While Restylane® Defyne has been FDA-approved for the use of nasolabial folds, Dr. Leong has found that Restylane® Defyne can be particularly effective in the mid-face region. It is critically important for your plastic surgeon to customize their use of fillers not only for each individual’s anatomy, but also to address the way in which each patient uses their face to uniquely express themselves.

When fillers are used in their correct combination and with an artistic touch, tremendous improvements in cosmetic appearance can be achieved, often eradicating or at least delaying the need for cosmetic surgery.

During Restylane® Defyne injections, will I experience any pain?

Dr. Leong is very mindful of his patients’ comfort level, and he has years of experience injecting fillers. He administers local anesthetic during treatment in our Pittsburgh, Wexford, Mt. Lebanon, Sewickley or Greensburg office to minimize pain and discomfort. Results are immediately visible, and patients are able to return back to work right away. Dr. Leong also injects dermal fillers only with microcannulas, as opposed to needles. This approach reduces the bruising and discomfort that can be associated with dermal fillers.

Will I bruise after treatment?

Bruising is a possibility and should be considered when scheduling your appointment. If you refrain from blood thinning agents (such as alcohol, ibuprofen, fish oil, Vitamin E, and Aspirin) a week before treatment, you can reduce your chances.

Also, Dr. Paul Leong injects the filler using blunt tip needles (microcannulas), which also minimizes the risk of bruising. However, given the chance of bruising, it is prudent to schedule your Restylane Defyne treatments at least several days in advance of any significant event.
