Restylane® is used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane® is also indicated for lip augmentation.
Restylane Lyft® is approved by the FDA to correct volume deficit in the back of the hands, for cheek augmentation and the correction of age-related midface contour deficiencies, as well as the treatment of moderate to severe facial folds, such as the nasolabial folds (smile lines). Lyft® is the first and only hyaluronic filler approved by the FDA to treat face and hands. Lyft® contains 0.3% lidocaine, which is added to reduce the discomfort during treatment.
How Soon Can I expect Results?
Depending on your volume needs, most Restylane® treatment appointments last less than an hour and begin to work almost immediately by adding volume to smooth away wrinkles. A clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, Restylane® products act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid (and eventually break down naturally). Each Restylane® product is designed for a specific purpose.
How Long Does It Last?
With full treatment, you can see lasting results for up to 18 months in nasolabial folds with Restylane®.
With Restylane Lyft, results up to 12 months in the cheeks, up to 6 months in the back of the hands, and up to 6 months in facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
How Long Is the Recovery Time?
After your treatment, you may experience side effects, such as swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, tenderness, lump formation, itching at the injection site and impaired hand function. These are typically mild in severity and normally last less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14-18 days in lips.
