With different filler brands manufacturing different chemical formulas, every experienced practitioner will advise against the simultaneous use of different brands. Depending on the product at least 12 months should lie between the injection of one brand and the switch to another. However, for people looking to benefit from more than one product and getting several parts of their face injected at once, there are ways of combining dermal filler treatments and utilise the strength of different fillers for different areas.
Brands like REVOLAX offer product ranges with a similar chemical formula, meaning that all fillers of the brand can be used for different areas of the face and are safe to be combined. In the case of REVOLAX, practitioners can choose between three products which cover all areas of the face and vary from a fine, to a denser viscosity. A trained practitioner will be able to assess the client’s face and choose the right product for each application area.
To give an example of what a combination treatment could look like, we head to Dr Mark Gorman’s clinic in London where the plastic surgeon and REVOLAX Ambassador performs non-surgical aesthetic procedures regularly. To give his client, Nisha, the best possible outcome, Dr Gorman injects her chin, jawline, cheeks, tear troughs and nose in one session and uses a variety of different REVOLAX products.
To sculpt and bring out facial features, REVOLAX Sub-Q is the best choice due to its high viscoelasticity and thick consistency. Areas like the tear troughs or superficial wrinkles like crow’s feet benefit from REVOLAX Fine’s thinner consistency and REVOLAX Deep is one of the most requested fillers for lip augmentations and moderate lines.
Combining two of these or even all three products enables a well-rounded outcome, meaning, that the aesthetic result is generally more harmonised with the rest of the face. Mark Gorman’s patient Nisha loves the outcome of her combination treatment: ‘I absolutely love the results. It’s so much more than I expected.’
