How is the Restylane Defyne Procedure Performed at MD Aesthetica?
Before administering any injectable filler treatment, your Aesthetic Injection Specialist will perform a consultation where we will go over your aging concerns, expectations, goals,and medical history. After determining that you are a good candidate for treatment, we will schedule your Restylane Defyne procedure which in most cases can be right after the consultation. Topical numbing or ice may be used, but isn’t necessary as the injectable filler contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic. Your Aesthetic Injection Specialist will perform a series of injections using a fine-gauge needle into the treatment area. They will then mold and shape the filler for best results. After treatment, an ice pack can be applied to help with swelling.
How Long Does a Restylane Defyne Treatment Take at MD Aesthetica?
Once injections begin, your Defyne treatment can take anywhere from 15-30 minutes. This does not include your initial consultation.
Do Restylane Defyne Injections Hurt? Will Anesthesia Be Used?
Lidocaine, an injectable local anesthetic, is integrated into each syringe of Defyne. This helps ensure patient comfort during the procedure. Most patients report only a slight pinching or poking sensation and rate the procedure as very comfortable. If you are concerned about discomfort during treatment, you may opt to receive a topical numbing cream and/or ice.
How Does Restylane Defyne Work?
Restylane Defyne is a special injectable hyaluronic acid gel that provides smooth results in the nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Galderma’s XpresHAn technology customizes the hyaluronic acid particles to cross-link with each other, providing a degree of flexibility and smoothness not found in many other fillers. We think Restylane Defyne is one of the best fillers on the market in Houston for nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
How Long Do the Results of a Restylane Defyne Treatment Last?
No two patients are alike, and everyone metabolizes injectables differently, however, during clinical trials, the results of Restylane Defyne lasted up to 12 months in over 65% of patients. Over 70% of patients continued to see results after 6 months.
Am I a Candidate for Restylane Defyne?
Restylane Defyne is FDA-approved for anyone 21 and over who have mild-to-moderate wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth. If you have nasolabial folds and marionette lines that bother you, and you’re in relatively good health, then you are likely a candidate for treatment.
What Side-Effects Can I Expect Following a Restylane Defyne Treatment?
Common side-effects related to Defyne treatments are mild and include swelling, bruising, and light bleeding. These side-effects can be controlled by following our guidance before and after treatment. These guidelines include avoiding blood thinning medications and alcoholic beverages before and after treatment. We also recommend avoiding excess sun exposure and heat after treatment in addition to taking a break from exercise for 24 hours after treatment. Cold packs can be used to help alleviate swelling.
How Much Does Restylane Defyne Cost? Is it Affordable?
As every patient’s needs are different, the costs associated with a Restylane Defyne treatment will vary from person to person.
