Restylane Lyft® is a specialized dermal filler formula from the famed Restylane® (Perlane®) laboratories that is designed to add volume to the cheeks and mid-face region. Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Gregory S. Keller and his team of dedicated specialists provide treatments such as Restylane Lyft® at Keller Plastic Surgery, serving residents of Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and nearby areas in Southern California.
Why consider Restylane Lyft®?
Perlane® (Restylane Lyft®) is the only approved dermal filler treatment used to correct lost volume in the cheeks and nasolabial folds (deep lines that run from the nostrils to the corners of the mouth). Lost volume in the cheeks commonly happens with aging because fatty tissue under the skin’s surface becomes depleted, stripping the skin of its elasticity and fullness. Lacking elasticity and fullness beneath the skin’s surface, the cheeks sag and take on a hollow appearance. Perlane® (Restylane Lyft®) increases support below the skin’s surface and increases volume to restore a more youthful appearance. Perlane ® (Restylane Lyft®) may be used in combination with other injectable facial dermal fillers, such as Restylane®, Restylane Silk®, and Sculptra®.
What is Restylane Lyft® used for?
Perlane®, or Restylane Lyft®, is a specialized formula developed by Galderma who developed the original Restylane®. Formerly called Perlane®, Restylane Lyft® is a gel-like substance that is injected into the cheeks to add lift, fullness, and volume to the cheeks and mid-face area.
How does Restylane Lyft® increase facial volume?
Restylane Lyft® contains hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural chemical in the body that binds with water to help skin cells attract and retain moisture. When the HA gel is injected into your cheeks, its molecules trigger increased hydration and moisture retention in the skin cells of that area, increasing volume and fullness in your cheeks. Restylane Lyft® gel delivers hyaluronic acid directly to the layers beneath the surface of the skin to immediately enhance facial contour, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and improve smoothness and firmness in the skin. The increased volume and hydration supports and nourishes the skin cells and naturally fades lines and creases. Restylane Lyft® provides ongoing benefits as the HA continues to increase hydration in your skin cells, producing additional gradual improvements over several weeks.
Who is Restylane Lyft® designed for?
Perlane® (Restylane Lyft) ® is an ideal option for patients with severe facial wrinkles that require a dermal filler to work at deeper levels by way of a deeper injection. Perlane® (Restylane Lyft)® is an excellent option for patients who want to increase facial volume, enhance fullness in the cheekbones, and increase natural hydration of skin cells for a smoother, younger-looking appearance.
Is there anything I should be aware of before using Restylane Lyft®?
Although Restylane Lyft® treatments require little to no preparation, Dr. Keller will need to know if you have received any other injections within the past four months, and if you’re taking any medications, such as aspirin and other blood thinners, allergy medications, sleep aids, NSAIDS, or muscle relaxers, as you may need to suspend use of these medications for a few days prior to treatment to prevent possible bruising. We also recommend that you avoid consuming alcohol for two days prior to treatment and refrain from smoking before and after your treatment to ensure optimal results.
What kind of result can I expect from a Restylane Lyft® treatment?
You will see results immediately after the treatment is completed, and there is no downtime required after a Restylane Lyft® treatment. Results generally last between 12 and 18 months.
