The Resilient Hyaluronic Acid (RHA) Collection from Revance consists of four FDA-approved dermal hyaluronic acid fillers that provide volume to specific areas of the face. These fillers are unique because they work more closely with the natural movements of the skin.

Following their Resilient Hyaluronic Acid dermal filler session at Chau Plastic Surgery, near Detroit, patients enjoy natural-looking facial enhancements.

Facial Rejuvenation With Resilient Hyaluronic Acid Fillers in Detroit

The combination of timeless beauty and the science of innovation has led to the creation of RHA fillers. Patients benefit from the unique ability of RHA fillers to provide remarkable facial enhancement results that can appear more natural than seen with other traditional dermal fillers.

The wrinkles and lines that the injection specialists at Chau Plastic Surgery can address with RHA dermal fillers include the vertical creases that form between the eyebrows (i.e., frown lines or 11’s) and forehead lines. In addition, RHA fillers can address the wrinkles that develop around the mouth (i.e.,marionette lines and perioral dynamic wrinkles).

What Makes RHA Fillers Unique?

Creating an RHA dermal filler requires the use of a highly advanced cross-linking process. This process preserves the natural structure of the hyaluronic acid. Preserving HA’s structure allows the filler to move harmoniously with the face.

Benefits of Resilient Hyaluronic Acid Fillers in Detroit

As time passes, people tend to lose volume in their face. This volume loss makes the face look more aged and can be associated with the development of some fine lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers provide patients with a nonsurgical option for face and skin rejuvenation. Using revolutionary fillers like Resilient Hyaluronic Acid, injector specialists can address many of the facial changes that result from aging and sun exposure. Following an RHA treatment, patients appear more youthful.

The benefits of RHA dermal filler treatments:

  • RHA dermal filler treatments deliver results that appear completely natural.
  • Resilient Hyaluronic Acid fillers can blend seamlessly with facial contours, providing a result that subtly enhances the patient’s facial features, without looking overdone.
  • These fillers provide long-lasting results.
  • Results are visible directly following treatment.
  • The dynamic quality of RHA dermal fillers in Detroit allows patients to rejuvenate their face while maintaining their lively expressions and refined facial appearance.

What Are Dynamic Facial Expressions?

Dynamic facial expressions include smiles, frowns and raised eyebrows. Following their Resilient Hyaluronic Acid filler treatment in Detroit, patients can continue creating all of these dynamic facial expressions without concerns because the results look completely natural.

Resilient Hyaluronic Acid filler treatments offer patients minimal discomfort:

  • To minimize the amount of discomfort a patient feels during a treatment with RHA, patients can receive a topical anesthetic. In addition, the Resilient Hyaluronic Acid solution contains a local anesthetic (e.g., Lidocaine).
  • A common side effect patients experience following treatment with a traditional dermal filler can be bruising and inflammation.

These treatment sessions are quick, usually lasting from 15 to 30 minutes.

When Do RHA Filler Results Become Evident?

Which Parts of the Face Can Revance’s RHA Collection of Fillers Treat?

There are four versions of RHA filler in this collection. The consistency of a Resilient Hyaluronic Acid filler determines the depth at which the injector administers it. The consistency of the filler also signifies which dynamic wrinkles, lines and folds it can treat.

RHA Redensity

This filler is extremely lightweight. Injection specialists use RHA 1 to smooth the tiny vertical lines that develop around the mouth. RHA 1 may also help reduce the visibility of tear trough lines and fine lines.


RHA 2 addresses dynamic wrinkles and lines. It can also soften the lines that run from the base of the nose to the corners of the mouth (i.e., nasolabial folds).


RHA 3 is used to provide more volume to specific areas of the face and to soften the lines that run from the base of the nose to the corners of the mouth.


This filler is used to restore volume to the midface and cheekbones.

How Do RHA Fillers Differ From the Other HA Fillers in Detroit?

The other HA fillers have hyaluronic acid chains that are much shorter than the chains in Resilient Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers.

What Are the Differences Between the Fillers in Revance’s RHA Collection?

The amount of crosslinking between Revance’s four Resilient Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers varies. RHA dermal filler four has the most crosslinking, and RHA Redensity has the least.

Why Do Traditional Dermal Fillers Have Shorter HA Chains?

As part of their manufacturing process, chains of hyaluronic acid are pressed through a grid. While moving through this grid, the HA is cross-linked with other agents (e.g., Butanediol Diglycidyl Ether). Another manufacturing option is cooking the hyaluronic acid at high temperatures before crosslinking it with other agents. This cooking process, breaks down the hyaluronic acid’s chain.

What Does Crosslinking Accomplish?

Crosslinking hyaluronic acid with other agents enhances the filler’s durability and assists with its stability.

The Unique Manufacturing Process of RHA Fillers Helps Preserve the Integrity of Their HA Chains

The manufacturer cooks HA at lower temperatures, which maintains the integrity of the HA chains. This allows the Resilient Hyaluronic Acid chains to be longer and very similar to the natural HA chains in the body.

Processing Defines an HA Filler’s Functionality

Traditional dermal fillers help to treat facial lines, wrinkles, folds and volume loss. RHA fillers can offer the same results with the added flexibility to the soft tissue.

Resilient Hyaluronic Acid fillers are more pliable than their traditional counterparts. Furthermore, since Resilient Hyaluronic Acid fillers are very similar to the HA that is already present in the body, they tend to follow facial movements well. These abilities make RHA fillers ideal for treating dynamic wrinkles and creases on the face.
