As we get older, the breakdown of collagen and facial fat can lead to the appearance of deep wrinkles and folds. These folds can be especially prominent around the nose, mouth, and chin, as the lower part of the face is prone to wrinkle-producing movements and expressions.
People who have moderate to severe wrinkles and deep facial folds can experience temporary relief with Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne. Both dermal fillers are approved by the FDA for filling in deep facial folds and wrinkles.
Both Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne are now available at the Boston plastic surgery practices of board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Doherty.
Candidates for Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne
Ideal candidates for these dermal filler injections are people who have deep wrinkles, lines, and folds – particular around the nose and mouth. Individuals with moderate to severe wrinkles and folds do best with Restylane Refyne, while people with moderate to severe deep wrinkles and folds see better results with Restylane Defyne.
The procedure for each dermal filler injection is straightforward, and takes less than 30 minutes to administer. Dr. Doherty can treat the injection site with numbing cream, as this can help numb any discomfort. Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne both contain lidocaine, a numbing agent that makes the injection experience a lot more comfortable.
Patients should expect mild swelling, bruising, and pain at the injection sites. Most people see results in about two weeks. Results for both Restylane injections can last up to 12 months.
