A loss of facial volume occurs naturally as you get older. Losing this essential volume can leave you with an overly gaunt or aged appearance. Dr. Deborah Farrell uses Restylane® Lyft — formerly Perlane® — to non-surgically restore volume to the face in order to achieve fuller, younger-looking facial contours.
Why Consider Restylane® Lyft?
Restylane® Lyft is a hyaluronic acid gel filler that is designed to restore facial volume, improve areas of sagging skin, and treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles. This non-surgical treatment is effective for improving fullness of the cheeks to restore youthful contours, as well as filling in other skin folds, such as nasolabial folds (lines extending from the edges of the nose to the corners of the mouth).
Like traditional Restylane®, Restylane® Lyft also combines the benefits of lidocaine to minimize any discomfort felt during and after treatment. Patients who are allergic to lidocaine should not undergo treatment with Restylane® Lyft.
How Is Restylane® Lyft Performed?
Dr. Deborah Farrell will work with you and listen to your goals and expectations to design a customized Restylane® Lyft treatment plan for you.
During your treatment, Dr. Farrell will carefully administer each syringe into the required areas to restore volume. The hyaluronic acid gel filler is used to plump the area beneath the skin, working to lift gaunt or hollow areas in the cheeks and midface, or to fill in wrinkles such as nasolabial folds.
What Is the Restylane® Lyft Recovery Process Like?
Restylane® Lyft requires little to no downtime following your treatment. You may experience minor side effects such as bruising, swelling, and discomfort at the injection locations. However, these should all fade within a week or so of your treatment. Most patients are able to return to their normal routine just hours after their session is complete.
When Will You Notice Your Restylane® Lyft Results?
Restylane® Lyft provides patients with results that are immediately noticeable. You will notice more fullness of your cheeks and midface, as well as improvements to any treated lines or wrinkles. Restylane® Lyft often provides patients with results lasting one full year or more, after which you may choose to undergo additional treatments to maintain your improved look.
