Restylane® Defyne

Restylane® Defyne is another type of clear gel injectable filler that has hit the market in 2017. It is used today by men and women to treat deep wrinkles/folds or to replace lost volume under the skin. Ideal for use on deep nose to mouth lines (nasolabial folds) and sad mouth corners (marionette lines). With the latest technology in hyaluronic acid fillers, Restylane® Defyne is an effective and natural way to replace your skin’s natural hyaluronic acid loss over time. It allows the hyaluronic acid gel to flex within the skin as you move your face. So whether you’re smiling, frowning, or wrinkling your face any which way, the result looks soft and natural, not puffy or stiff. Results with Restylane® Defyne are seen immediately following the procedure and have been known to yield results up to a twelve-month period of time.

Once a Restylane® Defyne treatment plan has been determined, Wilmington Dermatology professionals apply a topical Lidocaine-based numbing cream to the area(s) being treated. The numbing cream takes affect after 10-15 minutes, whereupon the area is thoroughly cleansed and prepped with an alcohol swab. A needle is then used at the appropriate injection sites; and depending on the area being treated, the procedure may require multiple injections. A typical visit lasts 30-40 minutes.

Restylane® Defyne contains Lidocaine in the gel, a common anesthetic, which helps patients tolerate the minor pinch and pressure at the injection sites. Results are seen immediately after the procedure and full correction within a week. There is minimal downtime associated with Restylane® Defyne. Patients are given a cooling agent to apply to the treated areas immediately following the procedure. Like all fillers there is the potential for swelling and bruising, but it should last no longer than a week.The cost of Restylane® Defyne is dependent on the number of syringes used and the areas treated at the time of the appointment. An optimal treatment plan and cost will be discussed during the free consultation with a provider.
