As the body ages, it loses its capacity to produce the vital substances that help keep the skin resilient and supple. Once the production of collagen and hydrating substances slows, the skin’s structural and rejuvenating reserves gradually become depleted. As a result, creases, wrinkles, and expression lines start to permanently settle in place. Fortunately, there are safe and effective non-surgical cosmetic procedures that can help smooth out these age-related imperfections and give the skin a boost.
At Advanced Dermatology, our doctors are committed to bringing the most advanced minimally-invasive treatments to our patients in New York and New Jersey. We offer a range of injectable treatments that can address specific concerns, such as laugh lines. Our targeted approach ensures that we consistently deliver impressive, yet natural-looking results. For individuals who would like to improve the appearance of deep creases around the mouth, we recommend Restylane Refyne.
What is Restylane Refyne?
Restylane Refyne is part of the Restylane family of products, a line of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers that can help combat signs of aging. Hyaluronic acid is a hydrating substance that the body naturally produces. Its lubricating properties help cushion the joints and keep the skin plump. When injected into the skin, hyaluronic acid has an instant hydrating and volumizing effect.
Restylane Refyne has been specially designed to treat wrinkles around the mouth. Its unique formula reduces smile lines, yet does not inhibit your natural facial movements. As a result, patients are able to maintain normal expressions.
Restylane Refyne can help smooth out moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles on the face, specifically:
- Nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corners of the mouth to the nose)
- Marionette lines (the lines that extend from the corners of the mouth to the chin)
Restylane Refyne is a straightforward and fast procedure. During a treatment, a small amount of the gel filler is injected into the skin with a fine needle. The filler will have an immediate effect, instantly reducing lines and creases. After the treatment, patients may experience some minor swelling and redness around the injection site. But these side effects are temporary and will typically resolve themselves within a day or two.
Most patients benefit from a single treatment, although some individuals choose to have a second treatment to optimize results. Restylane Refyne is temporary, but can have long-lasting results. In a clinical study, most patients reported improvement for up to 12 months following treatment.
