RHA Fillers

RHA® RESILIENT HYALURONIC ACID® FILLERS IN NEW ORLEANS

We all want to look naturally beautiful, but treating dynamic wrinkles or expression lines on our faces can be challenging. These wrinkles, caused by the repetitive muscle movements we make throughout the day, etch themselves deeply into the skin. Even the best cosmetic treatments don’t seem to be able to soften them and make a difference.

Well, with the exclusive U.S. release of RHA® Resilient Hyaluronic Acid®, that is now changing. At last, you now have a radically new cosmetic treatment that will turn heads and draw tons of praise about how young and vibrant you look.

At the New Orleans Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery, Drs. Russel Hendrick, Parker Velargo, and Celeste Gary are proud to be the first practice offering this unique and revolutionary treatment in New Orleans, Louisiana.

WHAT IS RHA® RESILIENT HYALURONIC ACID®?

Resilient Hyaluronic Acid®, or RHA, is a new, advanced form of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin. Its purpose is to retain moisture and help sustain collagen production, the protein we all rely on to support our skin’s structure. RHA is the solution to many of our challenging aesthetic concerns, including:

  • Dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle motion
  • Nasolabial folds from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth
  • Expression lines around the mouth caused by smiling
  • Chin lines

YOUR RHA® TREATMENT INJECTIONS

Before beginning treatment, one of our skilled plastic surgeons will treat your skin with a topical numbing cream to ensure your comfort. Once this cream has taken effect, your surgeon will make a series of precisely positioned injections into the target areas of your skin. For optimal results, most patients require one to two units of RHA, administered in about 30 minutes.

Since these injections also contain the anesthetic lidocaine, the treatment area may feel numb for a few hours afterward. Immediately after your treatment, your doctor may massage your face to disperse the filler throughout the injection site.

You may schedule touch-ups two to four weeks after you have received the injections.

YOUR RHA® POST-TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS

After your treatment, we’ll provide you with a set of directions to guide you through your recovery and ensure you achieve optimal results. These will typically include:

  • Avoid touching, pressing, rubbing, or scrubbing the skin.
  • Avoid direct sunlight, and wear sunblock.
  • Avoid excess heat and sweating.
  • Do not participate in strenuous exercise.
  • Do not take blood-thinning medications and specific supplements.
  • Avoid alcohol, smoking, and caffeine products.
  • Do not use Retinol products.
  • Avoid wearing makeup for at least 24 hours after your treatment.

HOW LONG DO RHA® RESULTS LAST?

The results from your RHA treatment will appear gradually over two to four weeks. You will notice a smoothing of the skin surface, the reduction of visible wrinkles, and a tightening of skin laxity. On average, gel fillers such as RHA that contain hyaluronic acid can last for up to 15 months or more.

Your body’s metabolism will break down the HA gel very slowly over time. But the advanced RHA formula prolongs this breakdown, allowing the hyaluronic acid dermal filler to last longer.

HOW MANY RHA® TREATMENTS WILL YOU NEED?

You only need one treatment to see excellent results from RHA, but we encourage you to schedule repeat treatments at least once every two years to maintain your stunning results.

ARE YOU A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR RHA® TREATMENT?

If you are an adult over the age of 22 and would like to improve the appearance of deep or dynamic wrinkles, you could be an excellent candidate for this treatment, which is ideal for patients who have not gained results from other dermal fillers.
