What is Restylane® Lyft?
Restylane® Lyft is a dermal filler injection used to restore a smooth appearance to facial creases and wrinkles. It contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in your connective tissues.
What does Restylane® Lyft treat?
Restylane® Lyft is for treatment along the sides of the nose and mouth, but it’s sometimes used to enhance other facial areas as well. Common conditions that Restylane® Lyft is used for include diminishing facial lines, wrinkle correction, filling cheek depressions and softening acne scars.
How does Restylane® Lyft work?
Restylane® Lyft works by filling in and plumping up your skin in areas where the natural volume has decreased. Its stabilized, engineered formula is recommended for deep creases rather than shallow lines because of its large particle structure. These gel particles attract water molecules and bind to them to create the plumping effect, giving your skin a more youthful look.
How long does Restylane® Lyft last?
Treatments last approximately six months, and over that time, your body naturally eliminates the injected formula.
What are the side effects?
Restylane® Lyft’s side effects are usually minor and temporary; these may include some redness, swelling and tenderness.
Is there downtime?
Because Restylane® Lyft typically causes little or no downtime, you can often be back to your usual activities without delay.
