What is RHA?
Dermal fillers are often utilized to rehydrate the face in areas that have been weathered by time and gravity. The face can lack volume for a variety of reasons, but age and significant weight loss are common causes. The process works by injecting the liquid filler under the skin to fill sunken or hollowed areas. Injectable fillers are a great, nonsurgical alternative for individuals wanting to smooth wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin in order to create a more youthful appearance. The RHA Collection by Revance® is the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) filler for dynamic wrinkles. Unlike other fillers, it is designed to adapt to the movements of your face, which produces results that look just as natural as they do stunning. To determine which RHA filler is recommended for you, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Schultz, ABPS Certified, to learn more.
"How do I even begin to say how wonderful Dr. Ben Schultz is … he is simply the best physician/surgeon I’ve ever encountered! He is extremely knowledgeable, cares deeply about his patients, and has an impeccable bedside manner! He provided excellent care before, during, and after my nasal surgery. He is very attentive and always answered all of my questions. I know he has several patients, but he made me feel like I was his only one! I had a few complications after the surgery and he was very accommodating and understanding. It's rare to find a physician so caring and concerned about my health!"- K.W. / Google / Jun 02, 2023
"Right from the beginning I knew I would be in good hands with Dr. Ben. I was really nervous about my surgery but he put my mind at ease. From initially meeting him he was friendly, compassionate and easy to talk to. He was very thorough and answered any concerns I had. You can tell he truly cares for his patients. He would always check up on me to see how I was doing and was available when I needed him. I can’t thank him enough for what he has done for me. Dr.Ben is truly an amazing surgeon!"- E.H. / Google / Apr 17, 2023
"Wow...where should I start??!! I was diagnosed with breast cancer July of 2022. My GYN referred me to Drs. Ben and Michael Schultz (I will leave a separate review for Dr. Michael). From the time of my first consultation until today, Dr. Ben has been a God send. He is meticulous, and set realistic expectations. He texted me daily after my surgery to ensure I was feeling ok and healing properly. He did an amazing job on my reconstruction. EVERY doctor and staff person that has seen my results say, "Wow, your surgeon did an amazing job!" I usually question EVERYTHING I am told. However, he provided information in a way that was clear and concise. and.... best of all... his work proved exactly what he said he was going to do. Thanks Dr. Ben! ~Chevel God Speed!"- C.V. / Google / Apr 07, 2023
"Dr. Ben is amazing at what he does. And, amazingly, he gets back to me immediately with every question and concern. He always has a smile on his face to put you at ease. He and his father are the kindest doctors I’ve ever dealt with."- R.L. / Google / Mar 24, 2023
"Dr Ben, I can’t even put in words how appreciative I am of this man. I’ve been wanting a reduction for over 8 years now, I was at the point where the size literally weighed me down. He sympathized with me so much immediately and set himself apart from other surgeons I’ve met with by not downplaying my pain. I was so nervous about my surgery but he reassured me at every single step, he gave me his personal number for any post op questions which made me feel even better about choosing him. Every time I had a question, I waited no more than 30 mins for a response which was surprising given the amount of patients I’ve met at his practice. As a black woman, anything dealing with medical professionals is scary but Dr. Ben is the best I’ve ever interacted with. He restored my confidence in my body, went from a 36H to about a D cup. I have had absolutely no complications with my surgery, I felt like I was back to myself about 3-4 weeks post op. Thank you so much Dr. Ben! May God bless you infinitely"- M.M. / Google / Mar 18, 2023
What are the Benefits of RHA?
Over-the-counter products and creams can only do so much for aging skin. Injectable dermal fillers dramatically reduce unwanted signs of aging — without the need for incisions or invasive plastic surgery. Additional benefits of RHA include:
- Safe: RHA is FDA-approved and utilizes a patented technology to ensure quality, safety, and effectiveness.
- Long-lasting: RHA results can last up to one year, depending on the area of injection and your lifestyle habits.
- Natural-looking: RHA is designed to move with your facial expressions and provide completely natural-looking results.
- Customizable: Our personalized treatment plans are designed to meet your individual aesthetic goals.
Who Is a Candidate for RHA?
A candidate for RHA is typically an individual who is seeking to address moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds or marionette lines. This filler is designed to adapt to the dynamic nature of the face, allowing for a more natural look during facial movements. Individuals considering RHA treatments should be in good health, have realistic expectations about the results, and ideally have no history of severe allergies or reactions to dermal fillers. During your consultation at our Baltimore, MD office, Dr. Schultz can help determine if RHA or another treatment is best suited for you.
How Do RHA Injections Work?
Before your injection, Dr. Ben Schultz will meet with you to gain insight into your aesthetic goals and determine which RHA formula may best achieve them. For the actual procedure, a numbing cream may be usedas a local anesthetic to ease the discomfort of the injection. However, the product also comes with lidocaine for a near-painless treatment. We will use our vast experience to determine how much is appropriate and will slowly and gradually inject it through a very fine needle. Varying amounts of a syringe, or multiple syringes, could be used depending on the desired result.
How much do RHA fillers cost?
Your cost for a wrinkle filler will vary based on the type used and the amount used to match your goals. During your consult, we will develop your customized treatment plan that matches your needs and wants. We will also give you a cost estimate for your treatment, which will include any specials we have.
What is the difference between wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers?
A wrinkle relaxer, such as DYSPORT®, addresses dynamic wrinkles (particularly in the forehead and around the eyes) by relaxing the movement of facial muscles. Injectable fillers rehydrate and add volume to fill in fine lines, wrinkles, and certain types of scars. Dermal fillers, like RHA, can also be used to add more volume to your lips and cheeks and reduce the appearance of aging on the hands.
How long will the results of RHA injection last?
The longevity of your results will be dependent on the formula used and the area(s) treated. In some people, results may be visible as long as one year, whereas some patients may need a repeat treatment after a couple of months. Touch-up treatments can be performed at our office in order to sustain your results.
What areas of my face can be treated with RHA?
RHA can address signs of aging throughout your face by either restoring volume or smoothing static lines. These injections can be used on parentheses, marionette, as well as corner lines near your mouth and nose. They can also restore volume to your cheeks.
