Recently FDA approved, Restylane Lyft is a welcome addition to the growing family of cosmetic fillers. The makers of Restylane introduced Restylane Lyft as a “big sister” to Restylane. Restylane Lyft® restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds).
Restylane Lyft is made of non-animal based hyaluronic acid, similar to Restylane. The difference between the two fillers is that the hyaluronic acid molecules in Restylane Lyft are larger. Therefore, the filling potential is greater. The larger molecules also contribute to the longevity of Restylane Lyft.
Restylane Lyft is expected to last approximately 12 months. .Patients are happy when it is used in the nasolabial folds and in the lips. Restylane Lyft, as does Restylane, requires no pre-testing. Restylane Lyft is injected directly into the skin in tiny amounts by an ultrafine needle, resulting in minimal discomfort. This 10 minute procedure is simple and convenient with virtually no downtime. The results are instantaneous and long-lasting.
