In our Atlanta clinic, Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne are 2 distinct injectable options that provide the benefits of hyaluronic acid. Found naturally in the skin and other tissues, hyaluronic acid is often added to skincare products, and it’s particularly popular and effective in injectable fillers. Learn here why these Restylane products are often the preferred dermal fillers of our Atlanta patients.
How Do They Work?
Like other hyaluronic acid-based fillers, both Restylane Refyne and Defyne are made of smooth, clear gel that’s injected beneath the skin through a small, thin needle. Refyne and Defyne work by adding volume to wrinkles and folds, helping to fill them in and smooth them away. These products can also be used on areas lacking volume, including the cheeks. Both are formulated with XpresHAn Technology™, a patented form of crosslinking that offers exceptional flexibility and softness. This flexibility allows the products to settle into the contours of the face in a more natural way, creating smooth results without affecting your ability to make certain facial expressions.
Refyne and Defyne are separate products, and one may be the better option for you depending on your concerns.
Refyne is ideal for reducing the look of fine and moderate lines, while Defyne is better suited to deep wrinkles. Your provider at Peachtree Dermatology can help you decide which is the best option for you. In some cases, another type of HA-based injectable filler, or even BOTOX® Cosmetic, might be more appropriate. These products can also be combined to create a more cohesive, compelling result.
What Can I Expect?
Treatment with injectable fillers is simple, brief, and comfortable, which is one of the reasons these products are so popular. You can expect to be out of the office after about 30 minutes.
Your provider gently cleanses your face to clear away any impurities. He or she may also mark your skin to help visualize the treatment area and improve accuracy. Each injection lasts for only a moment.
After your appointment, your results will be instantly appreciable, and there’s no necessary recuperation or downtime to worry about. You can get back to your regular activities as soon as you’d like. You should, however, anticipate some bleeding, bruising, and mild tenderness, although these symptoms usually go away on their own within a day or so.
How Will I Look?
Younger! Expect to see soft volume and subtle smoothness where lines used to be. You may even notice a light “lifted” effect, depending on where your product was administered. Patients love injectables because they create noticeable results without looking overdone, especially when administered by the skincare professionals at Peachtree Dermatology Associates. You can expect your results to last between 6 and 12 months.
