What is it?

RHA Redensity is a gel implant or dermal filler that is injected in specific areas of facial tissue to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It consists of the chemical sodium Hyaluronic Acid (NaHA), 1,4-butanediol diglycidyl ether (BDDE) and 0.3% of the drug lidocaine hydrochloride to reduce pain on injection.

This approval is for the correction of moderate to severe vertical wrinkles around the mouth (dynamic perioral rhytids).

How does it work?

A doctor injects RHA Redensity into the dermis and superficial dermis for the correction of moderate to severe dynamic perioral rhytids.

When is it used?

RHA Redensity may be used to reduce moderate to severe wrinkles around the mouth of adults 22 years of age and older.

What will it accomplish?

RHA Redensity may help to reduce moderate to severe dynamic perioral rhytids for up to 12 months. In a clinical study, patients needed one or two treatments with multiple injections to achieve the best outcome. Specifically, 121 of the 150 subjects (80.7%) had a clinically meaningful improvement in their perioral wrinkles at the 8-week primary endpoint. Effectiveness was seen in 66.5% of subjects at 12 months.
