Restylane LyftRestylane Lyft is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face. Due to its larger particle size, it is injected along the periosteum and deep dermis to lift sagging tissue. As we age, sagging occurs (naturally) due to gravity and genetic disposition.

Restylane Lyft formally known as Perlane is the first and only FDA-approved filler indicated to provide fullness to cheeks and add volume to correct and smooth smile lines (nasolabial folds).

As we get older, we experience bone loss and decreased collagen production and elasticity. The malar fat pads which are referred to as your “cheeks” begin to fall and sag as you age. The descent of the malar fat pad is what creates deep nasolabial folds and even marionette lines.

Restylane Lyft is placed along the cheek bone and mid- face to lift sagging skin in order to decrease the appearance of nasolabial folds. The placement of Restylane Lyft in the cheeks can also help decrease the appearance of jowls, marionette lines and hollowness under the eyes. Restylane Lyft is a great option for patients that are looking for full and taut cheeks that they may have lost over time. The treatment helps create a natural, healthy glow.

In clinical studies , Restylane Lyft was proven to be highly effective and long lasting. After 6 months of treatment in the midface and cheek area, over 70% of patients experienced improvement in their nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Also, over 90% saw fuller and natural- looking cheeks.

After 12 months of treatment with Restylane Lyft, 72% felt that their cheeks looked smooth and attractive. Also, 70% were still satisfied with the appearance of their cheeks.

Restylane Lyft can also be used with other fillers especially those of the Restylane family. Restylane Lyft can be coupled with Restylane around the mouth and Restylane silk for lip augmentation and treatment of “smoker lines”.
