Restylane Lyft

Restylane Lyft

Restylane Lyft is now approved by the FDA for cheek augmentation and the correction of age-related midface contour deficienciecies in patients over 21. Restylane Lyft also treats moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines).

As we age and our faces lose volume, over time the natural fat that surrounds the cheeks begins to deteriorate, resulting in sagging skin, more prominent wrinkles and reduction of volume. Through nonsurgical injections, Dr. Feldman can help you regain more definition in your cheeks without surgery. Restylane Lyft is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and the only FDA- approved filler indicated to provide lift to the cheeks and add volume to correct and smooth smile lines.Restylane Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks and midface area, which can result in a more natural-looking youthful appearance.

During your consultation with Dr. Feldman he will discuss and give you a treatment plan based on your concerns and individual needs. Dr. Feldman will also discuss options to make you as comfortable as possible during the procedure, including pain medication. Then your face will be cleansed and prepared to be treated. Dr. Feldman will use ultra fine needles to create the desired aesthetic effect.

Before treatment:

  • Avoid using aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (such as ibuprofen, St John’s wart, or high dose of vitamin E supplements. It is best to avoid these products to limit bruising and bleeding at injection site.

After treatment:

  • Use cold compresses to reduce swelling
  • Avoid touching the treated area for the first six hours following treatment, after six hours the skin can be washed gently with soap and water.
  • Avoid exposure to intense heat sunbathing, until redness or swelling disappears
  • Avoid taking aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, St John’s wort, or high doses of vitamin E supplements for one week post treatment. These agents increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site.

After your treatment, you might have some swelling, redness, pain, bruising, and tenderness. These are typically mild in severity and normally last less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14 days in lips. Swelling may be more likely in patients under 36 years, and bruising may be more likely in patients over 36 years.
