Restylane® Lyft

Restylane® Lyft is the only dermal filler approved to treat loss of cheek volume as well as nasolabial folds and can significantly improve the appearance of the mid-face by increasing cheek volume to bring more balance and contour to it. California Skin Institute was proud to be one of the first practices in the entire country to offer this treatment to our patients.

California Skin Institute: Top 100 Restylane® Lyft Provider

California Skin Institute has been named a Top 100 volume injector of Restylane ® Lyft.

This Top 100 recognition is a testament to our experience and expertise with the Restylane® Lyft product and procedure, making our practice the destination of choice for high patient satisfaction with quality outcomes.

What is Restylane® Lyft?

Restylane® Lyft is one of the latest products offered by Galderma, the developer of the original Restylane® filler. Formerly known as Perlane®, this treatment option is a gel-like substance that is gently injected into the cheeks to provide volume and lift to the treatment area.

How Restylane® Lyft Works

Restylane® Lyft works in a two-step process that gives California Skin Institute patients improvements that are both immediate and long-lasting. Upon injection, the gel itself takes up volume under the skin to provide an immediate improvement in the contour of the face. This can also help with skin texture and reduction of wrinkles in the treatment area, as the boost in volume gives the skin more support and smoothes out creases in the skin.

The long-term effects of Restylane® Lyft are achieved with the hyaluronic acid formulated into this filler. This chemical occurs naturally in the skin and is well-known for its ability to attract moisture. When Restylane® Lyft is administered into the cheeks, the hyaluronic acid molecules continuously attract moisture to the treatment area, thus helping maintain cheek volume.

What Restylane® Lyft Treats

At the time of this writing, Restylane® Lyft is the only dermal filler approved to treat loss of cheek volume as well as nasolabial folds.

The loss of cheek volume is a common occurrence with age, as the skin loses elasticity and the fatty tissues under the skin become depleted. With reduced elasticity and less support under the skin, the cheeks settle into a sagging, hollow appearance. Restylane® Lyft replaces the lost volume in the area to provide the skin with much-needed support and give your face a more youthful appearance.

Restylane® Lyft can also reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds, the lines that run from the sides of the nose to the sides of the mouth. These folds are the results of tens of thousands of facial expressions over the years, which eventually lead to creases in the skin due to weakened fiber structures. By administering Restylane® Lyft into the area, the appearance of nasolabial folds decreases, due to the additional support under the skin.

Further, California Skin Institute providers have even been trained to effectively use Restylane® Lyft on other parts of the face, to add volume and reduce wrinkles. For example, some of the additional areas where your provider can use this filler include the chin and the temples, just to name a few.

Restylane® Lyft can even be layered and combined with other filler products like Restylane, Restylane Silk, and Sculptra, among others.

How Long does Restylane® Lyft Last?

The longevity of Restylane® Lyft varies from patient to patient, and will depend on the seriousness of the problem being corrected, as well as your unique biology.

What to Expect during Restylane® Lyft Treatment?

During your Restylane® Lyft consultation, your California Skin Institute provider will analyze your facial structure to accurately estimate how much of the dermal filler will be necessary.

California Skin Institute is one of the first practices in the country to offer this dermal filler, and our providers are highly trained to evaluate proper amounts for injection. This is vital with a filler like Restylane® Lyft, because the goal is to achieve a natural appearance, with cheeks that are perfectly balanced with the temples and the jaw.

Does Restylane® Lyft Hurt?

California Skin Institute providers are experts when it comes to making your treatment as comfortable as possible by using topical anesthetics and small needles. Further, Restylane® Lyft is formulated with lidocaine, which will help alleviate discomfort during the procedure.
