What Are RHA® Dermal Fillers?
RHA® dermal fillers represent the latest in resilient hyaluronic acid (HA) formulas designed to address aging signs. This collection includes RHA® 2 and RHA® 3, which are indicated for injection into the mid-to-deep dermis for the correction of moderate to severe dynamic facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds; and RHA® 4 is recommended to create or restore volume in the dynamic extended areas of the face, especially the cheeks and contours. These formulas are available for use by adults 22 or older.
What Do RHA® Dermal Fillers Address?
RHA® dermal fillers are primarily used for the correction of severe to moderate dynamic wrinkles and folds. The different formulas are geared toward addressing specific areas of the face. What separates RHA® from other dermal fillers is the use of more natural hyaluronic acid within the formula. This compound is used to enhance skin volume, moisture, and structure. When injected, RHA® fillers closely mimic your real HA concentration, allowing for a seamless result.
