Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa is thrilled to offer the most advanced dermal fillers for rejuvenating the face: Resilient Hyaluronic Acid (RHA) fillers designed to treat dynamic wrinkles!
The first and only FDA-approved line of RHA fillers, the RHA Collection of injectable gel formulas is characterized by a unique blend of firmness, strength, mobility, and stretchability, making these fillers ideal for treating the dynamic wrinkles and folds that develop in naturally dynamic facial skin and muscle tissue that is constantly moving while making facial expressions.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler injections revolutionized cosmetic treatments in the early 2000s with injections that produced natural-looking improvements in skin tone and firmness, diminishing the appearance of static lines and wrinkles that are caused by the natural decrease in collagen and elasticity produced by the aging process.
Today, a new industry standard has been set by Teoxane Laboratories in Europe with their new Revance HA Fillers, known as the RHA Collection of Resilient Hyaluronic Acid fillers, designed to treat dynamic lines and wrinkles in different areas of the face. RHA dermal fillers represent the newest and most advanced development in dermal filler treatments.
The new RHA collection of dermal fillers is available only through select physicians such as plastic surgeons and dermatologists who fully understand facial anatomy. In the greater Houston area, you can now take advantage of RHA filler treatments at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, administered by board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Olga Bachilo.
Static facial lines are those that are produced as the body’s natural production of collagen and elastic decreases as part of the aging process. Dynamic lines and wrinkles, also known as expression lines, result from repetitive muscle movements and muscular gestures that occur when we make facial expressions, such as smiling. Some of the more commonly known dynamic lines and wrinkles in the face include:
- Worry lines and forehead furrows – lines that extend across the forehead or between the eyes as a result of muscle contractions made during periods of stress or extreme focus
- Nasolabial folds or parenthesis lines – lines that extend from the outer edges of the nose to the outer edges of the mouth and are caused by smiling and other gestures of the mouth
- Perioral wrinkles, sometimes known as smoker’s lines – small, vertical lines and creases around the lip line that are caused by muscular contractions used in the act of smoking, eating, speaking, and other facial expressions involving the mouth
RHA fillers are formulated to treat dynamic lines and wrinkles because the gel formulas used in these treatments are able to move with the facial muscles. For decades, dynamic lines have been treated using injectables such as Botox and Xeomin, which are formulated using neurotoxins that work by immobilizing the facial muscles, causing some patients to appear stiff and expressionless. By contrast, the new RHA fillers are formulated to move with the dynamic contractions of the facial muscles, allowing for more natural facial expressions.
Resilient Hyaluronic Acid more closely mimics the natural HA in human skin than traditional HA fillers because it is composed of longer chains of HA processed at lower temperatures, and with less crosslinking, making them more similar to the natural HA found in the human body. These longer, more resilient chains of HA produce a more natural and less “stiff” appearance in patients than traditional HA fillers that contain shorter chains of HA. For this reason, RHA fillers produce more natural-looking results while smoothing out dynamic lines and wrinkles.
The RHA® collection currently includes three formulas, each designed to treat different areas of the face and different types of lines and wrinkles. Results appear instantly after treatment and may last as long as 15 months.
