RHA is a cutting-edge collection of dermal fillers made of naturally-occurring and biodegradable components that enhance your facial features. They are the world’s first FDA-approved dermal fillers for the treatment of dynamic wrinkles and nasolabial folds. Most dermal fillers are approved to enhance facial volume and reduce fine lines, but RHA fillers are equally effective both at rest and motion.

What are RHA Fillers?

RHA, or Resilient Hyaluronic Acid, fillers are the world’s first line of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers that are FDA-approved to treat dynamic wrinkles and nasolabial folds. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring component that makes your skin appear firm, taut, voluminous and supple. HA can bind up to 1,000 times its own weight in water; an incredible feature that keeps your skin moisturized and hydrated.

The RHA line of fillers are used to treat mild to severe facial wrinkles and nasolabial folds, enhance facial volume, and increase your skin’s youthfulness.

Types of RHA Fillers

  • RHA2: RHA2 fillers are injected into the mid-to-deep dermis level to treat mild to moderate wrinkles and lines.
  • RHA3: RHA3 fillers are injected into the mid-to-deep dermis level to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and lines, such as nasolabial folds and laugh lines.
  • RHA4: RHA4 fillers are injected into the deep dermis level to treat severe facial wrinkles, nasolabial folds, forehead lines, and other dynamic wrinkles.

The RHA Difference

Hyaluronic acid is one of the most common components in dermal fillers, including the Juvederm and Restylane families. What makes RHA so unique is that it is the only range of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers approved to treat dynamic wrinkles, i.e., those wrinkles formed from motion and by the overuse of facial muscles, such as forehead lines and frown lines. RHA fillers are the only hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers capable of minimizing facial wrinkles in motion.

Hyaluronic acid can’t be injected in its pure form because it gets metabolized almost immediately, making it unsustainable. Thus traditional dermal fillers use a chemically-treated form of it to ensure it stays in the body for at least a few months. The downside to that is that treatment instantly renders it less capable of filling the dynamic wrinkles responsible for facial expressions, such as the laugh lines and frown lines.

RHA is:

  • Different.
  • Unique.
  • Versatile.

RHA fillers contain hyaluronic acid components that are extremely close to the body’s natural HA components. They’re manufactured with a unique process that increases the hyaluronic acid’s retention with minimal chemical intervention. As such, RHA fillers are uniquely capable of filling dynamic wrinkles, giving you a natural look even when you’re smiling, laughing, or frowning.

Recovery & Aftercare Following RHA Treatment

RHA treatment doesn’t involve significant downtime or recovery. You may experience mild swelling, redness, and irritation around the injection sites for a few days, but it won’t prevent you from resuming your work and daily activities.

 Results will be immediately evident and you’ll continue seeing improvements over the next couple of days as the fillers set in place. You should avoid massaging your face to avoid spreading the fillers to undesired areas. RHA fillers have a lifespan of up to 2 years.
