When it comes to getting a totally natural look with fillers, one size does NOT fit all—and the popular filler manufacturer Restylane understands this. The most recent additions to the Restylane® family, Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne, are great options to smooth moderate to deep facial lines and folds, and we’re proud to offer them both at LJCSC.

How are Refyne and Defyne different from regular Restylane?

All Restylane fillers are gels made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the skin that can hold many times its weight in water and works fabulously to help restore facial volume and smooth lines and wrinkles.

Refyne and Defyne are made with the latest technology, XpresHAn™, which blends the HA particles in a way that lets the filler move more naturally with your facial expressions. While your injectable provider’s skill matters most in achieving an effective, natural looking result, Refyne and Defyne are designed to help avoid the stiff or unnatural feeling that can sometimes occur with deeper filler injections in parts of the face that move frequently and dynamically.

Restylane Refyne vs. Defyne

Refyne and Defyne are very similar products, with slightly different consistencies. Defyne is slightly thicker and therefore can be injected a little more deeply to treat more severe folds (it may help to think the “D” in Defyne stands for “deep”).

What can Restylane Refyne treat?

  • Smile lines
  • Parentheses
  • Marionette lines
  • Moderate nasolabial folds

What can Restylane Defyne treat?

  • Deep laugh lines
  • Severe nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
