So often we hear our clients say “I look tired, I just don’t look like I feel anymore.” or “I don’t even recognize the face in the mirror sometimes!” If sun damage and age related changes in facial volume have you looking older than you feel, dermal filler may be part of the solution to restore a younger looking you.
In 1993, while still in her 20’s, Valerie Taupin founded her own company distributing breast implants, lasers, and medical devices to plastic surgeons and dermatologists. By the year 2000, in association with a specialist Ophthalmology company, she created the dermal filler called Juvederm®, which she went on to export to over 50 countries worldwide. Three years later she left and started TEOXANE® Laboratoires in Geneva, Switzerland. In subsequent years her focus has been on mastering research, complete monitoring of the manufacturing processes, strict quality control, and creating dermal fillers with an elegant and natural look and feel in addition to long lasting effect.
Her award winning RHA Collection of dermal fillers was available in Europe for 5 years prior to being launched in the US in 2020. This truly “Designer Filler” is available at only select practice locations which have been chosen based on injector quality and experience.

Have you ever wondered how we select which dermal filler to use, and for which indications? It’s all about the balance of Stretch and Strength, and the characteristics of the area being treated.
A lot goes into that decision, including :
The type of issue being addressed and the condition of the skin- ex: fine lines, skin folds, skin quality, degree and location of volume loss
The movement that will occur in the region needing correction- the closer you are to a dynamic/moving area such as the mouth, the more critical it is that your dermal filler have the flexibility to also move naturally during facial expression. A dermal filler that is too stiff or not placed ideally can appear unnatural and “sausage like” or “bumpy”, as well as cast unwanted shadows under different lighting conditions. The RHA collection in particular has been designed to be resilient enough to adapt to this facial movement, yet produce long lasting correction which stands the test of time.
The RHA Collection® uses a gentle manufacturing process with few chemical modifications.
It represents the latest advancement in hyaluronic acid technology in more than a decade, creating injectable products which most closely resemble the natural HA in your skin. This might be expected to reduce the likelihood of adverse stimulation of the immune system- to date we are aware of no nodules or granulomas being reported with use of the RHA Collection® of dermal fillers.
Your injector is an artist – selecting that person is perhaps your most important decision when considering a dermal filler. As Dr. Lisa loves to say, “Worry more about who is holding the syringe than you do about what is in the syringe!” The ideal dermal filler experience is created when an expert injector understands your goals, communicates well with you, and delivers a carefully selected product with the very best technique.
This is not a time to “fly blind”, choose impulsively or chase a bargain. We look forward to helping you make the best decision possible and maximizing your anti-aging results.
