Restylane® Lyft for Cheek Volume Enhancement and Non-surgical Cheek Lift
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). Restylane® Lyft is a hyaluronic acid filler with a large particle size that treats midface contour deficiencies when injected into the deep dermis. The correction of sagging cheeks and mid-face helps to decrease the appearance of nasolabial folds, marionette lines and jowls. Once the tissue is lifted, the Restylane® Lyft can be injected directly into the nasolabial folds and marionette lines to further soften their appearance. This restores a youthful look and creates a natural, healthy appearance. Restylane® Lyft gives results that create a cheek that looks lifted, not filled and skin that looks smooth, not stretched.

Clinical Results with Restylane® Lyft Injections
Perlane® which was FDA approved in 2007 for placement into the mid-deep dermis for treatment of nasolabial folds is now FDA approved and renamed as Restylane® Lyft for cheek augmentation by placement into the deep dermis and superficial subcutis into the midface. In clinical trials, patients were injected with an average of 6.227 ml of Restylane® Lyft to their midface and cheek area which included an initial injection and then a 2 week touch up injection. 98% of the patients reported satisfaction with Restylane® Lyft at 2 months and 72% reported satisfaction at 12 months post treatment. The patients reported that their cheeks looked smooth and attractive after the 12 months. The most common adverse events observed in the trial included tenderness, redness, bruising, swelling and itching. These events decreased in severity over time and most were resolved within 2 weeks.
