Restylane® Defyne

in Baltimore, MD

The skilled physicians at the Aesthetic Center at Woodholme offer a variety of dermal filler options such as Defyne to patients in Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Annapolis and the surrounding areas of Maryland.

What is Restylane® Defyne?

Restylane® Defyne is a gel-like hyaluronic acid filler designed to plump deep wrinkles around the mouth, nose, and cheeks. It is designed to help firm and tighten the skin while allowing for normal movement so that you appear as natural as possible. Defyne is similar to the Refyne, but can treat even deeper wrinkles and folds in the face. Defyne allows patients to look younger and refreshed without surgery and downtime.

Benefits of Restylane® Defyne

Those who choose Defyne for their facial rejuvenation treatment can enjoy these benefits:

  •         Improved nasolabial folds around the nose and mouth
  •         Smoothed chin lines (marionette lines)
  •         XpresHAn technology to fill in deeper facial lines and folds
  •         Support for the natural facial expressions (no frozen look)
  •         A subtle lip enhancement

Who is a Good Candidate for Defyne?

If you want to erase signs of aging, yet are not looking for the type of drastic change that results from a facelift or other surgical procedure, Defyne might be a great option. Defyne has an added advantage in that it can also be injected into the lips. Candidates might choose Defyne over Refyne for deeper, more severe wrinkles and folds in the lower face.

How is Restylane® Defyne Treatment Performed?

We take a precise amount of product and inject it into one or more areas of your face to plump wrinkles and smooth the skin. Only a very fine needle is required, so you should remain completely comfortable throughout. The product does contain a small amount of the numbing agent lidocaine as well. This means the area will become numb as Defyne is injected. For further enhanced comfort, patients can choose to have a strong topical numbing agent applied before the injections. The injection process only takes about 10-20 minutes to complete.

Results of Defyne

There is no required downtime after treatment with Defyne. You can expect some mild swelling, bruising, and redness at the injection sites, but this should diminish within a few hours to days. You can expect instant results from Defyne, with added volume for smoother, more youthful-looking skin. The results of Defyne can last for up to one year before a touch-up session is needed.
