Not all wrinkles and folds are created equal, which means you need customized treatment solutions that match the type and extent of your wrinkles or folds. At SHarper Surgery, Spa & Salt Lounge, we now offer the revolutionary cosmetic treatment with RHA, the latest innovation in dermal fillers. The RHA family of dermal fillers is uniquely designed to target different types of wrinkles and skin layers, working wonders.
What Is RHA?
RHA is an acronym for Resilient Hyaluronic Acid which is the first – and currently, the only – FDA-approved filler for treating dynamic wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is a gel-like natural component of human skin and has an exceptional water-binding ability that helps moisturize.
What Makes RHA Unique?
Wrinkles can be static or dynamic. Static wrinkles are typically due to skin damage from the sun, genetics, smoking, poor nutrition, or pollution. Dynamic wrinkles are a result of repetitive muscle movement or contraction that occurs when you smile, frown, or laugh. The most common facial areas for dynamic wrinkles are on the forehead, cheeks, and corners of the eyes (crow’s feet). As an advanced form of hyaluronic acid, RHA contains enhanced “resilience” brought about by a gentle and specialized manufacturing process. This ensures the fillers retain the natural structure of HA, which helps restore structure and volume while hydrating the skin. The unique formula of RHA makes it more stretchable, enabling it to adapt easily to dynamic facial areas. The result is firmer, voluminous, and taut skin that takes years away from your actual age.
How Does This Treatment Work?
During the treatment session, your skin is prepared with a topical numbing cream that enhances comfort. A series of RHA injections are then administered, after which you will be provided with detailed post-treatment instructions.
You can resume your normal activities after the session, although you will need to avoid sun exposure, alcohol, and retinol products until you recover completely.
