Earlier this year, in 2017, the FDA approved the use of Restylane Defyne in the United States. Dr. Yune has recently acquired Restylane Defyne and incorporated the filler into his collection of injectables at the Aesthetic Specialty Centre.
As an innovator in his field, Dr. Yune is excited to bring the next generation of cosmetic injectables into his practice and provide his patients with rejuvenated results that look completely natural.
Redefyning Graceful Aging
Restylane Defyne is formulated to produce a youthful appearance by reducing nasolabial folds and marionette lines that have resonated deep within the skin. The injectable actively works to increase volume to folds of skin that are progressing the natural aging process.
As with several dermal fillers currently on the market, Defyne is made up of hyaluronic acid — a naturally occurring protein responsible for maintaining moisture in the skin. Defyne, however, is formulated using cross-linking technology, which produces a specific version of HA, known as XpresHAn.
Because HA is already present within your body, it will help your skin retain moisture, but with natural aging as well as sun exposure, harmful lifestyle habits and poor sleeping positions, the skin gradually begins to lose its elasticity and create facial folds.
When injected into the mid to deep facial tissue, not only will XpresHAn fill in wrinkles and plump the skin, but also the protein will work with the contours of your face to ensure natural movement. Rather than limit your ability to make facial expressions, Defyne allows you to laugh, grimace, smile and frown all while helping you appear youthful.
The use of HA fillers works to increase volume within wrinkles and smooth loose skin, and with the recent development of XpresHAn technology, you can look younger without compromising the flexibility of your skin.
Is Defyne Right for You?
Injectable treatment is appealing for many patients due to its minimally invasive nature, but its use is dependent upon the aging features you exhibit. During a consultation, Dr. Yune can examine your skin and determine whether the lines present are deep enough for treatment with Defyne.
Typically, Defyne is effective on facial lines that run from the nose to the mouth and from the mouth to the chin, commonly known as nasolabial folds and marionette lines. As these facial creases become more pronounced, they require treatment that adequately restores their volume to be in line with the consistency of your skin. Defyne works specifically on deepened lines to reduce their appearance with subtle enhancement.
Most patients begin to see the results of Defyne after two weeks, but full results will not be present for at least one month. Like all injections, Defyne will require re-treatment to maintain results; although the injection is said to last up to 12 months, injections twice per year will typically produce smooth features continuously. Dr. Yune can determine the number of injections needed to produce optimal results in your skin.
