Have you started to notice prominent wrinkles, sagging skin, and a loss of facial volume? This is a naturally-occurring development among older people, but there are still methods of reversing facial volume loss and restoring your youthful appearance. Restylane® Lyft was specifically formulated to restore volume to your cheeks and midface area, leading to a very natural-looking result.
What is Restylane® Lyft?
Previously known as Perlane-L, this product is a type of hyaluronic acid injectable that is used to correct facial volume loss and minimize facial wrinkles. It is the first and only filler approved by the FDA for lifting cheeks and adding volume for the correction of nasolabial folds, or smile lines. Each injection contains a form of hyaluronic acid that closely mimics naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is very important for skin hydration and the maintenance of youthful skin. Your own body creates it in abundance when you are young. Unfortunately, the aging process leads to a loss of hyaluronic acid production.
The role of hyaluronic acid in your skin is comparable to that of a sponge. The substance is able to attract many times its own weight in water molecules, which creates a hydrating and plumping effect for your skin. Its age-related loss leads to thinner skin that is more vulnerable to the formation of wrinkles that can make you appear older than your actual age.
How Does Restylane® Lyft Work?
It works by restoring your youthful hyaluronic acid levels via injection. The product is contained within a smoothly flowing gel that easily incorporates itself under your skin. After the product is in place under your skin, it immediately begins to fill out your skin and lift wrinkles up and out by enhancing facial skin volume. Additionally, it increases the moisture content of your skin, making it appear smooth and dewy.
How is Restylane® Lyft Different?
This treatment is mainly intended for those who require a lifting and volumizing of their cheeks. It works by lifting soft tissues below the surface of your skin and filling out hollowed areas. You should notice results from your treatment that can last for quite a while before repeat injections are necessary.
