Minimally and non-invasive treatments are now easier, more convenient, and more effective than ever before. As the technologies and studies behind them improve and advance, there are also many choices, depending on the aesthetic issues you are trying to treat and the goals you want to reach.
For many years, dermal injectables and fillers such as BOTOX®, Juvederm®, and others provided great results in reducing or reversing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. These fillers work by either blocking the signals that cause facial muscles to contract or by filling in lost volume from beneath the skin using hyaluronic acid (HA) or other compounds.
While many people have achieved great results lasting up to 18 months, some have found they cannot show facial expressions. Though modern techniques and formulations have reduced the likelihood of the appearance of a “frozen face,” many people want to have more movement with their facial muscles without increasing lines and wrinkles from forming.
New research and technology have led to the development of resilient hyaluronic acid (RHA) dermal fillers. Like the original formulations, RHA dermal fillers rely on HA to absorb nearby water molecules once injected below the skin, increasing volume from within and decreasing the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face.
Where the RHA dermal fillers differ from the prior “generations” is their ability to dynamically move with facial muscle contractions and movements while being able to return to their original position. This allows the ability to still show facial expression while giving the skin more strength and the ability to rebound.
These new formulations are also closer in composition to the natural HA created by your body. This gives an even more natural appearance while providing the desired results.
