Resilient Hyaluronic Acid for Dynamic Wrinkles
Our faces are in motion every day. Facial expressions have the power to tell others what we are feeling without us having to come right out and say it. The muscles beneath the skin move to show happiness, surprise, anger, sadness, fear, and more. Unfortunately, dynamic wrinkles like laugh lines, smile lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines form when we show these emotions. Over time with repeated movements, these wrinkles and lines become etched into the skin and are visible even when we aren’t making an expression.Have a Question
With RHA fillers, you don’t have to worry about your feelings negatively affecting your skin. Resilient hyaluronic acid (RHA) fillers can prevent and reverse dynamic wrinkles, enhance facial contours, and plump the lips. Patients can enjoy smooth, youthful skin that can give them confidence in their appearance.
What is the RHA Collection of fillers?
The RHA Collection of dermal fillers are made of resilient hyaluronic acid that is injected and beautifully integrates into the skin. These types of fillers are more resistant to facial movement because of the density of the gel, so the results last longer than other dermal filler options that are more susceptible to breakdown with movement. With RHA fillers, you can enjoy life without worrying about what your emotions are doing to your face.
The RHA Collection consists of a series of RHA fillers with different gel densities. Each one is designed to treat a specific concern and area of the face with very natural-looking results.
Am I a candidate for RHA fillers?
Have you recently noticed your frown and smile lines not going away? If so, you may be a candidate for RHA fillers. RHA fillers are beneficial for people who want to prevent or reduce the appearance of dynamic facial wrinkles. Those who want to enhance their facial contours and the size and shape of their lips may also be candidates.
Patients receiving RHA injectable treatment should be in generally good health and have realistic expectations of the results. It is recommended that RHA filler patients be at least 22 years old and experience mild to moderate facial aging.
A consultation with Dr. Friedlander can determine if RHA fillers are right for you.
What can RHA fillers treat?
We all develop wrinkles at different speeds and in different areas of our face. The RHA Collection offers various RHA fillers to fit your needs.
Moderate upper face wrinkles
If you are suffering from moderate wrinkles on your upper face, such as forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet, you may benefit from RHA® 2. This injectable treats the wrinkles often caused by frowning and laughing.
Lip volume and shape
Patients with thin or undefined lips can benefit from RHA® 2. This RHA injectable can enhance the contour and volume of the lips.
Deep facial wrinkles
Over time, people can develop deep wrinkles as a result of repeated facial movement. RHA® 3 is used to treat deep, set-in wrinkles, such as vertical lip lines, nasolabial folds, and other severe lines and creases.
Loss of volume
In addition to gaining wrinkles and lines, our face can actually lose volume over time. RHA® 3 and RHA® 4 provide volume to augment the cheeks and other facial contours. These RHA injectables add volume while improving the shape of the patient’s face.
Is RHA injectable treatment painful?
Before treatment, Dr. Friedlander will provide a topical numbing cream to make your injectable experience pain-free and comfortable.
What is the recovery like after RHA dermal fillers?
There is no downtime after receiving RHA dermal fillers; you are free to return to your normal activities immediately. You may experience mild swelling and redness that will resolve within a few hours or a day at the most.
As with all filler treatments, refrain from touching and massaging the treated area. Lumps or bumps are very uncommon filler side effects. If you notice them, please call Dr. Friedlander’s office to see if you need to come in for a reassessment.
How long do RHA fillers last?
RHA fillers can last up to 15 months. While the exact length of RHA results will vary depending on the patient, RHA fillers tend to provide longer-lasting results than other fillers.
Repeat treatments can help maintain your results.
How much do RHA fillers cost in New Jersey?
The cost of RHA fillers varies depending on the number of treatment areas, which filler you receive, and how many sessions you undergo. After a consultation with Dr. Friedlander, we can provide you with the specific cost of your RHA filler treatment.
What is the TEOSYAL® brand of RHAs?
RHAs were developed in Geneva, Switzerland, in 2003. They have been marketed in Europe under the brand name of TEOSYAL® RHA since 2004. In 2017, the FDA approved the use of RHA® 2, RHA® 3, and RHA® 4 for the correction of moderate to severe dynamic facial wrinkles and folds. Americans have enjoyed the benefits of RHA fillers since then. In the states, these fillers are known simply as RHA.
TEOSYAL® offers a range of products that are not currently available in the USA. At this time, only RHA® 2, RHA® 3, RHA® 4 are FDA approved.
