Frustrated with volume loss and signs of aging around the mouth and nose, but not quite ready for surgery? Restylane Lyft is an injectable filler designed to add contour, volume, and lift to the mid-face, providing a softer, smoother, and more youthful appearance.
As the years go by, most of us are lucky enough to gain extra wisdom and confidence in ourselves. Unfortunately, we also gain a few less exciting things, including a few extra wrinkles and crinkles—and combined with natural volume loss over the years, you may be looking in the mirror wondering who the person staring back is. We understand how a hollow, aged appearance can make you self-conscious about your appearance. We are committed to offering a variety of anti-aging options.
Surgery isn’t the best option for everyone. Whether you want to avoid the expense and recovery or you simply don’t require more invasive measures to achieve great results, there are still options. Restylane® Lyft (formerly Perlane®) is a dermal filler designed to add contour, volume, and lift to the mid-face, providing a softer, smoother, and more youthful appearance.
How Restylane Lyft Works to Restore Natural Fullness Without Surgery
Restylane Lyft is a clear, injectable gel that is comprised of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring carbohydrate that provides moisture and structure to our skin. As we age, our natural reserves of hyaluronic acid are gradually depleted, and our skin becomes thinner and less elastic.
When injected, Restylane Lyft both restores lost hyaluronic acid and provides volume. It is a great option for:
Providing lift and volume to the cheeks, both to address age-related volume loss and also augmenting the cheeks
Restoring a youthful contour to the mid-face
Correcting and smoothing facial wrinkles, such as smile lines
To determine if Restylane Lyft is the best option to address your needs and provide you with optimal results, it’s important to speak with a highly trained and experienced provider, such as a board certified plastic surgeon.
Is Restylane Lyft Right for You?
While Restylane Lyft is a great option for treating a variety of concerns, anti-aging treatments are best approached on an individual basis. During your complimentary consultation, we’ll listen to your concerns, evaluate your trouble areas, and help you explore your options to design the best treatment plan for you. Typically, great candidates for Restylane Lyft meet the following criteria:
At least 21 years or older
In general good health with no underlying conditions that could impact the safety of the treatment or your final results
Want to improve the contour and volume of the cheek and mid-face
Have moderate to severe facial wrinkles
Restylane Lyft is not indicated for treating signs of aging in the upper face, but we can help you create a treatment plan that includes other treatments, such as BOTOX®, for enhanced, more comprehensive results.
Your Restylane Lyft Treatment at The Swan Center
When you come in for your Restylane Lyft injections, you’ll be shown to a private, comfortable room. Your injector will “map out” where injections should be placed to provide optimal results. Restylane Lyft is formulated with lidocaine and, depending on your personal comfort level, we may apply a topical anesthetic so you’ll experience little-to-no discomfort. We will expertly and precisely inject Restylane Lyft into the predetermined areas until the desired results have been achieved.
Your treatment should only take between 15 – 20 minutes and you’ll be able to resume normal activity right away! You may experience slight tenderness, discoloration, or swelling at the injection sites, though these side effects should diminish within just a few days. You’ll begin seeing the positive effects of treatment almost immediately, with optimal results appearing over the course of a week or so. Results can last between 10 to 18 months, at which point we recommend coming in for a maintenance treatment.
