Restylane: A Specialty Product

Restylane RefyneWomen and men of a certain age begin to see changes related to aging on the lower face. As we age, our skin loses its elasticity.  It becomes deflated and droopy.  The lower face is particularly vulnerable.  The company that developed Restylane now offers Restylane Refyne and Defyne to target issues on the lower face. At LaserMed in Alpharetta, GA, Jean Chapman, M.D., is an experienced doctor who specializes in anti-aging treatments and procedures.

Target Areas

We call the lines between the nose and the mouth “laugh lines.” Skin doctors call them nasolabial folds.  Most people agree that there’s nothing funny about them. Marionette lines are also disturbing.  They are the lines that go from the mouth to the chin.  No one wants to look like a puppet with hinged jaws. Restylane softens these lines to give you a more youthful look that is natural.

Restylane Solutions

Refyne and Defyne are both next generation HA fillers that are made using XpresHAn Technology.  XpresHAn Technology is a process that gives the fillers a smooth consistency, and produces results that look entirely natural. The fillers can be tailored to satisfy the specific needs of each patient.

  • Restylane Refyne: Refyne is a subtle formulation of HA that is ideal for mild to moderate folds.
  • Restylane Defyne: An HA filler that is specially formulated to smooth moderate to severe deep expression lines, known as nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Nasolabial folds (smile lines) run down from either side of the nose to the corner of the mouth, while marionette lines are the creases that can be seen alongside the mouth and often run down to the chin.
  • Restylane Lyft: Treats volume loss in the midface, and also reduces smile lines.  Lyft is a firm formulation which makes it ideal for adding volume to the cheek contours, and filling in the temples. It can also be used to smooth nasolabial folds.

Natural Results

Restylane is designed to help support your natural expression. You still have the freedom to smile and frown.  You can kiss passionately or just give someone a peck on the cheek.  The choice is yours.  Your mouth is NOT frozen in place.  The cross-linking gel in Restylane is the secret.  The product was created with XpresHAn Technology.  The results look and feel natural.

Restylane Defyne and Restylane Refyne are the only fillers on the market that have been shown in a clinical study to help maintain movement and expressions.
