Introducing the latest generation in natural and resilient HA-based dermal fillers: the RHA® Collection
The dynamic facial wrinkles that form when you smile, frown, or raise your eyebrows have traditionally been treated with neuromodulator injectables like Botox® or popular soft tissue HA (Hyaluronic Acid) fillers like Juvéderm®. At California Skin & Laser Center, we are excited to offer the next-generation Resilient Hyaluronic Acid (RHA) fillers from our offices in Stockton, Lodi, and Elk Grove: the RHA® Collection by Revance Therapeutics. These fillers represent a significant advancement over older filler products and other therapies to improve or eliminate the signs of aging.
The beauty of RHA fillers
True to its name, Hyaluronic Acid-based dermal fillers are “resilient” due to their unique formulation. Unlike “conventional” HA fillers, such as Juvéderm® and Restylane®, RHA products require fewer chemical modifications. Since they are processed less than their traditional, earlier-generation counterparts, RHA fillers are thought to be less likely to induce an inflammatory response from the body. Minimal alterations, in turn, retain a more natural structure. Accordingly, RHA results in an end product that is closer to the lubricating and moisturizing HA produced by our bodies naturally and found in our skin, joints, and eyes.
As a less altered product, RHA is appropriate for patients concerned about adverse reactions. Not only is this filler a low-risk alternative to other fillers, but it renders natural-looking results and superior stability or “resilience.” In fact, these fillers can last for up to 15 months (versus other HA-based fillers, which sustain results for around six to 12 months). Individual results vary.
Patient Actual Results
The RHA® Collection: Elevating next-generation fillers
Not unlike other fillers, the RHA® Collection is not a single product. Instead, it is a family or collection of fillers. Each product is uniquely formulated and indicated for a specific concern or part of the face. This line has already established itself worldwide but represents the latest injectable dermal filler collection approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
The following products within the line build upon the latest advancements in non-surgical, anti-aging technologies and therapies:
- RHA 2 – Lip injections, modest surface lines (i.e., “crow’s feet”)
- RHA 3 – Deep wrinkles; for instance, smile lines around the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds), and to boost mid-face volume
- RHA 4 – Lower face and jawline; severe folds and contouring to add definition to the cheeks
The wonders that Dermal Fillers can do for you
The Uniqueness of the RHA Fillers
Patients appreciate that their results look exceptionally natural. Due to its unique processing methods, RHA® Collection fillers behave more like organic substances. They optimally “mimic” naturally-produced HA. So, these fillers integrate well into tissues. The filler is undetectable when you frown, laugh, worry, talk, or otherwise make “dynamic” movements. Results are subtle. You don’t look like you’ve “had work done.” It may be appropriate for patients who are apprehensive about “frozen” face or looking “overdone” with other types of fillers or injectables (like neuromodulators). Conservative processing supports fewer side effects, such as swelling, and it is safe across a wide range of ages and diverse skin types.
