Restylane® Refyne creates natural results that Refyne your laugh lines. A next-generation hyaluronic acid dermal filler designed to help support your skin while keeping you looking like you, Restylane® Refyne is designed with XpresHAn Technology™ and is FDA-approved to help with subtle lip augmentation and soften subtle laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). This can help you restore a more natural look to your face while maintaining your facial expressions, so you always look like you.
Q: What is Restylane® Refyne?
A: As skin loses elasticity with age, the lines that run from the sides of your nose toward the corners of your mouth appear more noticeable. Restylane Refyne is a specifically formulated hyaluronic acid dermal filler made with XpresHAn Technology™ that helps correct smile lines (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corner of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines) for a more natural look to your face. The unique cross-linking of the gel in Restylane Refyne is also designed to help support your natural expression—for real-life results that help maintain natural movement when you’re smiling, frowning and even puckering up, for your naturally best self.
Q:What is the difference between Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne
A: Both of these fillers last up to 12 months compared to regular Restylane which lasts approximately 6-8 months. These fillers are flexible and are ideal for the areas of the face that have a lot of movement, which we call “High Motion”. Restylane® Refyne was approved for the treatment of moderate to severe (we prefer to see this as mild to moderate) facial wrinkles and folds, and Restylane® Defyne for the treatment of moderate to severe, deep facial wrinkles and folds. Each of these gel fillers is made with a flexible hyaluronic acid filler which uses XpresHAn Technology – creating gels that offer a wide range of flexibility and support. Like memory foam – this gel moves and molds with your natural movement and then returns to its natural shape – so it is ideal for the areas of the face where there is a lot of movement.
Q: How does Restylane® Refyne compare to Restylane® Silk for the lips?
A: Restylane® Silk and Volbella are the only two products FDA-approved for lip enhancement and smoothing of wrinkles around the lips. However, Refyne has less swelling than either Restylane or Restylane Silk, and it will last longer than due to its structure. Restylane® Refyne is best when we want a little more plumping, and Silk when correcting fine lines, especially around the lips for vertical lip lines.
Q: How does Restylane® Refyne compare to JUVÉDERM® Volbella® for the lips?
A: Refyne has slightly more volume and more mobile than Volbella. Volbella is for subtle correction. Refyne will last a little longer (but both are indicated to last for up to 12 months) and it is a medium consistency (firmer) as opposed to a soft consistency like Volbella. Refyne can give you a better shape for in the lips, however it is not specifically FDA approved yet for the lips.
Q: How does Restylane® Refyne compare to Restylane Lyft?
A: While Restylane Lyft is FDA-approved to help correct the sagging face (by adding cheek volume), it is also approved to erase “smile lines”. Lyft is an incredibly versatile filler – used to treat moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds. We use it to add volume to the cheeks, erase smile lines around the mouth, fill in sunken or hollow temples, and more.
Q: How do the results with Restylane® Refyne compare with other fillers?
A: In a clinical study, subjects were evaluated based on perception of the naturalness of facial expressions in motion after 1 month of Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne optimal treatment – 97% of subjects treated were satisfied with their results and would do it again, and 95% said they would recommend it to a friend.
