Revance® RHA Fillers In LOS GATOS, CA
Revance® RHA® Collection is a family of next-generation hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers offered at Advanced Aesthetic Dermatology by Dr. Bitters, designed to fill dynamic wrinkles and deep creases.
Developed in Switzerland in 2003, RHA has been used there for several years with gorgeous, natural results. There are three types of dermal fillers in the RHA® collection RHA® 2, RHA® 3, and RHA® 4. These are the first and only FDA-approved fillers for treating dynamic facial wrinkles. Specially formulated for wrinkles that move during the day, such as smile lines, these fillers are both stretchy and strong. By smoothing and lifting folds and wrinkles, RHA® allows you to express yourself, avoiding the appearance of frozen or filled skin.
Unlike RHA® 2 and 3, RHA® 4 can be injected deeper into animated areas of the face, such as the cheeks, to help build up the structure. Dr. Bitters can customize your treatment with these fillers when combined with your other treatments.
For a more comfortable injection, each RHA® filler contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic. Dr. Bitters provides numbing cream before the procedure for many patients.
The body may have fewer reactions to RHA® fillers because it is less likely to treat them as “foreign.” As a result, you may experience the following:
- RHA® injections may cause less swelling in some patients.
- An RHA® filler can last up to 15 months since the body metabolizes it more slowly.
- RHA® injections may make your expressions look more natural.
- RHA® fillers adapt to the natural movements of your skin.
Compared with other hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, RHA fillers are proven to treat wrinkles in areas that frequently move, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines) and other folds we see when we smile.
After RHA® filler injections, you may experience mild swelling, bruising or firmness, tenderness, itching, redness, or change of skin color and lumps.
There are usually only temporary side effects confined to the area where the injections were administered.
Some Revance® RHA® dermal filler options can last up to 15 months, surpassing the results of many other cosmetic injectable treatments.
No downtime or recovery period is required, so you can return to your day as soon as possible.
