As we age, our skin undergoes natural changes, often leading to the loss of facial fat pads and the emergence of wrinkles. This is a normal part of the aging process, but it can result in a look that doesn’t quite reflect how young we still feel. The RHA Collection of fillers offers an innovative approach to addressing these signs of aging.
At AURAE MD in San Diego and La Jolla, CA, our treatments can help you with your aesthetic goals. Our approach to RHA treatments is informed by a deep understanding of the unique facial structure and skin health of each individual. We provide services that address the visible signs of aging while making sure you still look and feel like yourself.
What is the RHA Collection?
The RHA® Collection, known for its Resilient Hyaluronic Acid (HA) content, is tailor-made for dynamic facial areas. Incorporating over a decade’s worth of advancements in HA filler technology, this collection stands out in its field. Its manufacturing process is finely tuned to ensure the fillers closely resemble the natural HA present in the skin.
The series comprises four distinct HA filler types. RHA Redensity™, a feather-light filler, effectively addresses fine lines around the lips. For graceful and subtle enhancement of dynamic facial wrinkles and folds, including areas like nasolabial folds and temples, RHA® 2 and RHA® 3 are the go-to choices. Meanwhile, RHA® 4 is adept at restoring volume and structure in more extensive areas such as the cheeks, chin, or jawline, giving a balanced and natural enhancement.
How Does the RHA Collection Work?
RHA fillers are distinct from other fillers in their formulation and functionality. These fillers are specifically designed to resemble the natural hyaluronic acid found in youthful skin for a more natural-looking result. The RHA technology is dynamic, adapting seamlessly to facial movements. This adaptability is crucial, as it maintains a flawless appearance, both when the face is at rest and in motion, setting RHA cosmetic treatments apart from more static traditional fillers.
What Are the Benefits of RHA Filler?
RHA fillers are renowned for their ability to deliver results that look and feel natural. By mimicking the hyaluronic acid naturally found in the skin, RHA fillers blend seamlessly with facial tissues, enhancing your features without altering your inherent expressions.
Enhanced Skin Hydration
A key benefit of RHA fillers is their capacity to boost skin hydration. The hyaluronic acid in these fillers attracts and retains moisture, helping to rejuvenate and hydrate the skin, leading to a more youthful and radiant appearance.
RHA dermal fillers are designed for durability. Their sophisticated composition allows them to integrate smoothly with the skin’s structure, providing results that are not only effective but also long-lasting, maintaining their integrity over time.
Adaptability to Facial Movements
The advanced RHA technology helps these cosmetic treatments adapt fluidly to facial movements. This adaptability means that RHA fillers move naturally with your expressions, preserving the dynamism and authenticity of your facial gestures.
Effective Wrinkle Treatment
RHA fillers are particularly effective for dynamic facial lines and wrinkles. They are designed to target areas prone to movement-related wrinkles, providing a smoothing effect that diminishes these lines.
The RHA Collection
What is RHA Redensity?
RHA Redensity is a weightless filler that smooths fine lip lines, creating a natural airbrushed effect. It doesn’t add any volume but rather is injected superficially into the epidermis to smooth fine lines and even scarring. This innovative RHA dermal filler is specifically designed for the delicate and dynamic perioral area. By targeting the fine lines around the mouth, often exacerbated by facial movements, RHA Redensity provides a refined solution that enhances the natural contours of the lips without altering their fundamental shape.
Where Can Redensity Be Used?
The most popular area to treat is the perioral area. Redensity is injected superficially, just below the skin, to smooth stubborn lip lines. By using RHA for fine lines, we can make these areas more youthful in appearance. A thorough consultation with Dr. Emami will determine the most appropriate use of Redensity for you.
What Is RHA 2, 3, and 4?
RHA 2 and 3 are most commonly used for the correction of moderate or deep facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. They are known for providing elegant and refined smoothing, ideal for those seeking a soft, natural look. These formulations are expertly crafted to minimize the appearance of these dynamic facial lines so that the skin retains a youthful and refreshed appearance without compromising natural facial expressions.
RHA 4 can be used to replace volume loss and build back structure in the cheeks and chin. It is particularly effective for contouring facial features, offering shape and volume enhancement.

Frequently Asked Questions About the RHA Collection
Are there any reasons why I should not receive RHA?
Our top priority is quality care and safety for our patients. It is required that every patient receive an in depth and comprehensive consultation before any treatment.
What are the possible side effects?
The most common side effects may include injection-site redness, swelling, pain, tenderness, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, discoloration and itching. Side effects may vary on a case by case basis and the patient’s medical history.
When will I see results and how long will they last?
Dermal filler injection results are instant. The results from the RHA® Collection of fillers can typically last up to 15 months in dynamic wrinkles and folds and 1 year in lip lines.
RHA® 2, RHA® 3, and RHA® 4 were shown in two 15-month studies for continued improvement in wrinkles and folds. RHA Redensity™ was studied in a 12-month study for lipstick lines—in which 2/3 of participants still had lipstick-line improvement after 12 months.
How much do fillers cost?
The cost of an RHA® Collection treatment will vary based on your individual aesthetic goals and the treatment plan that Dr. Emami helps design for you. Your geographic location, the number of syringes used, and the experience level of your provider are all key pricing factors.

What Is the Difference Between Dermal Fillers and Neuromodulators?
Dermal fillers are used to add volume to the skin, while neuromodulators relax wrinkles by reducing motion in certain areas. We may use dermal fillers like RHA for fine lines and volume loss, while neuromodulators may be better suited for dynamic lines.
What Are RHA Filler Treatments Like?
RHA injections are non-invasive treatments typically completed within a short office visit. The process involves carefully injecting the RHA filler into targeted areas to address specific concerns like fine lines, wrinkles, or volume loss. Most patients experience minimal discomfort during the treatment, with just a quick pinch with each injection. The immediate results of RHA fillers allow for a quick return to daily activities, with noticeable improvements in facial aesthetics.
