Hyaluronic acid facial fillers have exploded in popularity in recent years, allowing patients to fill in fine lines and wrinkles in a very natural way that does not involve any surgery or downtime. RHA fillers are the next step in the evolution of facial filler technology that represents a different approach to help minimize wrinkles and deeper skin folds.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Before taking a deeper dive into RHA fillers, let’s take a look at the importance of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance that adds volume and moisture to the soft tissues of your body, such as your skin. Unfortunately, the aging process will eventually lead to the gradual depletion of this substance, which promotes healthy, youthful skin.
So hyaluronic acid fillers work by restoring the levels of HA within the skin, leading to an internal moisturizing effect that helps to diminish the signs of fine lines and wrinkles.
Up until now, hyaluronic acid fillers were only used for minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. This left out a class of wrinkles known as dynamic wrinkles. These are deeper skin folds that are created by facial muscle movements, such as furrowed eyebrows.
What makes RHA fillers different is that they are the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid fillers for targeting dynamic wrinkles. Dr. Priya Nayyar is excited to begin offering this state-of-the-art treatment to her patients affected by dynamic wrinkles.
RHA Fillers Benefits
Dynamic wrinkles occur as a result of repetitive facial muscle movements. The muscles that create your facial expressions are incredibly dynamic, making millions of movements each and every day.
Whenever you laugh, frown, squint, or talk, you are creating dynamic folds and wrinkles. The difficulty with dynamic wrinkles and folds is that the area can seem stiff when treated with conventional facial fillers.
RHA fillers were developed to be adaptable to your facial muscle movements, giving you a much more natural appearance, both at rest and in motion.
RHA fillers are uniquely formulated to more closely resemble the naturally occurring hyaluronic acid found in your skin. They are manufactured using a very gentle manufacturing process, which allows for the maintenance of a more natural hyaluronic acid structure.
When will I notice results?
One gratifying aspect of being treated with RHA fillers is that you should experience immediate results, which will continue to build over time. The results will also appear quite natural, as no exotic substances or implants are injected.
How long will my results last?
RHA fillers were developed to be long-lasting. You can expect your results to last up to 15 months.
