Sophisticated anti-aging results with a new adaptable formulation of hyaluronic acid

RHA fillers represent a new, advanced solution for firmer, tighter skin that is youthful and alluring. Their special hyaluronic acid-based formula is designed to adapt to your natural facial movements, preserving authenticity and spontaneity while minimizing dynamic wrinkles and folds.

Instead of having to undergo a combination treatment with BOTOX and dermal fillers, patients can now receive relief from age-related flaws in the complexion with one simple procedure. Shapiro Aesthetic Plastic Surgery & Skin Klinic is excited to be on the forefront of cutting-edge cosmetic science, delivering expert treatment with RHA fillers to clients in the Phoenix Metropolitan area and beyond.


What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a biocompatible compound found naturally in the skin. It is responsible for the supple volume, hydrated appearance and plump, firm contours associated with a youthful complexion. As we age, our supply of hyaluronic acid begins to wane, causing a sunken or dull appearance in the cheeks, around the eyes and in the temples. Fortunately, hyaluronic acid can be replaced by using injectables such as Juvederm and Restylane, and now RHA fillers.

What are RHA fillers?

RHA fillers are made with an innovative form of hyaluronic acid that stretches and adapts easily to your natural facial movements. The HA in RHA fillers is comparable to the natural structure of hyaluronic acid found in youthful skin. It can help to treat static wrinkles, which are typically caused by sun damage, smoking, pollution or a poor diet, as well as dynamic wrinkles that occur during facial contractions such as smiling, frowning and laughing.

RHA 2 and RHA 3 can be injected into the mid to deep dermis layers to help offset dynamic facial wrinkles, folds and creases. RHA 4 can be injected into the deeper dermis layers to help combat nasolabial folds and other severe indentations such as forehead furrows.

What happens after my procedure?

Treatment with RHA filters takes less than 20 minutes, and is completely non-invasive so clients can return to their normal activities right away. You should take care to avoid excessive sun exposure, retinol products and alcoholic beverages for several days after your treatment. Minor swelling, bruising and tenderness at the injection site may occur, but these side effects dissipate quickly. Results with RHA fillers typically last up to 15 months.

What is the cost for RHA fillers?

RHA fillers are priced similarly to other dermal fillers. Specific pricing will be based on the areas treated and the number of injections required to achieve the desired results. During your private consultation, we will evaluate your skin and create a personalized quote for you at that time.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients,

It is with great pleasure that I announce the reopening of my practice for both surgical and non-surgical services on May 1, 2020. As per the governor Ducey's executive order on April 22, 2020, elective surgery has been allowed to proceed, with appropriate precautions taken by health care professionals to ensure continued vigilance against the spread of Covid-19.

Our office staff and the staff of Paradise Valley Cosmetic Surgery Center and Surgical Recovery Center have proactively taken necessary precautions to meet strict criterion for health providers according to the state of Arizona. These include necessary patient screening for Covid-19, strict protocols for cleaning offices and treatment rooms, adequate PPE, and continued social distancing. As before, waiting areas will have minimal capacity, and friends and family members should not accompany one into offices or treatment areas.

With great anticipation we welcome you back to the practice, and wish you all continued health and safety.

Sincerely, Daniel Shapiro MD, FACS
