What is Restylane Lyft?

Restylane Lyft (formerly known as Perlane-L) is an FDA-approved filler that lifts cheeks and adds volume to correct and smooth smile lines (also known as nasolabial folds). Dr. Ross A. Clevens injects Restylane Lyft to the more pronounced facial folds and wrinkles such as those on the sides of the mouth. It is also a popular filler for facial depressions, and facial scarring. It can be used in both men and women.

What is Restylane Lyft made of?

Restylane Lyft is made from hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance within our bodies that easily adjusts and molds to the facial contours. Because Restylane Lyft is a non animal product and does not pose any risk of allergies, no skin testing is required prior to the injection of Restylane Lyft.

How does Restylane Lyft work?

The hyaluronic acid in Restylane Lyft augments the body’s natural supply, which has become depleted with age. Dr. Ross A. Clevens can inject Restylane Lyft to fill up scars, lines and wrinkles on the face. Restylane Lyft is not a long-lasting product and is broken down in the body. A Restylane Lyft correction can remain for about 6-8 months after injection.

What is the advantage of Restylane Lyft?

Restylane Lyft not only is much safer but also lasts longer than collagen as a dermal filler.

What is the difference between Restylane Lyft and Restylane?

The major difference is that Restylane Lyft is a larger molecule compared to Restylane, because it contains more hyaluronic acid molecules.
