Restylane Lyft is one of the newest dermal fillers on the market to be approved by the FDA for increasing volume in the cheeks, and the naso-labial folds. Restylane Lyft can significantly improve the appearance of the mid face by increasing cheek volume to improve contours and balance to the face. The goal is to achieve a natural appearance, with cheeks that are perfectly balanced with the temples and the jaw.
Restylane Lyft is one of the latest products offered by Galderma, the makers of Restylane. Formerly known as Perlane, this treatment option is a hyaluronic gel that is injected into the cheeks to provide volume and lift to the treatment area. Restylane Lyft is the only dermal filler approved to treat loss of cheek volume as well as nasolabial folds making it a pioneer in its field.
Upon injection, the gel adds volume under the skin improving hollows, resulting in immediate improvement in facial contours. Hyaluronic acid is an all-natural, skin-identical structural protein similar to collagen or elastin. It is present in youthful skin but reduces as we age. These injections supplement your natural supply of hyaluronic acid, which smooth out signs of aging and brings out the best of your features. When Restylane Lyft is administered into the cheeks, the hyaluronic acid molecules continuously attract moisture to the treatment area, thus helping maintain mid-face volume.
The loss of cheek volume is a common occurrence with age, as the skin loses elasticity and the superficial fat under the skin become depleted. With reduced elasticity and less support underneath the skin, the cheeks begin to look hollow and sag. Restylane Lyft replaces the lost volume in the area to provide the skin with much-needed support, and give your face a more youthful appearance.
Restylane Lyft can also reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds, the lines that run from the sides of the nose to the sides of the mouth. These folds are the results of a life-time of facial expressions over the years, which eventually lead to creases in the skin due to loss of elasticity. By administering Restylane Lyft will restore support to the area, reducing the appearance of nasolabial folds. Further, Restylane Lyft on other parts of the face, to add volume improve contours including the chin and the temples.
Restylane Lyft can even be layered and combined with other filler products like Restylane, Restyalne Silk among others.
The longevity of Restylane Lyft varies from patient to patient, and will depend on the severity of the problem being corrected, as well as your unique biology. However, patients can expect results that last from 12-18 months.
