"I have tried everything and the kitchen sink for my skin, and I know these providers are at the top of the line for options. While I’m still struggling, they never dismiss me or belittle who I am when seeking care repeatedly. I have had great experiences with both of the Physician Assistants, even with my recurrent issues I know I’m in the best hands. They’re empathetic, the facility is clean and beautiful, and I’ve never waited more than 10 minutes past appointment times."- M.B. / Yelp / Jan 26, 2023
"Only my first visit here, but I was seen very quickly. Both the provider (not sure if MA or PA or something else) who helped me before seeing the physician and the physician herself (Dr. Good) were very kind and helpful."- R.M. / Google / Jan 22, 2023

How Does RHA Work?
The main difference between RHA and other dermal fillers is that it helps prevent dynamic wrinkles from being formed by preserving hyaluronic acid in the skin. During the actual treatment process at our facilities, our team of injectors will carefully mark the areas being injected. Additionally, there are various types of RHA injections that work to treat moderate to severe wrinkles. Though RHA is used for mild cases, RHA 2 and RHA 3 can be beneficial for moderate to severe cases. Lastly, RHA 4 is utilized for deep dermal injections to treat severe dynamic wrinkles.
What Can I Expect After RHA Injections?
Following your RHA injections, you will be able to return to your daily routine. However, you will need to avoid strenuous activities, including exercise or heavy lifting, for at least 24 – 48 hours following your treatment. Our team at Clear Lake Dermatology will also provide any additional aftercare instructions to ensure your best possible results. The longevity of results may vary from patient to patient, but additional follow-up appointments can be provided to maintain your outcome.
What is the difference between wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers?
Wrinkle relaxers like Dysport® or BOTOX® address dynamic wrinkles by restricting the movement of facial muscles. Injectable fillers rehydrate and add volume to fill fine lines, wrinkles, and some scars. Dermal fillers, like RHA, can also add more volume to your lips and cheeks and reduce the appearance of aging on the hands.
Why is RHA better than other dermal fillers?
RHA stands for resilient hyaluronic acid, which is preferable to traditional hyaluronic acid because it integrates better with the natural hyaluronic acid found in the skin. RHA is also ideal for defending against signs of aging and features four different product formulations to address specific issues with wrinkles, folds, and fine lines.
How long will the results of RHA injections last?
The longevity of your results will likely depend on the formula used and the area(s) treated. In some people, results may be visible for as long as a year, whereas some patients may need a repeat treatment after several months. Touch-up treatments can be performed at our office in order to sustain your results.
