Restylane Refyne and Defyne are indicated for injection into the mid-to-deep dermis for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds) in patients over the age of 21. Restylane Refyne and Defyne use XpresHAn Technology (sounds like “expression”) to enhance your natural beauty because it’s a flexible and supportive formulation that has the ability to integrate with your tissue, so it's especially beneficial for injections in hyper dynamic areas of your face. Great for smokers lines, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and lips, and chin and jowl shaping.
CANNULA vs. NEEDLE
Blunt-tipped microcannulas cause less bruising, swelling, and pain and are generally safer than sharp needles. They are used for many of the injections done and can be used in all parts of the face. We use the Dermasculpt brand Microcannula which is introduced through your skin after making a small hole with a needle. From there it can be glided on a plane underneath and in your skin.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do dermal fillers work?
The Restylane family of dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring molecule that holds one thousand times its weight in water, to plump up the area it is injected into. Unlike neurotoxins which relax the muscles causing the wrinkles, dermal fillers such as Restylane are used to fill wrinkles and other areas and the results are immediate.
Which filler should I ask for?
Relax - Christine will figure that out! After discussing your goals and expectations, Christine will choose a filler depending on the area that is being treated, and your previous experience with fillers. For example, if you wish to fill wrinkles around the mouth, Christine may choose a filler that has more flexibility for a natural look.
How long does it last?
Results vary from person-to-person and depending on the area it is injected into, the amount of filler used, and the type of filler. For example, a more dynamic area, such as the area around the mouth, may not last as long as a more stationary area such as the cheek bone. Generally speaking, most fillers last anywhere from 6-12 months based upon experience.
Is there any down time?
As with any injectable, there is always a chance of bruising, swelling and soreness. Bruising is significantly reduced when blunt-tipped cannulas are used. Whether a person bruises and for how long also varies from person-to-person. It is also dependent on medications and supplements you might be taking. Over the counter medications such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), aspirin (in Excedrin), prescribed medications such blood-thinners (warfarin), and supplements such as St. John's Wort and Vitamin E can increase your chances of bruising. If possible it is advisable to refrain from taking these medications for two weeks prior to treatment. You should check with your medical provider before stopping any prescribed medication.
