There’s a new filler in the Restylane family: Restylane Lyft. Available through your favorite skin clinic in West Hollywood, Restylane Lyft is a dermal filler newly-approved by the FDA to treat mid-cheek contour deficiencies. It subsequently offers cheek augmentation without the need for surgery. Restylane Lyft is the first and currently the only FDA-approved filler for treatment of nasolabial folds and the mid-cheek area.
Originally called Perlane-L, this new advancement offers a variety of benefits. Let’s review a few frequently-asked questions about Restylane Lyft to help you determine if it’s the right wrinkle filler in West Hollywood for you:
How is Restylane Lyft Used?
Restylane Lyft is used to lift and restore volume to the cheeks. It is also used in the treatment of nasolabial folds, to add volume and definition to the jawline, cheekbones, and chin, and to fill in acne scars.
How Does It Work?
The dermal filler works by replenishing lost hyaluronic acid, a substance found in the dermis that breaks down as we age. This breakdown results in wrinkled, saggy, droopy skin. Restylane Lyft restores hyaluronic acid and “plumps” affected areas of the face so skin appears smooth and supple. It is placed deep within the dermis to provide the volumizing effect.
How Long Does Restylane Lyft Last?
Restylane Lyft lasts nine to 12 months. Treatment of wrinkles and lines lasts for up to nine months, while cheeks remain plump for 12 months.
Are Results Immediate?
As with most dermal fillers, results of Restylane Lyft are immediately noticeable. There is no downtime, meaning you can resume normal activities the day you receive injections.
What About Side Effects?
Side effects are mild and can include bruising, swelling, pain, itching, and redness. A cold compress alleviates these effects, which rarely last more than a week. More severe, rare side effects include darkening of the skin at the injection sites, red bumps, and a reactivation of the herpes virus.
