What are RHA Fillers?

Up until recently, patients had to undergo two types of treatments (neuromodulators and dermal fillers) to address both dynamic lines (those caused by repetitive facial contractions while laughing, smiling, frowning, or squinting) and static lines (those caused by the natural aging process, sun damage, environmental factors, and lifestyle choices, such as smoking.) RHA fillers represent a bridge across that gap. They can treat all types of wrinkles in a single session, maximizing your outcome while reducing downtime.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a compound found naturally in the human body. It is abundant in youth but begins to decline with the aging process. HA binds with water molecules, ensuring a plump, soft, smooth complexion. As hyaluronic acid stores are slowly depleted, the skin becomes more prone to lines and creases, and certain areas of the face begin to appear hollow and dull. Luckily, HA can be injected using our newest line of RHA fillers.

RHA fillers are made with a flexible form of hyaluronic acid that can support spontaneous facial movements and expressions. These fillers adapt to your natural and unique facial features, providing a highly organic-looking outcome.

What are the Different Formulations for RHA fillers?

The RHA collection provides 3 types of fillers that together can address almost any facial imperfection and restore a refreshed, revitalized appearance.

RHA 2: RHA 2 is engineered to combat moderate wrinkles and folds in adults over 22 years of age. It is formulated with lidocaine for maximum patient comfort. In addition, RHA 2 can be used to refine and contour the lips.

RHA 3: This option can be used to address moderate to severe lines surrounding the nose and mouth, as well as to correct imperfections in the corners of the mouth and the jawline. RHA 3 has been called a “game-changer” due to its ability to rejuvenate, smooth, and plump depleted contours.

RHA 4: RHA 4 helps revive the cheeks, replacing lost volume and enhancing the overall facial appearance. It can also provide a transformation in the jawline while combating dynamic lines around the eyes, nose, and mouth. RHA 4 is formulated to tackle the deepest facial wrinkles and folds, successfully rolling back the clock on maturity.

Who Makes a Good Candidate for RHA Fillers?

Because RHA fillers are made with HA that mimics the hyaluronic acid already found in the body, negative reactions are quite rare. Anyone that is frustrated by wrinkles, lip lines, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and other signs of aging will make an excellent candidate for RHA fillers, provided they are of sound mind and body and have realistic expectations for their results.

What can I Expect After My Treatment?

Patients can expect to be in and out of the office within fewer than 30 minutes, as RHA filler injections are painless and non-invasive. Clients can return to their normal activities right away. It’s important to avoid intense sun exposure after treatment, along with retinol creams and alcohol for the first few days. Mild swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the injection sites will resolve rapidly, and results can last up to 15 months.
