Aging skin loses natural support structures that keep skin supple and youthful. As time goes by, collagen and elastin diminish within the skin, and this can result in wrinkles and folds. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity. As this and other support structures diminish and change (often a result of age and lifestyle), we can replace that lost volume with a hyaluronic acid filler such as those in the Restylane family of products. Blaine Plastic Surgery offers Restylane injections, including Defyne, Lyft and Refyne, at our clinics in NYC, Staten Island and Huntington, NY.
The Restylane suite of products are all formulated to add volume under the skin with hyaluronic acid, but each formula is designed to address specific areas and issues. Some formulas are meant to be used for lip enhancement or to fill fine lines, while others can add volume deeper in the skin. All Restylane products offer immediate results and can last for several months or more, depending on the formula.
For contouring the face or adding volume to hollows under the eye, Lyft injections can be the solution. Lyft is a thicker, denser formula of Restylane, designed to be used to replace lost volume in the face as a mid-dermal filler. Restylane Lyft is also the first filler injection to be FDA-approved for adding volume to the skin on the hands to combat aging.
For mild-to-moderate smiles lines or nasolabial folds, Refyne can smooth and enhance the midface. Refyne is flexible, but it is thick enough to add volume in the smile lines around the nose and mouth to create a more youthful appearance.
For moderate-to-severe smile lines, Defyne injections are a better option than Refyne. This formula is slightly firmer for deeper nasolabial folds, helping fill and smooth etched smile lines on the face. Like Refyne, the results can last up to 12 months.
Restylane injections at Blaine Plastic Surgery offer patients a safe and instant rejuvenation with minimal discomfort and downtime. Your expert injector will design a personalized treatment plan specific to your anatomy, lifestyle and aesthetic goals.
