One of the first signs of aging is facial wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, caused by natural volume loss and facial expressions like smiling and laughing. At Cosmetica Plastic Surgery and Anti-Aging, we offer Restylane Refyne and Defyne to improve your wrinkles at varying severities.
Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne are injectable dermal fillers that are used to smooth out lines around the nose and mouth. The two formulas are slightly different in particle size, allowing them to treat either moderate or severe lines and folds. The formulas contain hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body to give the skin moisture. When added to the skin, Restylane Refyne and Defyne allow patients to express themselves while looking younger.
Candidates for Restylane Refyne and Defyne are those who are looking for a nonsurgical solution to inmoving their moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose, mouth, and chin. These are typically the result of a loss of facial volume and skin elasticity with age. Restylane Refyne can Improve moderate wrinkles, while Restylane Defyne is typically chosen for more severe wrinkles. The formulas are approved for those 21 and over. Patients that are pregnant or breastfeeding may not be candidates for treatment.
Before the injection process, Adley DaSilva will cleanse the skin and apply a topical numbing cream to maximize patient comfort. Injection points around the nose, mouth, and chin will then be identified. Adley will then use a thin needle to place either Restylane Refyne or Restylane Defyne below the skin. This process can take about 15 minutes to complete.
