Restylane® Refyne™ Filler Injections, A Non-Surgical Injection that is Used for Moderate Facial Wrinkles and Nasolabial (smile line) Folds in the Las Vegas Area
What is Restylane® Refyne™?
Restylane® Refyne™ is a hyaluronic acid filler from the Restylane® family of products. FDA-approved in December 2016 and released in 2017, it is FDA-approved for the correction of deeper wrinkles of the face such as nasolabial folds.
What makes Restylane® Refyne™ different from other hyaluronic acid fillers?
Restylane® Refyne™ is a smooth gel that provides good improvement of mild to moderate facial wrinkles. It is similar to Restylane® Defyne™, but is a “lighter” product used for filling shallower facial wrinkles than Defyne™. Because of how the hyaluronic acid strands within Restylane® Refyne™ are bonded together, the gel is smooth and integrates well into the area of injection. Also due to its filler structure, Restylane® Refyne™ may provide a longer duration and allow less swelling than some previous fillers used for wrinkle reduction.
Where can Restylane® Refyne™ be used?
Restylane® Refyne™ is a “midweight” filler, so Dr. Aspacio uses it to provide soft filling in areas that need subtle enhancement. Although FDA-approved for deep wrinkles of the face such as nasolabial folds, there are many uses of the filler beyond smile lines. Dr. Aspacio may also utilize Restylane® Refyne™ in areas such as the tear troughs (under eye circles), forehead, brow, cheeks, smile lines, marionette lines, or lips.
Does Restylane® Refyne™ look natural in the face?
Yes. Restylane® Refyne™ integrates into the area of placement extremely well, lending this filler to a very natural result in expert hands such as Dr. Aspacio.
Can Restylane® Refyne™ be combined with other fillers or procedures?
Yes, Restylane® Refyne™ is often used by Dr. Aspacio in conjunction with other fillers, skin tightening procedures, or light and laser based technologies to create a more enhanced outcome. Restylane® Refyne™ may be used with other fillers to balance the face and restore lost volume, a process called a “liquid face lift.”
How much downtime is there following Restylane® Refyne™ treatment?
There is typically mild to minimal swelling following Restylane® Refyne™ treatment. While individual results may vary, most patients experience minimal to mild swelling for a day or two. Most patients can resume daily social activities same day.
As with any injectable dermal filler, there is a chance for bruising.
Does Restylane® Refyne™ injection hurt?
There is typically minimal pain during Restylane® Refyne™ placement. In clinical studies it was shown to be quite comfortable during injection as numbing medication called lidocaine is mixed into the filler itself.
What is the cost of Restylane® Refyne™?
The price of Restylane® Refyne™ ranges by number of syringes used and the area of product placement. When you come in for your consultation, Dr. Aspacio will be able to tell you exactly how much you will need and what it will cost.
What are the possible side effects of Restylane® Refyne™?
The side effects of Restylane® Refyne™ are similar to any other FDA-approved injectable hyaluronic acid filler products. More common and mild side effects following Restylane® Refyne™ include pain during injection, swelling at the site of placement, or a bruise. Extremely rare reactions include allergic reaction to the filler, infection, compression of a nearby vessel causing skin changes, visual disturbances, or stroke. These are very uncommon and should prompt a patient to call the treating physician immediately.
