Improve Smile Lines with Restylane Defyne
Facial expressions communicate our emotions and give us personality. But as we get older, our skin loses its elasticity and its ability to bounce back as easily as it once did. As a result, expression lines can become etched into the skin–particularly around the mouth and nose. Up until recently, few cosmetic treatments have been available to both reduce the deep creases and preserve normal facial motion. Today, however, there are some highly effective skin renewal treatments that can yield natural-looking results.
The doctors and aesthetic technicians at Advanced Dermatology, P.C. are dedicated to offering patients the most advanced rejuvenation techniques and products available today. Recognized throughout New York City, Westchester County, and New Jersey, our doctors specialize in minimally-invasive injectable treatments. We perform a range of treatments that can help soften deep creases around the mouth. If you would like to make your smile lines less pronounced, Restylane Defyne treatments can produce visible results.
What is Restylane Defyne?
Restylane Defyne is a temporary dermal filler that can help reduce the signs of aging. The active ingredient, hyaluronic acid, is a water-binding sugar that the body naturally manufactures. Hyaluronic acid’s ability to bind to water produces an overall hydrating effect in the skin: it plumps the skin and helps give it structure. As we age, the body slows its production of this valuable substance. When reintroduced into the skin, hyaluronic acid replenishes the skin and adds volume to sunken areas.
As part of the Restylane line of products, Restylane Defyne has been designed to be used on deep creases around the mouth. Its special gel formula smoothes deep lines, but does not restrict your ability to smile.
Smile lines are a common sign of aging skin. Restylane Defyne can help correct moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles on the face, specifically:
- Nasolabial folds (prominent lines that go from the corners of the mouth to the nose)
- Marionette lines (deep creases that go from the corners of the mouth to the chin)
What to Expect
Restylane Defyne injections are fast and painless. During a treatment, your doctor will inject the smooth gel directly into the lines and creases. Once injected, the gel will fill out the wrinkles and instantly volumize the skin. No downtime is needed after a treatment, typically patients can immediately resume their normal activities. Patients may report some minor temporary irritation around the injection site, such as mild swelling and redness. These side effects are normal and usually subside within a day or so.
Typically, one treatment is sufficient to achieve the desired improvement. However, some patients may benefit from an additional treatment to enhance the outcome. Most patients can expect to enjoy visible effects for up to 12 months, but individual results may vary.
