As people age, their skin loses its elasticity. Over time, this loss of elasticity can lead to other changes. The lines running from the sides of the nose to the mouth corners (nasolabial folds) and the lines going from the mouth corners to the chin (marionette lines) become more pronounced.
A member of the Restylane family of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, Restylane Refyne is a specially formulated filler with XpressHAn TechnologyTM that has the ability to correct these lines, making the face look younger in a totally natural way.
What is Restylane Refyne?
Restylane Refyne is one of the dermal fillers featured in the Restylane collection that is designed to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in a more youthful facial aesthetic. This cutting-edge filler is made with natural sugars in the body that aid in moisturizing and providing volume to the skin. This results in beautiful, natural-looking results.

- A cost-effective treatment
- Highly effective ingredients
- A virtually painless procedure
- Results show up immediately
- A quick recovery with no downtime
- Long-lasting results
- Customizable treatment for various needs
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Restylane Refyne?
Patients ages 21 and over who want to see a temporary improvement of the softness and evenness of the skin around the mouth area can benefit from Restylane Refyne. As a treatment that can benefit deep into the dermis, Restylane Refyne is especially beneficial for those who are dealing with moderate to severe smile lines.
Patients who have allergies, bleed easily, are taking certain medications, or have sores near the injection site may be recommended an alternative dermal filler or treatment procedure.
What is the procedure like?
Before undergoing the procedure, patients have a consultation and exam with the practitioner to discuss medical history, determine candidacy, and assess the patient’s issues to curate a treatment plan that will elicit the desired results.
The main part of the procedure starts with a cleaning of the skin and application of a topical numbing agent. Once the treatment area has become completely numb, the doctor will administer the filler and gently massage the region to ensure that it is distributed evenly. This process is repeated so that the final results reflect the patient’s desired results. The XpressHAn in the filler works to reduce lines and folds in a way that looks natural.
What is the recovery process like?
As with all products in the Restylane family, there is little to no downtime associated with a Restylane Refyne procedure. Nonetheless, it is completely normal for some patients to experience minor swelling or bruising around the treatment area. These side effects usually fade away quickly, if they occur at all.
The results of Restylane® Refyne show up almost immediately, with the final outcome settling in by the one-week mark. Results have been found to last up to 12 months or longer. Patients typically set up follow-up treatment sessions in order to maintain their new youthful look in the future.
