Restylane® Defyne

Restylane in Los Angeles

Restylane® and Restylane Lyft are approved for treating moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Because Restylane Lyft is composed of larger gel particles, it is intended for deeper injection than Restylane to volumize skin for structural support and lift. Dr. Behroozan can best determine which treatment is right for you.

Restylane® and Restylane Lyft are Different from Botox® Cosmetic

Restylane® and Restylane Lyft are cosmetic dermal fillers injected into the skin to smooth facial wrinkles and folds. In contrast, Botox® Cosmetic is a drug that blocks nerve transmission and relaxes the muscles that cause frown lines between your eyebrows.

Restylane® and Restylane Lyft are Different from Animal-Based Hyaluronic Acids and Bovine Collagen Products

Restylane® and Restylane Lyft contain no animal proteins. This limits any risk of animal-based disease transmission or allergic reactions. Restylane and Restylane Lyft do not require an allergy test and can be administered immediately, so there is no waiting for treatments. Restylane and Restylane Lyft contain trace amounts of gram-positive bacterial proteins and are contraindicated for patients with a history of allergies to such material.

Restylane and Restylane Lyft are crystal-clear, non-animal derived gels that are injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The result is an instant long-lasting, natural enhancement that is gentle and safe.

Many people are showing interest in correcting deep wrinkles and folds, shaping facial contours and augmenting the lips. These fillers can provide a natural beauty lift using your body’s own material. Restylane and Restylane Lyft treatments are quick and easy. In the time it takes you to shower, you can look years younger. Injections are performed in the office and can be done with little or no topical numbing cream. Treatments last between 15-30 minutes, with absolutely no downtime, and your results will last for approximately 6 months.

Restylane and Restylane Lyft can be used to fill minor to moderate lines and wrinkles, and are very effective around the eyes, nose, and mouth. They can also be used to plump up the lips. Results are natural looking and long lasting.

How Restylane Defyne Works

Restylane Defyne is a hyaluronic acid-based gel used to treat so-called “laugh lines” around the mouth and the nose. The filler is manufactured using the XpressHAn Technology, which ensures better flexibility within your skin. This means that the gel will feel completely natural as you smile, frown or cry and won’t feel stiff at all.Hyaluronic acid (HA) is completely safe and naturally produced by the human body and is also used in other Restylane fillers such as:

  • Restylane
  • Restylane-L
  • Restylane Silk
  • Restylane Refyne

Because hyaluronic acid is a naturally found material in human skin, these types of fillers give a very “natural” result and are safe and effective for all patients.

Recovery & Results

Restylane Defyne facial filler requires no downtime. Some patients may experience slight swelling and bruising, but other than that, you can continue your normal daily routine as soon as you leave the doctor’s office. The results of Defyne can be seen immediately.

Are There any Side Effects Associated with Restylane Defyne?

No. Restylane Defyne is completely safe to use, so you don’t have to worry about undesired side effects. This facial filler has been in use in Europe since 2010, although under a different brand name (Emervel) and was approved by the FDA in 2016.
