Restylane® Lyft is approved by the FDA for cheek augmentation and the correction of age-related midface contour deficiencies in patients over the age of 21. This is in addition to treating moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines).
The Restylane Family of dermal fillers includes Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Silk, Refyne, and Defyne; each is purposefully designed to treat specific areas of the face.
HOW DOES RESTYLANE LYFT WORK?
Over time, the natural fat that surrounds the cheeks begins to deteriorate, resulting in sagging skin, more prominent wrinkles and a reduction of volume. Restylane Lyft, formerly known as Perlane-L®, is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face. Through nonsurgical injections, Restylane Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks and midface area, which can result in a more natural-looking, youthful appearance.
Restylane Lyft is the first FDA-approved filler indicated to provide lift to cheeks and add volume to correct and smooth smile lines (nasolabial folds).
As with any hyaluronic acid treatment, the most common side effects were bruising, redness, swelling, pain, headache, tenderness and itching. These events decreased in severity over time, and most were resolved after two weeks.
