The Restylane Refyne and Defyne Filler Advantage

The FDA recently approved both Restylane Refyne and Defyne for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Both smooth out facial lines and plump up deep creases. Between the two dermal fillers, they can improve the appearance of:

  • Laugh lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines

Both new Restylane fillers are formulated with hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that occurs naturally in the body, binds to water, and retains moisture in the skin while helping maintain a vibrant appearance. HA works by filling in the spaces between collagen and elastin, creating a plumping, volumizing effect that makes the skin look more youthful.

These fillers also contain the innovative HA cross-linking technology known as XpresHAn. This technology is able to provide natural-looking results as the dermal fillers move within the skin as you make facial expressions. Patients no longer have to worry about the fake, injected or unnatural look. When using these injectables, the filler integrates within the tissue and flexes with facial movements like smiling, laughing or even frowning. Both Restylane fillers create a soft, natural-looking result and can be used alone or together for a full facial rejuvenation.

According to Galderma, the manufacturer behind Restylane fillers, Refyne is perfect for the treatment of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds in the face, such as laugh lines. While Restylane Defyne helps smooth out deep laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). With both treatments, your face will never look like you’ve had “work done,” giving you a more youthful appearance with immediate results at a fraction of the cost of surgery, and without the associated risks or downtime.

Top Questions about Restylane Injectables

How does Restylane Refyne and Defyne work?

Both dermal fillers are manufactured using the XpresHAn technology, which is a new method of cross-linking hyaluronic acid. These gel-type dermal fillers remain flexible within the skin, allowing for natural facial movements. The results are soft and natural rather than stiff or puffy.

Can both fillers be used in multiple areas?

Both fillers are extremely versatile and can be used in multiple areas. It is also safe to use these fillers with a combination of facial treatments, such as Botox injections around the eyes.

Do injectable wrinkle treatments hurt?

Both dermal fillers contain lidocaine, which effectively numbs the treatment area when injected, keeping discomfort to a minimum.

How long do the results last?

Clinical studies have shown that up to 95% of patients treated with either dermal filler maintained results for up to 12 months. However, you may return for a follow-up appointment for touch-ups when necessary. The results may vary from patient to patient.

Is there any downtime or recovery after treatment?

There is no required downtime for Restylane dermal fillers. You can return to work or daily activities after treatment.

Are these new facial fillers safe?

Absolutely. Both of these dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which is naturally produced by the body. While both fillers may be new in the U.S., they have been used safely in Europe since 2010 under the brand name Emervel.

Injectable fillers have been a major innovation in the pursuit of effective anti-aging and wrinkle treatments. Rather than expensive creams or anti-aging emollients in a jar or a tube, dermal fillers provide people with a non-surgical solution to anti-aging that produces real results. After a single treatment, your face will have a smoother, fresher, more youthful appearance without any downtime.
