Background of Fillers

There were 2.4 million filler treatments performed in 2015 which is up 6% from 2014 and 274% since 2000.  The reason that fillers are popular is because they are less expensive and more accessible than surgery.  Fillers are not permanent so patients are less anxious than they would be with something surgical.   At Dermacare, patients have access to the best injectors and products on the market.

One area that’s especially difficult to treat are laugh lines.  As skin loses elasticity with age, the lines that run from the sides of your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corner of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines) appear more noticeable.

 

What is Defyne?

Restylane Defyne is a filler intended to correct deeper wrinkles and folds in the laugh lines. As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form.

The same company that makes Defyne also makes Restylane, Sculptra, and Dysport, has just announced FDA approval of Restylane Defyne to plump and fill deep-set laugh lines.

Although there are other fillers on the market that can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, Defyne is meant to give a more natural-looking look.  In fact, they are the only fillers on the market that have been shown in clinical trials to help maintain natural movement and expressions.
Caren, an injection specialist at Dermacare says, “I’ve been monitoring the results that [Defyne] has been getting in other countries and couldn’t wait for it to make it to the US.  It’s finally here and I couldn’t be more excited.  Defyne gives some of the most natural results you can get from a filler.  They help smooth away hard to treat laugh lines which are the wrinkles and folds at the sides of your nose and run down toward the corners of your mouth.”
The FDA trials showed an improvement in wrinkle severity for up to twelve months in most patients.  Investigators reported that 79% of Defyne users had an improvement in their wrinkles after six weeks.

 

What’s the difference between Defyne and Refyne?

Defyne is crafted with XpresHAn Technology™ to correct deepened lines. The unique cross-linking of the gel in Defyne is also designed to help support your facial expressions for natural-looking results that help maintain your natural movement.

Restylane Refyne is a specifically formulated hyaluronic acid dermal filler made with XpresHAn Technology™ that helps correct these lines for a more natural look to your face.  The unique cross-linking of the gel in Restylane Refyne is also designed to help support your natural expression—for real-life results that help maintain natural movement when you’re smiling, frowning and puckering up.

What is XpresHAn Technology?

XpresHAn Technology creates a smooth, injectable gel that can give your skin natural-looking results. It customizes the degree of HA crosslinking in each product, resulting in gels with a range of flexibility and support characteristics for different patient needs.  This makes Refyne is very flexible and provide subtle support, while Defyne is designed to be less flexible and provide additional support.
