What is RHA?
The RHA dermal filler is the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) filler for dynamic wrinkles, those lines that form from muscle contractions, like frowning, smiling, and squinting. RHA is unique in that it adapts to facial movements, which results in a more youthful look that moves naturally. This product is exclusively available through select providers who have proven exceptional consumer experiences and outcomes. Pura Vida Body & Mind Spa is proud to be recognized as one of these providers. To learn more about RHA, schedule a consultation at our practice in Jacksonville, FL.

Is RHA Right for Me?
Most patients with moderate to severe facial wrinkles would be good candidates for RHA. In order to receive RHA dermal fillers, the patient should be:
- In good general health
- A nonsmoker
- At least 22 years of age
- Committed to maintaining a consistent skin care routine
How Does RHA Work?
RHA is injected by needle into the targeted facial wrinkle. Unlike other dermal fillers, RHA is designed to adapt to your facial movements, preventing dynamic wrinkles from forming. Since RHA is similar in properties to the natural hyaluronic acid already in the skin, it conforms better to the tissues in the skin and allows for a greater range of fluid motion. Depending on the severity and the locations of your wrinkles, there are different types of RHA injections that can be used. RHA is meant for mild to moderate wrinkles while RHA 2 and RHA 3 are intended to be injected into the mid-to-deep dermis to treat more severe cases. RHA 4 is meant for deep dermal injection to treat the most severe dynamic wrinkles, usually deep nasolabial folds and deeper lines in the lower face and jawline.
What to Expect After RHA
Directly following RHA injections, a patient can return to their normal daily schedule. It is recommended that strenuous activities, such as exercise or heavy lifting, be avoided for at least 48 hours after the injection to decrease the risk of additional swelling and bruising. Side effects directly after the injection include:
- Numbness or redness in the injection site
- Some swelling and/or bruising
- The treatment area appearing puffy or "overfilled"
- Lumps in the injection site
The majority of these side effects are temporary. In rare cases, a patient may have a hypersensitive reaction with hives or swelling.
