WHAT MAKES RESTYLANE DEFYNE AND RESTYLANE REFYNE DIFFERENT?
These two new products from Galderma have been called “next-generation” hyaluronic acid fillers. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance that occurs naturally in the body, binds to water, and retains moisture in the skin. It fills in the spaces between fibers of collagen and elastin and plumps up the skin for a more youthful look.
Unlike other Hyaluronic acid fillers, Restylane Defyne and Restylane Refyne incorporate new “XpresHAn” technology, which allows for movement of the fillers within the face with any facial expression, resulting in a more natural appearance.
Whether you are laughing, smiling, frowning, or making any expression that causes the face to wrinkle, these HA (Hyaluronic acid) gels can flex within your skin for a look that is soft, natural, and never stiff.
This unique characteristic makes Restylane Defyne and Restylane Refyne particularly suitable for the treatment of laugh lines. These products are both designed and FDA approved for mid to deep injection into the facial tissue to correct facial wrinkles and folds. Although they are being newly introduced in the U.S., they have been approved and used in Europe since 2010 under the name “Emervel.”
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RESTYLANE DEFYNE AND RESTYLANE REFYNE?
Both new Restylane fillers – Defyne and Refyne – are hyaluronic acid products using XpresHAn technology that allows them to flex within the skin along with your facial expressions for a soft, natural result.
As stated by the manufacturer, Galderma, Restylane Refyne is for the treatment of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds in the face, such as nasolabial folds – the lines that run vertically from the nostrils to the corners of the mouth.
Restylane Defyne is designed to treat moderate to severe deep facial folds and wrinkles, including nasolabial folds. Which product is appropriate for treatment will depend on the depth of the lines and wrinkles to be treated. Depending on the patient, a combination of both fillers may be appropriate for use in just one treatment session.
