Introducing the RHA® Collection in Colorado Springs, CO – the first HA filler for dynamic wrinkles
Led by board-certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon, Dr. Susan Schroeder, Perfect Skin Dermatology takes great pride in providing exceptional experiences and outcomes to patients from our well-appointed center in central Colorado. Due to this demonstrated record of patient satisfaction and results, we are among the select group of practitioners hand-picked by Revance Aesthetics to launch the RHA® Collection of fillers. The RHA® Collection in Colorado Springs, CO, represents both the first innovation in injectable filler science since 2008 and the first time this European family of fillers has been available in the U.S.
RHA® fillers are the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based filler products designed to improve the appearance of dynamic facial wrinkles and folds. Treated sites should look as good at rest as they do in motion. So, these fillers integrate well into tissues. They are undetectable and provide a natural and “soft” result. These unique attributes are due to the collection’s unique manufacturing process. Revance identified limitations to how traditional HA fillers are engineered, namely, the high degree of chemical modifications. In turn, they developed a “gentle” manufacturing process with limited chemical alterations that preserves the natural structure of hyaluronic acid.
A substance made by your own body, HA is present in the eyes, joints, and skin. It functions as a lubricant and moisturizer. In the skin, HA also provides volume and structure. Over time, your body produces less of it, which can result in a thirsty appearance, and lax and sunken areas. So, by keeping its natural properties intact, RHA® optimally restores the HA present in your skin for a rejuvenated appearance (not fake, frozen, or “done”).
There are three approved formulations within the RHA® Collection. Dr. Schroeder works with you to determine the one that is best to get the results that you seek and to meet your unique needs based on factors such as how deep the product is injected into the skin.
Dr. Schroeder is very thorough, caring and will always do the right thing for you. She is respectful of your needs, and will provide you with all the options needed for whatever reason you are visiting her for.Nancy W.
