Not everyone ages the same. As a result, different treatments are recommended for different people. For example, if you have a large amount of facial sagging, folds, and creases, you may want to have a facelift procedure performed.
On the other hand, if you’re only dealing with light to moderate facial lines and wrinkles, you may be better off going with a facial filler treatment that does not involve surgery.
Facial fillers like Juvederm and Restylane have been around for a while. The new kid on the block is the RHA collection – an FDA-approved line of injectable facial fillers that is already establishing a reputation for providing very natural-looking results.
The RHA collection is a hyaluronic acid facial filler product line that offers individual fillers suitable for almost any type of anti-aging application, whether it’s for the face or the lips.
- RHA 2: Lip injections suitable for smoothing out small lines.
- RHA 3: Fills in deep wrinkles, like nasolabial folds.
- RHA 4: Appropriate for targeting deep creases and the lower face.
RHA 2 is most appropriate for augmenting the lips. It is also useful for lines found in the cheek area.
RHA 3 is most useful for nasolabial folds.
RHA 4 is most suitable for treating deeper lines in the lower face and jawline, as well as for deeper nasolabial folds. It also has an off-label use for contouring the cheeks.
There are many hyaluronic acid facial fillers on the market today. One thing that makes the RHA Collection different is its unique manufacturing process. The hyaluronic acid used in the injections undergo a gentle type of manufacturing that preserves the natural structure of the active ingredient, so that it closely mimics the hyaluronic acid naturally present in the skin.
In its native form, hyaluronic acid breaks down quickly and is metabolized by the body within 48 hours. To keep this from happening with its facial fillers, RHA uses a special cross-linking process with suspended chemical proteins. The result is a more pure and clean product.
RHA fillers are different from most facial fillers in that they contain hyaluronic acid that most closely resembles naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, helping it work more gently and effectively with your body.
Although facial fillers are considered to be an extremely safe and effective anti-aging solution, they are not for everyone. RHA fillers are considered safe for all ages of adults and skin types. If you currently have a skin infection, however, you’ll need to get it treated before receiving RHA filler injections.
The best way to determine if you would make a good candidate for treatment with RHA fillers is to schedule a consultation with the provider of your choice. They can examine you and recommend the most appropriate RHA filler product for your individual needs and treatment goals.
RHA Fillers Cost
The cost of undergoing a treatment with RHA fillers varies, depending upon factors such as your geographic location and individual provider. Schedule a consultation to learn how much a treatment with RHA fillers would cost you.
When undergoing any type of cosmetic procedure, safety should always come first. Be sure to select an experienced provider who knows how to administer the injections. The improper administration of fillers can lead to side effects like infection, bruising, pain, swelling, lumps and discoloration.
RHA Fillers Recovery and Results
Like most facial fillers, it doesn’t take long to recover from your treatment. This minimally invasive treatment may cause some minor skin redness and irritation that should resolve itself within the first 48 hours. If you find that your side effects are more extreme, or last a long time, contact your provider.
The results of treatment with RHA fillers last significantly longer than many other facial fillers. You can expect your results to last up to 15 months.
