A new generation of dermal fillers is here, and Southeastern Plastic Surgery is thrilled to welcome it to our plastic surgery practice in Tallahassee, FL. The RHA Collection is the latest line of FDA-approved injectable dermal fillers to reach the U.S. These fillers have already gained popularity around the world for their exceptionally natural-looking results, and they are the newest addition to our broad menu of nonsurgical anti-aging treatments.
Whether you are looking to enhance your lips with lip injections, smooth away lines in your skin, or enjoy enhanced contours, RHA may be the treatment for you. Read on to learn more.
What Is the RHA Filler Collection?
The RHA Collection is a new line of resilient hyaluronic acid fillers from Revance and Teoxane. These new formulations of fillers are designed to closely mimic the hyaluronic acid found in our bodies for a more natural-looking volume boost.
- RHA 2: Used for lip injections and to smooth out small lines
- RHA 3: Fills deeper wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds
- RHA 4: Ideal for rejuvenating the lower face and targeting the deepest creases
The fillers typically last for up to 15 months, though this timeline may vary for each person. That’s similar to what you can expect from other HA fillers, as well.
How Are RHA Fillers Different From Other HA Fillers?
RHA fillers crosslink longer chains of HA and contain fewer chemical modifications than other HA fillers, such as JUVÉDERM and Restylane. Because the HA is gently processed at a lower temperature during manufacturing, it maintains more of its natural structure. The result is a more stable and resilient consistency, earning it the name resilient hyaluronic acid.
What does that mean for you? Longer crosslinked chains mean the filler acts more like an organic substance found in your body. Any dynamic facial movements look especially natural—think laughing, talking, and frowning. This is ideal for anyone looking for “undetectable” filler results: plenty of soft, subtle volume without obvious signs you’ve had a treatment done.
Are RHA Fillers Right for Me?
Like other injectables, RHA fillers are safe for adults of all ages and skin types. The best way to find out whether the RHA Collection is right for you is to schedule a one-on-one skincare consultation with one of our trained aesthetic injectors. Your injector will discuss your goals with you and examine your concerns to determine the best treatment approach. This customized treatment plan may include RHA fillers, different filler formulations, or other injectable options, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic.
