Over time, your skin can begin to lose elasticity resulting in lines around the nose and mouth. Restylane Refyne can add support to your skin to smooth out laugh lines and give your face a youthful rejuvenation. Dr. Dodde offers Restylane products to candidates in the Holland, Grand Rapids, and Muskegon areas.
What is Restylane Refyne?
Restylane Refyne is an injectable filler used to improve lines around the nose, mouth, and chin known as laugh lines. Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance, is used in the Restylane Refyne formula to soften and improve the skin. Like the body’s own hyaluronic acid, the formula will break down safely and naturally overtime. The gel formula can be placed into facial lines and folds to add volume, resulting in a smooth appearance while still allowing full function of all facial expressions.
Am I a good candidate for it?
Those who experience moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds can benefit from Restylane Refyne. The treatment is approved for individuals over the age of 21 who do not have a history of allergic reactions or bleeding disorders. During a consultation with Dr. Dodde, you will be asked about your concerns and medical history to determine if you are a good candidate.
What can I expect from Restylane Refyne?
Restylane Refyne can give almost instant results after being added to facial lines and wrinkles. Treatment is non-surgical, and your session should be complete in under an hour. You can enjoy smoother, younger looking skin for up to 12 months after treatment. While the results of Restylane Refyne are temporary, you might choose to have as many follow-up sessions as you’d like to continue to maintain your smooth skin.
How long is the recovery period?
Because Restylane Refyne is non-surgical, no downtime is required. You might experience some mild symptoms such as swelling, redness, bruising, and itching at the injection site, but these should resolve in the week after treatment.
