Here at Dr. John J. O’Brien, Jr. Plastic and Reconstructive surgery, we strive to bring our patients the newest and most effective procedures and products. That being said, we are proud to announce that we are now offering Restylane Defyne & Restylane Refyne injectables at our med spa. These two new and innovative fillers bring a whole new technology making them truly next-generation hyaluronic acid dermal fillers.
What is XpresHAn Technology?
XpresHAn technology is a manufacturing process that helps to create a smooth injectable gel that provides natural-looking results. According to Galderma the manufacturer, XpresHAn technology adapts the level of ‘HA (hyaluronic acid) crosslinking’ needed in each treatment, resulting in gels ranging consistency in order to support the needs of each patient.
What is Restylane® Defyne
Restylane Defyne is designed to be less flexible and provide a higher degree of correction. As its name suggests, Defyne is used to add definition or a higher level of support and structure for improving the appearance of moderate to severe nasolabial folds or laugh lines. Therefore, Restylane Defyne will use a higher level of crosslinking to create a firmer yet smooth gel to fill lines and wrinkles.
What is Restylane® Refyne
Restylane® Refyne is designed to be softer and provide subtle improvement for mild to moderate smile lines. This version is perfect for more shallow lines because of its softer and more flexible texture. This filler creates less structure and adapts to the amount of modification needed for less severe lines and wrinkles. In contrast to Defyne, Reyne will use a lower level of crosslinking to create a softer gel to accommodate more mild symptoms.
