What to Expect

Restylane Lyft is a specially formulated hyaluronic acid gel formulated to correct facial volume loss and excessive vein visibility on the hands with non-surgical injections.
The face and hands begin to lose volume and tone as we age, causing fine lines and wrinkles to become more apparent. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that helps to hydrate and restore volume to the skin. Restylane Lyft enhances the body’s natural supply of hyaluronic acid to increase volume, fullness, and hydration while reducing wrinkles and creating a more youthful appearance.

What is Restylane Lyft Injections?

Restylane Lyft, formerly known as Perlane, is an advanced hyaluronic acid gel to enhance facial volume and restore a natural-looking symmetrical appearance. It is most commonly used to lift the cheeks, smooth wrinkles, and add volume to the back of the hands.

You want to look your best and feel confident in your skin? Consider Restylane Lyft injections for a simple, non-surgical approach to age-related volume loss and wrinkles to boost your natural beauty in minutes.

Restylane Lyft Injections Technique

The Restylane Lyft treatment is a quick and easy process that doesn’t require anesthesia. Michelle will sterilize the area with alcohol before beginning the injections. Restylane Lyft is injected with a tiny needle in the specific sites where you would benefit from more volume. During your consultation appointment with your plastic surgeon, you’ll determine exactly where you should receive the injections to reach your aesthetic goals. Depending on how many injections you’re receiving during a single appointment, the procedure could take 15 minutes to one hour to complete.

Your Restylane Lyft results should become fully apparent within two weeks of the injections. Once the filler has settled, it will work with the body’s natural processes to increase collagen production and create a long-lasting, natural-looking effect. Patients can enjoy the benefits of Restylane Lyft for 6 to 12 months. Patients may receive two to four injection sessions per year to maintain optimal results.

Since Restylane Lyft injections are minimally invasive, there’s virtually no downtime, and most recipients can immediately return to normal activities.

Types of Procedures

The Restylane Lyft injectable treatment is a quick and straightforward process. We may perform the injections on the same day as your consultation. After the procedure is complete, you don’t have to worry about drains, dressings, or stitches, as the Restylane Lyft injections are entirely non-surgical and minimally invasive.
