RHA® Collection by Revance® Aesthetics
At Silicon Valley Institute for Aesthetics (SVIA), Dr. Jerome Liu and Dr. Tom Liu are thrilled to offer San Jose and Sacramento-area patients access to the cutting-edge RHA® collection—a line of meticulously curated facial fillers designed to smooth wrinkles and folds that develop due to repetitive facial expressions. These “dynamic” wrinkles, which refer to the lines that form when the face is in motion, have traditionally been treated using cosmetic injectables that temporarily relax the facial muscles; however, the RHA® collection consists of the first and only hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers FDA-approved to erase dynamic wrinkles and creases. Our board-certified and fellowship-trained plastic surgeons were specifically chosen by Revance® Aesthetics to provide treatment with RHA® fillers due to our reputation for achieving the highest standards of results.
Why Choose RHA® Dermal Fillers?
Short for “Resilient Hyaluronic Acid,” RHA® fillers are the first of their kind. As facial expressions such as frownling, smiling, laughing, and squinting cause fine lines to deepen, treating these dynamic wrinkles in a way that still achieves natural-looking and seamless results can be difficult. RHA® fillers are among the only injectables available that are resilient and flexible enough to smooth creases like nasolabial folds without causing a stiff, overdone, or artificial aesthetic. Furthermore, the RHA® collection is formulated with little to no chemical modifications, allowing the fillers to imitate the behavior of the naturally occurring HA molecules that keep your skin looking full and hydrated.
How is Treatment With RHA® Fillers Performed?
Facial rejuvenation with the RHA® collection involves a non-surgical treatment that doesn’t usually require anesthesia. Injections start with a consultation, where our experienced plastic surgeons and/or aesthetic injectors will determine the best type of filler for your needs. There are three formulas in the RHA® collection that can be chosen based on the depth and location of your facial creases. After your treatment plan is finalized, injections can typically be completed in under one hour. An ultra-fine needle will be used to meticulously deliver the RHA® product into the designated area(s). Patients usually feel little to no discomfort during this process, but a topical anesthetic can be applied if necessary to further enhance your treatment. Your injector will then lightly massage the area to evenly distribute the filler, and you will be able to continue your day with zero downtime. Some patients may experience bruising, swelling, or tenderness after their injections, but these effects should be mild and subside soon after your injections.
How Long Do RHA® Fillers Last?
Depending on each patient and the location of their injections, RHA® fillers can provide rejuvenation for as long as 15 months or longer. They are among the most enduring dermal fillers available and can provide long-term wrinkle reduction with occasional touch-up treatments pursued as necessary.
Due to our ability to achieve top-notch aesthetic outcomes, Silicon Valley Institute for Aesthetics is among a few select practices around the country chosen by Revance® Aesthetics to carry the exclusive RHA® collection.
