Restylane® Lyft in Boston, MA
As you age, you lose the roundness of your cheeks. The cherub-cheeked look of our youth tends to deflate with age, giving you an older appearance. There is a solution. Restylane® Lyft, formerly called Perlane® –L, can enhance your cheeks without you having to go through the rigors of cosmetic surgery. Led by board-certified internal medicine physician Dr. Rosy Sandhu, Neem Medical Spa, located in Somerville and Winchester, offers Restylane® Lyft to the residents of Greater Boston.
What is Restylane® Lyft?
Restylane® Lyft is a gel made of hyaluronic acid that is injected into the face to plump up wrinkles and restore lost volume. It can be injected directly into the cheeks, or the filler can be used to smooth out prominent smile lines. Restylane® Lyft can make the contours of your face look smooth and natural.
As part of the Restylane® family, Restylane® Lyft contains hyaluronic acid. It differs in that the gel particles found in Lyft are typically larger than those found in Restylane®. These larger particles allow areas that require thicker fill to hold their shape. More prominent wrinkles require a denser filler to plump out and disappear. Lyft serves to complement the results of Restylane®.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar that can be found in your body. It mimics the production of collagen in your body, keeping skin smooth, supple and wrinkle-free. It also works to delay the natural breakdown of skin enzymes in our bodies.
In accordance with their strict standards and like all Restylane® products, Restylane® Lyft, is not animal-based. It is free from animal proteins, preventing the spread of disease.
Restylane® Lyft vs. Botox®
Botox® is a drug used to relax the muscles found under the skin. These muscles make the skin contract, which brings wrinkles to the surface of the skin. Restylane® Lyft also smooths out wrinkles, but it through a process of plumping the skin with volume producing filler. It is possible to use both Restylane® Lyft and Botox® together in one treatment.
Who Is a Candidate for Restylane® Lyft?
If you have lost the facial roundness of your youth, you will make a perfect candidate for Restylane® Lyft. If you suffer from any type of bleeding disorders or if you are allergic to lidocaine, you should not use Restylane® Lyft.
Sagging skin and wrinkles occur as the natural fat in our cheeks begin to diminish through the process of aging. Men and women who desire a nonsurgical solution to fight the reduction of facial volume would benefit from trying Restylane® Lyft.
The Restylane® Lyft Treatment
During the procedure, Restylane® Lyft is injected into the deep layers of skin to fill in wrinkles by replacing volume that has disappeared through the loss of fat, bone loss or a slowdown in the body’s ability to produce collagen. Because it contains hyaluronic acid, it binds with water, using moisture to naturally retain facial volume. This extra volume, in turn, restores the youthful roundness to your cheeks, giving you a younger looking appearance.
Like other fillers in the Restylane® line of products, Restylane® Lyft is a quick procedure that many people find painless. It contains 0.3% of the anesthetic lidocaine, maximizing comfort at the injection site. The entire procedure can be completed in less than an hour, making it easy to find time in your busy schedule for treatment.
Recovery from Restylane® Lyft
Most patients report that they returned to work the day after the procedure, however, the complete recovery time on average is two weeks. During this time, you may feel slight tenderness and experience redness, bruising, or swelling at the injection site. Some patients report feeling itchy or experiencing headaches post-procedure.
Results typically last six to nine months, but 73% of patients say they have seen improvement up to 12 months after completing their treatment. Results will vary between individuals.
