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.
"I’ve had nothing but great experiences at Today’s Cosmetic Surgey. Dr. Chiu and Sara are professional, compassionate, and experts at what they do. I have been getting Juvederm injections in my lips there for almost 2 years. My lips ALWAYS look amazing, natural, and just the right amount of full. I was very nervous when I went in for my first time because there are so many horror stories of lip injections. However, my lips have exceeded my expectations every time and Dr. Chiu is truly an artist. I would recommend him to anyone!"- C.P. / Google / Nov 19, 2017
"I Am Super Happy with This Practice. - 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 / May 17, 2019

"BLUF: Dr. Chiu is a brilliant surgeon. If you want natural-looking results, he is your doctor! When I was considering rhinoplasty seriously a couple of years ago it took me a while to find a surgeon I could trust and had the right credentials. I went to three surgeons, including Dr. Chiu, and found him to be the best fit. Dr. Chiu is incredibly realistic when it comes to bringing harmony to the face and took the time to explain what would work the best not only aesthetically but also for my overall health. For rhinoplasty, you want to look good but still be able to breathe normally. Rhinoplasty is his speciality and after having this procedure done by Dr. Chiu I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking this procedure. He considered my total facial structure in his renderings to give me an idea what my new nose would look like. Our goal was to take the focus away from my nose; I no longer wanted that feature to be where everyone’s eyes were drawn. Dr. Chiu does his surgeries at Upper St. Clair hospital and only has the best surgical staff working with him. I was well taken care of and was in surgery for approximately four hours. Following surgery, I was released to go home to recover. I was expecting some discomfort the first night; however, my discomfort was not from any pain but from having to sleep upright. I prescribed some pain medication but I never needed it. I suffered from ZERO bruising! Most post-op photos show significant bruising from rhinoplasty, but I did not have a single one. I was swollen, puffy, and a tad stiff for a while following the procedure but experiencing no pain. I was able to return to work less than 7 days following the procedure and very few people were able to tell I had something done due to lack of bruising. It took about one year for the results of the surgery to settle in, and Dr. Chiu did emphasize that would indeed be the case. It has been 13 months at the time of this post, and I couldn’t be happier with my new nose! It fits the rest of my face, I have full functionality (no issues breathing), and you cannot see the small incision at all. Dr. Chiu is incredibly thorough and highly skilled. What I respect most about him and his practice, though, is that he gives you realistic expectations and explains the why/how to his methods. If you are seeking natural and harmonizing results for your looks, Dr. Chiu should absolutely be at the top of your list! I also want to point out that Sara is wonderful! She makes sure you have every piece of information you could possibly need from scheduling, financing, and answers all questions promptly. I am so glad to have chosen to trust Dr. Chiu and Sara with my face! I will be a lifelong customer as I continue through life and the aging process."- E.C. / Google / Mar 21, 2021

Am I an Ideal Candidate for Revance?
Men and women of virtually all ages are welcome to undergo Revance injections. If you're unhappy with the presence of dynamic wrinkles in your face, contact a member of our team to discuss whether or not this treatment might be right for you. Revance works well for those with:
- Frown lines between the eyebrows
- Forehead wrinkles
- Crow's feet
- Smile lines
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.
