Restylane Lyft is is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler and is FDA approved for cheek augmentation and the correction of midface contour deficiencies related to aging. It provides lift to cheeks and replenishes volume to smooth smile lines (nasolabial folds).
Restylane Lift is the new name for the Perlane, which has been widely used in aesthetic medicine since 2007.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in the body that has an important role in the maintenance of skin volume and hydration, joint lubrication and cushioning, as well as eye volume and shape.
It’s incredibly hydrophilic and retains water, absorbing more than 1,000 times it’s weight, therefore adds volume to skin.
Hyaluronic acid also binds with elastin and collagen, providing essential nutrients to them, which provides elasticity, structure and volume to the skin. Restylane Lyft contains a non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid, and it’s biodegradable and fully biocompatible with human hyaluronic acid.
With aging, skin looses it’s elasticity and volume which leads to a saggy, tired appearance. In the midface area, the age-related hallow cheekbones can be restored, rejuvenated and lifted by Restylane Lyft.
The combination of neuromodulators (Botox, Xeomin, Dysport) with hyaluronic acid containing injectables prolongs the positive rejuvenating effect.
The results are visible immediately and last one year to 18 months, depending on the individual’s skin and health characteristics, muscle movement and injector’s technique.
There are, of course, some instances when the use of Restylane Lyft is contraindicated.
