What is Restylane® Defyne?
Defyne is a part of the Restylane® family of FDA-approved injectable fillers. This gel-based dermal filler contains hyaluronic acid to fill lines and add volume to the skin. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body and is a safe and effective anti-aging treatment. Defyne® is a slightly firmer formulation, making it suitable for deeper lines and wrinkles.
Restylane® Defyne Benefits
Restylane® Defyne is a good option for those with moderate to severe lines around the nose and mouth area. Its thicker formula allows it to be injected into the mid to deep dermis and it can be massaged and contoured for better results. At OBI BioAesthetic Institute, we typically treat laugh lines and nasolabial folds with this product. Our patients see instant results that allow them to keep their natural expressions.
What to Expect from Treatment
You will experience minimal to no pain with this procedure, as the product contains lidocaine. A numbing cream can also be applied prior to treatment to further reduce any discomfort. One of our highly skilled practitioners will carefully inject the Defyne into the target areas, massaging where necessary. The treatment takes approximately 30 minutes or less, and results are immediately noticeable.
Little to no downtime is required, however specific post-treatment care is necessary and will be discussed during your appointment. To reduce the chance of bruising, we suggest avoiding taking items such as aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E and certain supplements one week prior to treatment. The use of arnica and bromelain may also help decrease bruising. Results can last for up to one year.
