What is Restylane Refyne?
Restylane Refyne is part of the Restylane family and, like most fillers, is a hyaluronic acid. It’s different in that this filler has the ability to ‘move’ with your face. Unlike older hyaluronic fillers that can ‘bunch up’ or ‘lump up’ around the mouth or eyes when smiling or animating, the new Restylane Refyne product moves with your face to create a natural and non-overfilled appearance.
Restylan Refyne, like it’s slightly thicker sister product Restylane Defyne, consists of new XpresHan technology that allows the filler to ‘stretch’ with movement and then go back to its original form at rest maintaining natural expression.
Who is a candidate for Restylane Refyne?
Anyone with lines around the mouth such as nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and upper or lower cheek lines is a candidate. Because of its ability to stretch and move with the face, and its thinner nature as compared to Restylane Defyne and regular Restylane, this product works amazingly well in the lips.
The product is smooth and is injected in our practice with a blunt micro cannula decreasing bruising by greater than 95%. Restylane Refyne is manufactured with lidocaine to make the treatment more comfortable.
What should I expect after a Restylane Refyne treatment?
Since we use blunt cannulas, the after effects of filler treatment are minimal. Most individuals will have minimal swelling, if any, for 24 hours with a greater than 95% chance of no bruising. Because of its unique technology, many patients don’t swell at all. The results are seen immediately.
How long does Restylane Refyne last?
It is FDA approved to last 1 year.
