturally by the body but depletes as we age, causing volume loss. The fillers bio-degrade in the body over time and results can be reversed through dissolving, meaning that patients now have a low-commitment and minimal down-time alternative to traditional cosmetic procedures.
REVOLAX is a class III, CE-marked medical device that has passed all stringent UK safety testing and is only available to purchase from Fox Pharma.
