As we age, our faces begin to show the effects of gravity, sun exposure and years of facial muscle movement, such as smiling, chewing and squinting. The underlying tissues that keep our skin looking youthful and plumped up begin to break down, often leaving laugh lines, smile lines, crow’s feet or facial creases over the areas where this muscle movement occurs.
Soft-tissue fillers like Restylane Refyne can help fill in these lines and creases, temporarily restoring a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance. Restylane Refyne is a gel formulation of hyaluronic acid specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid. When injected beneath the skin, Restylane Refyne will plump up creased and sunken areas of the face such as the nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
How fast will I see results?
Results are immediate, although it may take a few days to achieve full results. You will see a difference as soon as you leave the office, and over the course of the next week you will notice further improvements.
Is a Restylane Refyne treatment painful?
Restylane Refyne contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic. Due to this addition, pain and discomfort are minimal.
What are the side effects of Restylane products?
After your treatment, you may experience side effects, such as swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, tenderness, lump formation, itching at the injection site and impaired hand function. These are typically mild in severity and normally last less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14-18 days in lips. Swelling may be more likely in patients under 36 years, and bruising may be more likely in patients over 35 years.
