Restylane Refyne & Defyne


Restylane Overview

Restylane New York City

Restylane® was the first dermal filler in the U.S., approved back in 2006. Since then, Restylane®, along with Juvederm®, have been the world’s most popular dermal fillers. Over the years, both product lines have expanded to specifically target areas such as the lips with Restylane® Silk or Juvederm® Volbella®.

The full Restylane® line now includes five fillers: Restylane®, Restylane® Silk, Restylane® Lyft, Restylane® Refyne™, and Restylane® Defyne™. Here at Laser & Mohs Dermatology of New York, we offer the full family of Restylane dermal fillers for our Manhattan area patients.


What is Restylane Refyne?

Restylane® Refyne was approved by the FDA in December 2016. This new addition to the Restylane® line (along with Defyne™, see below) is used to correct smile (marionette) lines and nasolabial folds. Refyne™ is specifically formulated to treat mild to moderate lines and wrinkles.

What is Restylane Defyne?

Approved by the FDA along with Refyne™, Defyne™ also specifically targets nasolabial folds and marionette lines. The difference is that Defyne™ is designed for use on moderate to severe creases and lines. Both Refyne™ and Defyne™ provide results that last up to one year.

Why Choose Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne?

There are definitely other options for addressing nasolabial folds and marionette lines, but Refyne™ and Defyne™ are different. XpressHAn Technology™ is a cross-linking in the gel of both Restylane® Refyne™ and Defyne™ to help support the patient’s natural expressions — for real-life results that help maintain natural movement when smiling, frowning, or otherwise moving your mouth.

What does this mean? If you’re reading this page, you know about dermal fillers. In some cases, injection into the nasolabial folds and other areas around the mouth can create an unnatural inability of the facial skin to move with certain facial expressions. Galderma says its technology now allows Refyne™ and Defyne™ to fill the creases, all the while letting your skin move naturally when you make expressions.


How Many Restylane Treatments Will I Need?

Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne are single session dermal fillers. One session takes just 15-20 minutes. Your results are immediate as these fillers instantly fill smile and marionette lines.
