How Do Restylane® Refyne & Defyne Work?

Both Restylane® Refyne and Defyne are dermal fillers that are injected just under the facial skin. Once the injection is completed, the product will help smooth away your lines and wrinkles. In this way, Restylane® Refyne and Defyne both serve as minimally-invasive, low-risk cosmetic dermatology options.

How are Refyne and Defyne different from the other fillers already available? These breakthrough injectable fillers will actually move and contour with your face as you make facial expressions, which results in a natural appearance that does not appear to be forced, modified, or altered in any way. If a soft, natural, and never-stiff look is what you would like to achieve, Refyne and Defyne could be the right choice for you.

Fast Facts On Restylane Refyne and Defyne

Areas Treated:
Restylane Refyne and Defyne are used to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as deep laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines).

Results:
The appearance of wrinkles and facial folds are smoothed by adding structure and volume underneath and bringing creases back up to the surface.

Treatment Interval:
Most patients experience correction for 9-12 months, however some patients may need to return for another treatment before that time.

Treatment Time:
30 minutes

Recovery Time:
Immediately after the treatment, there may be temporary swelling or redness, for the first day. As with any injectable filler, there is a chance of bruising, particularly in individuals taking aspirin or other medications that may thin the blood. This typically resolves in less than one week. Your nurse or physician injector can educate you on ways to avoid or decrease the likelihood of this happening.
