RHA fillers, such as Teoxane’s TEOSYAL, are newly FDA-approved lines of dermal fillers made from resilient hyaluronic acid (RHA) that can treat both superficial fine lines and severe, deep facial folds. RHA fillers also have a small amount of lidocaine to numb the area and reduce discomfort during the injection(s). Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance naturally found in the human body and it gives the skin volume while keeping it hydrated for a glowing, smooth appearance.
- RHA 1: treats fine lines in the face, neck and decollete
- RHA 2: augments the lips and fills vertical lip lines; fills and smooths fine lines and wrinkles all over the face, including undereye hollows and perioral lines
- RHA 3: treats deeper wrinkles around the mouth, nose, lips, and jowls
- RHA 4: treats severe wrinkles and folds in the face, especially the cheeks and jowls; contours the cheeks and jawlines
Almost everyone is a candidate for this new and exciting dermal filler! If you’re looking to treat any signs of aging, each RHA filler is tailored to treat specific skin concerns on specific points of the face. If you are sick or recently had any dental work, you may need to reschedule. You should also avoid treatment if you are allergic to lidocaine or recently took anti-inflammatory medication.
RHA fillers only take about 20 minutes or less, depending on the area being treated and how many injections are needed. There is no downtime so once your injections are completed, you can leave the office and continue with your normal routine. You may experience mild bruising and swelling but this will quickly reduce within a few days to reveal your newly enhanced skin.
Results can last anywhere from 9-18 months, depending on the area being treated and how well you maintain your results.
