Dynamic wrinkles and folds are notoriously difficult to treat because the surrounding areas of the face make so many movements throughout the day. Fortunately, the RHA Collection offers the first dermal fillers that can successfully manage dynamic wrinkles and folds to provide a more youthful appearance without sacrificing expressiveness. At Baldone Reina Dermatology, we offer the RHA Collection of dermal fillers to patients living in New Orleans, Slidell, Covington and on the Northshore.
What is the RHA Collection?
The RHA Collection is the first line of dermal filler products designed to treat dynamic facial wrinkles and folds. Dynamic wrinkles and folds appear around areas of the face that frequently move, such as the eyes and mouth. These wrinkles are traditionally difficult to treat with dermal fillers because many dermal filler formulas can cause a stiff or unnatural appearance. The RHA Collection has been carefully developed to offer a smooth, yet resilient formula that closely resembles the body’s natural hyaluronic acid. Because of this, the RHA Collection seamlessly adapts to the skin to provide a natural-looking treatment for dynamic wrinkles and folds.
How Much Does the RHA Collection Cost?
If you are interested in pursuing injectable treatments with the RHA Collection line of dermal fillers, you will first have a consultation with one of the board-certified dermatologists at Baldone Reina Dermatology. During this consultation, we will assess your current condition and your treatment goals in order to determine the best approach to your RHA Collection treatment. Once these variables are taken into consideration, we will be able to provide you with the cost of treatment and any associated fees.
What is the RHA Collection Used to Treat?
Due to its smooth and advanced formula, the RHA collection is ideal for treating dynamic facial wrinkles and folds. This includes the following areas or concerns:
- Adding volume to the lips
- Under the eyes
- Wrinkles around the mouth, such as nasolabial folds
- Other deep facial lines and wrinkles
What is the RHA CollectionTreatment Like?
Before your RHA Collection treatment, we’ll apply a topical anesthetic to minimize any discomfort that may occur during the injection process. The dermal filler product will then be injected into and around the desired treatment area. Once injected, the skin may be lightly massaged to evenly distribute the dermal filler throughout the treatment area. RHA Collection injections take less than 30 minutes to complete, making this treatment a great option for patients with a busy schedule.
What is the Recovery Period Like Following RHA Collection Treatments?
After your RHA Collection treatment, you may experience swelling, bruising or sensitivity in the treatment area. These are common side effects of treatment, and will typically fade within a day or two. Despite these minor side effects, you will be able to return to work and all other normal activities immediately following your appointment. There is no downtime or recovery period involved.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from the RHA Collection?
The results from your lip injection treatment will be visible immediately. Once swelling fades, your final results will become noticeable. The RHA Collection has been clinically proven to last up to 15 months, after which time patients can receive additional treatments to prolong their results.
