Restylane® injectable filler is a hyaluronic acid gel that is frequently used by Dr. Eugenie Brunner to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane® was approved for use in December 2003. Because Restylane® is composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that is present in our skin, it is considered to be very safe and effective as an injectable filler. It fills wrinkles or lips by attracting water to the site and allowing for soft, supple correction that looks and feels completely natural. Most patients appreciate its long-lasting effects, with many experiencing results from 8 months to a year or more from a single treatment.
Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne
As part of the Restylane® family of products, Restylane® Refyne and Defyne are designed to provide noticeable and natural-looking facial rejuvenation without the need for surgery. Made from a specially-formulated type of hyaluronic acid called XpresHAn® technology, these two innovative products can soften wrinkles around the nose and mouth, particularly smile lines (nasolabial folds) and marionette lines (at the corner of the mouth). Additionally, Refyne is occasionally used to augment the lips. The difference between the two FDA-approved fillers is the power of correction. Refyne gel is primarily intended to address mild to moderate signs of aging, while Defyne works to smooth and plump deeper creases. Both Restylane® Refyne and Defyne are for patients 21 years of age or older, and the outcome typically lasts about one year, although your experience may vary. Some minor bruising, swelling, and redness is common, though these effects usually subside quickly. We also offer OcuMend® to help minimize side effects.
OcuMend® Bruise-Reducing Gel Patch
To aid in the recovery process and reduce the possibility of short-term bruising, we offer OcuMend®, an innovative gel pad that uses nanotechnology to deliver restorative supplements into the treated area.
