What is Defyne?

Defyne is a hyaluronic acid filler that is used to improve the smile lines on the face.

What is Defyne used for?

Defyne is a flexible filler that is perfect for the corners of the mouth as well as the volume loss along the jawline. What

is Defyne used for?

Defyne is used to replace the volume that we’ve lost in our skin. As we age, we lose volume in the form of collagen and elastin due to the effects of aging and UV radiation from the sun.

Who is a candidate?

Anyone that has volume loss in their lower face is a good candidate for Defyne.

How to prepare for your treatment?

There is no preparation necessary for a treatment with Defyne. On your day of treatment, you will arrive to the Skin & Vein Institute in which you will go back to our numbing room where you will numb with numbing cream for about 30-45 minutes.

What happens during the treatment?

After numbing, you will be brought back to our treatment room in which Dr. Lloyd will treat you with the Defyne to improve the volume loss in your lower face.

What happens after treatment?

After treatment, patients rarely experience any pain, and occasionally will have a bruise. However, if a bruise does develop, I can treat you with the ExcelV laser the day after so that the bruise does not last more than 72 hours.

Is Defyne effective?

Defyne is both a safe and effective treatment of volume loss. More specifically the volume loss in the corners of the mouth and around the jawline.
