Dermal filler technology has evolved a great deal over the last twenty years. Today’s fillers last much longer, feel more natural and offer a higher degree of specialization. Defyne® is the newest addition to the Restylane® family of hyaluronic acid fillers that embodies all three of these innovations. It’s composed of long-lasting cross-linked technology called XpresHAn™ that enables the hyaluronic acid molecules to be more flexible and agile, making it one of the most versatile and best-performing dermal fillers on the market. Defyne® therefore allows patients to look more youthful while retaining their natural expression. Once injected it can last up to 12-18 months* (versus 6 months for previous generation fillers) and is specifically designed to fill out moderate to severe wrinkles. Other products in the range are Restylane®, Refyne®, Silk® and Lyft® (previously called Perlane®).

Over time our skin loses collagen and elasticity, causing lines and folds to look more pronounced. This type of deflation develops when the skin’s support network starts to deteriorate and our lower face sags and loses volume. Defyne® reverses the appearance of lines and folds by increasing supportive tissues and structures. The unique cross-linked gel which makes up Defyne® mimics our own youthful fullness while maintaining natural-looking results. This filler is ideal for treating the lines that run from the sides of the nose toward the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds) and from the corners of the mouth toward the chin (marionette lines). Defyne® can also be used to enhance the lips and rejuvenate the hands. Restylane’s XpresHAn™ technology allows for a high level of customization within its product line. The degree of HA cross-linking determines the firmness, flexibility and therefore the functionality of each type of filler. For instance, Refyne® is very flexible and provides subtle support while Defyne® has less flexibility but offers superior support when necessary.
Results are instant with most dermal fillers. Patients can expect instant plumping and smoothing of skin, fuller lips, improvement in volume loss and deep wrinkles. As with all fillers, there can be some red marks, soreness and swelling immediately after the procedure which can last several days as the hyaluronic acid naturally attracts water. It’s also possible to bruise with dermal filler, especially in the lip area, so it’s best to have the treatment done at least 2-3 weeks in advance of any special occasions. For increased patient comfort, a topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area prior to injection. Additionally, Defyne® contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic that numbs the soft tissue being treated to minimize pain and discomfort. The cost of your Defyne® treatment will depend on where you’re located and the amount of fillers that will be required to achieve the desired results. We encourage you to book a personalized consultation to determine whether Defyne® or another type of filler is right for you. During your meeting you can learn more about the cost plus any special offers and financing options.
