What is Restylane® Lyft?
Restylane® Lyft is a dermal filler gel containing hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body. It is an FDA-approved injectable filler to treat lost skin volume in the cheek area as well as in the nasolabial folds, often called the “smile lines,” that run from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth.
Restylane® Lyft is one of several products in the Restylane® family and is often referred to as a mid-dermal filler because it is used in the mid-face region to smooth and soften deeper facial wrinkles and in the cheek area to restore sunken cheeks due to lost volume.
What are the Benefits of Restylane® Lyft?
Benefits of Restylane® Lyft include:
- Long-lasting results
- Procedure takes only 15 to 45 minutes to perform
- Minimal side effects
- Little to no downtime required
- FDA approved to treat two different facial areas
- Natural looking results that can be seen almost immediately
How Does Restylane® Lyft Work?
As we age, the fatty tissue surrounding the cheeks starts to deteriorate. The end result is a loss of skin volume in the cheek area, saggy skin and more noticeable wrinkles. Restylane® Lyft was specifically designed and FDA-approved to treat those areas, providing an added lift to the cheeks while replenishing volume to soften and diminish the appearance of the nasolabial folds.
Injections are made by a fully licensed health care practitioner, using a very fine micro-needle to inject the Restylane® Lyft into the mid-face area. Restylane® Lyft includes lidocaine as part of its formulation, keeping discomfort at a minimum.
Is Restylane® Lyft Right for Me?
Because Restylane® Lyft contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, most healthy men and women over the age of 21 can benefit from its anti-aging effects on facial skin.
During your consultation, we’ll discuss your options with you and help you determine if Restylane® Lyft is the best choice for you, based on your medical history and your personal aesthetic goals.
If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, injectable dermal fillers should not be used. They should also be avoided if you’re on, or have recently used, blood thinners.
If your cheeks appear “sunken-in” or your smile lines are so pronounced you don’t feel like smiling, Restylane® Lyft may be the perfect solution for you. It can restore a more youthful look to your appearance and give you a great reason to start smiling again.
