What Is Restylane® Refyne™?

In our youth, our skin is naturally supple, illuminated, and filled with volume-producing collagen and elastin. Over time, our skin becomes thinner and less elastic. Mature skin is less able than younger skin to retain water, and other hydrating minerals naturally found within and held by the skin. The result is the development and appearance of wrinkles and fine lines in the skin, which can produce a tired, withdrawn appearance. Regular treatments with dermal fillers help to restore and maintain your youthful appearance for regaining self-confidence and gracefully growing older. Restylane® fillers are cosmetic dermal injectables that can be used to temporarily fill fine lines and wrinkles with adequate tissue coverage.

Compared to other fillers, Restylane ® Refyne ™ is a softer dermal filler with a substantial degree of flexibility beneficial for treating dynamic areas of the face, which experience constant, recurring movement, such as the area around the lips, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. Using XpresHAn Technology ™, this Restylane® filler softens the appearance of laugh lines, including nasolabial folds and marionette lines, for a rejuvenated, natural look to your face while allowing you to maintain your normal facial expressions. Injections with Restylane ® Refyne ™ can be customized to your specific skin care concerns, addressing lines and wrinkles in the areas where you desire improvements and balancing your natural features.

Where Is Restylane® Refyne™ Used?

Restylane ® offers a complete range of dermal fillers specially formulated to enhance the skin through improvements to skin volume and elasticity. Restylane ® SKINBOOSTERS ™ gradually increases the skin's hydration, smoothing the skin and correcting visible depressions and lines. Restylane ® Silk, also called Restylane ® for lips, is the first FDA-approved product specifically designed to augment the lips and smooth wrinkles around the mouth in patients over the age of 21. Restylane ® Defyne ™ helps smooth out deep laugh lines and enhances the projection of the chin in patients over 21.

Complementary to other Restylane ® formulations, Restylane® Refyne ™ is a revolutionary dermal filler used to smooth away laugh lines or the wrinkles and folds that often form at the corners of the mouth and the creases of the cheeks near the nose. Laugh lines may include nasolabial folds or creases that run from the nose's sides to the mouth's corners, marionette lines (melomental folds), or vertical lines that run between the mouth and the chin. As we age, our facial skin loses elasticity and volume, making our laugh lines more pronounced.

Restylane® Refyne ™ injectable gel is designed to temporarily counter this effect by smoothing out these wrinkles and folds, resorting to a natural, softened look to the face.

How Does Restylane® Work?

Restylane® Refyne™ is an FDA-approved dermal filler injected under the facial skin. Once in place, the hyaluronic acid formula smooths away the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines, particularly in the lower-to-midface region. Restylane® Refyne™ is made from a special formulation centered around hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar in the body that provides our skin with moisture, elasticity, and volume. This formula contains a small amount of lidocaine, a safe, commonly used local anesthetic that numbs the skin during injections.

Restylane® Refyne™ is made using a pioneering manufacturing process called XpresHAn Technology™. This process creates a highly smooth injectable gel that can provide a natural, soft appearance through injection into the skin. During the procedure, Restylane® Refyne™ is injected into the facial skin through a tiny needle. The precise location of injections during the procedure may vary depending on the patient's specific requirements and desired improvements. The procedure is quick, relatively painless, and typically requires only 15 –30 minutes to complete.

How Long Does Restylane® Refyne™ Last?

The development and availability of dermal fillers within the field of nonsurgical clinical skin treatments offer various unique benefits, including their ability to be customized to each patient for tailored results that best complement each individual, their innovative formulations that replenish the skin with essential substances, and proteins, and their lasting power, particularly compared with topical treatments. Restylane® Refyne™ injectable gel helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and facial wrinkles, with visible results that last.

Though all dermal fillers offer temporary results, patients who receive these injections may expect improved skin elasticity, facial rejuvenation, and a naturally boosted appearance with Restylane® before and after results that may last up to a full year. Patients who desire to retain these improvements may schedule a follow-up, supplementary filler appointments. Contact our office today to schedule your appointment with a Gainesville dermatologist.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Cosmetic Fillers?

The vast majority of patients who are in good general health, over the age of 21, and seek to improve the appearance of moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds are considered good candidates for treatment with Restylane® dermal fillers. Patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, have a history of severe allergies to lidocaine or any of the ingredients in the Restylane® Refyne™ formulation, those with bleeding disorders, or who take medications that affect bleeding and clotting of blood may not be eligible to receive Restylane® injections. The best way to determine your candidacy for treatment with Restylane® Refyne™ is to discuss these factors and your skin care goals with your skin care specialist in Gainesville, FL. In general, Restylane® products are approved by the FDA and are considered safe to use in specific treatment areas. Contact Gainesville Dermatology Aesthetic Center to determine the best dermal filler to meet your skin goals.

Do Facial Fillers Hurt?

As with any skin injection, dermal fillers may cause mild discomfort at the injection site. However, most patients receiving injections with Restylane® products report experiencing little or no pain or discomfort. Restylane® Refyne™ is formulated with a small amount of lidocaine, a popular, local anesthetic ingredient used in various fillers, which helps minimize any discomfort during the procedure. Additionally, a topical numbing cream may be applied to the patient's skin prior to the treatment to ensure any discomfort is virtually nonexistent. Injections may cause minor bruising and swelling along the dermis. As such, our dermatologists recommend derm filler patients avoid blood-thinning medications for at least a week prior to treatment. Contact our dermatology office for additional information.

How Many Restylane® Treatments Will I Need?

The degree, type, extent, and signs of visible aging vary from patient to patient due to a wide range of factors unique to each person, such as certain genetic factors and accumulated exposure to ultraviolet radiation (sun exposure), among other considerations. Because our skin ages uniquely, the amount of Restylane® Refyne™ used to address your specific aesthetic skin requirements will vary. The number of treatments you require may also vary. Restylane® Refyne™ offers visible, lasting results that may remain for up to 1 year following initial injections. Factors such as your overall health, activity levels, metabolism, and the degree to which you move your face can influence how long your results will last. Patients seeking to retain the results produced with Restylane® Refyne™ injections may receive additional injections of this dermal filler for a long-term appearance of skin smoothness.

Potential Restylane® Refyne™ Side Effects

When injected into the skin by a professional, certified provider, treatments with Restylane® Refyne™ are confirmed to be safe and effective for eliminating the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. While some patients may experience side effects following their treatment, side effects are typically rare, mild in nature, and resolve quickly. Potential side effects from injections with Restylane® Refyne™ may include swelling, bruising, itching, and redness in or near the injection site. Any discomfort or tenderness will likely subside within days after the procedure. Patients should not receive Restylane® Refyne™ injections if they have a history of severe allergic reactions, an allergy to lidocaine, or if they are pregnant or breastfeeding.
