A common side effect of aging includes wrinkles around the mouth and lost elasticity; our skin just doesn’t bounce back as easily as it used to. RestylaneⓇ Defyne aims to fill and restore the face’s deepest lines to their original glory, without sacrificing the ability to project emotions. Smoothing out wrinkles is a useless accomplishment without the ability to retain a natural-looking face that can still be filled with emotion.
Similar to RestylaneⓇ Refyne, RestylaneⓇ Defyne is used to treat the areas around the mouth known as the nasolabial folds (laugh lines) and marionette lines. RestylaneⓇ Defyne plumps and fills deep-set lines around the mouth with hyaluronic acid to improve elasticity and smooth out the skin. This state-of-the-art procedure can give patients back the aesthetic finish they deserve.
With over 95 years of combined experience, the staff at Shapiro Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and Skin Klinic is proud to offer RestylaneⓇ Defyne to our clients, led by Dr. Shapiro. If you are in the Scottsdale area in Arizona and are interested in receiving a RestylaneⓇ Defyne injection, contact us to schedule a consultation. We look forward to hearing from you!
What is RestylaneⓇ Defyne?
RestylaneⓇ Defyne is a dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid that works to replace the lost hyaluronic acid in the skin (less hyaluronic acid means less elasticity). Thanks to XpresHAn technology, RestylaneⓇ Defyne can last for up to 12 months after treatment, depending on post treatment care. Staying away from makeup is important after receiving an injectable to avoid infection and other side effects.
RestylaneⓇ Defyne acts immediately to create a desirable aesthetic effect and patients experience a relatively short recovery time. After treatment, patients reported noticing that their face looked natural when smiling and when at rest, as well as more accurately displaying the emotion they were feeling.
