Introducing the RHA® Collection of designer fillers
If you’re looking for a new way to target expression lines that won’t affect your muscular movement, we have just the thing. At Restore Center for Aesthetics in Munster, IN, we are proud to carry the RHA Collection, the only FDA-approved line of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers that can soften and smooth expression lines and dynamic wrinkles.
What Is the RHA Collection?
The RHA Collection contains different dermal fillers that are FDA-approved to treat the signs of aging on the skin. This collection of fillers has been used in Europe for many years but has now made its way to the United States. It has been approved to treat dynamic wrinkles, facial folds, and lines that form from repetitive expressive movements and volume loss below the skin’s surface.
How Does It Work?
These dermal fillers contain a synthetic version of hyaluronic acid that blends beneath the skin’s surface to add volume to areas that need it. The RHA Collection has been carefully designed using a specialized process that focuses on creating a synthetic version of hyaluronic acid that is a near-perfect match to the body’s own hyaluronic acid.
The creators of this collection take pride in their gentle manufacturing processes, which helps this particular hyaluronic acid resemble the body’s HA as closely as possible. The benefit of this manufacturing process is that its entire end goal is to create a version of hyaluronic acid that delivers the most natural results possible. You won’t look unnatural or stiff upon your injection but will retain your ability to express and move, just without those wrinkles and expression lines.
What Does It Treat?
This collection of fillers can treat many of the signs of aging that show up in the lower half of the face. It can treat expression lines from expressive movements like talking, laughing, and frowning, among others. It can also restore volume around the mouth and the lower half of the face, treating smile lines and nasolabial folds. It can also add volume to the eye area, plump the cheeks, and restore volume in the temples if they have become hollow due to aging.
The RHA Collection contains three different dermal fillers: RH2, RH3, and RH4. We can use these different dermal fillers to perform some of the following tasks:
- Smooth vertical lip lines
- Improve the appearance of acne scarring
- Treat and correct jowls
- Improve the appearance of the lips
- Address chin creases
- Smooth the lines that form around the nose and mouth due to aging
The Collection: RH2, RH3, and RH4
RH2, RH3, and RH4 are the three dermal fillers in this collection that treats facial wrinkles and folds. Each is composed of an injectable gel that can be injected into the lower half of the face, including the area around the nose and mouth.
Each will deliver an instant smoothing effect to help restore youth to the skin so that you don’t have to live with those wrinkles that form around the nose and mouth. During an initial consultation, we can determine which of these is the right choice for your problem areas.
A New Way To Treat Dynamic Wrinkles
Until now, the only products that have been FDA-approved to treat dynamic wrinkles are products that contain neuromodulators. Neuromodulators include products like Botox, Xeomin, Dysport, and others that relax wrinkles. Neuromodulators work by targeting dynamic muscles that cause those dynamic wrinkles, and injections into the muscle temporarily relax the muscles so that they no longer contract.
Dynamic muscles are the expressive muscles that cause repetitive expressive movements over time, and as the skin’s structure weakens due to aging, those wrinkles become more prevalent. However, there is a new collection of dermal fillers on the market designed to target and treat those dynamic wrinkles not by relaxing the muscles but by adding volume below the skin’s surface.
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
Each of these fillers in the RHA Collection is injected directly into the problem area with an ultra-fine needle, which helps make the entire injection process comfortable and painless. Additionally, each dermal filler is formulated with lidocaine which helps numb the area from the inside out so that patients remain comfortable during the injection process.
Once the fillers are administered into your problem areas, your appointment will be complete. You’ll see an immediate improvement in your problem areas, and you’ll get long-lasting results.
What Kind of Aftercare Instructions Should I Follow?
Once your appointment is over, you will not have to prepare for any downtime, but your injector will provide you with a list of instructions on how to care for your treatment areas. These instructions may include some of the following directives:
- Avoid exposure to extreme temperatures, hot or cold, post-treatment
- Avoid applying makeup to the treatment areas
- Avoid intense exercise for 24 hours post-treatment
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
Once you undergo treatment with one or more of the fillers from the RHA Collection, you can expect your results to be immediate. You will notice an immediate improvement in the appearance of your lines, wrinkles, facial folds, or hollow areas immediately following your injections.
You may experience numbness immediately following your treatment due to the lidocaine in the fillers. This is completely normal, and feeling will return within a few hours. In regards to those results, you can expect to enjoy them for 15 months with optimal treatment.
Am I a Candidate?
The best candidates for this treatment are adults over the age of 22 who want to treat expression lines, dynamic wrinkles, and volume loss that have resulted from the aging process. An initial consultation at our office will help determine if the RHA Collection can help you reach all of your aesthetic goals. We’ll review your concerns, health history, and treatment goals during your initial consultation to determine if you are a candidate.
Then, we can schedule your treatment. Treatments only last 15 to 30 minutes based on which and how many areas you want to treat. Some individuals may not qualify for treatment, including pregnant or nursing women and those who are allergic to lidocaine.
