Restylane Refyne & Defyne – The New Fillers on the Block

           Art of Skin MD is one of the first practices in the San Diego area offering Galderma’s newest members of the Restylane family that are changing the game with a very exciting new ability – flexibility. What makes this so exciting? Flexibility means a more natural look, and in the hands of the right injector, that can be game changing.

            Dr. Palm serves as an advisory board member, clinical investigator, national speaker and physician trainer for Galderma, meaning that she has been selected to educate other physicians on products’ use and safety. She has also assisted in studies related to Galderma products. Both Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne were FDA approved in December 2016 and released in the U.S. in January 2017. Prior to this, Dr. Palm was among the first U.S. physicians to inject the product and was selected to learn from Canadian experts outside of the country on injection techniques prior to Restylane Refyne and Defyne becoming available in the U.S.

          What makes these fillers different from other hyaluronic acid fillers already available? The hyaluronic acid strands of both Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne are bonded together in a way that creates a smooth gel that may provide not only a longer duration and less swelling than some other fillers used for wrinkle reduction, but also allows for more movement due to its flexibility. One of the most dreaded fears of patients is looking as though they have an unnatural appearance, and this is when choosing the right injector can make a huge difference. Dr. Palm is careful to select the right injectable dermal filler for each patient, and with the smoothness of both Restylane Refyne and Defyne, when injected by expert hands, they lend themselves to a very natural result by integrating into the areas of injection extremely well.

Ultherapy Review: PAINLESS ultrasound treatment for a new toned neck and face

Having completed Ultherapy on six patients this past week alone, I am pleased to say how comfortable patients undergoing skin tightening treatment with myself (Dr. Melanie Palm).  Using local nerve blocks on the neck, lower face, and around the brow area, Ulthera can be completed in about an hour in complete comfort.   Skin tightening occurs gradually over a several month period following treatment.  The treatment itself feels like tingling and slight warmth.  The patient experience during Ultherapy is entirely dependent on how the physician prepares he/she for treatment and we at Art of Skin MD are proud to say that treatment is completed with Dr. Palm WITHOUT SEDATES and using only LOCAL NUMBING.   Check out Ultherapy and a brief explanation with Dr. Palm through our YouTube video: Questions about Ultherapy?  See our Before and After Ultherapy gallery.  Schedule a consultation by contacting Art of Skin MD online or call us at (858) 792-7546 (SKIN).

                      Loose, lax tissue on the face and jawline got you down? Not ready for invasive surgical procedures such as a facelift? Then Ultherapy might be the answer you are looking for...here is the scoop:   1.  Ultherapy has NO downtime!  Treatment with the device takes approximately 30-60 minutes and with proper pain management (carefully administered nerve blocks), the procedure is quite comfortable. 2.  Ultherapy results are dramatic but occur gradually.  The tightening effect occurs over approximately 3 to 6 months and lasts for over a year.  For patients with pronounced skin laxity, more than one treatment may be needed for the desired skin tightening effect. 3.  Ultherapy works by targeting the deep tissues that are tightened and re-draped during a facelift, but with minimal discomfort and a fraction of the price.   Ultherapy works to create new collagen in the connective tissue that physicians treat during surgery.   Here are some great (and representative) before and after photos of Ulthera:
