RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif., Feb. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Nasolabial folds or "laugh lines" as they're commonly known, are rarely a source of humor. Fortunately, leading global pharmaceutical company Galderma recently received FDA approval of two new products intended to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds in patients over the age of 21. Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne dermal fillers have been shown to be effective at diminishing laugh lines for up to 12 months.
One of the first physicians in the nation and the first in the Coachella Valley to offer these new fillers is Dr. Timothy Jochen of Contour Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery Center. Dr. Jochen is among the Top 5 Restylane filler injectors in the nation. Injector experience and an artistic eye for filler placement are key criteria for people considering cosmetic fillers.
"Restylane Refyne and Defyne expand our palette of options for treating the whole face," said Dr. Timothy Jochen. "Patients are pleased with the natural-looking results they deliver and appreciate their longer-lasting profile."
Restylane Refyne and Defyne are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers which feature scientifically-advanced formulas. These next-generation gels are manufactured with XpresHAn Technology which endows each with a greater range of flexibility and support to match up with varied patient needs. Restylane Refyne is designed to be very flexible and provide subtle support, while Restylane Defyne is designed to provide additional support.
FDA approval was based on two pivotal studies involving 171 and 162 subjects respectively, which were conducted to evaluate each filler's safety and effectiveness. Both products met the studies' goals, with Restylane Refyne and Defyne each showing clinically meaningful improvement in wrinkle severity for up to 12 months in the majority of patients.
A leading dermatologist, Dr. Timothy Jochen specializes in medical and cosmetic dermatology and cosmetic surgery. He is a top facial filler injector and among the top 1% of Botox injectors in the United States. Dr. Jochen is also an Associate Professor of Dermatology at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. He also is a Castle Connolly Top Doctor as voted by his peers. Contour Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery Center has offices in Rancho Mirage and Palm Springs.
