Newly FDA-approved fillers, Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne, provide treatment for "laugh lines" and other facial wrinkles. We provide both here at Marcus Medical in Manhattan Beach.
What Makes Restylane Defyne and Restylane Refyne Different?
These two new products from Galderma have been called “next-generation” hyaluronic acid fillers. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance that occurs naturally in the body, binds to water, and retains moisture in the skin. It fills in the spaces between fibers of collagen and elastin and plumps up the skin for a more youthful look.
Unlike other Hyaluronic acid fillers, Restylane Defyne and Restylane Refyne incorporate new “XpresHAn” technology, which allows for movement of the fillers within the face with any facial expression, resulting in a more natural appearance. Whether you are laughing, smiling, frowning, or making any expression that causes the face to wrinkle, these HA (Hyaluronic acid) gels can flex within your skin for a look that is soft, natural, and never stiff.
This unique characteristic makes Restylane Defyne and Restylane Refyne particularly suitable for the treatment of laugh lines. These products are both designed and FDA approved for mid to deep injection into the facial tissue to correct facial wrinkles and folds. Although they are being newly introduced in the U.S., they have been approved and used in Europe since 2010 under the name “Emervel.”
