Restylane® Defyne is a hyaluronic acid filler that reduces moderate to severe signs of aging around the nose, mouth, chin, and jawline. The filler uses XpresHAn technology to ensure the hyaluronic acid naturally bonds with the patient’s skin cells, creating a subtle and natural look.
The XpresHAn technology also allows the hyaluronic acid gel to naturally move within the skin as the patient makes facial expressions. Whether the patient is smiling or frowning, the filler will appear soft and natural and not form any lumps or bumps.
How Restylane® Defyne is Used
Restylane® Defyne was approved by the FDA in 2016 for use on moderate to severe nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and facial wrinkles around the mouth and lower face. Restylane® Defyne was also recently approved for use along the chin and jawline to improve contouring.
Marionette lines are the lines that appear between the corners of the lips and extend down to the jawline. Nasolabial folds are lines on either side of the mouth that extend from the edge of the nose to the mouth’s outer corners; these lines are most visible when smiling.
This filler is a great option for improving the firmness and smoothness of the skin without altering the use of natural expression. The FDA approval of Restylane® Defyne for use in chin augmentation will help patients restore volume in the jawline and enjoy a more pronounced and youthful appearance of the chin.
After treatment, patients will have improved elasticity, facial rejuvenation, and a more youthful appearance that may last up to one year.

What to Expect During the Procedure
The procedure is designed to be simple and convenient, requiring no downtime.
The patient will meet with Dr. Burgos to discuss their needs, goals, and expectations. During the consultation, the doctor will assess the patient’s skin conditions and medical history to ensure they’re a candidate for Restylane® Defyne. If the patient is a good candidate for the procedure, the physician will begin the procedure by cleansing the treatment area and applying a topical numbing cream to prevent discomfort and pain.
Dr. Burgos will then inject Restylane® Defyne to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and to improve the appearance of the chin and jawline, according to the patient’s preferences. He has extensive experience performing cosmetic injections and patients rest easy knowing they are in good hands.
Potential Side Effects
Side effects are minimal and mild. After treatment, patients may experience redness or bruising at or near the injection site. More serious side effects are rare and are more likely to occur when the procedure is performed by an inexperienced physician.
