Why Choose RHA Fillers?

The RHA family of fillers utilizes resilient technology and a gentle manufacturing process to most closely mimic the long chains of hyaluronic acid (HA) sugar molecules that are naturally found in the skin. With age, and over time, your own natural HA breaks down, and the face can appear more sharp, angular, dehydrated, and hollow. The RHA fillers are not designed for a highly augmented or sharp appearance. It is perfect to give patients who are looking to look refreshed with subtle recontouring, smooth curves, and softening of wrinkles that still integrates and moves completely naturally with your own collagen.

The improvements with RHA fillers are seen immediately with very little to no swelling and downtime. Over the next weeks, the areas will continue to settle, soften, and give the skin a long lasting smoother and more hydrated appearance.

RHA fillers come in different thicknesses and properties through RHA 1-4, allowing it to be customized for almost any area including:

  • Softly enhancing and lifting the apple of the cheeks
  • Blurring and filling the nasolabial folds or smile lines
  • Address lips and fine lines around the lips
  • Recontour sunken areas around the eyes, nose or chin
  • Resmoothing areas like the forehead and temples
  • Rejuvenating highly expressive areas of the face without any lumpiness
  • Giving the hands a hydrated, more youthful appearance

Common Questions:

When will I see results?

Results are immediately seen! There may be minimal swelling, but the RHA products are unique in that they swell less than other products. Bruising or redness in the areas treated can last a few hours on the day in more sensitive individuals, but tinted moisturizers can typically cover it up!

Does it hurt?

Numbing creams, ice rollers, and vibrational distraction can be used before and during all filler procedures at The Derm Institute. Dr. Chiu will often employ a needle-less “microcannula” technique in more sensitive areas to minimize any discomfort or pain. Most clients find fillers comfortable procedures with minimal to no downtime. For those apprehensive to injections, Pro-Nox Nitrous Oxide System is a great solution for pain and anxiety relief.

There are so many different fillers, how do I choose?

All fillers have their own specific characteristics in stretch, thickness, lifting capacity, softness, and consistency. Dr. Annie Chiu is a Board-Certified Dermatologist who specializes in injectable fillers and utilizes all the different fillers to create the most balanced, natural, and harmonious outcomes. For Dr. Chiu, every filler is like a slightly different paintbrush, and they are all unique in which is best customized to every individual and area they are being used. It is our job to guide you in what fillers will optimize the results you are looking for.

How long will results last?

Duration of treatment results depends on the product used and area injected, but typically fillers last between 12-24 months.

What happens if I don’t get retreated with fillers, will my skin sag more?

Not at all, this is a myth! Your body very gradually reabsorbs the fillers and your wrinkles and folds will return to baseline. It does not worsen any wrinkles with use. Some studies show there may even be a collagen boosting effect long term even after the fillers are resorbed.

What if I hate the results and want to reverse them?

Very very rarely are patients unsatisfied with their filler treatment at The Derm Institute because our clinic is considered an expert destination for injectables like Botox and fillers.  Dr. Chiu’s unique, expert, careful, and natural aesthetic has the ultimate goal of giving a rejuvenated appearance, but being undetectable in where products were used. However, there are those rare circumstances where Dr. Chiu’s expertise is needed to help patients who have had fillers injected poorly or too superficially by an outside clinic with inexperienced practitioners. Hyaluronic acid fillers including all the RHA fillers can be easily reversed and dissolved in less than 24 hours and your skin will return to baseline. Radiesse and Sculptra are not reversible, but Dr. Chiu can help you evaluate problematic cases and work with you to find the best resolution.
