RHA Fillers vs Botox:
While Botox corrects dynamic wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles that cause them, RHA fillers smooth dynamic facial lines by restoring lost volume in your tissues, allowing you to retain your facial expressions but with fewer lines and creases when injected into the area.
RHA dermal fillers work better for patients with concerns about keeping their natural facial expressions. They also offer longer-lasting results (up to 15 months compared to 3-6 months with Botox). For the ultimate nonsurgical facial rejuvenation treatment however, RHA fillers can be combined with Botox or similar botulinum Toxin A products such as Jeuveau and Dysport to reduce wrinkle, smooth skin, and plump tissues. Botox can even enhance RHA filler results. It can extend its durability by reducing HA breakdown since it temporarily reduces muscle activity and minimizes friction.
Which RHA filler is right for me?
Redensity: Recently FDA approved Redensity RHA Filler for lip lines can also be used to smooth folds on the cheeks and neck.
RHA 2: For Dynamic Moderate Wrinkles (comparable to Juvéderm Volbella and Restylane Silk): Designed to treat surface lines and moderate facial wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds, vertical lines, radial cheek lines, and crow’s feet (“the elevens”).
RHA 3: For Severe Dynamic Wrinkles (comparable to Juvéderm Vollure and Restylane L): A thicker formula designed to treat deep wrinkles and creases such as nasolabial folds and smile lines. It builds volume and can smooth more severe wrinkles and folds, it can also be used to volumize the midface and lips, and smooth and plump the cheeks.
RHA 4: For Dynamic Extended Areas (comparable to Juvéderm Voluma and Restylane Lyft): It is the most potent formula of the RHA Filler collection, designed to treat the deepest lines and folds, namely those along the lower face and jawline. It can smooth severe wrinkles and restore volume and definition to the cheeks.
