While wrinkle relaxers have long been the treatment of choice for lines related to muscle contractions in high-motion areas of the face, there are also now dermal fillers that can handle these particular signs of aging: the RHA® Collection. Our Los Angeles-based team of Board-Certified and Cosmetic Fellowship-Trained Dermatologists is especially invested and experienced in injectables, having served as principal investigators for most fillers approved by the FDA for use in the United States.
As leaders in the field of injectables—and facial aesthetics in general—we have authored more than 150 peer-reviewed studies and books and given more than 300 lectures on industry subjects. We have immense experience with virtually every filler option available, which gives us the ability to weigh the various nuanced benefits of each treatment strategy and choose the ideal product for each patient. Our goal (and talent) is to create beautiful results that look natural and last as long as possible. Everyone will notice, but no one will know!
RHA® stands for “Resilient Hyaluronic Acid,” which refers to an especially robust form of the sugar molecule that is found naturally throughout the body—including the skin, where its ability to hold 1,000 times its weight in water makes it a critical component in staying well-hydrated and moisturized.
The hyaluronic acid made for the fillers in the RHA® Collection is formulated to more closely resemble the hyaluronic acid made in the skin, which easily adapts to facial movements—especially in highly dynamic areas, such as around the mouth. This gives the results an especially natural look.
There are multiple formulations in the RHA® Collection, each with a specific focus:
This filler is designed to reduce the appearance of “early” lines, such as perioral lines, which are fine wrinkles that develop around the mouth. It can also subtly enhance the lips by adding volume, “fine tune” the shape of the lips for improved contours and symmetry, and fill in under-eye hollows
Created to reduce moderate facial lines, this filler typically targets nasolabial folds, corner lines, marionette lines, and similar signs of aging related to volume loss and muscle activity.
Similar to its counterparts, this filler also targets signs of aging on the lower face—but is used for patients with deeper, more severe corner lines and nasolabial folds. It can also be used to restore lost mid-face volume.
Intended for “delicate” work, Redensity smooths vertical lip lines (sometimes called “smoker’s lines”) and similar fine wrinkles.
Our Board-Certified and Cosmetic Fellowship-Trained Dermatologists are adept at quickly and expertly performing injections, which makes for natural-looking and long-lasting results that don’t take long to administer. A single RHA® session can be as short as a lunch break, with specifics depending on the area or areas being treated.
Expect some initial side effects, such as bruising and swelling, which will somewhat obscure the results at first. The added volume will be visible right away, but will appear increasingly natural and ideal as signs of the treatment fade in the days after a session.
Our practice is the only one in LA with a staff made up entirely of board-certified dermatologists who have completed a year-long post-residence cosmetic fellowship in the advanced use of injectables, lasers, and medical rejuvenation procedures and technology.
We don’t just lead the cosmetic dermatology curve, we create it.
