What is RHA Filler?

RHA fillers are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers designed to plump the skin, adding volume to augment facial features and smooth facial wrinkles and folds. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body. It binds to water molecules in the skin, creating a plumping and smoothing effect. RHA fillers are designed to move naturally with your facial movements so that you can expect a naturally refreshed appearance after treatment. RHA fillers are available in four different formulas.

“Dr. Rocheford and her staff made me feel valued, comfortable and confident in my decision to go ahead with a tummy tuck, arm lift and breast lift. I could not be happier with the results. I am now about a year post-op and loving having a shape again! I had lost about 70 pounds and had so much extra skin. Everything is back where it belongs.
On the two days I had surgery, the staff made it feel more like a spa day than major surgery. The instructions for care after the procedure were clear and I had access to a nurse if I had any questions. I highly recommend you look at her before and after gallery if you are considering plastic surgery.”

“Dr. Rocheford and her team are the best of the best. The results of my breast lift and reduction surgery are better than I ever hoped. I love how I look, the way clothes fit, and freedom from the weight and strain on my upper body that I lived with way too long. Every detail from pre-op, to surgery day to post op care went smoothly. Any questions I had along the way were answered promptly. I felt safe, well cared for and that I was valued, listened to and the entire team was working to see that I had a good outcome. Dr. Rocheford succeeded brilliantly in giving me that good outcome. My life is better, from both a physical and emotional standpoint. I highly recommend Dr. Rocheford as a plastic surgeon, but also for the excellence of every aspect of her practice.”

The Procedure

RHA filler treatments only take about 30 minutes or less, depending on the size of the treatment area and how much product is needed. Patients generally do not find this to be a painful treatment and they can return to work or their daily activities immediately after injections.

RHA Filler Recovery

There is minimal downtime and recovery after filler injections. Patients can expect mild swelling, bruising, and tenderness but these effects will improve within a few days. You can take over-the-counter pain medication and use a cold compress as needed to alleviate any discomfort. Avoid strenuous activity and sun exposure to minimize swelling and aid in your recovery. Results will develop gradually for about two weeks as the product settles into the skin.

How Long Does RHA Filler Last?

RHA fillers typically last 12-15 months. Deeper filler injections typically last longer but the timeline varies for each patient.
