What is Restylane Lyft®?
Restylane Lyft is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face. Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks and midface area.
How does Restylane® Lyft work?
Over time, natural fat begins to deteriorate, resulting in sagging skin, more prominent wrinkles, and a reduction of volume. Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine is injected into the skin with an ultrafine needle to plump the skin to smooth away wrinkles and folds such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth. Restylane Lyft can also be injected with an ultrafine needle or a small, blunt-tipped cannula to increase the fullness of your cheeks.
Are there any side-effects?
Possible side effects include swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, tenderness, lump formation, and itching at the injection site. These are typically mild in severity and typically resolve in less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14 days in lips. Serious but rare side effects include delayed onset infections, recurrence of herpetic eruptions, and superficial necrosis at the injection site.
How soon will I see the results?
One treatment takes approximately 30 minutes and the results can be seen immediately.
How long do Restylane Lyft® treatments last?
In a clinical trial involving 150 subjects, blinded evaluators observed that 90% of subjects treated with Restylane Lyft showed an improvement in fullness in the right and left midface areas (combined) at 2 months, and 54% of subjects showed an improvement at 12 months. Additionally, 95% of subjects reported that they were satisfied with the appearance of their midface at 2 months, and 73% of subjects were satisfied at 12 months.
