What is the RHA Collection of Fillers?

RHA Collection fillers are formulated for reducing or eliminating lines and wrinkles in areas of the face that experience a lot of dynamic movement. Developed by Swiss scientists over decades of study and research, RHA Collection is based on hyaluronic acid (“HA”) — a compound found naturally in the body that aids in repairing and restoring skin cells.

Anti-wrinkle treatments using injectable HA gels have been performed for years and work well, but these Swiss researchers built upon HA to discover “resilient” HA by manipulating the compound with innovative cross-linking techniques. This allows the effects of RHA to last longer, while also providing improved, more natural-looking results. It’s truly amazing science!

One of the newest on the market, RHA Redensity is FDA-Approved for dermal and superficial dermal injection of dynamic perioral rhytids, also known as vertical lip lines or “smoker’s lines.” What makes this filler stand above the rest in the treatment of these wrinkles is that it fills these very small wrinkles without being too bulky, and without any added lip augmentation.

The Bengtson Center is one of the first practices in Michigan to launch the RHA Collection. We’re proud to offer this exciting new treatment to our patients looking for a safe, natural-looking way to reduce or eliminate fine lines and wrinkles.

As one of the first to launch, this makes us the perfect destination for people from all across Michigan looking to achieve a more youthful appearance. Our team of aestheticians and board-certified plastic surgeons have the experience and skill to provide you with the best possible results. We've used RHA Redensity since the beginning, worked on perfecting our technique, and have seen amazing results in our patients.

What Are the Advantages of RHA Fillers?

Collagens, transplanted fat, and biosynthetic polymers are common options for dermal fillers. While they are all safe and effective to different degrees, some require several treatments and take months for results to appear. Others can provide immediate results, but will only last a few months.

On the other hand, RHA Collection fillers can provide fast results that last more than a year. Because RHA enhances all the advantages of HA, it’s the superior option in many cases. The manufacturing process for RHA is gentle and preserves the natural structure of the HA, meaning it more accurately replicates the function of the HA naturally found in your skin.

You’ll not only see smoother, younger skin right after your treatment, but your appearance will look and feel perfectly natural. You won’t look like you’ve had work done... you’ll just look incredible!

Am I a Candidate for RHA Fillers?

The RHA fillers in the RHA Collection are an excellent option if you're seeking help with:

  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Deep smile and marionette lines around the nose and mouth
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Worry lines on the forehead
  • Facial scars including those from acne, burns, or other wounds
  • Lip borders that need redefinition
  • Depressions in the cheeks

Good candidates for RHA Collection treatments are also in generally good health and don’t smoke. They are also determined to maintain a good skincare routine, and they also have a positive outlook and realistic goals for the outcome of their procedure.

The RHA FillerProcedure

Each RHA Collection filler treatment in Grand Rapids at the Bengtson Center is highly customized to each patient’s needs. During your consultation, we will listen closely to your concerns and answer any questions you may have. Together, we’ll create a personalized treatment plan that’s just right for you.

When you come in for your RHA filler treatment, you’ll be greeted by our highly professional staff and treated like family. All of our filler procedures are outpatient procedures, so you’ll be free to go home immediately following your treatment. In most cases, they take less than an hour.

First, we’ll apply a light topical anesthetic to the targeted area to minimize discomfort. Then, our injection specialist will use a needle and syringe to inject the RHA gel into your skin. The exact procedure may vary depending on your needs, but injections are usually performed multiple times around the site to ensure even, balanced results.

If you’re uncomfortable at any time during the procedure, we’ll make adjustments to make it right. Our priority is your comfort and getting you the results you desire.

RHA Filler Recovery & Results

Once the treatment is finished, you’ll be able to go home and rest. You may notice some slight redness or tenderness at and around the injection sites for the first day or two. A cold compress or gentle massage can be helpful with any swelling, and most patients can manage any discomfort without medication.

You will be able to resume normal activities immediately, but it’s recommended that you wait 24-48 hours before doing anything strenuous, like exercise or heavy lifting. This ensures that any bruising or swelling will be minimal.

Once your recovery is complete, your results should be readily apparent. The deep lines or wrinkles that were there before will be significantly reduced, if not eliminated. Hollow spots should be filled in, giving you a balanced, healthy glow.

RHA Collection fillers have been clinically proven to last up to 15 months. At the Bengtson Center we strive to give you the best RHA fillers Grand Rapids has to offer. It will always be important that you keep your skin healthy and protected from the sun and environmental damage to make sure your results last as long as possible.

How long do RHA fillers last?

The RHA line of dermal fillers has been clinically shown to last up to 15 months.

Is RHA better than JUVÉDERM?

There is no “better” filler, as different fillers are better for different areas and purposes. However, RHA is a newer generation of filler that is specifically designed to mimic the properties of your natural skin, making it an excellent choice for subtle, natural-looking results.

Is there any downtime after an RHA filler treatment?

There is no significant downtime after an RHA filler treatment. You will be able to resume normal activities immediately, but it’s recommended that you wait 24-48 hours before doing anything strenuous, like exercise or heavy lifting.

What are the side effects of RHA fillers?

The most common side effects of RHA fillers are temporary and include redness, swelling, bruising, tenderness, and itching at the injection site. These side effects typically resolve on their own within a week or two.

What is the cost of RHA fillers?

The cost of RHA fillers will vary depending on the specific treatment you receive and your personal goals. During your consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan and provide you with a detailed cost estimate.
