Restylane Lyft (Previously Restylane Perlane) is a hyaluronic acid-based filler that gently fills deeper wrinkles and folds, such as the nose-to-mouth lines, frown lines, chin and cheeks, resulting in a softer facial expression. Restylane Lyft is an FDA-approved injectable for smoothing smile lines and increasing volume in the cheeks. Restylane Lyft is a hyaluronic acid gel that contains a small amount of a local anesthetic (lidocaine) to help to reduce the pain of the injection. Results can be achieved in one visit and last roughly 10-18 months.
The firm gel is injected into the deep dermis to add volume to help restore surface contour to approximate a younger-aged appearance. Restylane Lyft corrections maintain volume augmentation for about six to nine months before natural product degradation begins to lessen the effect.
Restylane Lyft® is an injectable gel designed to lift folds and replace lost facial volume from fat loss, bone loss and collagen degradation. Lyft’s water-loving nature attracts and binds water molecules to help maintain volume.
Restylane Lyft is composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the body. The hyaluronic acid in fillers is a crystal clear gel that is chemically cross-linked (the long chemical strands are tied together) to delay breakdown by skin enzymes. All Restylane products are non-animal-based and free from animal protein. This quality prevents disease transmission. Allergy pre-testing is not necessary. Also distinct from other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, Restylane products are minimally cross-linked, making them similar to the natural hyaluronic acid found in the body.
