Restylane® Refyne™ and Defyne™
Fillers for Maintaining Natural Expressions
One of the more common concerns we hear from our NYC patients when it comes to injectables and fillers is whether their facial expressions will still appear natural after treatment. Treating laugh lines doesn’t mean having to give up a natural appearance. With Restylane® Refyne™ and Defyne™ fillers and the team at New Look New Life Cosmetic Surgical Arts, you can smooth away signs of aging while better maintaining your face’s natural expressions.
What is different about Restylane® Refyne™ and Defyne™?
Like traditional Restylane®, Refyne™ and Defyne™ are hyaluronic acid (HA) based dermal fillers. Using this naturally occurring chemical, Refyne™ and Defyne™ work by restoring lost volume beneath the skin’s surface—helping to smooth the appearance of facial folds, lines, and wrinkles.
Refyne™ and Defyne™ are also crafted with Restylane®’s XpresHAn Technology™, which not only helps to smooth the appearance of laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines), but also works to maintain your face’s natural expressions. You’ll look years younger, but you’ll still have the same beautiful smile that makes you, you.
Why choose Restylane Refyne or Defyne?
Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini and Dr. Claudia Kim recommend these dermal fillers to men and women who are wanting to treat signs of aging, but are concerned about losing the ability to make natural expressions. After your treatment, you’ll still be able to smile, frown, or even pucker your lips the way you used to. Refyne™ and Defyne™ are both great at improving the appearance of laugh lines, but Defyne™ may be recommended for deeper or more visible lines.
Like all other injectables and fillers, Refyne™ and Defyne™ can be combined with other treatments to achieve optimal results and address additional concerns. Our team at New Look New Life Surgical Arts can help make recommendations as to which treatments may be best for your specific case.
Is there any recovery associated with Restylane® Refyne™ and Defyne™?
At New Look New Life, we understand the busy New York lifestyle many of our patients lead. This filler treatment provides immediate benefits with little to no downtime. Most patients are able to return to their normal routines as soon as they leave either our Manhattan or Westchester office locations.
How long will the results last from a Restylane® Refyne™ or Defyne™ treatment?
Most patients continue to experience the benefits of their Restylane® Refyne™ for up to six to nine months. Defyne™ has been shown in clinical trials to provide results for up to a full year. Once you notice the laugh lines begin to make their way back when you stare in the mirror, you can schedule a touch-up treatment at one of our New York offices to maintain your youthful appearance.
When overdone or performed incorrectly, some of these treatments can cause the face to appear almost frozen. This is why it is always important to consult a certified physician when considering any cosmetic treatment. Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini and Dr. Claudia Kim have the necessary training and experience to perform Restylane® Refyne™ and Defyne™ filler treatments both safe and effectively. Our goal at New Look New Life is to provide each man and woman who walks into our office with beautiful results that are specifically tailored to his or her unique goals—taking the time to personalize each injectable or filler treatment to ensure extremely natural-looking outcomes.
