Restylane Lyft


Restylane Lyft is a beautifying dermal filler that is made of Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid (NASHA) gel. This gel adds volume and youthfulness to your facial skin. This naturally-occurring substance can be found in the human body. As a result, there is no need to be allergy tested before receiving an injection of any hyaluronic acid based fillers, including Restylane Lyft.

Restylane Lyft was developed by the same company that makes Restylane. The main difference between the two formulas is that Restylane Lyft is generally used for cheek enhancement or a non-surgical nose job. It also has larger gel particles than the original formula, so it needs to be injected more deeply into the skin for the best possible cheek “lyft.” Because of this, Restylane Lyft offers a longer-lasting rejuvenating effect than Restylane. Our Studio City, California treatment facility has been seeing much longer-lasting results from the Restylane Lyft in patients seeking  a more youthful look.

Restylane Lyft is an FDA-approved treatment for moderate to severe facial folds, fine lines, and wrinkles.

 Causes of Wrinkles and Folds in Your Facial Skin

Although there are other factors involved in the skin as it ages, one of the leading contributors to wrinkled facial skin is a declining level of hyaluronic acid in the skin. This acid is natural to the body when you are young, and its job as part of the skin is to provide it with flexibility and volume. Hyaluronic acid actually binds water to itself, and holds it in the skin, which keeps your skin fresh and moist, and gives it plenty of volume. As your skin ages, though, it starts losing some of the hyaluronic acid, which means that your skin grows thinner, less flexible, and loses its volume and moisture. This increases the rate at which folds and wrinkles in the skin occur.

 Restylane Lyft: Safe?

The whole line of Restylane products has been extensively researched. They are actually some of the most well-researched dermal fillers on the market. Restylane products have been on the market for over 10 years, and numerous studies have been published that show that it is safe and effective. Restylane Lyft has been FDA-approved, and another 70 countries have okayed it for use as a dermal filler. In the United States, over one million people have been treated with it, with almost no one reporting any sensitivity to it. Patients with a known sensitivity to gram-positive bacterial protein should check with a doctor before scheduling their treatment.

 How Often Should I Get an Injection?

 Your results will be visible almost immediately after your first treatment. Effects can last up to 18 months, according to clinical studies, but the average person will see results for about six months. Everyone’s results are unique!  Our studio city California specialists will evaluate your individual progress before helping you schedule your next treatment.

 What Should I Expect at My  Appointment?

Almost always, a numbing injection or cream is used. You will be able to choose between these two options. After the numbing dose is administered, it may take a few minutes for the numbness to set in. After the Restylane injection, results are almost immediate, so no wait time is required. Most patients do experience minor redness or swelling for an hour or two. A few experience some swelling, redness, or bruising for anywhere from several days to a week, although this is extremely rare in our experience.

 Who Should Inject my Restylane Lyft?

 A large number of different kinds of healthcare practitioners are able to administer these dermal filler treatments by injection. All it takes is a bit of extra training. Nurses, dentists, ob/gyns and more, are able to do so. But at our treatment center, only our board certified, extensively trained specialist inject dermal fillers. Although it would make sense to have higher prices due to the expert quality of our staff, we are actually able to maintain a competitive prices because we have a high volume of dermal fillers and other injectable products we can order in bulk for the practice.

After many years of injecting dermal fillers like Restylane and other injectable treatments, our team can quickly gauge how much dermal filler should be used, which brand or type of dermal filler will look best on each patient, and where it should be injected for the most youthful and natural look.
