What is Restylane Lyft?
Restylane Lyft is a dermal filler used for wrinkle reduction. It contains hyaluronic acid (HA), lidocaine, and water to plump the skin. It can be used to add volume under the skin and is typically applied to the cheeks, the area around the mouth, and even the backs of the hands.
Hyaluronic acid is known for being an ideal skin-plumping agent and rarely has side effects. These injections typically take 15 minutes, require no downtime, and are virtually painless. Even better, the effects are immediate and can last from 8 – 10 months.
What are the benefits of Restylane Lyft?
Restylane Lyft is a safe and effective method for augmenting areas on the face and hands that are lacking in volume. These injections can:
Plump sagging cheeks
Hydrate drooping skin
Improve lip structure and volume
Reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face
Restore the youthfulness of hands that have lost volume
Provide a noninvasive method of plumping
Hyaluronic acid (the primary ingredient in this formula) is a naturally occurring substance in the body. This helps your body recognize and integrate the injections, allowing your dermal fillers to last longer and give you more natural results.
Other benefits of Restylane Lyft are its long-lasting results, noninvasive nature, short treatment time, and the lack of discomfort associated with treatment due to the inclusion of lidocaine in the formula.
No anesthesia is necessary for this treatment, which is yet another way in which it is cost-effective.
For the right patients, Restylane Lyft can also be used to sculpt the nose using a procedure called a "nonsurgical nose job." Ask Dr. Mohammedi if this is the right option for you.
Am I a good candidate for Restylane Lyft?
The best candidates for Restylane Lyft treatment are those seeking to add volume to their cheeks, lips, or hands. Whether you've exposed your skin to the sun, are feeling other effects of aging, or have lost weight, there are many reasons that skin can begin to look hollow and "crepey." Restylane Lyft helps plump these areas to give your skin a youthful contour.
No over-the-counter solutions can plump the skin the way dermal fillers can. So Restylane Lyft may be a great option if you are:
Generally in good health
Seeking to add volume to your face or hands
Negatively affected by your aging appearance
Seeking a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure
Willing to have touch-up treatments once or twice a year
