Restylane Defyne is a filler designed to replace deep volume in areas of movement, such as the smile lines and nasolabial folds. It can also be used to correct downturned lips and marionette lines. It is a more robust filler than its sister treatment, Refyne, and can be placed deeper in the skin. Following a detailed consultation with your doctor, numbing cream or ice packs can be placed on the areas to be treated to minimize discomfort. The skin is then cleansed and prepped. The procedure lasts between 10-30 minutes and is well tolerated. Following the procedure, ice packs can be placed on the treated areas to minimize bruising. Avoiding strenuous exercise, heat, and sun can also decrease the risk of swelling and bruising following your procedure. Defyne is a dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a gel holding water in the skin.
