When we go through the natural aging process, our skin begins to lose its structure and elasticity due to the breakdown and loss of collagen and elastin. Lax and loose skin contributes to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines and emphasizes the visible signs of aging. Do you want a smoother, younger looking complexion? Are you looking for a non-surgical treatment to combat the visible signs of age? LUX~A Medical Spa offers Restylane® Refyne and Defyne injectable dermal fillers to help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Defyne® and Refyne® are hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers created to instantly restore lost facial volume and improve the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds, like nasolabial folds and marionette lines.

What is Restylane® Defyne?
This hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler is used to fill in nasolabial folds, improve the appearance of marionette lines and other mild to moderate facial lines and wrinkles, and restore volume to the lower face and mouth areas. Defyne® is designed to improve the visible signs of aging while allowing you to maintain your natural appearance and facial expressions. This injectable filler is thicker than its counterpart, Refyne®, and is used to improve the appearance of more severe signs of aging.
Restylane® Defyne is injected with a fine needle directly beneath the skin of the treatment area. Injection sessions can take between 15 and 30 minutes depending on the area being treated and the patient’s desired results. Multiple treatment sessions may be required in order to achieve desired aesthetic results.
This is a minimally-invasive aesthetic treatment, and there is minimal downtime associated with Defyne® injections. Defyne® is formulated with lidocaine to reduce any discomfort patients may experience during an injection session, and at the patient’s request, a topical numbing cream can be applied prior to an injection session in order to further reduce discomfort.
Some patients may experience some mild swelling, redness, bruising or discomfort at the injections site. These side effects are temporary and should subside within a few days of an injection session.
What is Restylane® Refyne?
Restylane® Refyne is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler designed to improve the appearance of laugh lines like nasolabial folds and marionette lines for up to one year. Refyne® helps restore a smoother, younger looking appearance while allowing you to maintain your natural facial expressions.
Injection sessions typically take between 30 and 45 minutes. Refyne® injection sessions can vary in length depending on the area or areas being treated and the patient’s desired aesthetic results. Multiple treatment sessions may be required in order to achieve desired results. Results may vary. Refyne® is formulated with lidocaine to reduce any discomfort experienced during an injection session. An additional topical numbing cream can be applied to the treatment area prior to an injection session, at the patient’s request.
Some patients may experience some mild swelling, bruising, itching, or tenderness at the injection site. These side effects are temporary and typically subside within a few days of an injection session.
