What is Restylane Lyft?
The FDA approved Restylane Lyft™ specifically to return volume to deficient cheeks, the mid-face area, and the backs of the hands. You may not have heard about Lyft™; that’s because it was formerly known as Perlane. Laser & Mohs Dermatology of New York offers Restylane® Lyft™ for restoring youth to the hands and face. The hands are areas we often forget when thinking about aging. But as the skin thins our veins and tendons take on elevated prominence. Injections of return volume, making your hands look younger.
As with all Restylane® products, Lyft™ is a hyaluronic acid filler. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body whose job is to hydrate, plump, and firm the skin. It does this by binding with nearby water molecules. Because hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance, all Restylane® fillers are classified as “natural” fillers.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Restylane Lyft?
Restylane Lyft is a great solution for patients who are looking to rejuvenate their hands, hollow cheeks, and nasolabial folds. Good candidates for this treatment are over the age of 21 years old and are in general good health.
You may not be an ideal candidate for Restylane Lyft if you are pregnant, breast feeding, have an active infection, or a current acne breakout. Dr. Adelle Quintana will thoroughly evaluate you during your consultation to ensure that you are an ideal candidate for this procedure.
Restylane® Vs. Restylane® Lyft
The difference between the two injectables 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 a good choice for wrinkles that benefit from a deeper injection into the skin.
Restylane Lyft Injections
Because it is meant to target volume loss in the cheeks and mid-face, Restylane® Lyft™ is injected more deeply. For this reason, Lyft™ has the local anesthetic Lidocaine built into its formulation. This helps keep the patient comfortable during the injection.
Injectable Hand Rejuvenation
People tend to overlook the hands when it comes to signs of aging, but they are actually very notable indicators. Thinned skin, crepey-ness and volume loss can make the hands look ages older than the body. Restylane Lyft is a dermal filler that is FDA approved to rejuvenate the hands and restore lost volume. The product is used to reduce the effects of thinning skin and depletion of fat within the hands. Results of this product last up to six months and many patients choose to revisit for multiple sessions.
How Long Will My Restylane Lyft Results Last?
Lyft™ is injected in a single session, not through multiple appointments. Your results are immediate as the hyaluronic acid bonds with water molecules in the injection sites and instantly adds volume. Lyft™ will provide volume for 12-18 months, making it one of the longer-lasting fillers.
