Restylane Refyne is intended for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles or folds and provides more flexible support, while Restylane Defyne is a heartier, firmer product meant for the treatment of deeper facial-wrinkles.
Both Refyne and Defyne results last for approximately 12-months.
How does this improve the current filler offerings?
“Almost every patient we see is interested in the results that fillers can produce, but sometimes dipping that first toe into the pool of injections can be the most daunting.” says About Face owner Naomi Fenlin.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer Refyne and Defyne, because these next-generation HA-fillers provide a great way to ease people into dermal-fillers. The results are definite, but natural-looking enough so that no changes are crazy-obvious to friends and family. Offering an option that lets these treatments fit easily* into a normal person’s lifestyle and schedule is a key decision-making factor.”
These two new fillers join the already impressive Restylane family-tree; with the original Restylane, Restylane Silk (designed especially for delicate, sensitive areas like the lips), and Restylane Lyft (a thicker product meant for serious support, like cheek-plumping).
If European anti-aging and injection trends are any indicators for what the US can expect in the future, there may some additional Restylane babies coming down the pike.
* It must be said however, with any injections there is always a risk of bruising or swelling.
