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).
What does it feel like?
Restylane Silk is injected under the skin with a minimally invasive needle. The treatment usually is about 30 minutes and we have our patients come to numb 15 minutes before their appointment to minimize any discomfort that may be caused from the injection.
How does it work?
Restylane Lyft is the first and only FDA-approved filler with the ability to provide fullness to the cheeks, as well as restore lost volume in the midface area. Lyft contains 0.3% lidocaine, which is added to reduce the discomfort during treatment. We use topical numbing cream to help reduce any discomfort from the treatment.
When will I see the results?
Results can be noticeable immediately after treatment. However, there can be swelling due to the numbing agents used or from the injury to skin from the needle during the injection. Therefore, it can take up to two weeks to be completely healed and the product to be settled.
