Aging has a way of showing up on our faces in ways we’d prefer it didn’t. The Restylane® line of dermal fillers can help in a number of ways. Restylane® Defyne is specifically formulated to help with smoothing mild to moderate wrinkles and folds. It is great for rejuvenating the face, particularly around the mouth.
What Is Restylane® Defyne?
Restylane® Defyne is a hyaluronic acid gel that is injected into the target area. Once injected, it immediately adds volume to the area, effectively smoothing out marionette lines and nasolabial folds. The hyaluronic acid particles actually cross-link with each other, which is one of the reasons this filler is so effective. It helps to smooth out the targeted area, leaving you looking younger and more refreshed.
Using this treatment, we can:
- Treat wrinkles between the corners of the mouth and jawline (marionette lines)
- Treat wrinkles that run from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth (nasolabial folds)
- Reduce the appearance of mild to moderate folds near the mouth
There is lidocaine in the Restylane® Defyne injections. This is done to make sure you are comfortable while the treatment is happening as well as afterward.
This is a great treatment option for many people, but not everyone. This is why a consultation where we discuss your medical history and allergies is important. Pregnant and breastfeeding women will want to wait to have this treatment because the safety of this product has not been established in these cases yet.
What to Expect with Restylane® Defyne Treatments
The first step is always to have a consultation where we can discuss your needs and your goals. A series of injections are given. The treatment itself can usually be done in as little as 15-30 minutes. Due to the fact that everyone’s bodies metabolize substances differently, how long your results last can vary. A topical numbing cream can be applied to the treatment areas prior to injections in order to ensure your comfort.
Why Choose Restylane® Defyne?
This treatment is a great choice for many people. Unlike other options out there, Restylane® Defyne will not impact your ability to make facial expressions. Your results look extremely natural.
