As we age, wrinkles can develop for a lot of reasons. Our skin naturally loses some of its elasticity over time. In addition, as we move our facial muscles repeatedly every day, lines can develop. This is a natural process, and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. However, many people feel that they can be more confident in their skin by reducing the appearance of lines on the face. If you’re one of these people, keep reading to learn more about RHA and whether it’s the right option for you.

What Is RHA?

RHA is a highly-refined dermal filler that’s made to reduce the appearance of lines in the face. This is a safe treatment for those looking to achieve more vibrant skin. This filler, with the use of modern technology, uses a type of acid that’s made to be almost identical to the hyaluronic acid that’s already in your skin. Hyaluronic acid is also incredibly important for the production of collagen, which is a major factor in skin plumpness and tightness. This filler is injected into the face with the use of a small needle, and the results can last for over a year.

Who Is a Candidate for RHA?

Most people are potential candidates for an RHA procedure. However, this might not be a good fit for you if you have a history of intense allergic reactions to any of the ingredients. We’ll talk to you about your medical history to make sure that you don’t have underlying conditions that could prevent you from healing correctly or cause bad reactions. This also might not be the right option for people who are planning on getting certain harsh facial treatments after this procedure. We’ll discuss risks and expectations with you, as well, so you can make an informed decision and feel confident in your choice.

What to Expect During an RHA Procedure   

We’ll talk to you about how to prepare for the procedure so you can arrive ready to achieve beautiful skin. We might ask you to stop taking certain medications, especially blood thinners, to reduce the chance of any complications or delayed healing.

RHA procedures don’t take long–in fact, we rarely need to keep patients for longer than 30 minutes, making this an option for people who have busy schedules. Depending on our conversations, we might give you a numbing agent to make sure you’re comfortable. However, the injections themselves contain a material–lidocaine–that’s designed to produce a numbing effect. The amount of injections we give you will vary depending on your unique circumstances. 

RHA Aftercare     

The effects of this treatment are impressively long-lasting, but it might take a few weeks to see full effects. Your face might be numb for a couple of hours after the procedure, but this should resolve itself quickly. You can usually pick up normal levels of activity immediately, though you might want to hold off on heavy exercise for a couple of days to prevent swelling. Patients sometimes need touch-up appointments after a few weeks to make sure that the results are exactly what they want.

Frequently Asked Questions
