When Should I Choose the RHA® Collection Over Other Injectable Treatments?
There’s a new collection of fillers in town, and you don’t want to miss out on these! Even though it seems like there are so many fillers that all do the same thing, there are different reasons to choose one over the other, and the professionals at Park Avenue Medical Spa can help you decide which option is best for you.
What Is the RHA® Collection?
The RHA® Collection is a collection of fillers designed to treat dynamic wrinkles and folds on all areas of the face. These fillers contain hyaluronic acid (HA) to hydrate, plump, and refresh the facial appearance. There are four different levels of the RHA® Collection. Each of these levels is designed to meet your unique needs, which will smooth and plump the skin.
- RHA® 1: Treats fine lines and wrinkles in the face, neck, and décolleté
- RHA® 2: Treats the area around the upper regions of your face (forehead and crow’s feet), which usually have moderate wrinkles and lines
- RHA® 3: Treats the area around your lips and mouth, which usually has moderate wrinkles and lines
- RHA® 4: Treats wrinkles and folds by adding volume to those areas
BOTOX® Cosmetic or RHA®?
BOTOX® Cosmetic and RHA® both smooth out wrinkles, but they are different from each other. BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily immobilizes the muscles in the treated area and only lasts about four months. The fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed out, but the results may not look completely natural. The RHA® Collection fills in the fine lines and wrinkles, but it is more natural looking because it rebuilds the lost volume in your tissues. With RHA®, you will still be able to show off your facial expressions for up to 15 months.
It is possible to combine both BOTOX® Cosmetic and RHA® because they do complement one another. You will be able to experience the effects of relaxed muscles and plump skin. While BOTOX® Cosmetic only lasts about four months, the wrinkles do not get worse during that time, and the skin can replenish volume and plump up for up to 15 months with RHA®.
How to Choose?
Choosing an injectable treatment that is right for your needs can be difficult. It is important to schedule a consultation to discuss your desires and evaluate the type of wrinkles that you would like to address. The RHA® Collection provides natural, long-lasting results, which may be more appealing to you than other dermal fillers. Speaking with a professional can help ease the process and explain all the details about the different options available at Park Avenue Medical Spa.
