Out of all the signs of aging that people experience, none are more talked about than wrinkles and age lines. While these symptoms are a totally normal part of the aging process, most people would like to keep them at bay for as long as possible.
Restylane Defyne is one of the newest treatments available for addressing wrinkles and aging lines. Whether they manifest in the form of smile lines, nasolabial folds, or marionette lines that cause a downward facing angle at the mouth, this dermal filler can help diminish those pervasive lines for up to 12 months or longer. Patients can now enjoy a refreshed, more youthful appearance.
What is Restylane Defyne?
Like other members of the Restylane family, Restylane Defyne is a hyaluronic acid-based gel that is used to treat fine lines in the area around the mouth and nose. The filler was developed using the XpressHAn Technology, which promotes higher flexibility within the skin. This aspect of the gel makes it feel completely natural as the patient smiles, frowns, or cries. There is no stiffness.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a completely safe material that is naturally produced by the human body. Because this compound is naturally found in human skin, the fillers provide results that are remarkably natural, safe, and effective.
What are the benefits of Restylane Contour?
- Xpreshan technology maintains flexibility and dynamic movement in the treatment area
- Remarkably natural-looking results that can last for up to a year
- Quick 30-minute procedure with minimal downtime
- Initial results show up immediately, and the final results set in by the one-week mark
Who is a good candidate for Restylane Defyne?
This dermal filler is specially designed to address nasolabial folds. Patients ages 21 and over that are thinking of getting this injectable should take into consideration the following factors to determine if they are a good candidate:
- Suffering from severe nasolabial folds
- Looking for a safe treatment option
- Looking for natural-looking, long-lasting results
- Non-invasive treatment
The patient’s medical history will be reviewed during the consultation to ensure that they are in good overall health. Women that are pregnant or breastfeeding or have had adverse reactions to dermal fillers in the past might not be ideal candidates for this particular treatment.
What is the treatment process like?
Before anything, a consultation will be carried out to determine the patient’s goals and candidacy for Restylane Defyne. During this time, predetermined injection sites will be selected based on the patient’s desired outcomes.
During the procedure, a series of injections are made. The technique that is employed and the depth at which the skin is penetrated vary depending on what issue is being targeted. After administering the treatment, the practitioner will lightly massage the treatment area to ensure that it reaches the surrounding tissue and is evenly distributed.
What is the recovery like?
Restylane Defyne facial fillers do not require any downtime. While it is normal for patients to experience some slight swelling and bruising, they are able to carry on with their everyday routines as soon as they leave the office. The results of Restylane Defyne are often seen immediately following the procedure.
Restylane Defyne is completely safe to use, and there are no side effects. While Restylane Defyne was only approved by the FDA in 2016, the same facial filler has been in use in Europe since 2010.
