Hyaluronic acid fillers are widely considered the best injectables to reduce fine lines and enhance facial volume. However, until recently, hyaluronic acid-based fillers could not efficiently fill dynamic wrinkles and folds in regions with excessive facial movements, such as the nasolabial folds and frown lines. But Revance and Teoxane have come together to formulate the world’s first and only FDA-approved HA fillers for dynamic facial wrinkles and nasolabial folds.
Dr. Paul Leong is the first plastic surgeon in Pittsburgh to offer this groundbreaking HA filler to patients who want to smooth out and reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles without the dreaded “frozen” expression.
It’s your face. Trust it to a specialist.
What is RHA?
The RHA Collection is a range of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers with a unique composition that makes them capable of treating dynamic wrinkles and nasolabial folds. RHA fillers are injected into the mid-to-deep dermis region to treat moderate to severe dynamic wrinkles, facial lines, and nasolabial folds without unwanted aesthetic complications. They smooth out your skin while allowing you to emote naturally.
How is RHA different from other HA fillers?
Hyaluronic acid-based fillers enhance your facial volume and fill up wrinkles by supplementing the skin’s natural hyaluronic acid components. Injecting pure or natural hyaluronic acid into your skin doesn’t work because your body metabolizes it quickly, making it ineffective. As such, most dermal fillers rely on chemical modifications to stabilize the hyaluronic acid so that it can stay in your body and produce results for several months. While those chemical modifications increase the treatment’s longevity, they prevent it from mimicking natural hyaluronic acid, making it ineffective against dynamic wrinkles.
The RHA collection of hyaluronic acid fillers follow a unique manufacturing process that allows them to retain the natural HA structure with limited chemical modification. As such, RHA fillers resemble the natural HA in your skin, making them far more resilient against facial movements. They smooth your skin, including your dynamic wrinkles and nasolabial folds, without affecting your facial expressions. Furthermore, RHA fillers haven’t sacrificed durability and longevity to achieve such a natural composition. On the contrary, RHA fillers are some of the longest-lasting HA fillers available, producing results that last up to 15 months.

Who is a good candidate for RHA fillers?
During your consultation, Dr. Paul Leong will carefully examine your facial skin, review your medical history, and discuss your cosmetic expectations to determine if you’re a suitable candidate for RHA fillers.
