Restylane Defyne® in Houston

Are you noticing more wrinkles and folds in your lower face? Do you wish you had been given a more prominent chin? If you say ‘yes’ to either of these questions and do not know how to make improvement, consider a dermal filler treatment to bring back that younger, sexier you. This is a non-surgical way to change your chin and mouth areas significantly.

Our cosmetic specialists at ShineMD Medspa and Liposuction Center suggest the use of Restylane Defyne® in Houston to patients who want to soften laugh lines (nasolabial folds) and marionette lines that can form over time around your lips. As you age, your skin loses some of its ability to snap back into place because of lower elastin and collagen production. Defyne can also help make your chin more proportionate with the rest of your face if you find it too small.

What is a Restylane® Defyne Dermal Filler?

Our Houston specialist will explain that Restylane dermal fillers are a specially formulated version of hyaluronic acid, which is a sugar found naturally in your body that helps retain fluid in your skin. It is also included in many skin moisturizing lotions. Defyne is produced using special cutting-edge technology called XpresHAn Technology™, which helps create a smooth gel. This will integrate into your skin and give you a very natural-appearing improvement. It can be used with all skin types and works well for both men and women, young and old. The Defyne formulation is also designed to work well with the movement of your mouth and chin.

Dermal fillers are non-surgical treatments. The filler is injected during a short visit to our office. We use topical anesthetics to ease any discomfort so you do not need someone to drive you home. The Defyne gel contains a small amount of lidocaine to help keep you comfortable longer.

What Happens After My Treatment?

After a Restylane Defyne treatment at our Houston office, you can return to most of your routine activities immediately, except for anything strenuous. You can easily cover any bruising with makeup and use an ice pack to keep any swelling or puffiness down.

You will notice improvement instantly as the gel pushes up to make a crease shallower or as the gel helps create your new chin or jawline. Restylane® Defyne can be a quick solution for when you have limited time before a special event. You will see further changes over the following days as collagen and elastin production ramps up. These new proteins will help add tissue to the treatment area.

As a dermal filler, Restylane® Defyne is not considered permanent but it can last up to a year and sometimes longer. When you feel that the improvements are disappearing you can schedule an appointment to help renew your appearance.

We do not use dermal fillers in people who have a bleeding disorder or are on blood thinners. We cannot use any dermal filler that contains lidocaine, like the Restylane fillers, if you are allergic to it. If you have a skin infection or severe acne, we will wait until the infection is treated before injecting a dermal filler. If you are pregnant or still breastfeeding, we prefer that you wait until after you have delivered and completed breastfeeding.
