RHA

The RHA (Resilient Hyaluronic Acid) line of fillers is a collection of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers specifically designed to address signs of aging and provide natural-looking results. RHA fillers are formulated using a unique manufacturing process that preserves the natural structure and integrity of hyaluronic acid molecules. This results in a highly resilient filler that mimics the natural elasticity and movement of the skin, providing a more dynamic and natural outcome.

RHA fillers are used for facial rejuvenation and enhancement, targeting areas such as the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and lips. The treatment involves injecting the filler into the specific areas of concern to restore volume, smooth out wrinkles, and enhance facial contours. RHA fillers are designed to adapt to facial expressions and movements, ensuring a natural appearance even during facial animation.

What sets the RHA line of fillers apart from other brands is its innovative formulation and dynamic properties. The RHA fillers are specifically designed to withstand the stresses and strains of facial movements, making them ideal for areas with high mobility. The unique resilience of RHA fillers allows for a more natural and harmonious result, as the filler seamlessly integrates with the surrounding tissue and adapts to facial expressions.

Metropolis excels in the use of RHA fillers due to our specialized knowledge and expertise in facial rejuvenation. Our highly skilled specialists have extensive experience in administering RHA injections and possess a deep understanding of facial anatomy and the aging process. We take a personalized approach to each patient, carefully assessing their individual concerns and goals to create a customized treatment plan. With our precise injection techniques and attention to detail, we strive to achieve natural-looking results that enhance our patients’ features and restore their youthful appearance. Our commitment to ongoing education and staying updated with the latest advancements in the field ensures that we deliver the highest quality of care using RHA fillers.

Understanding Moles

If you are unclear on the mole definition, find out more about it here. A mole, also known as nevus, is a cluster of pigmented cells that appear as dark spots on the skin. They develop due to the accumulation of melanocytes, the pigment-producing cells. 

While most skin moles are harmless, understanding their formation is essential. Explore topics such as the definition of moles, their development, and their connection to melanin production.

 

Types of Moles

Delve into the various types of moles here: 

  • Congenital moles - Present at birth, larger in size, potential for increased melanoma risk.
  • Dysplastic nevi - Irregular shapes, varying colors, higher melanoma risk.
  • Common moles - Everyday pigmented spots, usually harmless. Vary in color and size, often round or oval.

 

Signs of Atypical Moles

Identifying atypical or suspicious moles involves paying attention to specific characteristics. Watch for asymmetry, irregular borders, variations in color, and any changes in diameter or evolution in appearance. 

If a mole exhibits these irregularities during self-examination, it's crucial to seek professional evaluation promptly. Monitoring mole irregularities helps in the early detection of potential skin issues, ensuring timely intervention and peace of mind.

 

ABCDEs of Melanoma Detection

Learn the rules of ABCDE for melanoma skin cancer detection, such as the following: 

  • Assess moles for Asymmetry, ensuring both halves match 
  • Inspect irregular Borders
  • Note Color variations
  • Monitor Diameter, with a threshold of 6mm
  • Be vigilant for any Evolving changes in size, shape, or color. 

Understanding and applying these criteria during mole examination enhances early skin cancer detection and intervention.

 

Mole Self-Examination Guide

Conduct a thorough self mole examination with these steps. Use a mirror to check moles on all body parts in a well-lit area. Look for asymmetry, irregular borders, color changes, and any variations in size. Enlist a partner for hard-to-reach areas. Perform this skin check at home monthly to detect any abnormalities early, ensuring proactive skin health.

 

When to See a Dermatologist

Book a dermatologist mole check if you notice sudden changes, itching, bleeding, or any concerns about the ABCDE criteria. Timely dermatologist consultations ensure accurate assessments and proactive interventions, promoting peace of mind regarding your skin health. Don't hesitate; prioritize your well-being with professional mole consultation.
