Defyne is an injectable within the Restylane family of dermal fillers that uses specifically-formulated hyaluronic acid to correct deep nasolabial or marionette lines around the nose and mouth. Hyaluronic acid is a substance found in the skin that is responsible for moisture retention, and Defyne uses a special cross-linking technology to help the gel support common facial movements around the mouth and nose with long-lasting results.
I was so happy with my experience and outcome as well. Dr. Shaddix has a calming manner (which I really needed), is so professional and really listened to what I wanted and the result is amazing and natural looking - very proportionate to my body just as I had hoped. I highly recommend him”Read Patient Reviews
Your first step in injectable treatment is a consultation with Dr. Shaddix, who can determine which injectable would suit your aesthetic goals best. You should be sure to ask any questions you may have about the procedure and describe your intended results. Dr. Shaddix can ensure you know what to expect from this treatment and create a treatment plan that may include skin or surgical treatments at his professional recommendation.
Injectable treatments begin with a topical anesthetic to ensure that you’re comfortable during the procedure. Then, Dr. Shaddix carefully begins injecting the crystal-clear gel with a very small needle into the treatment area. This can require multiple small injections to ensure your results look natural, and Dr. Shaddix will ensure you know how much product will be required during your consultation. Depending on how extensive your goals are, injectable treatments can take from fifteen to thirty minutes.
You can expect some bruising and swelling after your injectable treatment, but it usually subsides within the day. Dr. Shaddix recommends that you massage the treatment area afterward in order to help distribute the product. If you experience any discomfort, you can manage it with the use of an ice pack. Defyne can last for up to one year, after which you can opt for another treatment or discuss your other options with Dr. Shaddix.
