Restylane® Lyft

Restylane Lyft is the first and only FDA-approved filler indicated to provide lift to cheeks and add volume to correct and smooth smile lines (nasolabial folds).

Over time, the natural fat that surrounds the cheeks begins to deteriorate, resulting in sagging skin, more prominent wrinkles and a reduction of volume. Restylane Lyft, formerly known as Perlane-L®, is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face. Through nonsurgical injections, Restylane Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks and midface area, which can result in a more natural-looking, youthful appearance.

RESTYLANE LYFT FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)

Restylane Lyft (formerly known as Perlane-L) is an FDA-approved filler that lifts cheeks and adds volume to correct and smooth smile lines (also known as nasolabial folds). Restylane Lyft is injected into the more pronounced facial folds and wrinkles such as those on the sides of the mouth. It is also a popular filler for facial depressions, and facial scarring. It can be used in both men and women.

WHAT IS RESTYLANE LYFT MADE OF?

Restylane Lyft is made from hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance within our bodies that easily adjusts and molds to the facial contours. Because Restylane Lyft is a non animal product and does not pose any risk of allergies, no skin testing is required prior to the injection of Restylane Lyft.

HOW DOES RESTYLANE LYFT WORK?

The hyaluronic acid in Restylane Lyft augments the body’s natural supply, which has become depleted with age. Restylane Lyft can be injected to fill up scars, lines and wrinkles on the face. Restylane Lyft is not a long-lasting product and is broken down in the body. A Restylane Lyft correction can remain for about 6-8 months after injection.

WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF RESTYLANE LYFT?

Restylane Lyft not only is much safer but also lasts longer than collagen as a dermal filler.

CAN RESTYLANE LYFT BE USED WITH OTHER PRODUCTS?

Yes, Restylane Lyft treatment can be combined with other fillers and treatments such as Botox.

What Areas of the Face Can Be Treated with Restylane Lyft?

Restylane Lyft injections improve the contour of facial skin, decrease unsightly wrinkles, and reduce fine lines around the nose, folds, scars, and other facial skin depressions.

WHAT CONDITIONS CAN RESTYLANE LYFT BE USED TO TREAT?

WHEN CAN ONE SEE THE EFFECTS OF RESTYLANE LYFT INJECTIONS?

The benefits of Restylane Lyft treatments are immediate and usually remain after 4-8 months. Areas around the lips and chin may require more frequent touch up every 4-6 months, whereas other areas of the face may remain wrinkle free for 6-8 months.

HOW LONG IS A TREATMENT?

Restylane Lyft injections do not take long. They can be performed anywhere from 30 minutes or less.

HOW LONG DOES RESTYLANE LYFT LAST?

The effects of Restylane Lyft last twice as long as collagen…up to 6-8 months.

IS THE INJECTION PAINFUL?

There is minimal pain associated with injection of Restylane Lyft. Prior to your treatment at Clevens Face and Body Specialists, a topical anesthetic will be applied 20 minutes prior to the injections.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

Restylane Lyft is a safe product. Because it is made up of hyaluronic acid (which is also a normal component of the human body) the skin does not react adversely to the product. The most common side effects have been temporary redness, swelling, itching or tenderness. These side effects usually resolve in a few days.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RESTYLANE LYFT AND RESTYLANE?

The major difference is that Restylane Lyft is a larger molecule compared to Restylane, because it contains more hyaluronic acid molecules. This means that Restylane Lyft can easily fill in deep skin wrinkles, scars, and creases better than Restylane. Restylane on the other hand can be used to treat the finer lines.
