Restylane Defyne helps patients achieve a more subtle look from their cosmetic procedures. The injection provides natural rejuvenation for up to 12 months using a smooth gel-based dermal filler. The filler helps remove folds around the nose, helping increase volume in the skin to smooth out wrinkles with a more natural look.
Defyne uses hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring sugar created in the human body. The dermal filler is unique as it is a sturdy gel providing more substantial structural support. In addition, the gel flexes naturally under the skin, allowing for facial movement and a more subtle look. Ultimately, patients who receive Defyne treatments experience desired results without looking unnatural.
Upon arriving at the dermatologist’s office, patients undergo an assessment to discuss desired outcomes, preferred treatment, and questions about Defyne. Often patients have a consultation to discuss options before scheduling the treatment. The treatment is comfortable, easy, and quick. The medical professional uses a series of injections with tiny needles, and most patients claim it is no worse than a mosquito bite.
Defyne treatments are nonsurgical, with minimal recovery required. Side effects, such as swelling, tenderness, and bruising, are possible; however, most patients can return to their routine immediately after receiving the injections. Most patients see an immediate improvement, but most see full results a week after treatment.
Defyne injections provide more natural-looking results, and patients love the smoother, more youthful skin they have. Those who receive a single treatment of Defyne injections experience results lasting as long as one year. Those wanting results longer than one year must have multiple maintenance treatments as results begin to diminish.
As mentioned above, the most common side effects include swelling, tenderness, and bruising caused by the needles. These side effects tend to diminish within a few days post-treatment. Those experiencing other symptoms or have questions about how they feel after treatment should contact their dermatologist or primary care physician to evaluate and treat symptoms.
The doctor will issue a series of instructions for patients to follow post-treatment. Most patients can return to using regular skincare products and wearing make-up. To ease tenderness and swelling, apply ice packs or cold compresses to the injection area. Avoid rubbing or manipulating the skin near the treatment area for several days after treatment. Results may not be noticeable as the skin heals, but most patients see full results within a week after treatment.

When you have younger skin, it was smooth and elastic. Much of this elasticity is a result of the hyaluronic acid in your skin, which makes the skin look healthy. Hyaluronic acid has a structured sort of like jello after it has set. However, as your skin ages, it loses the ability to produce this elastic material that keeps it looking young. Instead, your firm set jello starts to melt a bit. Another part of hyaluronic acid’s job is to bind water molecules inside the skin. This means that as your skin ages, it also becomes less able to hold water. The result is that your skin dries out, becomes thinner, and most importantly, can’t bring back its elastic texture. This lessening of your skin thickness also results in looser skin, which is the cause of wrinkling – and that aging appearance.
In the past few years, there have been several breakthroughs in research that now allow us to replace the hyaluronic acid in our skin. The same substance that is found in young skin is now made in a lab and can be stabilized so that its results will last longer. It is called “NASHA gel” for short – Non-Animal Derived Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid – a biodegradable gel. We are now able to replace what our skin has lost through aging in one quick office procedure – a completely non-surgical treatment.
One brand of hyaluronic acid, created by Galderma Company, is called Restylane, a “dermal filler.” When this dermal filler is injected into the soft tissue of your face, it restores the skin’s structure and hydration adds volume and gives it a more youthful, healthy appearance. Restylane is most useful being injected into places where the body’s natural skin structures have been broken down. This means that depressions in the skin – wrinkles – can be leveled out to match the rest of your facial skin. This effectively smooths out facial lines and even most scars, with a very natural look. Not only that, but the skin’s texture becomes softer, more elastic, and much more evenly toned.
You and our specialist will decide on the best course of treatment. Restylane will be injected straight into your skin in very small doses. The needle is extremely fine, and lidocaine in the serum ensures that there will be almost no discomfort. The whole procedure is quick and simple, and you will be able to see your results almost right away.
A single treatment of Restylane will fill any depression on the surface of your skin, and make your complexion look more youthful. These results will last for up to 9 months, but with a timed series of injections, can be extended up to 18 months.
The most common areas for Restylane to be used are:
