At our Zormeier Cosmetic Surgery & Longevity Center locations in Noblesville, IN, Shelbyville, IN, Danville, IL, Healdsburg, CA, and Ukiah, CA, we offer an innovative line of dermal fillers called The RHA® Collection. These fillers use unique formulas to treat both expression lines and the signs of aging that result from volume loss. Patients can target multiple problem areas during one treatment to improve their appearance and boost their confidence.
Dermal fillers are cosmetic injectables with a smooth, gel-like formula that, when injected into the skin, can plump, lift, and contour the treatment area to correct aging-related concerns and enhance facial features to improve facial aesthetics and promote patients’ satisfaction in their appearance. We offer several lines of fillers at our Zormeier Cosmetic Surgery & Longevity Center locations in the Northern CA area, including the innovative RHA® Collection.
The RHA® Collection consists of injectable fillers formulated with a flexible, hyaluronic-acid-based formula that, upon injection, can help patients accomplish different aging-related and aesthetic goals. This line is different from other dermal fillers because it is the first-ever FDA-approved line that can use a hyaluronic-acid-based formula to treat expression lines on the upper half of the face.
The Traditional Use of Dermal Fillers and Neuromodulators
Before this collection entered the cosmetic world, there were two primary injectables designed to treat the most common signs of aging: dermal fillers and neuromodulators. Products like Botox and Dysport qualify as neuromodulators, and they work on the muscular level to smooth expression lines with an active ingredient called botulinum toxin A.
This purified protein relaxes the muscles and blocks communication between the brain and nerve signals. After treatment, the muscles respond to the active ingredient and no longer contract, which makes facial expressions less exaggerated and the skin looks smoother.
Treating Volume Loss With Hyaluronic-Acid-Based Fillers
In the same way, dermal fillers traditionally have been the primary solution for those wanting to target aging that has resulted from volume loss in the middle and lower half of the face. Different dermal fillers contain a gel-like formula that mimics the hyaluronic acid that the body produces naturally to restore volume into specific areas to augment the lips, smooth facial folds, and soften lines.
The RHA® Collection Difference
The RHA® Collection is different from other lines of fillers. It uses a special manufacturing process and a hyaluronic acid-based formula to treat both dynamic wrinkles that result from repetitive muscular expressions on the upper half of the face and the lines that form from volume loss on the middle and lower half of the face with a specifically formulated product to do so. The results are immediate and long-lasting and deliver natural-looking results.
The RHA® Collection
RHA Redensity™ is specifically formulated to treat the vertical lines around the mouth, technically called perioral lines but also referred to as lipstick lines. After initial treatment, results are immediate and last up to one year.
RHA® 2 treats lines and wrinkles resulting from volume loss and dynamic expressions, including the lines around the mouth. It delivers immediate, subtle, and refined results that last up to 15 months.
Patients who want to smooth the lines and wrinkles that result from volume loss and dynamic expressions may benefit from RHA® 3. Injections deliver natural results that are immediate and last up to 15 months.
RHA® 4 is designed to smooth the deeper lines, wrinkles, and folds that form on the upper and lower half of the face due to both dynamic expressions and volume loss. RHA® 4 is an excellent solution for patients with the more advanced signs of aging who want to restore a youthful appearance and achieve natural-looking volume. Results are immediate and last up to 15 months.
What To Expect From Your Treatment
Your treatment will begin with a consultation at our NorCal office, where we will give you more details about these fillers, how they work, and how they can address your particular area of concern. We’ll ask you some questions about your medical history and ensure that you don’t have any allergies to any ingredients in the injectable. Then we can design your treatment plan with one or more of these fillers.
The Treatment Process
These injections are virtually painless, but if necessary, before your treatment, we can apply a topical numbing cream to your skin. When you come to one of our Northern CA offices, we’ll take every step to promote your comfort during treatment. You can expect immediate results following your treatment, and those results will continue to develop and improve in the week following your treatment.
After your treatment, you can resume your normal daily activities. The treatment itself is quick and qualifies as a lunchbreak treatment since injections only take minutes to administer. It’s important that you follow some post-treatment instructions to ensure the best results.
It’s important to avoid blood-thinning supplements and medications, alcohol, and strenuous workouts for the first 24 hours. You should also avoid anything that significantly elevates your body temperature and excessive sun exposure.
Am I a Candidate?
You may be a good candidate for one or more of the fillers from the RHA® Collection if you want an alternative and long-lasting solution for dynamic wrinkles and aging-related volume loss. We can choose the right fillers to address dynamic expression lines, smile lines, lip lines, and facial folds resulting from volume loss to help you achieve the most comprehensive results.
