Redefyning What “Natural” Means with Newly Approved Next Generation Fillers

Share This Post

2017 welcomes two new sugar-molecule Hyaluronic Acid based fillers to the market:  Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne.

The Restylane family of fillers have been on the market with proven safety and reliability for over 20 years.  With more and more fillers available to choose from, the dermatologist’s ability to treat patients in a more customized fashion gets better and better.  As usual, because Dr. Chiu is a trainer and renowned expert in injectable fillers—she is among the first doctors in the country to be able to introduce these next generation flexible movement fillers to her patients at The Derm Institute.

Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne are soft, flexible, natural appearing fillers that are not rigid or stiff and thus integrate naturally with you, your expressions, and your confidence.  There’s no doubt the thought of fillers often conjure up images of overfilled, unnatural, ‘real-housewives’ of insert city of your choosing.  The good news is—when proportional, natural, balanced rejuvenation is done with an injectable filler expert like Dr. Chiu—no one will know.  These next generation fillers that are more flexible and dynamic and move with your own natural expressions only makes soft, unnoticeable rejuvenation that could not be further from the fears of the frozen, overfilled, alien-looking appearance everyone worries about.

Because of their smooth gel characteristic and unique flexibility—Restylane Refyne and Defyne are great first time fillers as well as those who have had fillers in the past but need a little boost in areas with more movement.

Common areas to use Refyne and Defyne:

  • Undereye circles and hollows. Smooth consistency, less likelihood of movement, and less swelling make Refyne a great new choice for a common complaint.
  • Radiating smile lines of the cheeks. Everyone loves a great smile, but those accordion like lines that bunch up the cheeks can be pesky to treat.  Given the natural integration with movement of Refyne and Defyne, we can soften these lines and still have it look natural.image2image3
  • Laugh Lines (Nasolabial folds and marionette lines). Folds around the mouth are influenced by a lot of movement with talking, eating, smiling.  Defyne can help soften these movements and deep folds while staying in place for up to a year.
  • Hollowing or Dimpling of the mid cheek. Over time, when we make expressions like laughing or smiling, hollows around the mid cheek look more prominent.  Giving a hollowed tired appearance.  Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne can soften these areas whether you are smiling or not.

Refyne and Defyne are line extensions of the existing Restylane hyaluronic acid family of fillers using unique XpresHAn Crosslinking technology. This technology allows a more flexible, natural appearing filler that moves with your expressions but doesn’t migrate from the area it was placed.

When fillers are used naturally—it is corrective:  meaning we are replacing lost fat pads and bone structure that occurs with time.  It isn’t about giving you cheeks you never had.  It’s about returning that softness that is associated with youth.  Having products like Restylane Refyne and Defyne allows us to further follow the trend towards natural appearing rejuvenation.  Studies have shown fillers when placed into areas that create wrinkles over time with repeated expression—such as the smokers lines or smile lines, they can actually stimulate the existing fibroblast to produce more collagen.  Making them truly preventative as well.

Like all hyaluronic acid fillers, including Juvederm and Voluma results can be reversed easily—but once you see how soft and natural you look— your worries about looking “done” will dissolve away. . .
