Restylane Defyne is an FDA approved, hyaluronic filler that helps to smooth out and plump up moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. Restylane Defyne improves deep lines by restoring elasticity and volume to the skin. Restylane Defyne is especially designed to improve the appearance of the lines that go from the nose to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial lines) and those that appear around the mouth (marionette lines).

Frequently Asked Questions
As the skin ages, it loses elasticity and begins to droop. At the same time, volume in the cheeks are lost as collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid begin to break down, resulting in deeper hollows and creases. This results in the formation of age-related lines, wrinkles, and folds across the face. Restylane Defyne reverses these changes by adding natural-looking volume and softening lines for younger-looking skin.
Yes! A clinical study showed that 97% of patients were satisfied with their treatment results and would do the treatment again one month after having Restylane Defyne. Our patients are routinely able to see their skin’s texture and volume restored immediately or soon after injection.
This next-generation filler can last up to 12 months, after which touch-ups may be necessary.
This facial filler contains lidocaine, a numbing agent that minimizes the discomfort. To further reduce discomfort, we offer squeeze balls and topical numbing cream. Most of our patients at Skin and Laser Dermatology Center tolerate the injection well and rate the discomfort as very low.
There is no required recovery time after the treatment. Patients are able to work, run errands, and enjoy time with family and friends immediately after the injection. We recommend taking a 24 hour break from vigorous exercise after the injection, though walking and gentle stretching is fine.
Restylane Defyne uses hyaluronic acid, a naturally occuring sugar in your body, to give the skin moisture, volume, and elasticity. A recent innovation using XpresHAn Technology has made the Restylane fillers, including Restylane Defyne, even more effective at molding to your skin, so your results are natural and soft. Restylane Defyne’s flexibility and S&L Dermatology Center’s unique ability to inject based on the movement of your face means we are confident that your expressions will remain your own.
The filler is injected into the facial skin through a small needle to smooth facial wrinkles and laugh lines. For most patients, the procedure takes 15 – 30 minutes.
Swelling, bruising, and pain can occur after injection and can be relieved by applying cold compresses and taking Extra Strength Tylenol. Bruising can especially be minimized by avoiding aspirin and other blood thinners (Motrin/Advil/Ibuprofen, Aleve, etc.). Post-injection swelling (edema) can also occur in a small subset of individuals and resolves spontaneously. In some cases a medication can be given to treat the swelling. Recovery time is usually less than a day so Restylane will not interrupt your work, travel, or family plans.
Skin & Laser Dermatology Center treats patients for all skin care concerns, including skin cancer surgery, cosmetic dermatology, sclerotherapy, laser peels, laser hair removal, hyperhidrosis, rosacea, and acne treatments.
Our Clients Say
My eyelid surgery results for the facial wrinkles look very natural. Very skilled dermatologic surgeon.
Dr. Bajoghli always has time for his patients, you never feel that he is rushing you and after you leave if you have any concerns he is very responsive to the point of giving out his cell phone number. I can’t say enough about him and his staff.
Nurse Rassmussen answers all of my questions, listens to my concerns, examines my skin, goes over my treatment protocol and gets me out the door quickly, but without feeling rushed, so that I can get on with the rest of my day. I have already recommended this practice to a couple of friends, and I will continue to do so with confidence.
I really appreciate the polite and professional service that Dr. Bajoghli’s practice provides in my dermatologic health. All of his staff make you feel welcome and are concerned for your care. Speaking as someone who neglected his skin care when I was young, I appreciate having a physician who is personally concerned for his patients.
