Restylane Lyft

Restylane® Lyft is approved by the FDA for cheek augmentation and the correction of age-related midface contour deficiencies in patients over the age of 21.


What Is Restylane Lyft?

Restylane Lyft is a popular dermal filler made from an anesthetic called lidocaine, water, and hyaluronic acid, which is a sugar that the body produces. Levels of hyaluronic acid in the body naturally decrease over time, reducing the skin’s ability to retain water. Hyaluronic acid fillers, like Restylane Lyft, help to rehydrate the skin and restore lost plumpness.

Restylane Lyft is one of many Restylane products that’s specifically designed to reduce wrinkles and improve volume in the hands and face. The Restylane Lyft gel is completely clear and capable of significantly lifting folds and restoring volume – Restylane Lyft involves a deeper injection of larger particles compared to many dermal fillers. The addition of lidocaine makes the injection procedure more comfortable, so many patients don’t require a secondary pain reliever.

Over time, the natural fat that surrounds the cheeks begins to deteriorate, resulting in sagging skin, more prominent wrinkles and a reduction of volume. Restylane Lyft, formerly known as Perlane-L®, is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face. Through nonsurgical injections, Restylane Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks and midface area, which can result in a more natural-looking, youthful appearance.

Who Is the Ideal Candidate for Restylane Lyft?

If you’re unhappy with the volume of your cheeks or have deep wrinkles, sagging skin, or hollow cheeks, then you could be a good candidate for Restylane Lyft in Chicago. Restylane Lyft treatment areas include the cheekbones, chin, nasolabial folds, upper and lower lips, tear troughs, and eyebrows. Restylane Lyft is a suitable treatment for men and women with light and dark skin tones. However, your doctor may advise an alternative treatment if you have severe allergies, including an allergy to lidocaine, or if you have a bleeding disorder. During a consultation at the Kovak Cosmetic Center, we’ll discuss your expectations and medical history to determine if Restylane Lyft is the right dermal filler for you.

It’s often possible to use Restylane Lyft in combination with other popular dermal fillers, including Restylane Silk, Juverderm, and Dysport. If you have prominent nasolabial folds (smile lines) or you’re lacking volume in your cheeks, then Restylane Lyft could be the perfect cosmetic treatment for you. Restylane Lyft is a quick and low-pain treatment for restoring plumpness to the face and smoothing wrinkles in the hands, with results that can last for around 6 months or longer.

The Restylane Lyft Procedure

Restylane Lyft injections in Chicago are performed with an ultrafine needle. Your doctor at the Kovak Cosmetic Center will carefully inject the gel into predetermined areas on your face or the back of your hands.

The procedure time will vary depending on how many injections you have; it can take as little as 15 minutes, or up to 60 minutes for many injections. Due to the anesthetic in Restylane Lyft, you should only experience minimal discomfort. The effects of lidocaine can last for up to an hour after the treatment.

There’s only a little downtime after Restylane Lyft treatment, so you’ll be able to return to normal activities quickly after the injections.
