RHA4: A MORE COMFORTABLE WRINKLE TREATMENT EXPERIENCE
If you want a more youthful appearance, but you’re concerned about the potential discomfort from treatment, you can get beautiful results and a more comfortable RHA4 experience.
The Science Behind RHA4
The active component of RHA4 is hyaluronic acid (HA). HA bonds with water molecules in the skin tissues to create a plumping effect when injected into target areas.
RHA4 adds volume to the backs of hands and the cheeks. It eliminates deep creases like smile lines and gives your skin a lift for a younger-looking appearance.
Ideal Candidates for RHA4
If you want to reduce the appearance of your smile lines, you are an ideal candidate for RHA4 injections. RHA4 should not be used by anyone with a known allergy to lidocaine or a known history of bleeding disorders.
During your consultation with Dr. Sabrina Lahiri, you will be asked about your medical history, current conditions, allergies, and medications being taken. She will examine your target areas to come up with the right approach for you. Let Dr. Lahiri know about your goals so she can plan your treatment accordingly.
The Treatment Process
Prior to your injections, your target areas will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized. Your skin will be marked to indicate the intended injection sites. Your injections will then be administered. For some, it only takes about 15 minutes to finish, while with more injections, it could take up to an hour.
By combining lidocaine with RHA4, discomfort is reduced during and after treatment. In clinical studies evaluating the Restylane family of products in laugh lines (nasolabial folds):
95% of patients reported significantly less pain during treatment with RHA4. Patients continued to experience less discomfort for up to one hour after treatment.
Patients do not have to go through a recovery or downtime period following RHA4 injections. You may experience minor bruising, redness, and swelling, but these are common and should disappear within a few days. Most patients go back to their normal routines after their treatments.
How Much Does a RHA4 Injection Cost?
Because the procedure is highly individualized for each patient, the cost of RHA4 treatments varies from patient to patient. The overall price depends on the number of injections and may also be impacted by follow-up treatments.
