When we think of the aging face, our first thought is of the skin itself; it loses elasticity and begins to sag and droop. Lines, wrinkles, and folds begin to form, and skin tightening treatments or even facelift surgery become increasingly inevitable. However, a significant portion of facial aging is due, not just to loose, sagging skin, but volume loss. The breakdown of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid causes deep folds, creases, and even hollow cheeks. This is where dermal fillers, like the new Restylane Defyne, come into play.
Restylane Defyne, along with its counterpart Restylane Refyne, are the newest additions to the Restylane family of dermal fillers. Brought to us by Galderma, the makers of Dysport, Restylane Defyne is a hyaluronic acid filler that replenishes lost facial volume related to age, weight loss, and other causes.
