Are expression lines making you look older than you would like?
New Jersey Plastic Surgery is pleased to offer the 1st and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler to erase dynamic wrinkles. Revance RHA is a minimally invasive procedure that reduces expression lines on the face with Resilient Hyaluronic Acid, also known as RHA injections.
Skin aging is often first seen in areas of the face that are most expressive. A lifetime of making facial expressions, such as laughing, smiling, and frowning, takes a toll on your skin over time. RHA is a dermal filler that restores volume to expression lines, helping the depleted area of skin to become level with the normal skin nearby.
Common areas to develop expression lines include fine lines around the eyes (crow’s feet), nasolabial folds (smile lines or laugh lines), and frown lines between the brows (11 lines). After a private consultation with our nurse injector to discuss your concerns, RHA injections may be performed with your approval. We also offer a complete suite of both surgical and non-surgical anti-aging solutions to keep you looking ageless.
How is Revance RHA Different From Other Dermal Fillers?
Unlike other types of dermal fillers, RHA has a unique skin-smoothing effect due to the way the hyaluronic acid in the preparation is cross-linked during manufacturing.
The gel composition closely resembles the natural hyaluronic acid that is present in human skin. Thanks to its precise formulation, Resilient Hyaluronic Acid (RHA) adapts to facial movements for a look that is completely natural. Smoothing expression lines has never been so effective — all with the simplicity and ease of a few quick injections that are virtually painless. Revance RHA is FDA approved in the United States for expression lines in patients 22 years and older. RHA was first developed in Switzerland by a company known as TEOXANE SA. In partnership with Revance Therapeutics, the latest Swiss science is now available in the U.S. after passing clinical testing overseen by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). New Jersey Plastic Surgery is excited to be among the first plastic surgery clinics in New Jersey to offer the RHA Collection to our patients.
With results that last up to 15 months, our patients enjoy long-lasting correction of facial expression lines.
Achieving a youthful complexion without spending as much time maintaining your looks is a huge benefit to men and women that seek long term freedom from dynamic wrinkles. More than 93% of participants in the United States’ clinical trial reported that they were “satisfied” or “very satisfied” with the results at six months post-treatment.
Botox is a time-honored solution that is praised by cosmetic surgeons across the globe for effectively targeting expressive facial wrinkles. Botox was FDA approved on April 15, 2002, as a temporary cosmetic injection for frown lines in adult patients. Now, patients seeking ageless skin have more options than ever with the introduction of the RHA dermal filler from Revance.
While Botox is a neuromodulator that smooths wrinkles that lie above the targeted facial muscle, RHA is a facial filler. Instead of stopping muscle movement, RHA places a small amount of hyaluronic acid gel into the wrinkled area to plump and smooth the skin.
The muscle is not paralyzed, so that the patient can resume normal facial muscle movement for a beautifully expressive face, just without the wrinkles. Finally, Botox results reduce dynamic wrinkles for 4 to 6 months, while Revance RHA results last nearly 3x longer.

With nearly 15 years of experience in aesthetic medicine, Astin has performed thousands of injections to help our clients age minimally. Dr. Barry DiBernardo, a board-certified New Jersey plastic surgeon, oversees the non-surgical department at our beautiful Montclair office. Together, their shared passion for continued learning keeps our team at the forefront of cosmetic medicine.
Serious side effects are rare with hyaluronic acid fillers such as Revance RHA. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found throughout the skin, thereby greatly reducing the risk of allergic reactions. Unlike surgery, the RHA procedure is minimally invasive.
Common side effects of dermal fillers such as RHA include temporary injection site pain, redness, swelling, or mild bruising. Most patients do not experience significant complications from FDA-approved dermal fillers, however, serious side effects cannot be ruled out entirely. You will be advised of possible risks prior to having RHA injections performed by our skilled nurse injector.
