RHA fillers in Richmond, VA

Revolutionizing Aesthetic Treatments with Natural Results

At Richmond Plastic Surgeons, we understand that the choice to undergo any cosmetic procedure is a deeply personal one. That's why we are proud to offer the RHA® Collection as part of our suite of filler options. Our experienced specialists are committed to working with you to identify the most suitable product from the collection to achieve the results you desire while maintaining the highest standards of care. What’s more, we were one of (if not the first) practices in the Richmond area that offered this innovative anti-aging treatment.

What is The RHA® Collection?

The RHA® Collection offers a diverse range of dermal fillers specifically designed to complement your natural facial movements. Throughout the day, our faces make countless expressions, developing fine lines from actions like smiling, frowning, and talking.

Unlike traditional fillers that can leave the skin looking stiff, The RHA® Collection is formulated to maintain a smooth appearance, moving in sync with your expressions to ensure your complexion looks refined both at rest and in motion. Additionally, these fillers are enriched with natural hyaluronic acid, which mimics the hyaluronic acid present in your skin to provide moisture, volume, and elasticity that diminish with age.

The Science Behind the RHA® Collection

RHA®, which stands for Resilient Hyaluronic Acid, is a state-of-the-art range of dermal fillers featuring the following technology:

  • RHA® fillers are designed to be stretchable and durable, maintaining their shape and integrity during facial movements
  • Their resilience allows the fillers to spring back to their original state post-movement
  • RHA® products undergo a gentle manufacturing process with fewer chemical modifications
  • This helps to preserve the natural hyaluronic acid structure, mimicking the HA found in your skin
  • The unique cross-linking process results in a softer gel that flows easily and integrates into your tissues for a seamless appearance
  • Once injected, RHA® fillers meld with your tissue, promoting a smooth transition and reducing the risk of lumps or irregular texture

A Comprehensive Collection for Your Different Dynamic Needs

Designed to meet your unique aesthetic desires, the RHA® fillers in Richmond offer tailored treatments that provide long-lasting enhancement for dynamic wrinkles and folds.

RHA Redensity™

RHA® 2 and RHA® 3

Benefits of RHA® Fillers

  • Natural-Looking Results: The RHA® Collection is designed to mimic the natural hyaluronic acid found in your skin. This creates subtle and smooth outcomes that enhance your features without drastic changes.
  • Long-Lasting Effects: Due to their resilience, the visible improvements from RHA® fillers can endure for up to 15 months. You'll enjoy a more youthful look with fewer maintenance treatments.
  • Immediate Results: Upon injection, you'll notice an instant volume improvement and line reduction. These effects can continue to improve over the following weeks as the filler settles into your skin.
  • Adapts to Facial Movement: Unlike some other fillers, RHA® fillers are designed to closely resemble Hyaluronic Acid found naturally in the skin to seamlessly adapt to your facial movement. This flexibility means your face will look soft and natural, whether laughing, frowning, or smiling.
  • Comfortable Treatment Experience: With lidocaine integrated into the formula, RHA® fillers offer a more comfortable injection experience. This built-in anesthetic helps minimize discomfort during the procedure.
  • Versatile Applications: RHA® fillers effectively smooth wrinkles, sculpt lips, and enhance facial contours. This versatility allows for a customized approach to address your specific aesthetic concerns.
  • Good Safety Profile: Featuring a hyaluronic acid base, a substance naturally present in your body, RHA® fillers have a strong safety record. Adverse reactions are generally minimal and comparable to other non-permanent fillers.

Checklist: Are RHA® Fillers Right for You?

  • You're bothered by dynamic wrinkles that remain even when your face is at rest
  • You're over 22 years old, the FDA-approved age for treatment
  • You prefer a more natural approach to facial rejuvenation
  • You're not pregnant or breastfeeding, as the effects on pregnancy have not been thoroughly studied

What to Expect Before, During, and After

Consultation at Richmond Plastic Surgeons

During your initial consultation, you will discuss your aesthetic goals and be evaluated to determine if the RHA® Collection is suitable for your needs. We will explain the differences between the RHA® fillers and how they address various concerns and assess your facial anatomy to create a personalized treatment plan.


The RHA® filler injection process is minimally invasive and relatively quick, often completed within 30 minutes to an hour. Your skin will be cleaned, and a topical anesthetic may be applied. Next, one of our providers carefully injects the filler beneath your skin, focusing on the predetermined areas.

Recovery and Results

  • Expect mild side effects such as swelling, redness, or bruising, which typically resolve within a few days
  • Follow specific aftercare instructions from your Richmond Plastic Surgeons professional to ensure optimal healing
  • Your results will become more apparent as any swelling subsides
  • You may notice an immediate improvement in the treated areas with results lasting up to 15 months, depending on the specific RHA® product used
  • You can also expect natural-looking outcomes as RHA® fillers are designed to mimic the natural hyaluronic acid in the skin

What’s the difference between fillers and neurotoxins?

Neurotoxins or neuromodulators help smooth out frown, forehead, and crow’s feet lines on the upper face, while fillers add volume and soften wrinkles and folds on the lower face. When you see a provider, they'll usually assess both areas before recommending any treatments. Neurotoxin and filler treatments might be included in a personalized plan to help you achieve desired results.

Why is a dynamic filler important?

HA fillers can restore their original shape after being manipulated, stretched, bent, or compressed in treated areas. They require a high level of resilience, especially in dynamic facial regions like around the mouth, to accommodate the various micro-movements we make throughout the day, such as smiling, laughing, and talking. The RHA® Collection is specially crafted to meet the demands of facial dynamics, ensuring a natural appearance at rest and in motion.

When will I see the results, and how long will they last?

The effects of dermal filler injections are immediate.

Results from the RHA® Collection of fillers generally last up to 15 months for wrinkles and folds and up to 1 year for lipstick lines. Extensive research has been conducted on the RHA® Collection, demonstrating the clinical effectiveness and safety of RHA® 2, RHA® 3, and RHA® 4 in two 15-month studies for wrinkles and folds.

Additionally, the clinical effectiveness and safety of RHA Redensity™ were demonstrated in a 12-month study for lipstick lines, with 2/3 of participants still experiencing improvement at 12 months.

How is the RHA® Collection different than conventional fillers?

The RHA® Collection is the sole line of FDA-approved HA fillers designed to address dynamic lines, wrinkles, and folds. It consists of four HA-filler formulations: RHA Redensity™ for delicate lipstick lines, RHA® 2 and RHA® 3 for a soft, natural look in wrinkles and folds, and RHA® 4 for deeper dynamic wrinkles and folds. The collection utilizes a gentle manufacturing process to maintain the structure of HA, closely resembling natural HA found in the skin. Developed by the Swiss company TEOXANE, the RHA® Collection has been widely used internationally since 2015 and represents the latest advancement in HA-filler technology. This innovative line was created by Madame Valerie Taupin, co-creator of Juvéderm® and founder of TEOXANE, who directed her research team to develop an HA filler that closely mimics HA in the skin, resulting in the cutting-edge RHA® Collection.

Do RHA® Fillers hurt?

Before administering the RHA® Collection, your provider may apply a local anesthetic to numb the area. The filler is then injected into the desired location using a fine needle, often described as feeling like a pinch. Following the injection, you may experience temporary redness, swelling, and bruising in the treated area for a few days. These common side effects typically subside within 7-10 days.

Why is the RHA® Collection only available at exclusive providers?

The RHA® Collection is exclusively offered in specific practices known for delivering outstanding patient results and outcomes.
