Restylane Lyft is an injectable gel that has been made from hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance that is made in the skin. As we age, this acid will slowly diminish, resulting in a lost of volume in the skin. With Restylane Lyft, the gel will attract moisture to the area being treated, adding the volume back to your skin.
The particular gel particles in Restylane Lyft are bigger than those in other Restylane products, making it the ideal treatment for moderate to severe nasolabial folds and volume loss.
The entire process will take only a matter of minutes with results being almost immediate. Your injections will last for up to six months at a time, with some patients reporting their results lasting for up to a year.
What is Restylane Lyft?
Restylane Lyft is a dermal filler that is used to treat wrinkles and facial folds in adults. Technically, the filler has been used since 2015 under the name of Perlane but has recently received its new name.
This type of filler is primarily used to add volume back to your cheeks, smooth out any smile lines, and also add volume to the back of your hands.
How Does Restylane Lyft Work?
The Restylane Lyft injections are created with hyaluronic acid, lidocaine, and water, which work together to create a plumping effect. Once injected into the skin, you will notice the volume being restored beneath your skin. This will help to smooth out any wrinkles in the targeted area, as well as folds and find lines. If you would like to maintain the results, future treatments will be necessary.
The addition of the lidocaine in the injections helps to minimize any possible pain during the procedure. This addition will also help to save time during your procedure as you won’t have to wait for a pain reliever to take effect.
What Restylane Lyft Treats?
Restylane Lyft injections are primarily used to help smooth any moderate to severe facial wrinkles while adding lift back to your cheeks. In some cases, it can also be used to restore volume to the back of your hands.
What Results Can You Expect?
In most cases, you will start to see the results from your Restylane Lyft injections shortly after the procedure is complete. However, don’t be alarmed if your results take a few days to be noticed.
Your new, voluminous results can last for up to 8 to 10 months at a time, though these vary based on your individual condition. Depending on the severity of your condition, your doctor may recommend having follow-up treatments to maintain your results.
Once your treatment is completed, you can return to most of your day-to-day activities; however, most doctors recommend staying out of work for at least 48 hours. It’s important that you also avoid excessive sun exposure for one to two weeks after your injections.
How Much Does Restylane Lyft Cost?
It’s important to remember that dermal fillers such as Restylane Lyft are not covered by insurance, as they are considered cosmetic procedures. The national average for an HA-based filler, such as Restylane Lyft, is around $682; however, the cost per syringe ranges between $300 to $650.
Keep in mind, some of the considerations that may affect your total cost will include the number of injections necessary, how often you’ll need to receive treatments, the individual rates of your practitioner, and where you will be treated.
