Ask Your Naples Med Spa Whether RHA® by Revance is Right for You
Anyone seeking non-invasive treatment for wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging quickly realizes that there are numerous injectable dermal filler, neurotoxin, and muscle relaxant options to choose from. They all provide age-defying benefits, but which one is right for you? While treatment area combined with skin type and condition will play a role in your decision-making, what other factors should you consider when choosing the right treatment?
With exceptional skincare knowledge backed by the expertise of board-certified cosmetic surgeons, Southwest Florida’s Tru Glō Medspa can help guide your search for the perfect anti-wrinkle injectable treatment. Your facial features, skin condition, and aesthetic concerns might lend themselves to Botox®, the long-standing mainstay of injectable wrinkle treatment. Or the unique features of your target treatment area might benefit most from Juvederm®, Restylane®, or other fillers. Whatever the case, we would also want to assess whether RHA® by Revance might offer you the most aesthetically pleasing results. In particular, RHA® might prove just right for you if you need to address dynamic wrinkles and folds with a malleable filler that naturally adjusts to your facial dynamics.
How Does RHA® by Revance Work?
Approved by the FDA in 2015, RHA® by Revance is the newest hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. As you may know from trying similar fillers, hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally produced compound in our bodies that works with collagen and other proteins to provide our skin with volume, elasticity, moisture, and an overall healthy appearance. Natural HA production slows as we age, diminishing skin volume and moisture retention. The HA used in RHA® production is designed to closely mimic the natural HA in our bodies, which helps optimize the skin’s moisture retention and maintain the volume boost provided by the filler.
What Makes RHA® Different Than Other HA-Based Fillers?
RHA’s® formulation is more malleable and less dense than other HA-based fillers. Revance Therapeutics partner TEOXANE specifically designed the filler to treat dynamic wrinkles, lines, and folds so that they will adapt to facial movements and look natural when moving or at rest. The density of traditional HA-based fillers often makes them too stiff to naturally adjust with changes to facial expressions. RHA®’s effectiveness at this helped make it the first and only FDA-approved dermal filler for use with dynamic wrinkles and folds. In particular, RHA® has proven highly effective at treating laugh lines and folds.
RHA® at Tru Glō Medspa
RHA® by Revance is only available through medical practices—like Tru Glō Medspa—that are under the supervision of board-certified cosmetic surgeons. We offer three formulations of Revance RHA®:
- RHA® 2, which helps reduce the onset of visible signs of aging related to early laugh lines.
- RHA® 3, which is formulated to address deeper laugh lines.
- RHA® 4, which goes deeper into the skin to help add volume to deep lines and folds and decrease ridges.
Your Revance RHA® treatment at Tru Glō Medspa begins with gentle cleansing and numbing the area with a local anesthetic. Once numb, your aesthetician will inject the filler into the target areas with a fine needle, which most clients describe as feeling like getting pinched. There is no downtime, though patients usually experience redness and slight swelling around the treatment area, with some also expressing light bruising. These side effects are short-term and typically subside within a week.
Revance RHA® results are immediately apparent. The dermal filler fills gaps, reduces the appearance of wrinkles, eliminates fine lines, and enhances facial skin volumes while allowing for natural-looking facial expressions and movement. These results typically last up to 15 months, which is longer than most dermal fillers offer.
