Restylane® Defyne™ is another new development from the highly respected Restylane® product line that has been recently approved by the FDA to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Dr. Gabriel Patino, director of The Cosmetic Surgical Center of El Cerrito, recommends this safe and natural treatment for patients who want to rejuvenate their facial appearance without surgery. A member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Patino is highly respected by his colleagues and patients and provides excellence in comprehensive cosmetic care for residents of El Cerrito, Oakland, Berkeley, and surrounding areas in Northern California.
What Can Restylane® Defyne™ Do for My Appearance?
Restylane® Defyne™ is an advanced gel formula that specifically targets deep folds and wrinkles in the facial skin. Like other renowned Restylane® products, Restylane® Defyne™ is a hyaluronic acid-based (HA) formula produced from plant-sourced HA much like that produced by our bodies. HA increases natural skin volume by attracting and retaining up to 1,000 times its weight in moisture, producing plumper and fuller skin cells.
What Makes Restylane® Defyne™ Superior to Other Dermal Fillers?
Restylane® Defyne™ is a unique gel formula that delivers hyaluronic acid (HA) directly into deeper skin layers, specifically treating deeper folds and wrinkles.
How Should I Prepare for Restylane® Defyne™ Injections?
In preparation for your treatment, Dr. Patino will evaluate your medical history and condition, as well as any other pertinent medical information. You may be advised to suspend certain medications before treatment or to postpone Restylane® Defyne™ injections temporarily if you have recently had other dermal filler treatments, or are currently experiencing any infection or skin irritation in the area to be treated.
How Long Do Restylane® Defyne™ Results Last?
Restylane® Defyne™ treatments produce results that typically last between six and nine months in most patients.
What Can I Expect from a Restylane® Defyne™ Treatment?
A topical numbing agent is applied to the treatment area before treatment to prevent any discomfort during the procedure. While some patients may experience minor swelling or soreness following the treatment, there is no downtime or recovery period after Restylane® Refyne™ injections. You may return to normal activities immediately after the procedure.
