What Are RHA Fillers?

The RHA collection comes with four different types of resilient hyaluronic acid fillers (HA fillers), each designed for different areas of the face and different cosmetic concerns. The main difference between these fillers is the strength of the formula and how much flexibility it has. Natural hyaluronic acid produced in the body is a sugar compound that keeps the skin hydrated and plump.  Therefore, patients can expect natural-looking results from their RHA fillers.

The four levels of RHA fillers are RHA Redensity for perioral wrinkles around the lips, RHA 2 for moderate dynamic wrinkles, RHA 3 for severe dynamic wrinkles and folds, and RHA 4 for volume restoration. Dynamic wrinkles are wrinkles that develop over time from continuous facial movements. The flexible RHA filler will fill in these wrinkles and move naturally with your face.

Who is a Candidate for RHA Fillers?

Most patients over the age of 22 who wish to smooth their dynamic lines and wrinkles are candidates for RHA dermal filler injections. At your consultation, Dana will discuss the RHA filler options we offer and help you determine the right one for your treatment. RHA fillers can be used to treat almost any kind of wrinkle or facial folds, including nasolabial folds, glabellar lines (frown lines), marionette lines, and lines around the nose or cheeks.

Dana can recommend other filler options for patients with an allergy to lidocaine since these dermal fillers contain this numbing agent in the formula. Patients who have other severe allergies or a history of bleeding problems might not be candidates for this treatment.

RHA Filler Treatment

RHA filler treatment is so quick that patients often receive their injections on their lunch breaks. The fillers contain lidocaine which will numb the treatment area and keep patients comfortable during treatment. The entire procedure takes less than 30 minutes and patients can immediately return to work or other daily activities.

Recovery From RHA Fillers

There is virtually no downtime or recovery needed after an RHA filler appointment. Mild discomfort, swelling, and bruising around the injection site are common but will improve on their own within a few days or less. Patients can see a gradual improvement in the appearance of severe wrinkles within a few days but the results are almost immediate.
