RHA Fillers by Revance
If you’re looking for a highly effective injectable treatment for dynamic wrinkles, RHA fillers by Revance may be your ideal solution. Dynamic wrinkles can create a false appearance of sadness, anger, or other negative emotions. RHA fillers can smooth away these frustrating wrinkles.
What Are Dynamic Wrinkles?
Not all wrinkles are created equal – while some form due to aging, sun damage, pollution, or stress, others result from overuse of facial muscles. The wrinkles and folds that appear due to overactive facial muscles are called dynamic wrinkles.
While Botox (a neuromodulator derived from botulinum toxin) has been the standard injectable for treatment of dynamic wrinkles, RHA (Resilient Hyaluronic Acid) fillers are the latest cutting-edge option. These advanced dermal fillers by Revance have taken the beauty world by storm.
What Do RHA Fillers Contain?
Many dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid (HA), a synthetic version of a biological compound present in our skin and joints. As a natural lubricant and moisturizing agent, hyaluronic acid helps retain water to boost the volume and elasticity of the skin. With age, the skin produces less hyaluronic acid, leading to sagging skin, creases, folds, and wrinkles.
RHA fillers by Revance feature Resilient Hyaluronic Acid (RHA). These products are made using a patented crosslinking method of manufacturing. This advanced process allows RHA to more closely resemble the natural hyaluronic acid in the skin. This optimizes tissue integration and improves the strength and stretch of the filler.
How Does RHA Work on Dynamic Wrinkles?
The flexibility of RHA fillers allows them to adapt to dynamic facial movements. Because RHA more closely resembles the natural HA found in the skin, the compound blends effectively and seamlessly into the tissues to provide superior results.
RHA fillers by Revance are the only soft-tissue fillers that are approved for filling dynamic wrinkles. The resilient structure of these fillers ensures that the active ingredient does not get quickly metabolized in the body and instead provides longer-lasting volume restoration.
The elasticity of RHA fillers is the reason why these fillers plump up wrinkles and creases while still allowing your skin to move naturally along with your facial expressions.
Which RHA Fillers Are Available?
RHA 2, RHA 3, and RHA 4 are available. RHA 2 is injected into the mid-to-deep dermal skin layer in order to enhance thin lips and smooth away smoker’s lines, radial cheek lines, and various fine lines.
RHA 3 is injected at the same depth as RHA 2. It is an excellent option for use at the oral commissures (the sides of the mouth) and the nasolabial folds (deep lines stretching from the sides of the mouth to the sides of the nose).
RHA 4 is injected deeper in the skin layers, at the deep dermis. This allows it to easily correct severe dynamic wrinkles like the nasolabial folds.
RHA Fillers vs. Botox
RHA fillers are much longer lasting than Botox; while Botox lasts for 3 to 4 months, RHA fillers provide results for 12 to 30 months. This allows patients to save money on maintenance treatments. These fillers also offer very natural-looking results.
