Restylane® Lyft received FDA approval for use to correct age related volume loss in the cheek area. It gives us another tool for providing fullness to the midface area which is a common cause of mid-to-lower face sagging and premature aging.
With age the natural fat within the cheeks begins to deteriorate, resulting in a reduction of volume, sagging skin and more prominent wrinkles.
Once Restylane Lyft is injected into the deep dermis it adds volume to restore surface contour to creat a younger looking appearance.
Over 95% of patients reported improvement after 2 months in the appearance of the midface area.
The most common side effects after initial treatment are typically bruising, redness or swelling.
Restylane Lyft is the product formerly known as Perlane®.
