RHA Fillers, the Most Effective Anti-Aging Hyaluronic Dermal Fillers to Date?

First things first, what are RHA Fillers?

Revance’s award winning RHA filler collection are the only FDA approved hyaluronic acid fillers to treat moderate to severe dynamic facial wrinkles and folds. Designed to smooth even the most wrinkle prone areas in your face, it delivers a softer, more natural look at rest and in motion. The R in RHA stands for “Resilient”, a reference to its durability and its ability to adapt to your facial movement thanks to a streamlined manufacturing process that allows it to mimic the natural occurring HA in your skin..

How long do RHA Fillers last?

RHA filler results have proved clinical effectiveness for up to 15-months following treatment, and for some patients results lasted beyond that time frame. It is important to note however that results will vary by age, lifestyle and treated area.

Why do RHA Fillers Last that Long?

According to Dr. Conor Gallagher, PhD, there are three contributing factors:

  1. A high concentration of HA delays breakdown.
  2. Longer HA chain length slows its degradation by the Hyaluronidase enzymes naturally present in the skin, and other factors such as free radicals.
  3. Its high adaptability to skin movement makes it less vulnerable to friction forces, and motion related breakdown within the dynamic facial lines.

Are RHA Fillers Safe?

Thanks to a gentler manufacturing process that results in less hyaluronic acid crosslinking and fewer chemical manipulations, the resilient HA filler collection is considered the most natural, and the least modified compared to other traditional HA fillers currently on the market.

Are RHA filler injections painful?

Because RHA filler formulations are mixed with an anesthetic (lidocaine), the injection should be easily tolerated. In addition, the doctor, or the nurse injector performing the facial injections may also apply a topical numbing cream to the area being treated to minimize your discomfort.

Can RHA fillers be dissolved?

Like all other HA fillers, RHA fillers can easily be dissolved using an enzyme called hyaluronidase. Our skilled nurse injectors can help patients reverse poor filler results they may have received from under-qualified providers.

RHA Fillers vs Traditional HA Fillers?

According to a study in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, patients who had RHA filler treatments reported higher aesthetic improvement, satisfaction and greater durability than those treated with other traditional hyaluronic acid dermal fillers available in the US.

So, what exactly makes RHA fillers different than other HA fillers?

A few of the advantages of the RHA Collection over traditional HA fillers are: RHA dermal fillers last up to 15 months compared to 6-12 months for traditional HA fillers. RHA dermal fillers treat both static and dynamic wrinkles, meaning those caused by facial movements & expressions. Other HA fillers such as Juvéderm® and Restylane® only treat static wrinkles. Patients experienced less swelling with RHA filler injections due to their cleaner manufacturing formula. By virtue of their minimalistic cross-linking process of HA allowing it to mimic the natural movement of your native facial tissues, RHA dynamic dermal fillers provide more natural results.

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.
