What is RHA®?
Dr. Knott offers RHA® to her patients because it’s a safe, effective anti-aging treatment. It directly addresses one of the most noticeable signs of aging: volume loss. Over time, as your body produces less collagen, you lose volume throughout your face. This leaves you with deeper facial folds, thinning lips, hollow cheeks, and more.
Fortunately, RHA® offers you a way to turn back the clock. With this quick, effective treatment, Dr. Knott restores volume wherever you need it, smoothing and plumping your skin and rejuvenating your appearance. She takes a conservative approach to give you natural results that help you look youthful but never filled or fake.
How does RHA® work?
RHA® is made from hyaluronic acid, something that is already present in your skin and helps it stay hydrated. When Dr. Knott injects RHA® into targeted locations on your face, the hyaluronic acid evenly distributes in the area to give you natural-looking results.
Dr. Knott uses RHA® for a variety of treatments, including:
- Adding volume to the cheeks
- Smoothing nasolabial folds
- Reducing the appearance of vertical lip lines
- Plumping lips
In other words, if volume loss left your skin looking folded or sagging, thinned your lips, or compromised the contours of your cheeks, RHA® can work for you.
What should I expect during and after RHA® treatment?
People love RHA® because it’s a quick and convenient treatment. Once you and Dr. Knott discuss your cosmetic goals and agree on the best locations for RHA® treatment on your unique face, the actual treatment takes just minutes.
When scheduling your appointment, please keep in mind bruising and swelling can occur after injection. Please plan accordingly. We do not recommend getting RHA® immediately prior to a big event.
The results from RHA® can last anywhere from a few months to over a year, depending on how quickly your body metabolizes the hyaluronic acid.
