Looking for Natural Result for Every Expression You Make…

Your unique facial expressions show the world what you think and how you feel, you smirk, frown, pucker up and smile from ear to ear.

But over time, your skin loses volume and those laugh lines become more noticeable. That’s when it may be time for Restylane Refyne or Restalyne Defyne. These two products are designed using a unique technology called XpresHan Technology, therefore each product is designed to give you just the right amount of lift, along with the flexibility to show a range of facial expressions without looking unnatural.

Restylane Refyne and Restlane Defyne are the latest FDA approved additions to the Restylane portfolio and have been used over 600,000 times worldwide. It has been used under the name Emervel since 2010 in the rest of the world.

U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved Restylane® injectable gel is a cosmetic “filler” that contains hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance that is found in the body. HA gives volume and elasticity to the skin, but as the body ages, HA levels decrease, resulting in loose skin and wrinkling. When injected, Restylane gel is designed to plump the skin beneath lines and wrinkles, smoothing them out and making them less noticeable.

The most common areas for Restylane treatment are the glabellar lines (which run between the eyebrows) and the nasolabial folds (which run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth). Restylane® injectable gel is also FDA-approved, for those 21 and older, for enhancing the lips. According to manufacturer Medicis, results can last for up to 6 months, at which point the hyaluronic acid is reabsorbed by the body.

Advantages Of Restylane® Injectable Gel

One significant advantage that Restylane® Injectable gel has over other facial fillers made with hyaluronic acid is that it contains nothing of animal origin. As a result, it does not require a potential user to undergo allergy testing, which can sometimes take weeks. Another advantage is that Restylane® injections are performed in-office, usually by a dermatologist, in less than half an hour, and require little-to-no downtime for the patient.

Benefits Of Restylane® Injectable Gel

When injected, Restylane® gel plumps up glabellar lines and nasolabial folds, making skin appear younger and look smoother. When used for lip enhancement, it makes the lips fuller and gives them more definition.

Side Effects Of Restylane® Injectable Gel

The most common side effects of Restylane® injectable gel are swelling, redness, pain, bruising and tenderness in and around the injection sites. They typically go away within a week. Although considered safe for most patients, Restylane® injections carry a risk of infection, bleeding or allergic reaction.
