As we age, our skin loses elasticity, making us more prone to wrinkles and sagging. The lines along the corners of your mouth that move down towards your chin, also known as marionette lines, begin to appear more noticeably. This natural aging process is inevitable and takes place over the course of years regardless of environmental factors, such as smoking or sun damage.
To combat wrinkles and sagging, the newest member of Restylane’s dermal filler family Refyne was deigned for the treatment of moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds. This gel is the first FDA-approved filler that’s specially designed to treat laugh lines that form along the folds of the nose and mouth. After injecting with a fine needle, Dr. Rokhsar will fill in the deep-set lines with this flexible and supportive filler—leading behind soft and natural-looking results.
A common concern for patients was improving the appearance of their deep-set wrinkles and fine lines with subtle and natural results. This hyaluronic acid filler acts like a cushion to support facial structures and tissues that lose volume or elasticity overtime. It also brings water to the surface of the skin, which leaves the face looking fresh and youthful. Because hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in the human body, with high concentrations found in the soft connective tissues, it is compatible with the body.
The reason why Restylane’s new Refyne has become a reliable long-lasting filler that keeps the skin looking smooth is because of its new hyaluronic technology called XpresHAn. This new gel formula stays flexible within the skin, so whether you’re smiling, frowning, or wrinkling your face, the results will maintain a soft and natural appearance.
In a clinical trial, those who were treated with Refyne reported experiencing natural facial expressions after 1 month. Results can last up to 12 months after injection, making it one of the longest lasting hyaluronic acid filler injectables on the market today.
