Restylane Refyne and Defyne- Naples & Fort Myers, Florida
As we age, our skin can lose collagen, making our faces look thinner and more hollow. Believe it or not, facial aging begins when we are in our 20s when genetics, natural aging, and sun exposure begin to take their toll. For patients who wish to improve their appearance without invasive surgery, Restylane Refyne and Defyne can be a great option.
What are Restylane Refyne and Defyne?
Restylane Refyne and Defyne are hyaluronic acid fillers that help to smooth our laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). Created with XpresHAn Technology, an innovative cross-linking technology, these fillers can help to restore a more youthful, natural-looking appearance while maintaining your natural expressions.
While both fillers address laugh lines, each one treats a different degree of severity. Restylane Refyne is meant to address mild to moderate laugh lines, while Restylane Defyne is meant to address moderate to severe laugh lines.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Individuals over the age of 21 who have mild to severe marionette lines and nasolabial folds can often benefit from these fillers. Candidates should be in good health. Those who are allergic to lidocaine, who have had an allergic reaction to other filler treatments, or who have a history of severe anaphylaxis should not receive these treatments. Women who are pregnant or nursing should also not receive Refyne or Defyne treatments. Overall, the best way to determine candidacy is through a consultation with Dr. Prysi.
Results and Recovery
Following treatment, patients may experience mild swelling, redness, itching, tenderness, and bruising, which will resolve with time. Results from both Restylane Refyne can last from 6-9 months, while results from Restylane Defyne can last from 9-12 months.
