What is Restylane® Defyne?
Restylane® Defyne is a hyaluronic dermal filler created to replenish lost facial volume. Created with Galderma’s XpresHAn technology, the hyaluronic acid particles are cross-linked, providing flexibility and smoothness. This filler can be used to treat nasolabial folds and lines that run from the corners of the nose to the mouth, smooth marionette lines, which run from the corners of the mouth to the chin, address moderate-to-severe wrinkles and folds, and provide rejuvenation in the lower face.
Who is a Candidate?
Individuals 21 years and older who have moderate-to-severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth can often benefit from Restylane® Defyne. Ideal candidates will be in good health overall. Women who are breastfeeding or are pregnant should not receive these injections. A consultation with Dr. Jennifer Janiga or our nurse practitioner Darci Page NP-C can help to best determine if this treatment option is right for you.
Prior to your injections, a topical anesthetic can be applied, though it often isn’t necessary, as Restylane® Defyne contains lidocaine, which a local anesthetic. Then, a fine-gauge needle will perform a series of injections into the treatment area(s). The treatment is quick, usually only taking about 15-30 minutes to complete, depending on the number of treatment areas.
Results & Recovery
Patients may experience mild swelling and bruising following treatment, which will resolve with time. It is recommended that patients refrain from exercise for 24 hours following treatment to see best results. Results from Restylane® Defyne can last up to 12 months.
