RHA dermal filler in New York
When fine lines and wrinkles appear or volume loss in the face becomes noticeable, people often seek out dermal fillers to address these common signs of aging. In the past, only neuromodulators could correct dynamic wrinkles, lines caused by facial movement. With TEOXANE Laboratories’ new line of dermal fillers called RHA (Resilient Hyaluronic Acid), this is no longer the case. RHA® 2, RHA® 3, and RHA® 4 are the first and only HA fillers FDA-approved to treat dynamic facial wrinkles and folds.

Remaining at the forefront of dermatological advancements, the Laser Skin and Surgery Center of New York is among the first to offer this new line of dermal fillers. Our board-certified doctors offer comprehensive medical and cosmetic dermatology services, and with more than 100 laser devices, our dermatologists can combine treatments to give patients the best possible results. Equipped with a full time, on-site research division, our NYC doctors are consistently making discoveries and creating new, cutting-edge techniques to meet patient goals safely and effectively.

RHA Dermal Fillers for Dynamic Wrinkles

Your face is always in motion, whether you’re grinning from ear-to-ear while talking with a friend or making micro-movements like reacting to what you’re watching on TV. These and any other repetitive facial movements can create wrinkles and folds. Diminishing the appearance of these dynamic wrinkles shouldn’t leave your face looking stiff or unnatural, just more youthful.

RHA dermal fillers can treat dynamic wrinkles without creating a stiff look to the face. These advanced fillers adapt to your face’s natural movements while helping you achieve a naturally youthful look at rest and in motion. Our doctors inject RHA fillers into the mid-to-deep dermis or deep dermis to superficial subcutaneous tissue, depending on the area of the face and the severity of the wrinkles being treated.

RHA fillers are resilient due to the gentle manufacturing process used to create them. The fillers preserve the natural structure of hyaluronic acid (HA), which helps provide moisture, volume, and structure to the skin. In doing so, these fillers can mimic the natural HA already found in your skin, giving the formula more stretch to easily adapt to the dynamic areas of the face, which results in a more natural look.

What are the Benefits of RHA Fillers?

RHA fillers are made to adapt to facial movements, not prevent them. Their natural materials closely align with your skin’s HA, which allows the fillers to give structural support and soften your facial features. RHA may provide the greatest flexibility possible in your most dynamic facial areas. RHA products also take longer to break down, so they last longer than traditional fillers because they move with your face.

Other benefits include:

  • Diminish dynamic facial wrinkles and folds without dramatically changing the face
  • Address aesthetic concerns like:
    • dynamic wrinkles
    • nasolabial folds
    • expression lines around the mouth
    • marionette lines
    • chin lines
  • Restore volume in the face
  • Contour facial areas like:
    • cheeks
    • chin
    • jawline
    • lips
  • Sculpt and balance facial proportions

Which RHA Filler is Right for Me?

The RHA collection of dermal fillers offers three different options for correcting facial wrinkles and folds. They each consist of unique properties and gel densities for achieving distinct aesthetic goals. For questions regarding the different types and filler prices, talk to your dermatologist to determine the best treatment
for you.

RHA 2: For Dynamic Moderate Wrinkles

RHA 2 treats dynamic wrinkles on the upper face, including horizontal wrinkles on the forehead, glabellar lines (11s), and crow’s feet in the outer corners of the eyes. It can also be used to add fullness and definition to the lips, while treating fine lines and wrinkles to enhance the appearance of the mouth overall. This filler is injected into the mid-to-deep dermal layers, where it can have the greatest effect.

RHA 3: For Severe Dynamic Wrinkles

RHA 3 works on deep wrinkles and facial creases, including nasolabial folds. At the same time, it is effective in smoothing away perioral lines (vertical lines above the upper lip), adding fullness to the lips, and turning up the corners of the mouth. Since it is also injected into the mid-to-deep dermal layers, it can also be used to add fullness and definition to the midface to restore a youthful facial contour.

RHA 4: For Dynamic Extended Areas

RHA 4 is the most robust of the RHA filler formulations, with the ability to correct deep wrinkles and contour the face with more dramatic results. It is placed in the deep dermal and superficial subcutaneous tissue, where it can provide superior results on even advanced signs of aging. It is also used to volumize areas like the cheeks and midface.

All of our filler treatments are performed by our board-certified dermatologists, ensuring you receive the highest level of care and the best possible results. Our doctors have the training and expertise necessary to customize your treatment plan to your precise needs and goals for natural, beautiful results.

Clinical Studies

Revance Therapeutics’s RHA fillers have been shown to be both safe and effective through a variety of clinical studies. An 18-month head-to-head, randomized, and controlled European clinical study specifically looked at how RHA 2, 3, and 4 improved nasolabial folds. This study was published in Dermatologic Surgery in October 2019.

Results showed:

  • Both participating subjects and investigators indicated high levels of satisfaction after the injection and over the long term
  • Physicians preferred RHA Collection products overall due to product placement, ease of injection, immediate results, and outcomes once injected tissue was massaged
  • RHA Collection fillers produced better long-term improvement of nasolabial folds volume based on 3D skin topography measurements
  • Patients required fewer touch-ups by (or at) day 14 with RHA gels (26.7% vs 35.6% with other gels)

Another 15‐month, prospective, multicenter, controlled, randomized, double‐blind, within‐subject (split‐face) clinical trial looked at 140 subjects with moderate‐to‐severe nasolabial folds. Results showed the resilient HA filler was noninferior to its comparator in high subject satisfaction, aesthetic improvement, and an overall trend toward higher scores for the resilient HA filler.

What’s the Difference Between RHA Fillers and Neuromodulators?

RHA fillers effectively treat imperfections of the mid-to-deep dermis, including dynamic lines around the eyes, nose, and mouth that have only been treated with neuromodulators like Botox until now. Although the RHA line works on these dynamic lines, they are classified as fillers and not neuromodulators. RHA dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid or HA, a natural substance found in the skin. Neuromodulators such as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin contain botulinum toxin as the active ingredient. Unlike neuromodulators, RHA fillers restore volume, in addition to smoothing away lines and wrinkles.

RHA fillers are different from other injectables because they can treat dynamic wrinkles and folds, while still allowing for facial movement. RHA dermal fillers are also less detectable because they integrate into the tissue. This leads to softer, natural-looking results when the face is at rest and in motion. We offer a full range of injectable fillers and can customize treatment plans for each patient.
