Dr. Elizabeth Callahan Introduces Next-Generation Facial Filler Products to Sarasota Market

skinsmart logoSkinSmart Dermatology – the area’s leading medical and cosmetic dermatology practice – is proud to be the area’s first provider of the newest, most effective cosmetic facial filler products for the treatment of nasolabial folds (NLF) or “laugh lines” in patients over the age of 21. Injections of Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne are now available and performed by Dr. Elizabeth Callahan, founder and medical director of SkinSmart Dermatology.

“I’m proud to introduce these amazingly effective next-generation cosmetic facial products to broaden my options when helping women and men at my Sarasota practice achieve facial rejuvenation,” said Dr. Callahan. “Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne are cohesive and extremely elastic, offering more flexibility in areas of movement, such as around the mouth. This advanced composition provides some of the most natural results I have ever seen with a facial filler.”

Dr. Callahan was among 250 cosmetic doctors and one of only five dermatologists from Florida invited to Dallas, Texas, in February 2017 for a special preview with live injection sessions and scientific discussions regarding the innovative technology behind the new dermal filler products. Following the presentation, Dr. Callahan was honored as one of just 50 doctors in the United States chosen to lecture on Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne nationwide.

Developed by Galderma, a global leader focused on medical solutions in skin health, Restylane Refyne was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the safe treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane Defyne received FDA approval for the safe treatment of moderate to severe deep facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne have been shown to maintain effectiveness for the treatment of laugh lines for up to 12 months.
