WHAT IS IT USED FOR?
The Restylane Lyft with Lidocaine formula is specifically designed for correction of some of the deepest facial folds, including furrows and skin lines, and deeper lines around the nose and mouth area. It can be used also for filling in contoured areas of the face, such as cheeks, in order to shape the area and restore youthful look and fullness of the skin.
This is an amazing product, as just one single injection may change the facial contour of the patient. It works great on the eyebrow area, as well as the cheeks, and it can do wonders when it comes to lip enhancement.
HOW DOES DERMAL FILLER WORK?
Along with the aging process, environmental factors can affect the skin, such as exposure to the sun, and the body starts to lose its naturally produced hyaluronic acid. Since one of the main functions of hyaluronic acid is to hydrate the skin and to transport nutrients, as a result of this process, the skin gets looser and starts to lose volume. This is when wrinkles and facial lines are formed, and they can only get deeper without any intervention.
Restylane Lyft with Lidocaine can treat the aging process by reintroducing hyaluronic acid deep into the skin tissue. When injected deep into the dermis, the hyaluronic acid has the ability to plump the area, while adding lost volume to the skin and smoothing out wrinkles and facial lines.
Hyaluronic acid is also known to stimulate collagen growth, which increases the skin’s elasticity and strength.
As it contains Lidocaine, this product has an immediate anesthetic effect, in order to ensure comfort and also to prevent any sensation of tenderness in the area that is being treated.
HOW TO INJECT?
Every cosmetic procedure must be done by a professional that is trained and licensed to perform it correctly. Inject Restylane Lyft deep into the skin tissue to treat the most severe facial folds. Because of its thick formula, it can add volume to extreme skin depressions.
The procedure it done with a small disposable needle. The addition of lidocaine acts as anesthetic and reduces any discomfort during the procedure. When injected deep underneath the skin, the product can smooth the facial lines and wrinkles that are being treated, while hydrating and adding volume to the skin. The procedure usually takes up to 30 minutes, depending on the areas that are being treated.
The results on deep facial lines, wrinkles and depressions caused by aging are immediate.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Restylane Lyft tends to last longer than thinner hyaluronic acid products, as it is a much thicker formula.
On average, Restylane Lyft can last between 6 and 9 months, and sometimes up to a year. However, the more mobile the area being treated, the shorter the effects last.
