Restylane Defyne is a hyaluronic acid gel injected into the face to smooth over laugh lines, fill out hollow temples, define the cheeks and jaw, and address chin retrusion. As we age, our skin loses its volume and elasticity. Collagen production also slows down, leaving the skin thinner and less elastic. Restylane Defyne helps to dramatically improve signs of aging and temporarily counteracts deep lines and wrinkles.

Restylane Defyne also improves chin retrusion — when the chin recedes towards the neck, giving the face an unproportionate look. Correcting chin retrusion with Restylane Defyne results in a more balanced look to the face and neck and provides a more flattering side profile. Restylane Defyne has many life-changing capabilities and will give beautiful, natural-looking results.

What is Restylane Defyne?

Restylane Defyne is a widely effective hyaluronic acid dermal filler. It corrects the appearance of deepened laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines) and chin retrusion. Hyaluronic acid is a natural sugar found in the body and is vital to sustaining a healthy, youthful complexion. Restylane Defyne uses XpresHAn Technology™ gel providing smoothness to wrinkles and lines while maintaining natural facial expressions and movement.

How the Procedure Works

Restylane Defyne is a hyaluronic acid-based gel injected into the chin to correct the face profile or wrinkles around the nose and mouth to smooth them. While Restylane Defyne is a non-surgical procedure, it still requires before and after preparation and aftercare and recovery time. As a patient, it is also essential to be aware of what you can expect during the procedure.

Before & Preparation

Before the procedure, you will attend a consultation to discuss:

  • Medical History
  • Contraindications
  • Desired Results
  • Possible Side Effects

During the Procedure

Here is what the patient can expect throughout the Restylane Defyne procedure:

Cleanse the skin to be sure the treatment area is clean and ready for injections;

Numb the treatment area with a topical anesthetic.

Injections begin and will continue until desired results are achieved.

After injections are complete, a light massage of the treatment area may take place to be sure the dermal filler is appropriately distributed and looks as natural as possible.

Aftercare & Recovery

The bullet points below are critical to ensure a healthy recovery process.

Minimize strenuous activity.

Minimize exposure to heat and the sun, as they can cause inflammation and irritation to the treatment area.

Use a dampened cold compress on the treatment area to help reduce any swelling that may occur.

Refrain from washing the treatment area for at least six hours, which is typically when the numbing agent will wear off.

Avoid taking aspirin, blood thinners, or NSAID medications, as these can increase the risk of bruising or bleeding at the injection site (any tenderness or swelling should subside within 1-2 weeks).

Treatment Areas

Restylane Defyne can be used in multiple areas on the lower portion of the face. These areas include:

  • Laugh Lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines)
