What is the Revox Line Relaxer
The Revision Skincare website goes on and on about how the Revox Line Relaxer is the ultimate game-changer! After using the product for several months, I wanted to share my Revox line relaxer review and provide a before and after video demo so you can see the results for yourself! There are a few drawbacks, but for the most part, this is a positive review!
What is the Revox Line Relaxer
The website will tell you that unlike traditional wrinkles solutions, this novel serum works with a neuromodulator to deliver powerful and reliable results every time! The website will say it’s like having all your anti-aging products in one bottle – only better!
But if you’re like me, that first summation is a head scratcher. It works with a “neuromodulator?!!” Come again? In English this time?!
So I did some internet sleuthing on this word…and here’s what I found…
What are Neuromodulators?
Neuromodulation is an exciting and cutting-edge breakthrough in the world of medicine.
By altering nerve activity through targeted electrical stimulation or chemical agents, this technology does incredibly impressive, and sometimes downright unbelievable, things. For example, physicians can now stimulate parts of the brain that were previously believed to be locked off from medical intervention. This means that medical professionals are no longer limited to just traditional treatments, but instead can use neuromodulation to maximize health and wellness for their patients.
What are examples of Skincare Neuromodulators?
Botox is a neuromodulator that works to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and other facial blemishes. It works by blocking nerve signals to the injected area, which in turn relaxes the muscles that form wrinkles, leading to smoother skin.
Revision Skincare says that the Revox Line relaxer is a science-backed treatment that both works in perfect tandem with Botox, but is itself, a stand along product that can put up a great fight to reduce wrinkles!
What are the key ingredients?
There are a few main ingredients in this serum by Revision Skincare that all are great anti-aging skincare ingredients.
Revox has hyaluronic acid to help fight the look of fine lines and wrinkles that dry skin can cause.
Inulin which can help improe hydration and softens skin.
Arnica Montana Flower Extract which will help soothe your skin and then a Dermal Support Blend of 3 peptides and 2 botanical extracts – all of which help to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Does Revox Replace Botox?
Alright. I live in reality. And my reality is that I don’t want to know a reality without Botox. So, no, the Revok serum does not replace Botox! It works in tandum with the Big B, so think of them as a happily married couple.
But if you want to keep your skin in top form for longer than any regular beauty routine could offer, Revox may just be the right choice. It not a replacement for Botox, but works together with it to help you maintain maximum skin-smoothing effects.
Revox isn’t a one-and-done type of robust formula but rather one designed to optimize in office treatments and is clinically proven to help prolong their effects. It kicks in after your Botox has since faded and helps prolong its anti-wrinkle effects. So if lines and under eye wrinkles have been telling you it’s time to age gracefully, why not give Revox a try? Helping you defy wrinkles doesn’t have to come at the expense of results lasting only a few weeks!
How Often do I Use Revox?
I get Botox regularly every three months (if you haven’t read all my Botox posts, then you need to check them out!)
Because Botox is expensive I use Revision Revox line relaxer as a part of my routine to help keep the magic smoothness kicking as long as possible. So I use Revox a few times a week.
Does it Work under Makeup?
Alright, so this brings me to my chief complaint about Revox. I don’t think it goes on super amazing under makeup. At least, not for me.
Sure, it has hyalauronic acid and all sorts of moisture loving peptides, but my aging skin is dry. So I really need a good eye moisturizer before I put on my under-eye concealer. And I’ve never figured out how to get my moisturizer to go on well over the Revox. So my eye concealer gets almost flaky under my makeup.
So for me, I prefer to use my Revox at night and then put on my evening eye cream on top of it. That lets the serum soak in and I feel like I get the benefits, without the hassle of figuring out how to use it during my morning routine.
Earlier I said I use it a few times a week. My main reason for not using it nightly is because this stuff is not cheap! Since I still pay for Botox, I feel like 3x week is more than enough for me.
I apply it to my crows feet area and my forehead in a thin application.
Where I apply it
I apply to clean skin prior to moisturizer. I apply mine to both my crow’s feet eye area and my forehead. I’m careful to squeeze out the product onto my hand, and use my finger to apply it. I think this works best because it doesn’t waste that much product this way.
The applicator pumps out a lot of product – too much actually. That and it’s not a very precise targeted application. So I dispense desired amount onto my hand and tap a thin layer of product little under my eyes and all the way towards my temples getting all the areas that love to crinkle when I smile! Then I take what’s left and place it onto my forehead where I typically wrinkle. Be sure to avoid direct eye contact.
How to use it with other skincare products
The Revox serum soaks in pretty quickly. It certainly doesn’t sit on my skin. So I apply it at night after double cleansing my face, do a quick teeth brushing, and then put on my eye cream and go about my marry way.
Is it worth it?
This is a tricky one to answer. I’ll be candid. Can I live without it? Sure. It does not replace Botox by any stretch of the imagination. But Revos i not even pretending to. Revox advertises itself as being specifically formulated to work in tandum with Botox. But does it help my skin look smoother right after putting it on? Yes it does.
The before and after photos are pretty much all you need to see. I didn’t edit or retouch these at all! For me, that’s pretty darn good proof it helps! So used with the Botox I’d say you “are going down swinging” with this skin aging thing!
