A new generation of Hyaluronic Acid fillers are literally changing the face(s) of cosmetic dermatology. What exactly sets Restylane Refyne® and Restylane Defyne® apart from the average dermal filler? Mobility. Restylane Refyne and Defyne® work not unlike other fillers-by increasing facial volume and decreasing wrinkles-but they do so while retaining your natural expressions. Restylane Refyne and Defyne® are made from a custom HA (Hyaluronic Acid) formula that glides more smoothly with the skin than other fillers, lending to a much more natural appearance. These fillers are ideal to use in areas of high mobility, especially in the nasolabial folds (laugh lines), where some injectables create rigid effects. How do you know which Restylane® filler to use? Refyne® is ideal for patients desiring more contoured features, whereas Defyne® helps to increase volume and lift. If you are unsure which filler you would benefit from most, see board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Greene, to determine your filler fit!
