- JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC adds shape to the lower and/or upper lip while also helping to correct the appearance of fine lines below the nose. The improvements usually are visible for up to a year.
- JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® adds to the dimension of the cheeks to help reverse age-related volume loss in the mid-face. Results have been known to last up to two years.
IS JUVÉDERM RIGHT FOR ME?
Ideal candidates for JUVÉDERM injectable wrinkle treatments are men and women who have facial wrinkles and lines they’d like to correct. This treatment may also benefit those with naturally thin cheeks and lips or age-related volume loss in those areas. JUVÉDERM injections at Arizona Skin Institute can be fantastic if you want to rejuvenate your appearance without the expense and recovery time of facial cosmetic surgery (like eyelid lifts, brow lifts, facelifts, or lip implants).
JUVÉDERM injections generally take about 15 – 30 minutes, depending on how many areas are being treated. We’ll clean your skin and mark the injection spots. All JUVÉDERM formulas contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic that helps to minimize discomfort. Following your procedure, you’ll be free to return to your normal routine; however, you should avoid strenuous activity, like exercise, for at least a day. You should be cautious not to touch your face after your injections so as to avoid pushing the filler into unintended areas.

WHAT IS RHA?
RHA or Resilient Hyaluronic Acid Fillers are the first and only FDA-approved dermal HA fillers to treat dynamic facial wrinkles and folds. They are proven to be helpful to soften, and correct facial contours to result in a more young and rested appearance. RHA® Resilient Hyaluronic Acid® can be effectively used to treat conditions like lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive facial expressions and volume loss, including forehead and glabellar lines, nasolabial folds, and crow’s feet.
As we age, wrinkles form deep in the skin. Therefore, it is difficult to treat dynamic wrinkles. Thanks to technological developments, the release of RHA® Resilient Hyaluronic Acid® has made a difference to patients to treat wrinkles.
WHAT IS RHA RESILIENT HYALURONIC ACID?
RHA Resilient Hyaluronic Acid, the best choice for patients seeking healthy, radiant, wrinkle-free skin, is the next level of hyaluronic acid, a naturally-produced acid in the skin that retains moisture. It also boosts collagen production, which is a protein that supports the structure of the skin.
HOW DOES RHA WORK?
RHA® is outlined to move with the face, targeting facial folds and dynamic wrinkles and the areas of the face that move often. The unique combination of stretch and dynamic strength of RHA® makes it resilient to adjust to the demands of our moving faces.
There are three formulations of the RHA® collection. They can be used independently or in combination with each other to target specific layers of the skin to reduce moderate to severe wrinkles and folds.
- For moderate wrinkles and folds, RHA® 2 is injected into the mid-to-deep dermis.
- For moderate-to-severe wrinkles and folds, RHA® 3 is injected into the mid-to-deep dermis.
- For moderate-to-severe wrinkles and folds, RHA® 4 is injected into the deep dermis to the superficial subcutaneous tissue.
BENEFITS OF RHA
RHA can help in the treatment of the conditions like:
- Dynamic wrinkles and Crow’s feet.
- Nasolabial folds.
- Chin lines.
- Fine lines around the mouth.
- Marionette lines.
The treatment usually takes around 15-25 minutes, depending on the size and location of the treatment area. A topical anesthetic will be applied 30 minutes before your treatment. The RHA® filler is injected into the desired areas using tiny needles or a blunt-tipped cannula. Because of the effect of anesthesia and since these injections also contain an anesthetic medicine named lidocaine, you may feel numbness around the parts of your face in and around the treatment area for a few hours.
IS RHA SAFE?
At Arizona Skin Institute in Surprise, AZ, near Phoenix, safety is always our top priority. We take all safety and hygiene measures at our office while doing RHA® treatments to ensure an excellent patient experience. After the treatment, patients have little to no downtime, with side effects being mild to moderate.
