Our skin loses elasticity and volume as we age, which causes it to sag and develop wrinkles. Luckily, such signs of aging can be addressed with dermal fillers like Restylane® Defyne.
Restylane® Defyne is ideal for you if you’re looking to get rid of smile lines, marionette lines, or a receding chin without going under the knife.
Read on to find out more about Defyne by Restylane®!
What Is Restylane® Defyne?
Restylane® Defyne is a clinically-proven hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that helps integrate the filler deep within the tissue. Its unique formulation supports the complete range of your facial expressions, thus providing you with a natural, smoother, younger, and more rejuvenated look.
Since Defyne is HA-based, a naturally occurring compound in the body, it is more easily absorbed and poses much fewer risks than other non-HA-based fillers.
What Can Defyne Do For Your Skin?
Restylane® Defyne helps fill in and smooth out the deep static wrinkles on your skin. Primarily, it is used to reduce the appearance of:
- Deep nasolabial folds – the lines that extend from the sides of your nose to the outer corners of your mouth.
- Marionette lines – the lines that extend from the corners of your mouth to the chin.
Defyne fillers can also be used for chin augmentation and to correct mild to moderate chin retrusion. This is when your chin recedes towards the neck, creating an imbalance of facial features.
Is The Procedure Painful?
Not really. Restylane® Defyne is infused with lidocaine, which is an anesthetic, thus making the procedure virtually painless.
The entire procedure takes less than 30 minutes to complete and you can get back to your daily routine right after. The procedure involves injecting fillers into the target areas based on the movement of your face, which allows the filler to move with your facial expressions.
As a result, the results look natural and not overdone.
What Is Recovery Like?
There’s no downtime involved, but it’s possible to experience mild swelling and bruising at the injection, but these will subside within a few days.
Although it is common to observe an improvement in the targeted area after the injection, the full effects can usually take up to a week to kick in.
Is Restylane® Defyne Permanent?
Restylane® Defyne is made of cross-linked hyaluronic acid, which is naturally produced and absorbed by the body. Therefore, it is not permanent, but the results can last up to a year.
So, if you want to maintain the results, you will need touch-ups every few months or so, depending on how fast your body can metabolize the substance.
Looking to reduce the appearance of static wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines on your face or to enhance the contours of your chin?
