Facial Fillers

revance logo    Introducing —RHA® Collection Facial Fillers from Revance Therapeutics.

RHA® Revance Collection now offers several resilient clear gel injectable fillers used today by men and women to soften deep folds and reduce wrinkles.

Exclusively at GlowMD Laser MedSpa! We are now offering a new family of fillers by Revance Therapeutics called RHA 2, RHA 3, and RHA 4. The trio of fillers has entered doctors’ offices stateside, and while their debut here makes them new to us, they’ve been available in Europe for more than five years. GlowMD Laser MedSpa is one of the very first to offer Revance RHA in Virginia!

RHA® stands for resilient hyaluronic acid. It is an effective and natural way to replace your skin’s natural Hyaluronic acid loss over time, bringing back its volume and softening facial wrinkles and folds in areas such as cheeks, under the eyes, and corners of the mouth.

This smooth gel substance, primarily made out of hyaluronic acid, has many cosmetic benefits to fit each patient’s needs. RHA2, 3 & 4 can replenish lost volume in the cheeks and lips, smooth, correct, and soften deep folds, wrinkles, and facial lines, and shape and contour the face and cheeks.

Resilience is an important quality for fillers placed in dynamic areas of the face, including the cheeks, around the eyes, and the mouth. The resilience in RHA dynamic fillers not only provides a more natural result as you move your face, but the hyaluronic acid also takes longer to metabolize. Because the RHA products move with your face and more closely resemble the hyaluronic acid that naturally exists in your body, it will take longer for this product to break down, producing results that last longer than traditional fillers.

GlowMD Laser MedSpa offers free consultations to give patients the time to discuss concerns and allows our professional staff to focus on their personal goals. We evaluate the main areas of concern and work together to identify where the patient will receive the most benefit and provide a plan. Once an RHA® treatment plan has been determined, the patient has the option of moving forward with the plan provided.

Results are seen immediately after the procedure with better results a week or so later. There is minimal downtime associated with RHA®. Patients are typically very happy with the immediate results that fillers provide. There is some potential for swelling and bruising, but it should last no longer than a week. Cool packs are provided if needed. Treatment sessions take about 30 minutes.

Fillers are injectables designed to replace volume, add contour, diminish lines, reduce asymmetries and achieve a liquid facelift. JUVÉDERM® fillers are the top filler choice of Dr. Terri P Morris and her associates. The JUVÉDERM® fillers are comprised of hyaluronic acid which is a natural sugar complex found in our skin tissues.

Being an injectable filler, JUVÉDERM® fills volume loss while BOTOX® Cosmetic relaxes lines on the forehead, between the eyes, and crow’s feet.  At glowMD Laser MedSpa, we consult with patients first to understand their cosmetic goals and then carefully plan a goal that is suitable for them.

During treatment, the JUVÉDERM® is safely injected them into the desired areas of the face. JUVÉDERM® is a quick and easy procedure with almost no pain and there is virtually no recovery period required. However, just like with any other type of injectable, there may be slight bruising and swelling at the injection site. Fortunately, these are the two most common side effects.

As we age, our skin loses volume from certain parts of the face and this can cause features of the face to sink and droop. JUVÉDERM® has all the right qualities to treat these areas. Below are some common places where JUVÉDERM® is used:

  • Midface: to restore volume loss
  • Lips: to provide hydration, provide structure to thin lips, and plump for fuller lips
  • Vertical Lip Lines: that extend off the lip border around the mouth
  • Nasolabial Folds: lines that run from the nose to the sides of the mouth
  • Marionette Lines: creases that stretch from the sides of the mouth to the jawline
  • Weak chin: to add contour and volume to a weak or recessed chin

Is Juvederm safe?

The FDA noted that while JUVÉDERM® is safe for use, some patients in clinical trials experienced side effects of mild redness, swelling, tenderness, lumpiness, bruising, or itching at the sites of the injections. Overall, patients love fillers! You will achieve instant results and a very nice improvement.

Dermal fillers correct the signs of aging, but this treatment cannot stop the aging process altogether. To maintain wrinkle-free skin, you will need to commit to multiple injections, or the face will return to its original state. Unlike a facelift, this treatment does not remove sagging skin. Dermal fillers can be used in combination with Botox injection.

Restylane® is a range of Hyaluronic Acid based dermal filler products which safely and effectively reduce nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and wrinkles. Restylane is a dermal filler designed to restore volume beneath the skin using hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a substance that is naturally found in your skin and is plentiful when you are younger. As we age and lose hyaluronic acid, our skin becomes more likely to wrinkle or fold. Fillers replenish your skin’s supply and fill lost volume.
It also adds volume to smooth out diminishing jowls and improve jaw lines and eye areas as well as improve the overall skin appearance.

Restylane® is an internationally leading product family for aesthetic beauty treatments. The products are used for smoothing out wrinkles and lines, filling out and shaping lips, defining facial contours, and improving the quality of the skin.
