RHA Fillers at PSS in Greenbrae

RHA Fillers are a family of dermal fillers, which are formulated with a unique form of hyaluronic acid (HA). RHA fillers offer many benefits, including providing an immediate lifting effect to the face, and making wrinkles and folds less visible. This type of filler also works to stimulate collagen production with continued use, resulting in a more youthful appearance over time. In addition, RHA fillers are highly biocompatible, and unlikely to cause an allergic reaction. This makes them a safe and effective choice for people looking to reduce wrinkles or add volume to their faces.

About RHA Fillers

The RHA Collection of fillers can create a natural-looking to your beautiful face. Made of a unique form of hyaluronic acid, RHA fillers fit naturally into your facial structure. They are formulated to adapt to your dynamic facial movements for a look that’s stunning at rest, and flawless in motion. In addition, they are designed to break down slowly over time and can be adjusted or removed completely, whenever you want.

The RHA Collection provides a long-lasting solution for moderate to severe wrinkles and folds that occur with age. The results are immediate, with a more youthful, lifted appearance lasting up to one year. In addition to filling in wrinkles and folds, RHA fillers can also be used to contour cheeks and create fuller lips. The filler can create a less gaunt and more rested look. The filler moves naturally so you don’t look “done” or “overfilled.” [1]

RHA fillers offer many advantages over traditional dermal fillers.

  • The hydrating nature of the filler helps to plump the skin, creating a more youthful and healthy-looking complexion.
  • It helps to protect your skin from future damage, as it provides a protective layer of hydration.
  • RHA fillers are much easier to manipulate than traditional dermal fillers, allowing for greater precision when sculpting facial features such as lips and cheeks. 

Overall, RHA fillers are a great option for those looking to increase volume and reduce wrinkles while still maintaining a natural-looking appearance. They can be used alone or in combination with other treatments such as Botox or Exosomes. Speak to our team to schedule a consultation and find out if RHA fillers are right for you.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

HA is a natural sugar found in the body that helps keep skin hydrated and plump. It acts like a sponge, attracting and retaining moisture to keep skin hydrated. As we age, our body’s HA production slows down, which can lead to decreased elasticity and volume in the skin.

RHA fillers contain a unique form of synthetic hyaluronic acid that is designed to be more resistant to degradation, providing longer-lasting results. [2] 

The filler is injected into the skin, plumping and lifting

 the area to create a more youthful appearance. The synthetic hyaluronic acid is also designed to break down slowly over time, allowing for a more gradual and natural-looking effect.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Overall, RHA fillers are extremely safe with few side effects. [2] However, you may experience temporary redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site. These side effects should resolve on their own within a few days to a week. It’s important to work with a qualified healthcare provider who can assess your needs and provide the necessary treatments.

What is the Collection of RHA Fillers?

Because your face is constantly moving, treating facial lines can be difficult. Repetitive movements like laughing and talking create dynamic wrinkles and folds. Fillers can sometimes make the treated area look stiff and unnatural when the face is in motion. The RHA Collection is different. It is designed to adapt to your dynamic facial movements for a natural-looking result that flawlessly transitions from rest to motion.

RHA Redensity

RHA Redensity is a unique filler specifically designed to treat the delicate lip “liner” area of the mouth. The RHA weightless lipstick-line treatment is perfect for reducing dynamic lines around the mouth.

RHA 2 & 3

If you want smooth, soft, and natural-looking skin, our elegantly refined smoothing RHA treatment found in formulations #2 and #3 is perfect for you. RHA 2 and 3 can be used to reduce moderate to severe dynamic wrinkles, and create a more youthful appearance.


Our most advanced RHA formulation is perfect for treating deep folds and wrinkles. The cross-linked hyaluronic acid in RHA 4 creates an effective barrier against future damage while also plumping up the skin with volume. RHA 4 is also a great option for those who want to enhance their facial features, like creating fuller lips or more defined cheekbones.

If you’re considering any type of injectable treatment, it’s important to consult with a qualified provider first.

What to Expect During Your RHA Filler Appointment

RHA fillers can provide a safe, effective solution for those looking to restore their youthful appearance and enjoy long-lasting results. The treatment is virtually painless and requires minimal downtime. Your

injector will start by applying a topical numbing cream to the treatment area before administering the injections. We use the latest techniques and advanced anatomical knowledge in order to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure and the best results.

Once injected, RHA fillers can provide immediate results that last up to 12 months or longer. We will provide thorough aftercare instructions so you can enjoy the best results possible from your RHA filler treatment.

Recovery After Treatment

To avoid compromising the results of your treatment, avoid intense activity. Also avoid direct sunlight, and alcohol for 24 hours afterward. You may also experience mild bruising and swelling, which should subside within a few days.

It’s important to avoid rubbing or massaging the treatment area for several weeks following your procedure in order to prevent the RHA filler from migrating away from its intended site of action.
