How Is the Restylane Lyft Procedure Performed?
The procedure is conducted in our licensed medical aesthetic facility by an Aesthetic Injection Specialist who will administer the dermal filler into the targeted areas of your cheeks and face to provide volume and correct cosmetic issues. The dermal filler is injected deep into the fat layers located beneath your skin to provide optimal results. The exact injection sites chosen will vary based on your individual circumstances and the specific contours of your face.
How Long Does a Restylane Lyft Treatment Take at MD Aesthetica?
The length of time it takes to perform the procedure will vary depending on the number of injections required and the locations to which it will be administered. After numbing the area with a topical anesthetic and/or ice, your provider will make a series of injections using a fine gauge needle. In addition to topical numbing, Restylane Lyft contains lidocaine to increase patient comfort.
Do Restylane Lyft Injections Hurt?
Restylane Lyft contains lidocaine to improve patient comfort. Additionally, topical anesthetic and/or ice may be used to numb the area for improved comfort. Acetaminophen may be used following treatment; however, we recommend avoiding aspirin or ibuprofen medications as these can increase bleeding and bruising. Most patients only experience minimal bruising and swelling following treatment and report only a subtle pinch during treatment.
How Does Restylane Lyft Work?
Restylane Lyft works in two phases. While some results are visible immediately, the fillers do take some time to reach their full effect. After the injections, the gel adds volume that immediately improves the contour of your face. This helps reduce wrinkles and fine lines while giving your skin more support that smooths out the texture. The long-term effects of this dermal filler are produced when the hyaluronic acid in the formula reacts naturally with your skin to attract more moisture. This additional moisture boosts the volume and elasticity of your skin.
Restylane Lyft can also reduce the appearance of smile lines that run from your nose to the corners of your mouth as a result of thousands of facial expressions over the years. The added support reduces the folds and creases in the skin caused by weakened support structures.
How Long Will the Results of Restylane Lyft Last?
A clinical study found that 89 percent of patients showed improvement within two months of treatment, and over half of the approximately 200 participants maintained the fullness for over a year or longer. To maintain a more youthful appearance, you can opt to receive future treatments for cumulative and prolonged benefits.
