The Restylane Refyne and Defyne fillers are scientifically-advanced gels that are manufactured with XpresHAn Technology (pronounced ex-ˈspre-shən), creating gels that offer a range of flexibility and support. Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne have been shown to maintain effectiveness for the treatment of laugh lines for up to 12 months but can be used elsewhere on the face in an off-label fashion. These fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally occurring in the body and resorbed over time. Typically, Refyne is used in fine lines, lips, and tear troughs whereas Defyne is used in heavier laugh lines and marionette lines.
RESTYLANE INJECTION PROCEDURE
Filler treatments are only available through healthcare professionals who are trained and experienced in dermal filler injections. The treatments are given in an office setting, where a very fine needle is guided below the epidermis and into the connective tissues within the dermal area of the face where deep lines and folds develop. There, the filler works like a sponge within the skin, where it also absorbs water, giving you a more youthful appearance.
Restylane Refyne and Defyne contain a pain-numbing lidocaine anesthetic, which keeps patient discomfort at a minimum. In most cases, these treatments are performed in just minutes and require little or no down time, although bruising may occur no matter how experienced the injector. Cosmetic results are instantaneous, and the younger appearance achieved in a single filler treatment can last up to 1 year, after which time the body safely absorbs the biocompatible filler.
IS RESTYLANE REFYNE OR DEFYNE RIGHT FOR YOU?
All Restylane Refyne and Defyne injections are non-surgical and tailored to each patient’s needs and desired results. Even if you are a person with darker skin pigment, the FDA considers Restylane Refyne and Defyne to be a safe and effective way of improving the cosmetic appearance without increasing the risk of hyper-pigmentation, keloid, or hypertrophic scarring.
Individual Restylane Refyne and Defyne results will vary from patient to patient, so a one-on-one consultation can give you a better understanding of the type of results you can expect following a treatment.
