The appearance of deeper lines and wrinkles is common as New Yorkers age, largely due to the changes in the support structure of our skin. Collagen production slows down, and our skin suffers from the loss of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that’s largely responsible for maintaining moisture levels and creating fullness in the skin. As hyaluronic acid rates decline, skin falls into folds and wrinkles that weren’t there before. Treatment with Restylane Lyft can help restore hyaluronic acid levels, minimizing the appearance of your facial lines and helping your skin look young and firm again.
How Restylane Lyft Helps
Formerly known as Perlane®, it is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid similar to Restylane that is specifically formulated to add fullness to the skin, correcting moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. What makes Restylane Lyft different is the average size of the particles and the depth of the injection. Particles of Restylane Lyft are generally larger than Restylane®, making this the preferred choice for treating wrinkles that require a deeper injection into the skin. Restylane Lyft works particularly well for the nasolabial area and smile lines.
Like treatment with other dermal fillers, your initial appointment with Dr. Green at our New York practice will include a discussion of your appearance goals.
In addition to using Restylane Lyft, Dr. Green may also recommend additional treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or other nonsurgical procedures. Dr. Green will develop an individualized treatment plan for you, focusing on which combination of products will bring out the best in your skin.
At your appointment, you can expect the treatment itself to take just a few minutes. As with any hyaluronic acid filler, the side effects of Restylane Lyft are minimal, and are usually limited to redness and swelling at the injection site.
You should see your results almost immediately after your very first treatment session. Although the body will gradually absorb the hyaluronic acid over time, you can expect to enjoy your new look over the next several months.
