Restylane Defyne Treatment Q and A
Restylane Defyne Treatment Q and A

Is Restylane Defyne good for lips?

Restylane® Defyne treatment is an excellent injection for lip augmentation or to correct wrinkles and folds. Not only is Restylane® Defyne approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for lip augmentation and the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds in the perioral area, but extensive research has also shown that Restylane Defyne consistently provides a concrete improvement on folds and wrinkles in and around the lips! As such, Restylane® Defyne is both safe and effective for the treatment of lip injections in patients who are 21 years of age or older.

What is the difference between Restylane Refyne and Defyne?

The primary difference between Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne is that the former is indicated for use on mild to moderate facial wrinkles and folds. In contrast, Restylane® Defyne is indicated for use on medium to severe facial wrinkles and folds. As such, Restylane® Refyne contains a more subtle formulation of hyaluronic acid (HA) than Restylane® Defyne in order to produce milder results.

Both of these Restylane® products use XpresHAn Technology, which is a unique blend of hyaluronic acid that provides more cohesiveness than other HA dermal fillers through advanced crosslinking agents. This technology gives your skin a more youthful appearance without impacting your ability to control your natural facial expressions, which provides a much more natural result.

How long does Defyne last?

The results from Restylane® Defyne injections can last anywhere from six months to over a year, depending on the treatment area, the client’s lifestyle, as well as the speed of their metabolism. For example, when Restylane® Defyne treatment is used for lip augmentation, the effects do not generally last as long compared to when they are used to treat facial folds and wrinkles. Thus while treatment for the latter can last for a year or longer, Restylane® Defyne treatment for lip augmentation tends to last for six months to one year.

Moreover, individuals with a fast metabolism who frequently exercise typically experience shorter lasting results with dermal fillers in general, while those with a slower metabolism who infrequently exercise typically experience longer-lasting results. However, we do not want to discourage you from exercising, as a regular exercise routine can also provide significant benefits for your skin’s health, as long as you are taking care of your skin post-exercise! Such benefits include improved blood circulation, which helps deliver oxygen and nutrients to your skin more efficiently, as well as increased collagen production and generation of new skin cells.
