Welcome, lovelies. Who doesn’t enjoy a warm smile or a good laugh? These are both good things, but age can still exact a toll leaving wrinkles and folds you may not want to see in the mirror. Over time, your face loses volume. With repeated facial expressions, lines in the skin accrue. Add in genetic influence and these areas cement into folds and wrinkles. Expression lines which appear when you smile, frown, or purse your lips, were once difficult to treat with conventional fillers. Restylane Refyne, created by Galderma, was made to address these issues and may serve to fade these marks so they are less pronounced.

Restylane Refyne Treatment Areas
Restylane Refyne is a dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally produced in the human body. Its thicker than its predecessor Restylane-L making it better suited to address mild to moderate expression lines around the mouth, where skin and tissue are also thick and require flexibility.
Generally, being a happy person who frequently smiles is a good thing, but mid-face volume loss along with repeated facial movement can lead to the development of these folds which run from the nose to the corners of the mouth. These nasolabial folds are commonly known as “smile lines” or “laugh lines”. Alone or in combination with other fillers like Restylane Lyft, we can smooth these lines with a natural-looking finish.
Marionette lines are so called as they run down from the corners of the mouth and circumscribe the chin, appearing like the mouth joint on marionettes. Many people who have these wrinkles dislike them because of the way the give the impression they are upset or displeased when they are not. Dermal fillers to the rescue!
What to Expect at Skin by Lovely
If we are to put it in the most direct terms: we desire to help you achieve your desired look. We accomplish this by informing you of the best holistic approach to treat your areas of concern. While our Aesthetic Injection Specialists have vast experience, they know you are unique and have unique goals. Further, our facilities include the latest technology and amenities, but are also designed for your comfort and an environment of positivity and care.
The ultimate goal of consultation is to work with your Aesthetic Injection Specialist to develop a treatment plan specifically designed to reach your desired results. Your specialist will review your medical history and conduct an examination, but they will also listen thoughtfully and propose the best means to achieve what you want. This may include a combination of fillers and other treatments to help you achieve your loveliest results.
Your Refyne Treatment
After cleansing the treatment area, ice may be applied for comfort. Filler injections, conducted with fine-gauge needles for precision and control, also contain 0.3% lidocaine to improve your comfort during treatment. The sensation during injection is described by many patients as little more than pin pricks and well tolerated. Your Aesthetic Injection Specialist will administer a series of injections while smoothing and molding the filler for more precise results. If other products are prescribed to provide better results, such as Restylane Silk for lips or Restylane Lyft for cheeks, they will also be administered during this time.
Downtime, Results, and Follow-Up Appointments
Many are surprised to learn our treatments have little to no downtime. Sometimes dubbed “lunchtime procedures”, you’ll be in and out with little disruption to your usual day. We only ask you to refrain from direct sunlight and strenuous activities. Although results vary, 80% of patients report great satisfaction with the procedure after six months, with some experiencing results up to one year.
Restylane Refyne results are temporary, as with all fillers, and require follow-up appointments to maintain. This will be explained further during your consultation.
Restylane Refyne FAQs
We are experts in our products and gladly provide answers. Here are several questions we are commonly asked.
Is Restylane Refyne safe and FDA-approved?
Restylane Refyne, made by Galderma, was approved by the FDA in 2016 for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds in adults 21 and over. Its main component, hyaluronic acid, is produced naturally by the human body so the injection is regarded as safe for most patients.
What is the difference between Restylane Refyne and Defyne?
The main difference between Restylane Refyne and Defyne is thickness. Refyne is not as thick making it more suited to address moderate to severe nasolabial folds and wrinkles that are not deeply set.
Who is and is not a good candidate for treatment?
If you are at least 21 years old, in good overall health, and seek a noninvasive treatment for your folds and wrinkles, you may be a good candidate. You may need to avoid this procedure if you have experienced a reaction to past fillers, or are prone to bleeding disorders. If you are uncertain, meet with one of our Aesthetic Injection Specialists who can make a final determination based on your medical history and other factors.
