Restylane Lyft® is ideal for deeper folds and restoring and reshaping areas of the face where there is significant volume loss, Restylane Lyft® (formerly Perlane-L) can practically erase prominent laugh lines, marionette lines, or “parentheses” for 6 months or longer.
RESTYLANE LYFT® VS. RESTYLANE®
What makes Restylane Lyft® different from Restylane® is the average size of the particles and the depth of injection. On average, the gel particles in Restylane Lyft® are larger than those in Restylane®, which makes Restylane Lyft® a good choice for smoothing out more severe wrinkles from deeper within the skin.
HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS FROM RESTYLANE LYFT® INJECTIONS?
You will see an improvement in the severity of your wrinkles immediately after treatment. Some temporary swelling, redness, bruising, or tenderness is possible at first, so it may be a few days before you see the final results. These effects are usually mild and shouldn’t prevent you from returning to your daily activities.
Swelling may be more likely in patients under the age of 36, and bruising may be more likely in patients over the age of 35.
WHAT DO INJECTIONS FEEL LIKE?
Most patients describe a pinching feeling with injection. We can give you a topical anesthetic to ease any discomfort. Because it already contains lidocaine, a mild anesthetic, Restylane Lyft® can help increase comfort during treatment.
HOW LONG DOES RESTYLANE LYFT® LAST?
Restylane Lyft® can last up to 6 months. In our experience, results of hyaluronic acid filler products like Restylane Lyft® are quite consistent, lasting 6-9 months on average. Many patients notice their results for a full 12 months or longer, but since each patient is so unique, it is best not to suggest this will be true for all.
If you’re new to fillers, Restylane Lyft® can be an excellent option to “try out” the results of injectable wrinkle treatment to fine-tune your idea for how you want to look.
