Restylane Lyft

Aging causes many changes in the skin. It causes skin to lose fat, become thinner, and begin to lose the plump volume and smooth texture that it once had. The severity of the effects of aging depends upon a variety of individual factors, including diet, lifestyle, and hereditary elements.

A growing number of people are now choosing Restylane Lyft as a solution to enhance the health and appearance of their facial skin. Below are some basic details about the procedure.

What Is Restylane Lyft?

Restylane is an FDA-approved product used for enhancing the aesthetic appeal of facial skin without surgery. Restylane Lyft is a dermal filler within the Restylane family of products which is used to enhance the cheeks, reduce the nasolabial folds, and rejuvenate mid-facial skin. Restylane is administered in an injectable gel form and has been in use as a dermal filler for more than a decade around the world.

How Does It Work?

Restylane Lyft and all other products in the Restylane family use clear gel formulated from hyaluronic acid. The acid is designed to imitate the function of the hyaluronic acid that is naturally produced by your body.

Once the product is injected into the skin, it instantly adds volume and visibly corrects severe folds, wrinkles, and volume loss. As it instantly adds volume, it can be used to lift the cheeks, smooth out nasolabial folds, and erase other facial wrinkles.

Once you have discussed your goals with your healthcare professional, your face will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized. A local anesthetic or topical numbing cream may be used to make the injections more comfortable. The practitioner will then inject the Restylane with an ultra-fine needle into the target areas and gently massage the areas to help smooth out the product, ensuring even coverage.

The results of the procedure can last for up to 18 months. Your healthcare practitioner may ask you to undergo follow-up appointments every few months to help you maintain your new look.

Ideal Candidates

Restylane is a drug that can be used only on people who are above 21 years of age. If you are a healthy adult who has noticeable facial wrinkles, folds, or other imperfections, you may ask an expert about Restylane Lyft.

People who have blood disorders should avoid this procedure. If any drug causes your blood to thin out or prevents clotting, make sure you discuss this with medical experts. Pregnant women, nursing women, and people who have serious allergies against gram-positive bacteria are advised to avoid the procedure.

What Is the Recovery Period?

Once the Restylane Lyft treatment has been completed, ice may be used to prevent swelling. Patients are advised not to touch the treated area for at least six hours, after which they can gently wash their face with water and soap. Patients are also advised to avoid intense temperature differences and anti-inflammatory medications for about two weeks after treatment.
