Restylane® Lyft is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel from the Restylane family of products that is FDA-approved to lift cheeks, replenish volume, and contour the face by smoothing away wrinkles and smile lines. Restylane® Lyft comes to us by Galderma, one of the most trusted names in skincare, and uses larger particles that are injected deeper to improve skin elasticity and produce a more natural look. It provides the sculpted high cheekbones that you want and smooths out nasolabial folds, commonly known as laugh or smile lines.
How does Restylane® Lyft work?
Restylane® Lyft works in two phases. While some results are visible immediately, the fillers do take some time to reach their full effect. After the injections, the gel adds volume that immediately improves the contour of your face. This helps reduce wrinkles and fine lines while giving your skin more support that smooths out the texture. The long-term effects of this dermal filler are produced when the hyaluronic acid in the formula reacts naturally with your skin to attract more moisture. This additional moisture boosts the volume and elasticity of your skin.
Restylane® Lyft can also reduce the appearance of smile lines that run from your nose to the corners of your mouth as a result of thousands of facial expressions over the years. The added support reduces the folds and creases in the skin caused by weakened support structures.
What can Restylane® Lyft treat?
- Enhance cheeks for midface fullness
- Provide a subtle lower-facelift
- Restore fullness to hollow cheeks caused by aging or weight loss
- Fill moderate-to-severe wrinkles and folds
What is a Restylane® Lyft Session like?
The dermal filler is administered into the targeted areas of your cheeks and face to provide volume and correct cosmetic issues. The dermal filler is injected deep into the fat layers located beneath your skin to provide optimal results. The exact injection sites chosen will vary based on your individual circumstances and the specific contours of your face.
What Results Can Be Expected from Restylane® Lyft?
A clinical study found that 89 percent of patients showed improvement within two months of treatment, and over half of the approximately 200 participants maintained the fullness for over a year or longer. To maintain a more youthful appearance, you can opt to receive future treatments for cumulative and prolonged benefits.
