Reveal natural-looking and long-lasting results that smooth and soften moderate laugh lines with Restylane® Refyne. This hyaluronic acid dermal filler is designed to help support your skin and restore your youthful look while increasing skin flexibility and maintaining facial expressions.
What is Restylane® Refyne?
Restylane® Refyne is a dermal filler injected under the skin to help smooth away the wrinkles and folds that form at the sides of the nose and run down toward the corners of the mouth.
Restylane® Refyne contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar in the body that gives the skin moisture, volume, and elasticity. The filler also has a small amount of lidocaine, a local anesthetic commonly used to numb the skin.
Restylane® Refyne is made using a manufacturing process called XpresHAn Technology™, which helps create the smooth texture of the injectable gel to give skin a natural, soft look.
Benefits of Restylane® Refyne
Restylane® Refyne temporarily minimizes the signs of aging on the face by smoothing the wrinkles and folds that appear around the nose and extend down to the corners of the mouth, also called the laugh lines. The results of treatment should appear natural and smooth, lasting up to 12 months.
Before the Treatment Session
Before scheduling treatment with Restylane® Refyne, patients should speak to their doctor about their medical history to determine if they are an appropriate candidate for treatment. The doctor will ask questions about possible allergies to ensure Restylane® Refyne is an appropriate option for the patient. Patients should tell their doctor about all of their medical conditions, including if they:
- Have severe allergies with a history of severe reactions (anaphylaxis)
- Are allergic to the anesthetic lidocaine or the proteins used to make the hyaluronic acid in Restylane® Refyne
- Are pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning to become pregnant
- Have a history of scarring
- Intend to undergo laser treatment or chemical peels in the near future
What to Expect
The doctor will begin by cleansing the treatment area and applying a topical anesthetic to numb the injection site. After making the first injection, the doctor will pause to allow the anesthetic in Restylane® Refyne to further numb the treatment area and minimize discomfort during the injections.
Additional injections will be made once the treatment area shows the desired results. Finally, the doctor will gently massage the treatment area to ensure even distribution and natural appearance.
Potential Risks and Side Effects
After the procedure, patients may experience the following temporary side effects:
- Lumps/bumps formation
These side effects should resolve within one to two weeks. Other rare and serious side effects may include infection, scarring, skin discoloration, cold sores, and vision changes.
For 24 hours after treatment, avoid or minimize strenuous exercise and exposure to sun or heat. Exposure to any of these may increase redness, swelling, and/or itching at the injection site. Patients may apply an ice pack to alleviate these side effects.
