How Are RHA Fillers Used to Treat Dynamic Wrinkles?
Repetitive facial movements can create dynamic wrinkles and folds. RHA dermal fillers can effectively improve the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. The resilient filler preserves natural facial movements while minimizing the appearance of lines. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body, and this improved formula aligns with the body’s HA to help smooth away wrinkles while restoring volume. RHA fillers have many benefits, including:
- Improves dynamic wrinkles and folds
- Restores facial volume
- Contours facial areas
- Sculpts and balances proportions
How Long Do RHA Fillers Last?
RHA dermal fillers can last up to 15 months. RHA fillers take longer to break down than some other fillers. While long-lasting, results are not permanent and require regular follow-up injections to maintain youthful results.
What Types of RHA Fillers Are Available?
RHA dermal fillers are a collection of injectables with various formulations to help patients achieve aesthetic beauty goals. There are several RHA fillers, including:
- RHA 2: This formulation treats mild wrinkles on the upper face, like forehead lines and crow’s feet. It can also be used to enhance the lips and appearance of the mouth.
- RHA 3: This injectable filler treats deeper wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, such as nasolabial folds. It can also add volume and definition to problem areas like the jawline.
- RHA 4: This formulation can treat the deepest wrinkles and contour the face with more noticeable results. It can also be used to contour areas of the face, like the cheeks and jawline.
