Restylane® Lyft

Restylane® Lyft is just one of several hyaluronic acid dermal fillers and non-surgical facial rejuvenation options we offer at KU Facial Plastic Surgery. FDA-approved for restoring volume to the cheeks and areas of the mid-face, Restylane® Lyft often provides a long-lasting treatment option for age-related facial volume loss.

Areas of the face that are commonly treated with Restylane® Lyft include:

  • Cheeks
  • Nasolabial folds (creases between the nose and mouth)
  • Smile lines
  • Temples
  • Hollows below the eyes

What is Restylane® Lyft?

Formerly known as Perlane-L®, Restylane® Lyft is a thick-consistency hyaluronic acid dermal filler customized for facial volume restoration. Compared to other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, most specifically the original Restylane®, Restylane® Lyft is composed of larger molecules to more effectively deliver instant, long-lasting volume that can actually “lift” the facial appearance through careful and strategic injection. The Restylane® Lyft formula also includes lidocaine, which provides added comfort during the application process.

Why Choose Restylane® Lyft?

After a thorough evaluation of the face and skin, our facial plastic surgeons can determine the appropriate course of treatment for achieving effective rejuvenation. As highly trained and experienced surgeons, Dr. Kriet and Dr. Humphrey have extensive knowledge about the wide array of dermal fillers available and can select the most suitable option for the patient’s unique needs. FDA-approved Restylane® Lyft is a reliable, high-quality product that can replace diminished facial volume and smooth deep creases and wrinkles. With proper and precise application, results of Restylane® Lyft can be remarkably natural-looking and long-lasting.

Treatment with Restylane® Lyft

Before administering Restylane® Lyft, Dr. Kriet or Dr. Humphrey will first indicate the areas to be treated and may place markings on the skin to provide a guide during injection. Using an ultra-fine needle, the doctor will then inject the treatment areas either in the deep or superficial dermis, depending on the degree of enhancement desired. Our facial plastic surgeons are highly skilled injectors and consistently deliver aesthetically pleasing results with Restylane® Lyft treatments.

Results of Restylane® Lyft

The results of treatment with Restylane® Lyft are often instantly visible and can last anywhere between six to twelve months with optimal application. After the initial injection session, Dr. Kriet or Dr. Humphrey may suggest a return visit for a touch-up to ensure smooth, even volume after the first application has had time to assimilate. Everyone’s skin is different, and understanding how the patient’s tissue responds to the product is vital to achieving a superior result. Optimally filling the treatment areas can provide results that look natural for a longer period of time.
