Youthful, healthy individuals naturally have fat stores under the skin which keep it looking plump and fresh. As we age, these natural stores of fat begin to break down, resulting in more noticeable wrinkles, sagging skin, and a reduction of youthful volume. Restylane® Lyft is an injectable dermal filler used to correct volume loss and diminish wrinkles in the face and hands for a more youthful look.

What is Restylane® Lyft?

Restylane® Lyft is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler used for adding lift to the cheeks, smoothing smile lines, and adding volume to the backs of the hands. It works by creating a plumping effect beneath the skin, adding youthful volume and smoothing out lines and wrinkles.

Overall, Restylane® Lyft can be used to improve the look of:

  • Hollow cheeks
  • Lines and wrinkles on the forehead
  • Smile lines and laugh lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Loss of volume in the backs of the hands

Who is a Candidate for Restylane® Lyft?

Individuals 21 years and older who wish to soften to the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, restore facial volume loss or rejuvenate the appearance of the back of their hands are often good candidates for Restylane® Lyft. Do not receive this treatment if you have a history of severe allergies, have a bleeding disorder, or are pregnant or breastfeeding.

What to Expect During Your Restylane® Lyft Treatment?

The Restylane® Lyft treatment process is fairly straightforward. Your injector will begin with cleaning the targeted areas and applying a numbing cream to make sure you are comfortable. Then, a small syringe will be used to inject the Restylane® Lyft. Overall, a treatment session can take anywhere from 30-90 minutes to complete, depending on the size of the treatment area.

Restylane® Lyft Results

The effects of Restylane® Lyft can be seen shortly after treatment and will continue to improve over the next 1-2 weeks. Results can last for 12-18 months in the face and up to 6 months in the hands. As with other filler treatments, Restylane® Lyft is associated with side effects such as swelling, pain, redness, bruising, and itching at the injection sites. These effects are usually mild and resolve with time. There is no downtime needed following treatment, so you can feel free to return to your regular activities. We do advise that you avoid extensive exercise and direct sun exposure for the next 24 hours to ensure the best outcomes.
