Due to the fact that skin loses elasticity with age, the nasolabial folds area is one of the most popular places for dermal fillers. This area is more commonly known as the laugh lines, but for Restylane Refyne® it can also include marionette lines. Restylane Refyne® is a dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid to smooth out and volumize the places around the mouth most susceptible to wrinkles and fine lines.

After just one injection session Restylane Refyne® can give you a smooth, youthful appearance for up to 12 months. This is a cutting-edge injectable that gives patients flawless, even skin with little to no downtime and minimal side effects.

Nasolabial folds and marionette lines no longer have to be a constant reminder of your age; Restylane Refyne® could be the answer you’ve been looking for.

With over 95 years of combined experience, the staff at Shapiro Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and Skin Klinic is proud to offer Restylane Refyne® to our clients, led by Dr. Shapiro. If you are in the Scottsdale area in Arizona and are interested in receiving a Restylane Refyne® injection, contact us to schedule a consultation. We look forward to hearing from you!

What is Restylane Refyne®?

Aging can cause the loss of soft tissue in areas of the face, and hyaluronic acid acts as a replacement for this lost tissue. It is a very popular ingredient for dermal fillers, as can be seen in one study that shows a 700% jump in the use of hyaluronic acid from 2003 to 2004.

Hyaluronic acid is an already naturally occurring acid in the face, which means that Restylane Refyne® can smooth and refine laugh lines and marionette lines with a beautiful and natural-looking finish.

What are the Side Effects?

Like most dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid, patients who are injected with Restylane Refyne® may experience bruising and swelling following treatment, but these side effects quickly resolve.

Depending on the severity of the side effects, most patients immediately return to their daily activities. Consult with our medical team regarding other possible side effects.

If you are interested in smoothing out your nasolabial folds and marionette lines, Restylane Refyne® may be what you’re looking for.

Contact us today to schedule a consultation and discuss if Restylane Refyne® is right for you. We will also discuss your expectations as well as anything (such as pregnancy) that might disqualify you from being a good candidate for this injectable.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients:

Your safety is our number one priority. Please know that we join our community in taking advised precautions to limit the spread of the Coronavirus. For the time being we are planning on continuing practice as usual, with some additional precautions.

We have always routinely wiped down our office and patient exam chairs with medical-grade sanitizing wipes. We will expand this to include door knobs, toilet and faucet handles and will have hand-sanitizer available to you at check-in.

No staff will be allowed to come to work with a cough or fever, or if they have had contact with anyone with confirmed Coronavirus. We kindly ask for the same considerations from you. If you have any flu-like symptoms or have recently traveled, please call the office to reschedule your appointment.

We appreciate your flexibility as we will be limiting routine follow-up appointments over the next few weeks and ask patients to not bring friends and family members to their appointments to avoid the amount of patients we have in the office at one time. If you have any questions, comments or concerns please call and let us know.

Sincerely, Daniel Shapiro MD, FACS
