Restylane® Refyne / Restylane® Defyne
Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne are the newest products available in the Restylane® family of dermal fillers. Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for individuals over the age of 21, these next-generation injectable treatments are specially formulated to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles, creases, and folds, while allowing for natural facial movement and facial expression. This innovation in dermal filler technology also provides results lasting for for up to a year (if not longer) for most individuals. Restylane® Refyne is an excellent option for softening lines and wrinkles of modest depths, while Restylane® Defyne is best suited for deeper creases. Using these innovative fillers, board-certified plastic surgeon Louis P. Bucky, MD and our expertly trained nurse injectors can help you achieve a rejuvenated facial appearance with exceptionally natural-looking results.
Treatment with Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne
Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne are composed of naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid (HA), so no allergy testing is necessary prior to treatment. During the procedure, the selected filler will be carefully injected into targeted areas via an ultra-thin needle. Once administered, Restylane® Refyne works to soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles while enabling completely natural facial flexibility. Similarly, Restylane® Defyne allows for natural expressions and facial movement, though it provides more advanced support for the reduction of deeper creases and folds. Depending on the number and extent of concerns being treated, Restylane® Refyne and Defyne injections can often be performed in approximately 30 minutes. As a result, many patients choose to receive treatment on their lunchbreak.
Recovery and Results
A minimal degree of bruising, redness, and/or swelling may be initially apparent in the treated region, but these side effects resolve relatively quickly and generally do not prevent patients from returning to normal, non-strenuous daily activities right away. The rejuvenating effects of Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne typically appear instantaneously with treatment, and they usually last at least twelve months for most women and men. Once the results begin to fade, touch-up injections may be recommended to maintain an ideal outcome.
