What is Revance?
Dynamic wrinkles are folds and creases that appear on the face due to the contraction of muscles when we smile, frown, or make any other facial expression. As we age, these wrinkles become more and more prominent, which can lead to insecurity for many men and women. Revance from the RHA® collection is the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler for dynamic facial wrinkles and folds. At Today's Cosmetic Surgery, our staff — led by Dr. Robert Chiu — is highly trained in administering Revance, as well as a variety of other injectable treatments, for our patients in Pittsburgh, PA.
"Dr. Chiu is a highly skilled and brilliant plastic surgeon! His keen eye for perfection and artistry has given me the very best, long-lasting and natural results that I have desired. His techniques used on my recent neck lift/tuck resulted in the most amazing results all with minimal pain and swelling. Whether it has been receiving Botox, fillers, or my recent neck lift/tuck surgery, my experience from the second I step into the office for my appointments to the smile that he puts on my face from the end result, has been true perfection and expertise that can't be matched. Dr. Chiu and Sara are dedicated to their patients, and I am thrilled and filled with gratitude by the results and care provided by this extraordinary team. Sara and Dr. Chiu are the BEST in Pittsburgh in my opinion!"- M. / RealSelf / Jun 19, 2020
"I have seen Dr. Chiu for several years and have had both botox and fillers. I had been contemplating a lower lift for some time but held off; first because of the expense and also I thought it might look like I had surgery. I finally talked myself into the surgery and it was well worth the expense. I'm extremely happy with the results; I know he took at least ten years off of my face and neck without any visible signs. I have total confidence in Dr. Chiu and was very glad a friend recommended him.Sara is very accomodating and makes you feel so welcome."- V. / RealSelf / Jun 19, 2019

How Does Revance Work?
As with most other injectable treatments, Revance will be injected in several areas of your face. The HA serum will fill the space containing the wrinkle, which will effortlessly smooth out the skin in the affected area. This is able to be done without restricting movement in your face due to Revance being designed with the specific purpose of seamlessly adapting to movement in the face. This allows your face and expressions to maintain their natural appearance. There are multiple types of RHA, which are each designed for different severities of dynamic wrinkles. For example, while RHA 2 and RHA 3 are meant to correct moderate to severe wrinkles, RHA 4 is designed to be injected deep into the dermis, correcting even some of the most severe dynamic wrinkles in the face.
What Results Can I Expect From Revance?
Typically, the injection sites may appear to be slightly red and/or swollen following the procedure. However, these side effects are entirely common and usually reside within only a few hours. Other than this, there is no downtime or recovery associated with Revance injections. Patients are free to return to their normal daily schedules as soon as they leave our office. Most patients will notice results once the redness and swelling have subsided with many results lasting for about 24 weeks.
