While the aging process is an inevitable part of life, looking old is not. Loss of volume in the cheeks is one of the most prominent signs of aging. When the skin loses its natural elasticity, and the essential fat in the deeper layers of the skin is depleted, the cheeks lose facial support. This leads to hollowing and sagging of the skin, creating an older, rougher-looking appearance.
Restylane Lyft is the optimal choice for patients that are looking to restore the plumpness and volume of their cheeks and rejuvenate their appearance.
What is Restylane Lyft?
Restylane Lyft, also known as Perlane, is the first FDA-approved filler designed to promote fullness in the cheeks and increase volume to smooth out smile lines (nasolabial folds). Like other Restylane products, it is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler with a large particle size that enhances definition in the midface when administered to the deeper layers of the skin.
By correcting issues such as sagging of the cheeks and mid-face, Restylane Lyft causes a reduction in the appearance of nasolabial folds, smile lines, and jowls. Once the tissue is lifted, the Restylane Lyft formula can be injected directly into these areas to provide increased softness to their appearance. This restores the patient’s natural youthfulness and creates a natural, enticing appearance.
Restylane Lyft has the ability to give the cheeks a naturally lifted look, with skin that looks smooth, not stretched.

Patients looking to counteract the side effects of aging may find relief in Restylane Lyft. It is a safe, FDA-approved dermal filler that provides a highly effective method for managing a myriad of skin aging concerns. It is ideal for patients looking for the following things:

What is the procedure like?
Restylane Lyft is a quick and virtually pain-free in-office treatment. To ensure that patients are as comfortable as possible, topical agents are applied to the treatment area, as well as ice or anesthetic injections. The dermal filler is gently injected into the target regions that are predetermined during the consultation.
What is the recovery process like?
After the procedure, it is common for patients to experience slight discomfort and mild side effects such as bruising. They are typically able to return to normal activities right away.
Patients are instructed to refrain from using blood thinning medications and consuming foods containing ibuprofen, aspirin, Vitamin E, Fish oil, alcohol, and chocolate for at least 2 weeks prior to and following the procedure. After the initial treatment session and follow-up appointment are completed, results are expected to last up to a year.
