Restylane Lyft

Restylane Lyft is an FDA-approved hyaluronic dermal filler used for implantation into the skin for the correction of moderate to severe facial folds such as the cheek area and wrinkles such as nasolabial folds. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in all living organisms and provides volume and fullness to the skin. Restylane Lyft differs from Restylane primarily in the size of the particles and the depth of the required injection. Restylane Lyft, which is used for deeper wrinkles, has larger particles that are injected deeper into the skin. Restylane Lyft is not approved for use in lip enhancement.

The three dimensional gel particles in Restylane Lyft are hydrophilic molecules which attract and bind to our water molecules and should maintain volume for about six to eight months.

Possible Side Effects with Restylane Lyft:

  • Bruising
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Pain/Soreness

Most side effects occurred in 70 to 90 percent of patients, except for itching, which occurred in roughly 30 percent of patients.

Side effects were rated as none or tolerable in most patients.
