Thank you for your interest in Restylane Lyft (formally known as Perlane®), a safe and effective cosmetic filler used to restore youthful contours of the face and smooth away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. With Restylane Lyft, you can achieve a natural looking “nonsurgical lift” of the lower face, jowls and mouth corners in less than 1 hour.
Like Restylane®, Restylane Lyft® is one of the world's most used, most studied dermal fillers, and has been safely used in over 70 countries and in more than 1.4 million treatments in the U.S.
Restylane Lyft® is a non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA). Hyaluronic acid normally occurs in the body to keep skin plump and hydrated, lubricate joints and shape the eyes. Unfortunately with age, sun exposure, stress and smoking, these youthful characteristics start to fade. Over time, the active ingredient in Restylane Lyft® naturally and gradually breaks down. Since Restylane Lyft® contains no animal products; a skin test is not required prior to treatment.
Restylane Lyft® offers immediate results. Using her delicate technique, Dr. Roberts will use a very fine needle under the skin in the area(s) to be treated. Some discomfort is associated with the injections; however, topical anesthetic and local nerve blocks are available upon request. Mild swelling, bruising and slight tenderness in the treated area(s) can last for 3-5 days. Treatment sessions take only 30 minutes on average.
Don't worry about the same expense next month, because Restylane Lyft® has long lasting effects which let you enjoy your new enhanced beauty for 6-9 months depending on the area treated.
Prior to treatment with Restylane Lyft®, Dr. Roberts recommends avoiding blood thinners (Motrin, Aspirin, Fish oil, Vitamin E etc.) for up to 14 days before the procedure to minimize the chance of bruising. (see our patient education section for a complete listing of blood thinners).
To minimize bruising and swelling, after Restylane Lyft®, Arnica tablets may be taken (4 tablets under the tongue 4 times a day) starting the week before treatment and continuing for 5-7 days after treatment.
For 1-2 days after Restylane Lyft®, avoid alcohol, severe exercise, hot tubs, extreme hot or cold temperatures, sunbathing, tanning, or rubbing the treated area.
