Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body. It has many uses, including keeping the skin supple, wound healing, creating new cells, tissue regeneration, and is a component in keeping joints mobile and flexible. Injectable hyaluronic acid fillers are a synthetic version of this naturally occurring substance used to plump and fill areas that have lost volume, due to substantial weight loss, or the natural course of aging.Before & After Lookbook
Other fillers target superficial or fine lines and wrinkles. RHA is the only FDA approved Hyaluronic Acid filler which is not only approved for moderate to severe wrinkles, but for placement into the deeper layers of the skin for an even more improved result.
It is also the first and only hyaluronic acid filler that moves with lines, for an even more natural appearance, whether your face is at rest or in motion. This revolutionary European developed product is now available for use in the United States.

There are definite indications for surgery, which can offer dramatic and permanent results. However, for the early signs of aging, surgery may not yet be indicated. Also, there is also downtime and recovery with surgery, as well as significant cost; if the timing or finances are not optimal, RHA offers a fantastic alternative, providing smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles, restoring volume, and allowing for smoother and more supple skin without surgery.
Patients must be at least 22 years old in order to use RHA. Also, it should not be used in anyone with severe allergies, or with previous anaphylaxis. It cannot be utilized in anyone with a lidocaine allergy. Finally, this product should not be used if you have a bleeding disorder. Dr. Whitfield, plastic surgeon in Austin, will review your medical history and tell you if RHA is right for you.

Both products treat wrinkles, but not in the same way. Neurotoxins work by “freezing” the muscles that cause wrinkles, giving them a smoother appearance, and generally only to the forehead and around the eyes.
However, they cannot treat deep wrinkles in deeper parts of the face, such as the cheeks and smile lines, which require volume to plump them up. RHA helps to temporarily restore this lost volume, which makes the skin appear smoother and younger.
Other fillers are currently FDA approved for injection into the lips, cheeks, chin, and smile lines.
On average, most patients will see results for 15 months; without a touch-up, the filler will gradually be absorbed by the body, and the face returns to its pre-injection appearance.
The most common risks of injection are bruising and discomfort at the injection site, both of which are temporary. Infection is rare. More serious complications can include numbness or weakness in the face, arms, or legs, a white or cold appearance of the skin, or changes to vision; these are extremely rare, and these risks are minimized by having a board-certified and highly trained plastic surgeon to perform these injections. If you have a history of Herpes Simplex Virus, consult Dr. Whitfield before receiving RHA treatment.
