Patients that are struggling with volume loss in their cheeks or “smile lines” (nasolabial folds) might benefit from the revolutionary new injectable filler known as Restylane® Lyft. This treatment uses a potent hyaluronic acid gel to quickly smooth skin and add volume. With offices in Carmel and Greenwood, Hamilton Facial Plastic Surgery is ready to help you look and feel your best with Restylane® Lyft.
What is Restylane® Lyft?
Previously known as Perlane®, Restylane® Lyft is the newest product from Galderma. This reconfigured formula has given physicians unprecedented control over the amount of Restylane® that is administered to every patient.
How Restylane® Lyft Works
Unlike many other fillers that use pre-made doses, our nurse injector can calibrate every injection to meet the unique needs of each patient. Patients will immediately begin to notice results following their injections with fuller skin and fewer wrinkles. In addition to volume expansion, this product will increase skin elasticity to create a more youthful appearance. Restylane® Lyft also increases skin hydration around every injection site to augment the initial effects.
What Restylane® Lyft Treats
Restylane® Lyft has been approved by the FDA to treat volume loss in the cheeks and nasolabial folds at the corners of the mouth. One of the first signs of aging that many patients will notice is sunken cheeks due to fat loss. Our skin will also begin to lose some of its elasticity which makes wrinkles much more apparent. Restylane® Lyft is an excellent option to treat both of these cosmetic problems. Similar issues around one’s neck, temples and chin can also be treated with Restylane® Lyft.
How Long Does Restylane® Lyft Last?
The results of Restylane® Lyft injections vary between every patient, but most will continue to notice benefits for at least 18 months. Some of the factors that can affect the longevity of this treatment include a patient’s weight, age and general health.
What to Expect During the Restylane® Lyft Procedure
Restylane® Lyft treatment begins with an initial consultation to discuss your goals and medical history. The nurse injector will also inspect your facial structure to determine if this product is right for you. Following the examination, you and your nurse injector will create a personalized treatment plan. It is important to work with an experienced specialist that will be able to choose the correct doses and injection sites to carefully sculpt your face. The final goal is to achieve a fuller, younger and healthier appearance.
What Makes Restylane® Lyft Different than Restylane®?
While both treatments are manufactured by Galderma, Restylane® Lyft is a newer product that gives the physician and injection nurse more control over the final results.
What Is the Cost of Restylane® Lyft in Indianapolis?
The cost of Restylane® Lyft is determined by the total dose that is used and the number of appointments. In addition to financing, Hamilton Facial Plastic Surgery accepts cash, checks and major credit cards. Restylane® Lyft is not covered by most insurance plans.
