It’s a part of life — our skin changes as we age. It becomes thinner, loses fat and volume, and no longer looks as plump and smooth as it once did. Facial aging actually begins in your 20s, when skin firmness begins to decrease as a result of both internal (genetics and natural aging) and external (sun exposure, smoking, pollution, sleeping positions, etc.) As we age the hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity diminishes causing skin to lose volume while increasing the chances for wrinkles and folds to appear. Overtime, the natural fat that surrounds the cheeks begins to deteriorate, resulting in sagging skin, more prominent wrinkles and a reduction of volume.
What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid (HA) that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced HA, helping to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, focusing on the lines that run from your nose towards the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corners of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines). Restylane® is also FDA-approved for lip enhancement in patients over the age of 21 to give your lips fullness and definition.
What is Restylane® Lyft?
Restylane® Lyft 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 and only FDA-approved filler indicated to provide lift to cheeks and add volume to correct and smooth smile lines (nasolabial folds).
How does Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft work?
Restylane® injectable gel is injected underneath the skin which fills and flattens the soft tissue of the dermis. This procedure helps reduce of the appearance of wrinkles and removes lines. Restylane® injectable restores hyaluronic acid that becomes depleted due to various factors over time. Restored levels of HA in your skin can give it a tighter, smoother, and overall more youthful appearance. Restylane® Lyft differs from Restylane®, as if injected into the deep dermis to add volume and restore surface contour from bone loss, fat loss, and collagen loss. Restylane® Lyft is indicated to provide lift to cheeks and add volume to “smile lines”. Restylane® Lyft naturally attracts water and helps maintain a more “plump” appearance.
With thousands of injections performed yearly, our nurses aim to give you a natural, more youthful look. Our nursing staff is not commissioned or incentivized to inject more product than is necessary for you to achieve your desired outcome.
