One of the challenges I’ve faced as an injector has been the stiffness that products can create when treating nasolabial folds/smile lines. In fact, the nasolabial fold has been the very last place I will inject product because of the tendency for this treatment to blunt our smiles. I have always been conservative in these areas because it is so important for me to maintain a natural look for my patients as well as for myself.
Finally, injectable treatments that allow for natural expression!
But now, there are two perfect products to solve this dilemma: Restylane Defyne and Restylane Refyne. I’m happy to announce that I am the first to offer these products in our area, and I am thrilled to bring them into my practice.
Restylane Defyne allows for treatment of deep moderately severe smile lines. Restylane Refyne allows for treatment of finer, more superficial smile lines. Both provide the flexibility and stretchability to allow for natural expression. Restylane’s new XpresHAn technology provides a stretchability, which moves and animates with you; whether you’re smiling, laughing, or kissing. This is a huge breakthrough.
I have used these products for two weeks now, and I am thrilled with the results. I no longer have to be as conservative with smile lines as I have been in the past. These two new products have filled the gap for me in my practice. I feel confident that I can now address every form of volume loss while continuing my passion to leave my patients looking natural.
