The Teosyal RHA line includes some of the newest formulations of dermal fillers created by Clarion Medical Technologies
The four different products in this line (RHA 1, RHA 2, RHA 3, and RHA 4) were created to be used in specific areas of the face for lines and wrinkles of varying size and depth. Like many dermal fillers, RHA fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid (HA), a sugar molecule that is naturally present in our skin and connective tissue. Hyaluronic acid binds to water, helping the skin maintain hydration and plumpness. One molecule of HA can hold 1,000 times its weight in water. In our skin, the presence of HA helps maintain and promote a youthful appearance. The amount of hyaluronic acid in the human body decreases naturally over time, creating the appearance of increasingly fragile, dehydrated, and less elastic skin. Injections of HA can help reduce the appearance of aging by maintaining the skin’s hydration and replacing lost volume, resulting in a smooth skin tone with a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Advantages over traditional hyaluronic acid fillers
The RHA line of fillers
The RHA line of fillers is unique as compared to traditional hyaluronic acid fillers because they are composed of Resilient Hyaluronic Acid (RHA). The molecules of this substance exist in longer chains than those of typical hyaluronic acid, allowing for greater flexibility of movement and increased smoothness. This allows for better flow and settling underneath the skin as compared to traditional forms of filler, which are comprised of fragmented hyaluronic acid chains. Due to this increase in flexibility and movement, the RHA line is best suited for use in the dynamic areas of the face: the areas that move when we make expressions such as speaking, laughing, smiling, and frowning. These fillers move with the face to avoid a lumpy or over-injected look and can be nearly undetectable (other than the boost in youthfulness).
The RHA line consists of 4 different products: RHA 1, RHA 2, RHA 3, and RHA 4. These products have differing hyaluronic acid concentrations and viscosity, which allows for the customization of each product for specific concerns and areas of use. Each of these products consists of cross-linked HA molecules. Cross-linking is a method of connecting these molecules together. Varying the degree of cross-linking in these products allows for a different viscosity (thickness) of each product, producing slightly different results.
The RHA line consists of 4 different products:
RHA 1 consists of both non-cross-linked and cross-linked RHA and is intended for use on superficial fine lines and wrinkles. This filler is injected into the middle layer of skin (mid dermis) and is used on the “bar code area” above the lips, around the lips, neck, décolleté, and the tear trough area. As compared to the other RHA fillers, RHA 1 has a lower concentration of hyaluronic acid and a lower viscosity, which result in a smoother, more fluid product. This filler is used to create a smooth, unlined appearance with results lasting 9 to 12 months.
RHA 2 consists of cross-linked RHA and is intended for use on moderate wrinkles. This filler is injected into the middle layer of skin (mid dermis) and is used in the forehead and glabella areas. RHA 2 has a higher concentration of HA and a higher viscosity than RHA 1, making it suitable for use on deeper wrinkles. Results with this product typically last 9 to 18 months.
RHA 3 consists of cross-linked RHA and is intended for severe wrinkles. This filler is injected in the bottom layers of skin (deep dermis) and is used in the nasolabial folds and marionette lines. RHA 3 has the same concentration of hyaluronic acid as RHA 2 but a higher viscosity, allowing for a more resistant product suitable for deep wrinkles. Results with this product typically last 12 to 20 months.
RHA 4 consists of cross-linked RHA and is intended to create volume in extended dynamic areas of the face, including the cheeks and facial contours. This filler is injected into the superficial fat of the subcutaneous layer of the skin. RHA 4 has the highest viscosity of all products in the RHA line, which allows for increased structure and shape in the face. Results with this product typically last 12 to 22 months.
