Due to the ease of administration and high level of satisfaction, we’re excited to see the rise of dermal fillers continuing in the cosmetics industry. At REVOLAX, we’re proud to say that the Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in our products is crosslinked with no BDDE residue detected but, what does that really mean? Let us break it down for you to make things a little easier.

Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance that is found throughout the body’s cells. Clusters are found most densely in the skin but also occurs in cartilage, connective tissue and fluid that lubricates the joints. As a highly soluble substance, Hyaluronic Acid can hold up to 1000 times its weight in H20 molecules.  Due to the excellent absorption properties of the molecules, this makes it an excellent candidate for volumising and plumping skin.

In its natural state, HA is enzymatic and breaks down at rapid speeds. Therefore, in order to sustain turnover of the molecules, they must be chemically engineered to create a thicker gel in comparison to the usual liquid form.
