What Makes RHA® Fillers Unique?
There are many different fillers available, but if you’re looking for a filler that can provide both short- and long-term results, then it’s time to consider RHA® fillers. These fillers are made from synthetic hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in your skin. RHA fillers have many benefits over other types of fillers. These are among the reasons why RHA Fillers are unique from other types of fillers. Let’s look at a few more reasons why RHA fillers are a great option for your non-surgical cosmetic goals.
RHA fillers are FDA approved
RHA fillers are FDA-approved for use in the face and can be used to treat a variety of facial wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds (the lines that run from the corners of your mouth to your nose), marionette lines (the lines that run from the corners of your mouth to your chin), and crow’s feet (the lines that radiate out from the corners of your eyes). This means RHA fillers are safe and effective when administered by a board-certified plastic surgeon.
Made from unique ingredients
RHA fillers are made from ingredients similar to your body’s own natural sugars and collagen, so they are well-tolerated and have minimal risk of allergic reactions. RHA fillers are made from a material called hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid attracts and binds to water molecules. This helps to keep the skin hydrated and plump, and unique cross-linking prevents the product from breaking down quickly. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in your body and is responsible for keeping your skin hydrated but, as you age, your body produces less which can lead to dryness and wrinkles. RHA fillers are designed to replenish the lost hyaluronic acid in your skin and restore lost volume, resulting in a more youthful appearance. These fillers are designed to work with your natural facial movements, preventing an “over-stuffed” look. RHA fillers provide both immediate and long-lasting results. You will see an immediate improvement in the appearance of your wrinkles and folds, and the results can last up to 18 months.
RHA is injected into the skin
RHA fillers are injected into the skin using a very fine needle. The fine needle minimizes trauma to the skin and helps to reduce swelling and bruising. It’s inserted just below the surface, into the deep dermis, where the product is less likely to be displaced or resorbed by the body. The injection process takes only a few minutes and is relatively painless. Once the filler has been injected, it will begin to work immediately, providing you with results. RHA fillers contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic, which makes the injection process more comfortable. Additionally, RHA fillers are slowly metabolized by the body, meaning they last longer than other types of fillers.
