Dermal fillers replace lost volume beneath your skin, thereby replenishing the look of youthfully full, firm, elastic skin. While we all know and love those tried-and-true dermal filler brands that have been around since the early 2000s, the introduction of RHA fillers through a partnership between Revance and Swiss manufacturer TEOXANE SA offers a type of filler that moves along with the natural movements of your face, resulting in a beautiful, subtle, natural form of facial rejuvenation.

What Are RHA Fillers?
RHA stands for Resilient Hyaluronic Acid. RHA fillers work like other hyaluronic acid fillers: They replace lost volume under the skin with HA, which mimics a natural form of HA found in your body. RHA injectables mimic natural HA even more closely than other options.
The gentle manufacturing process used to make RHA fillers results in longer chains of HA. These longer chains are very similar to what exists in your body already, so the filler acts a lot like natural HA when you smile, laugh, frown, or otherwise express yourself with your face.
Which RHA Filler is Right for Me?
RHA are the only FDA-approved fillers for dynamic wrinkles and lines on your face. There are three formulations:
- RH2. Ideal for perioral lines above the upper lip, and for lip augmentation. RH2 is also used for lines on the mid-face/cheek area.
- RH3. Used for nasolabial folds around the nose, and creases around the mouth.
- RH4. Great for deep folds and creases around the mouth and nose, as well as wrinkles in other areas of the lower face and along the jaw.
RHA can also be used on tear troughs, under-eye circles, and crow’s feet. Our experienced team will help you design a plan with the right filler or combination of fillers to achieve the outcomes you have in mind.
RHA Fillers Frequently Asked Questions
How is RHA Different?
These fillers are manufactured with a process that is different from most other types of HA fillers. It results in a softer facial filler that moves with your face. You won’t look obviously over-filled or artificial, just naturally rejuvenated.
How Long Do RHA Fillers Last?
The RHA Collection of fillers provides immediate results that last up to 15 months. Individual results may vary.
Is RHA Filler Safe?
Yes, these fillers have a similar safety profile to other HA fillers. The most commonly reported side effects include:
- Pain or tenderness
If you do experience these temporary side effects, they should resolve within 24-72 hours.
Is There Downtime?
There is minimal to no downtime after RHA fillers. To reduce your risk of side effects, you should take a break from strenuous exercise and alcohol for 24 hours. Stay out of direct sun exposure for at least a day. You may decide to take the day off from work or other activities, although most people have no problem getting right back to their routine.
