How does Restylane Refyne/Defyne treat wrinkles?
Restylane Defyne and Refyne are FDA-approved fillers that are designed to treat facial wrinkles using XpressHAn technology, which enables natural and flexible facial movement and expressions. They use hyaluronic acid to reduce the appearance of smile and laugh lines, with natural, long-lasting results.
Refyne filler targets mild to moderate dynamic wrinkles, which occur from repeated facial expressions like laughing, smiling, and frowning, while Defyne filler treats more severe wrinkles.
A Refyne or Defyne treatment can help:
- Minimize creases, lines, and wrinkles
- Hydrate skin
- Rejuvenate skin
- Plump facial lines
- Improve volume loss
- Improve perceived age

What is a Restylane Refyne/Defyne treatment like from a dermatologist?
Injectable fillers are administered with a small needle or microcannula based on the size of the treatment area and how much filler is needed. Restylane Refyne and Defyne treatments are minimally-invasive and can take up to 30 minutes to administer. Many patients find the treatments painless, but topical numbing cream and other options are available to ensure a positive experience. It is a simple procedure with little to no downtime—patients can resume normal activities immediately after treatment.
When will I see results?
Patients can often see immediate results. Minor side effects such as redness, swelling, and bruising can delay complete results for one to two days. Once the skin is healed, results are visible and long-lasting.
How long will my results last?
Restylane Refyne and Defyne treatments can last up to one year. Your Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Pennsylvania physician can recommend proper follow-up treatments to maintain your positive results indefinitely.
