Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne

It’s one thing to treat frustrating signs of aging like marionette lines and nasolabial folds—it’s another to do it without making the face look artificial or overdone. With Restylane® Refyne and Restylane Defyne, you have the opportunity to precisely target marionette lines and nasolabial folds with remarkably natural results.

The Science Behind Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne

It’s not just their active ingredients that make these formulas stand out. They have been developed using the patented XpresHan Technology™. This makes the smooth gel is flexible enough to move naturally but remain sturdy enough to maintain results. One common problem with dermal fillers is that when moved by something as dynamic as facial movement they can often make the face look overfilled and unnatural; with XpresHan Technology™, your results will look as natural as possible regardless if you’re smiling, laughing, or frowning.

Your Procedure

After a procedure that takes less than a half an hour to complete, Restylane® Refyne or Restylane® Defyne will be able to help you achieve a naturally more youthful look free of fine lines and wrinkles. These injectables are also relatively comfortable treatments: the formula contains lidocaine and are administered using an incredibly fine needle. Despite the deceptively simple treatment, they can create remarkably long-lasting results; in fact, both of these injectables have been known to create results that can last for up to 12 months.

The Differences Between Refyne and Defyne

Refyne’s gel is sturdy enough to last for a year, but it also has incredibly smooth and soft properties making it the perfect treatment for finer signs of aging. The soft qualities of Refyne make it optimal for more delicate areas of the face, like moderate to severe lines on the cheeks and the fine wrinkles above the upper lip known as “smoker’s lines.” Restylane® Refyne can also effectively treat oral commissures, which is the condition when the corners of the mouth begin to droop.

Defyne has even sturdier gel, giving it the right amount of structural support for lifting deep creases in the face and sunken areas. Despite the strength of the formula, results still look natural and refined.

Your Recovery from Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne

Because they’re injectables, Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne require absolutely little to no downtime or recovery period. Some patients do experience side effects like swelling, bruising, tenderness, and soreness in the treatment area. These side effects are temporary, they should dissipate after a week or two. Once the swelling has reduced, patients should be able to see their full results after a week.
