The RHA® family of dermal fillers uses a unique hyaluronic acid formula to provide natural, seamless results. At West Michigan Plastic Surgery, we are proud to be one of only a few providers offering this filler family. Find out why so many people love RHA® dermal fillers!
The RHA® family of dermal fillers has been available in Europe since 2015 but only arrived in the USA in 2020. These fillers are FDA-approved, and years of use in several countries have proven their effectiveness. They use hyaluronic acid, a popular filler material. However, RHA® uses a unique formulation that looks and moves more naturally.
We currently offer this RHA® filler for fine lines or “lipstick lines” around the mouth. Smoothing these lines makes your looks look more defined and youthful. The special RHA® formula means this filler moves dynamically as your active lips move.
RHA® dermal fillers are injectable treatments that use a special hyaluronic acid formula. Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide, a large sugar molecule, and it can form cross-links and different shapes. The hyaluronic acid in RHA® fillers most closely matches this molecule’s form in your skin. As a result, it looks and feels more flexible, resilient, and natural. When injected, this molecule interacts with moisture in the skin to enhance volume and smooth wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid is among the most widely used dermal filler materials in the world. Since your body recognizes this material, reactions are extremely rare. Almost anyone makes a good candidate for the RHA® family of dermal fillers. You should not have RHA® or any injectables if you have a skin infection in the treatment area.
When you arrive for your consultation with Dr. Holley, he will listen while you describe your areas of concern and the results you would like to see. He will assess your facial anatomy, skin elasticity, and other factors to decide which type of filler will work best for you. West Michigan Plastic Surgery offers a range of fillers, so we can choose the ones that will achieve your desired results.
Injection of RHA® dermal fillers usually takes about 15 minutes. You can have treatment on your lunch break and return to work immediately. RHA® fillers offer an excellent option for anyone wanting to add volume and smooth wrinkles without delays or downtime.
You will see an immediate increase in volume after your RHA® injections. Your results may continue to develop and “settle” for a few days after treatment. RHA® for lipstick lines typically lasts about a year. Formulas used for wrinkles and creases last up to 15 months.
You can return to your usual activities after RHA® injections with no downtime. You may notice some minor bruising or swelling in the injection areas. These effects usually fade within a day or two, letting you continue to enjoy your smoother, plumper appearance.
