Aging skin is a problem for many people, bringing unwanted wrinkles, lines, and folds. The face looks older as creases develop running from the nose to the corners for the mouth (nasolabial folds) and from mouth to chin. These lines often become deep and visible, leaving a person looking older, and less appealing. Restylane Defyne is one of the latest generation of dermal fillers that works to smooth out deep laugh lines without affecting facial mobility and expressiveness.
How is the Restylane Defyne procedure performed?
Restylane Defyne is a simple procedure where an injectable gel is administered to nasolabial folds and marionette lines, to correct and soften the appearance. Each injection contains a local anesthetic called lidocaine so the treatment is comfortable. A topical numbing cream may be used for those with higher sensitivity.
How long does the treatment take?
Treatment time varies from patient to patient based on how many injections are needed. Typically, Restylane Defyne treatments may require from fifteen to thirty minutes to complete.
How does Restylane Defyne work?
Similar to other dermal fillers, Restylane Defyne is a hyaluronic acid gel that is injected into deep laugh lines. The difference lies within the XpresHAn Technology™, making it extremely flexible, for more natural-looking results and the ability to maintain the facial expressions that make you – you.
How long can I expect my results to last?
While results are different for each patient, results can last up to twelve months, after which you can return for another treatment to maintain results.
Does Restylane Defyne have side effects?
The most common side-effects can include swelling, bruising and light bleeding. We will provide instructions for you to follow before and after treatment.
Is there any recovery time with Restylane Defyne?
You can return to all of your regular activities after your treatment.
