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 Restylane Defyne different?

This dermal filler was developed with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance. Produced with an innovative cross-linking technology, and a specialized process called XpresHAn Technology™, the filler smooths lines and creases while maintaining flexibility. A smooth, injectable gel, Restylane Defyne softens lines and wrinkles, with natural-looking results. The flexibility of the product makes it possible to smooth deep facial wrinkles without affecting facial motion – the perfect solution for facial rejuvenation.

Benefits of Restylane Defyne Treatments: Flexible Motion

The benefits of Restylane Defyne include:

  • Improves the appearance of deep laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines)
  • Maintains facial expression for natural-looking results
  • Provides facial rejuvenation around the mouth

Restylane Defyne: Frequently Asked Questions

At Laser Cliniqúe, we understand that any facial treatment can be a big step. We educate our clients, and ensure they get all of their questions answered. Read some of the most common questions our clients ask:

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.

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

Updated May 20th, 2020

Effective immediately the following will occur:

  • 1. We have received clearance from San Diego county and are now open and seeing patients
  • 2. We require any person entering our office to wear a mask or face covering
  • 3. Under federal anti-discrimination laws, we have the right to refuse service to any person for any reason except for race or color

We are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and will always place your health and well-being as our top priority.

We have added a new filtration system with bipolar ionization attached to multiple HVAC systems throughout our office and had HEPA filters installed. This filtration system is similar to ones that are in hospital operating rooms. It will create reduced virus zones. We also spray the entire office at night with Electrostatic which generates charged droplets that repel one another and actively seek out environmental surfaces, which they stick to and even wrap around to coat all sides and disinfects bacteria and viruses off any surface within 2 minutes.

If you are sick or mildly sick, please stay home. If you are suffering from any of these symptoms such as fever, cough, fatigue, no appetite, shortness of breath, sputum production, runny nose, vomiting, diarrhea or body ache please reschedule your appointment. We will reschedule your appointment without penalty or fees after 14 days.

We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. These include:

  • Staff have been fully informed and trained to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • All staff, vendors and ancillary personnel are being asked to refrain from coming to this office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Every patient is also being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms.
  • We are asking our patients about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing continues to be the most important mode of prevention. Although it is a part of what we constantly do, now we are doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • We have instituted a “no handshakes no hug” policy for now.
  • We have asked all vendors that any unnecessary meetings are canceled until further notice.
  • Any exit and entrance from our office are followed by a protocol of changing shoes, scrubs and sanitization.
  • As we are an accredited medical facility, we are constantly sanitizing all surfaces. We have now vamped that up and our routine, multiple times a day, wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities. We have assigned a person that does so on a constant basis.

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this Country even better than it currently is. We are monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
