With age, the skin becomes thinner and loses elasticity and its ability to retain water. This leads to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, making individuals look tired, sad, or older than they feel. Dermal fillers can help restore and maintain youthful appearance.
What is Restylane® Refyne?
Restylane® Refyne is a soft and flexible dermal filler used to treat wrinkles around the lips, such as the nasolabial folds and the marionette lines. The filler can also help minimize the appearance of wrinkles to achieve patients’ aesthetic goals. Treatment results can last up to at least 18 months with one follow-up treatment.
Before the Procedure
Patients will have a consultation with the physician before undergoing any treatment. Patients should come prepared with clear treatment goals and questions about the procedure. During the consultation, the physician will discuss the steps of the procedure and explain who is a candidate for Restylane® Refyne. The physician will also go over the steps he or she will take to ensure the patient’s needs, goals, and expectations are met.
The consultation is also the best time for the patient to share details about their medical history and any allergies they may have. Patients should leave the consultation well-informed about their treatment options and expectations.
How to Find a Cosmetic Treatment Center
Restylane® Refyne injections can only be performed by a qualified healthcare practitioner to ensure the treatment is performed correctly. Patients should take some time to learn about the treatment center’s staff, read customer reviews, and make sure they feel comfortable in their care.
The medical environment should be well-cleaned and afford patient privacy during both treatment and consultation. Patients may also request to see their chosen practitioner’s training certificate and insurance certificate to ensure that he or she is appropriately trained and insured for providing treatment.
Restylane® Refyne injections may be performed by plastic surgeons, cosmetic clinicians, dermatologists, cosmetic dentists, or aesthetic nurses.
What to Expect During a Consultation
Upon arrival, patients will receive comprehensive information about Restylane® Refyne treatment. This information should cover:
- The possibilities and limitations of treatments with hyaluronic acid
- Possible side effects and precautions for treatment
- The cost of the treatment and possible follow-up treatments
During the consultation, patients should discuss the following with their healthcare practitioner:
- Current use of immunosuppressive medications
- Current use of aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), or any other medication that affects bleeding
- Questions about precautions related to the treatment
What to Expect During the Treatment
The healthcare practitioner will begin by disinfecting the treatment area. He or she will then use a fine needle or blunt micro-cannula to inject a small amount of the filler to fill wrinkles, add volume, and shape the face or fill the lips. After the injection, the practitioner will gently massage the treated area to help the filler distribute evenly.
Once the procedure is complete, the patient will receive post-treatment guidelines. Common post-treatment side effects may include redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising, or tenderness at the treatment site. These side effects are typically mild and disappear within one week after treatment.
