Folds and wrinkles accrue as we age, lovelies, and sometimes we are fine with them. A little wrinkle when you smile accentuates the expression. A fold when you laugh heartily translates as a person who enjoys laughter. But you don’t always want to smile and you don’t always feel like laughing, yet deep folds and wrinkles may give that impression. If you are unhappy with these lines because they remain after the smiles and laughter subside, Restylane Defyne, created by Galderma, may be the filler to help. This treatment was designed to tackle those tenacious lines and leave your skin smooth.

Restylane Defyne Treatment Areas
With a higher viscosity than any other Restylane product, Restylane Defyne was designed to handle moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the mouth, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines. If your wrinkles are deeply set, Restylane Defyne can reduce the effects. Like its sister filler Refyne, this filler is composed of hyaluronic acid which is naturally produced by the human body.
It is sometimes said, “smiles are contagious.” You enjoy seeing them, and enjoy the act. Sadly, it can take a toll on your face, especially after years of the repeated motion. This is compounded by normal mid-face volume loss experienced with age until eventually the folds become deeply entrenched and you see them running from your nose to the corners of your mouth even when you’re not smiling. There are several fillers to address these folds, including Restylane Defyne and Refyne, and may be combined with an injectable cheek filler to further improve results and provide full facial rejuvenation.
These lines, named after the mouth joints of marionettes, run down from the corners of the mouth to either side of the chin. They can give the impression of displeasure or frowning, whether those people with them intend those emotions or not. Over time, these wrinkles can become deeply set due to a combination of age, volume loss, and/or genetic predisposition. Thankfully, a little filler can address these, with results lasting for at least six months.
What to Expect at Skin by Lovely
When you come to Skin by Lovely, you can expect experience, professionalism, comfort, and understanding. Our approach to aesthetic enhancement is both holistic and comprehensive. Your desired results most likely depend on several interconnected treatments, of which we have full knowledge and experience. We want that knowledge and experience to work for you.
Our Aesthetic Injection Specialists have a wealth of knowledge pertaining to our products and treatments. When you meet with your specialist, they will examine your areas of concern and your medical history, and provide recommendations to reach your ideal outcome. A treatment plan will then be created jointly so you achieve the natural, beautiful look you desire.
Your Defyne Treatment
We at Skin by Lovely understand treatment can seem scary, so we take several measures to increase comfort. After cleansing the treatment areas, your Aesthetic Injection Specialist will apply ice to numb the skin. Atop that, 0.3% lidocaine is included with the filler to further enhance your comfort. Finally, injections are performed using fine-gauge needles for precise control. This culminates in an experience which many patients describe as tolerable and well worth it.
Downtime, Results, and Follow-Up Appointments
Injectable treatments are quick, usually lasting around 30 minutes, and hardly disrupt your daily activities. We do recommend avoiding direct sunlight and strenuous activities as these can impact full results. 70% of patients experience improvements over six months, though results vary.
Follow-up appointments are necessary in order to maintain your desired look after results fade, but your Aesthetic Injection Specialist will provide more information during consultation.
Restylane Defyne FAQs
We can answer any specific questions you may have during consultation, but here are a few we are commonly asked.
Is Restylane Defyne safe and FDA-approved?
Restylane Defyne, made by Galderma, was approved by the FDA in 2016 for the correction of moderate to severe deep facial wrinkles and folds in adults 21 and over. The active ingredient hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body, making reactions to these fillers far less likely. All of our Restylane fillers are FDA-approved and administered only by registered nurses and physician assistants.
What is the difference between Restylane Defyne and Refyne?
The main difference between Restylane Defyne and Refyne is viscosity of the filler. Defyne has a higher viscosity making it best suited to address deeply set nasolabial folds and wrinkles. Discuss which of these highly regarded products is right for your needs during your consultation.
Who is and is not a good candidate for this procedure?
If you’re looking for a non-surgical solution for smile lines, Restylane Defyne is likely a good solution for you. Adults who are in good overall health and have deeply set folds or wrinkles are likely good candidates for Restylane Defyne and similar products. This procedure may not be right for you if you have experienced an allergic reaction to similar fillers in the past or if you take blood thinners. A final determination can be made during a consultation with your Aesthetic Injection Specialist.
