How is RHA different?
The RHA collection is FDA-approved for dynamic lines, wrinkles, and folds—it’s the only hyaluronic acid-based filler that’s approved for dynamic lines. RHA’s manufacturing process differs from conventional filler.
The gentle process includes minimal chemical modifications, creating a hyaluronic acid that more closely resembles the natural HA found in your skin already. When your provider injects this into precise areas in precise amounts, it creates a natural look that improves volume and structure.

The injections were painless and I didn’t have any bruising, migrating, or any other adverse reactions. The results were visible a couple of days later — and they are impressive!

Ease your injection anxiety
Topical numbing creams provide effective pain relief for moderately uncomfortable skin treatments.
Pronox is a 50/50 mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen. Often called “laughing gas,” it relieves anxiety and pain.
For a deeper level of numbing, we can utilize lidocaine injections.
Caring for your filler injections
Following our pre-care and post-care advice helps ensure successful results from your filler injection.
Tell us if you have previously had to endure facial cold sores or herpes break-outs. We can prescribe medication to minimize the chances and duration of a possible break-out.
Please tell us when scheduling if you know you bruise easily, and we can make suggestions for products to take beforehand to reduce the risk of bruising. For example, eating fresh pineapple a week prior to your appointment can help reduce the likelihood of bruising.
Try to eat a small snack before your appointment. Having food in your stomach during a filler injection will help prevent you from feeling light-headed or faintish.
Consuming blood thinners for 5 days before your treatment. The most likely products patients would take include aspirin, St. John’s wort, fish oil, vitamin E, and alcoholic beverages (these are all anti-coagulators and will increase the likelihood of bruising and bleeding at the injection site).
Scheduling your treatment within 3 weeks of any big event. Any time your skin breaks, there is a chance of bruising or swelling. Make sure to give your body plenty of healing time before a big event in case this occurs.
Undergoing any cosmetic injections if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Coming to the appointment with any facial products applied. Some of the things you want to avoid before Sculptra injections are makeup, moisturizer, and sunscreen (though if you have to come in with these on, we will wash your face).
Use cold compresses like ice packs that help reduce bruising and swelling.
Limit the levels of heat your skin experiences within 24 hours of your injections. This includes sun exposure and things like heat lamps or tanning beds.
Consider adding an extra pillow under your head when going to sleep, as added elevation can help reduce swelling.
Make sure to stay hydrated and drink lots of water, as this will help everything work to its full capacity.
Remember to ask about follow-up appointments!
Contact us if you’re experiencing any severe side effects after your appointment. Fevers or chills, discolorations around areas or areas warm to the touch, and severe pains are all issues that require immediate attention.
Applying a lot of pressure when using a compress against your skin.
Engaging in aerobic activities for 24 hours after injection treatments. Although extremely rare, you do not want any product to migrate from its injection site.
Sleeping flat on your face (if you can help it) for 3 to 4 days after your treatment.
Scheduling a dental treatment until 2 weeks after your procedure.
RHA Collection FAQs
Dynamic fillers are especially resilient and designed to move with your facial dynamics. You make thousands of micro-expressions every single day and, in certain areas especially, it can be more difficult for traditional hyaluronic acid fillers to adapt.
Filler injections are considered a fairly comfortable and easy procedure. We can use numbing agents if you’re concerned about discomfort or have anxiety about needles. The needles used for filler are very fine and feel like a small pinch as they’re injected.
