A gradual loss of volume beneath the skin is natural with age. Unfortunately, this displacement of fat causes hollow cheeks, deep smile lines, and overly visible veins and bones on the back of the hands. With Restylane Lyft, you can restore youthful volume in the mid-face and the hands!
Restylane Lyft works in both the immediate and long-term: It boosts volume right away, and continues increasing plump moisture in the skin over time. Like certain other injectables, Lyft does this by way of hydrating hyaluronic acid, which also occurs naturally in your body.
Restylane Lyft Candidates
Injectables are minimally invasive. Most people who want them are perfectly good candidates. The first step is to make sure you have one or more of the issues that Restylane Lyft is well-suited to treating:
- Loss of fullness in the cheeks
- Loss of mid-face volume
- Loss of youthful volume in the hands
- Wrinkles and fine lines (especially nasolabial folds)
Just as important is making sure you aren’t allergic to any of the ingredients, and that you are generally in good overall health.
The Restylane Lyft Treatment Experience
Injections are relatively quick, painless, and convenient. Restylane Lyft contains lidocaine to numb the injected area. We will make sure you are comfortable and know what is happening at each step in the appointment.
The treatment session may last roughly 15 minutes to 1 hour, depending on how many areas are being treated and whether any other treatments are being performed in conjunction. The injections alone take only a few minutes.
How Long Does Restylane Lyft Last?
The longevity of results varies by treatment area. Most people enjoy beautiful results for up to 12 months in the cheeks, 6 months in the back of the hands, and 6 months in the smile lines and other facial folds.
The HA in Restylane Lyft begins to break down over time, which is why the results gradually fade. It’s easy to plan a maintenance schedule with your injector, to maintain the effect.
Cost, Recovery, and Results
When side effects occur, they are most often mild and short-lived. You may experience the following around the injection site:
Most people return to work and all normal activities the same day, or the following day.
The cost of the injectable varies by provider, by geographical region, and by treatment area/number of treatment areas. Ask about the cost for what you want to achieve, and whether any financing is available. Restylane Lyft is cosmetic and not covered by health insurance.
Most people notice a difference right away. The gel itself adds volume to sunken and volume-depleted areas. The results get better with time, as the HA in the product binds with moisture, creating plump, smooth, youthful skin.
