What Are Potential Side Effects With REVOLAX?  

However you’re enhancing your natural beauty at your REVOLAX appointment, we’re here to make sure that you have everything you need to know about the treatment. There are a few things to consider both before and after your appointment.  

What are the potential side-effects of a dermal filler treatment? 

Your final dermal filler result will be seen at about 4 weeks after treatment, after the filler has had time to settle. Whilst not everyone experiences side-effects post-treatment, some common examples include:  

  • Swelling 
  • Bruising 
  • Itching in the area 
  • Red needle puncture marks 
  • Asymmetry 
  • Tenderness 

What REVOLAX Treatments Require Pre and Post Appointment Care?  

Whether you’re looking for some pout prep, considering a jawline filler, or any other treatment, you need to keep the potential side effects in mind. Any dermal filler treatment comes with the risk of side effects in the specific area of treatment.  

With any cosmetic injection, there is a risk of both bleeding and bruising after the needle has been inserted into the skin. Bruises are small hematoma, and they occur when small blood vessels get punctured, and leak into the soft tissue beneath. Due to the needle entering the skin multiple times during a dermal filler treatment, this can cause the surface of the skin to swell, as the skin on the face is fragile. 

Let’s have a look at how you can prep for your appointment and what aftercare can help you get the best results once you have visited your REVOLAX practitioner.  

Pre-Appointment Tips 

Ready to get the dermal filler of your dreams? We’re excited for you! If you’re looking to minimise the risk of side effects, then follow the below pre-treatment guidelines: 

  • Avoid blood-thinning drinks such as alcohol and green tea 1-2 days before injections 
  • Avoid blood-thinning foods such as garlic – consider this a few days before treatment 
  • Discontinue any blood-thinning medications or supplements one week before treatment (with your doctor’s consent.) These include aspirin and vitamin E as examples, and they increase the likelihood of bruising
  • Take Arnica tablets a few days leading up to treatment, to help reduce the amount of bruising and how long it lasts

Post-Appointment Tips  

After your REVOLAX treatment, you’ll see instant results, but you may also experience minor side effects (if any) almost immediately. The side effects may worsen after your appointment, so you may want to keep an eye on the treated area and treat accordingly. There are actions that you can take to lessen your treatment side effects: 

  • Eat fresh pineapple because it contains an enzyme called Bromelain which has anti-inflammatory properties. 
  • Use Arnica gel on the affected area to heal faster. 
  • Avoid alcohol for 1-2 days after injections 
  • Wait 24 hours after your appointment to applying make-up, to avoid any irritation 
  • Apply ice packs to the affected area to reduce the swelling and reduce bruising 
  • Avoid vigorous exercise for 1-2 days after injections 

Things To Look Out For 

When booking your REVOLAX treatment, ensure that you go to a reputable, qualified, and insured practitioner. Do your research on the clinic, practitioner, and treatment, so that you know what qualifications your practitioner has and look into their medical background. Your aesthetics practitioner should be able to administer treatments safely and effectively, with real skill.  

Look into the warning signs of complications from treatments that have been performed incorrectly, by researching your treatment in advance. Know what to do in case of any effects such as pale discolouration and numbness at the injection site, unusual swelling, or a rash/discolouration that is spreading. In these cases it’s important to act quickly if you suspect something is wrong, consult your practitioner or local health services. 

Your REVOLAX Pre-Treatment and Aftercare Advice 

Many of us have busy schedules; whether it’s face-to-face meetings, or a weekend party, it’s inconvenient for us to experience side effects when it comes to facial treatments. However, these risks must be considered as with any injectable treatment, therefore we’d recommend leaving enough healing time between your treatment and any big events! By choosing the right practitioner and following these guidelines, you can ensure that you have the REVOLAX glow up of your dreams.  

For more information on pre and post-treatment dos and don’ts, consult your practitioner. If you want any more information on the pre-appointment and aftercare advice, speak to your local REVOLAX practitioner before your treatment.
