As we age, lines and wrinkles around our nose and mouth are often the first to form. Patients who wish to eliminate these lines without common invasive surgery can often benefit from Restylane® Defyne to rejuvenate their facial appearance.
What is Restylane® Defyne?
Restylane® Defyne is a hyaluronic acid filler created to soften the appearance of moderate to severe nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Created with XpresHAn technology, Restylane® Defyne is created to move with the skin so patients can retain the ability to make natural-looking facial expressions and movements.
Restylane® Defyne also contains a small amount of lidocaine, so ensure patients comfort during injections. A topical anesthetic can also be applied if desired. Non-surgical treatments can take anywhere from 20-40 minutes to complete, depending on the size of the treatment area.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Restylane® Defyne is FDA-approved for use in adults ages 21 and older. Individuals who wish to smooth their facial lines and wrinkles can often benefit from this filler. Patients who wish to eliminate their marionette lines and nasolabial folds without undergoing surgery often choose to undergo Defyne treatments.
Restylane® Defyne Results
Following treatment, patients may experience itching, swelling, bruising, or redness at the treatment sites. Results from Restylane® Defyne can last up to 12 months.
