What is Restylane Defyne?
Restylane Defyne is one of many products in the Restylane family of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers.
Restylane Defyne is an FDA-approved dermal filler for deep, moderate-to-severe nasolabial folds and marionette lines. In other words, it’s specially formulated for adding volume to significant, deep wrinkles like laugh lines or droopy lower face structures.
Restylane and Restylane Defyne are both hyaluronic acid fillers in the Restylane product line.
Restylane Defyne differs from other Restylane products in the cross-linking of its hyaluronic acid formulation. This higher-percentage cross-linking increases the filler’s density which creates a more flexible, longer-lasting solution where it’s needed most – such as the dynamic folds of the smile lines and lower face wrinkles. In short, Restylane Defyne is a sister to Restylane Refyne, but its formula is better suited for deeper, more severe facial wrinkles.
With the age-related loss of skin hydration and elasticity, deep lines may form around the corners of the nose and mouth, and these nasolabial folds and/or marionette lines become much more visible, giving the face a more tired and aged appearance.
It is generally injected in the deeper layers of the skin to reduce and soften moderate to severe folds and wrinkles. Restylane Defyne’s structural design not only gives it durability and increased longevity but also great flexibility. This flexibility makes it ideal when injected in facial areas that experience a great deal of movement, such as the smile lines.
Restylane Defyne sports more durability than its sister products in the Restylane line and generally endures up to around 12 months before retreatment may be needed!
According to the Restylane clinical studies, the most commonly observed side effects are swelling, redness, pain, and bruising at the injection site. These are typically quite mild, and they should dissipate within several days depending on the treatment site.
Dr. Brandish uses a smooth-tipped cannula to inject dermal fillers which significantly reduces bruising and downtime and makes the procedure much safer to administer.
Restylane Defyne is a cross-linked hyaluronic acid-based filler with a flexible composition, making it an effective solution for restoring natural-looking and natural-feeling volume in areas of deep, pronounced skin folds. It is a very effective solution for the treatment of areas with increased movement such as the nasolabial folds and marionette lines, otherwise known as “laugh lines”. Restylane Defyne’s improved formulation allows for gorgeous, lasting results.
