Our skilled Johns Hopkins trained surgeons Dr. Ira Papel, Dr. Theda Kontis, and Dr. Emile Brown offer a variety of dermal filler options such as Refyne to patients in Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Annapolis and the surrounding areas of Maryland.
Many of our Baltimore area patients are excited about the prospect of using dermal fillers to smooth their wrinkles. What they are often not enthused about is the idea of injecting artificial substances into their skin. These individuals appreciate the benefits of Refyne, a hyaluronic acid-based substance designed to reduce upper lip lines and superficial facial wrinkles. Refyne is formulated specifically for dynamic areas like the lips, because it molds and flexes very naturally with movement, just like your own skin. Restylane® Refyne is completely nonsurgical, with no downtime required.

- Improved lines around the nose, mouth, and chin
- Maintain a natural look but with younger-looking skin
Refyne is an effective solution for those who experience some of the first signs of aging such as laugh lines (nasolabial folds) and marionette lines. Since Refyne contains hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in your body, it is one of the safest dermal fillers on the market. As such, nearly anyone can undergo a Refyne injection, even those who may be allergic to the ingredients in other fillers. Let our physicians know if you are taking any medications such as aspirin or blood thinners because these might increase your risk of bruising after the procedure.
First, we will identify the particular wrinkles you would like to smooth. This will help us determine the exact locations to place your injections. After preparing your syringe, Dr. Papel, Dr. Kontis, or Dr. Brown will deliver precise amounts of Refyne into the targeted areas. The filler also contains lidocaine, so the area will be numbed as Refyne is injected. However, applying a strong topical numbing agent prior to the injection is also an option. The injection process then takes about 10-20 minutes to complete.
There is no required downtime after Refyne, but patients can expect some mild swelling, bruising, and redness that will resolve within a few days after treatment. Results of Refyne can be seen right away for smoother, younger looking skin with lines and folds filled in. The results of Refyne can last for up to 12 months before a touch-up session is needed.
During your consultation, we will be glad to answer all of your questions, including those pertaining to specific techniques that might affect your cost. We will also help you determine the best method of payment based on your needs and budget. Many times, we are able to offer specials that help patients maximize their cosmetic procedure dollars. On other occasions, we may recommend financing through a major credit card or low-interest financing through CareCredit® or Prosper® Health Care Lending.
If you are anxious to look and feel your best, contact Dr. Papel, Dr. Kontis, and Dr. Brown today to schedule your Refyne consultation. We proudly serve patients from Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Annapolis and the surrounding areas of Maryland.
