As we age and our faces lose volume, some of us begin to look for ways to regain more definition in our cheeks without surgery. Restylane Lyft, formerly known as Perlane-L®, is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face. Restylane Lyft is the first FDA-approved filler indicated to provide lift to cheeks and add volume to correct and smooth smile lines (nasolabial folds).

Restylane Lyft is perfect for patients who want a fast and effective solution for their volume loss in the cheeks or laugh lines. Restylane Lyft can add volume back to the mid face and enhance cheek contours, leading to a more youthful appearance.
A Restylane Lyft procedure takes less than half an hour, and is virtually painless. To minimize any discomfort, a topical numbing cream can be applied at the injection site.
There is no downtime required with Restylane Lyft and patients can feel free to resume their everyday activities immediately following the procedure.
Side effects are minor, and can include swelling or bruising at the injection site, which is easily managed with over-the-counter medications and makeup. Any swelling or bruising generally disappear on their own within a few days.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body that depletes with age. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane Lyft injections is biodegradable, which means results are not permanent. On average, results last 9 to 12 months with proper maintenance.
There is no difference between the two. Galderma, the company that owns theses fillers recently changed the name of Perlane to Restylane Lyft.
It is the use of a blunt tipped micro cannula to inject facial fillers. Since the micro cannula is blunt at the end, it causes less trauma, resulting in a more comfortable experience and less risk of a bruise for patients.
Absolutely! In order to make the experience convenient everyone, we commonly have a consultation and perform the injection on the same day. When scheduling your appointment, please let our front desk staff know that you are interested in having the injection the same day.
The cost depends on how many syringes are needed based on the treatment sites. The number of syringes injected can depend on the amount of volume loss in the face and the patient’s goals. It can range from 1 syringe to several. The procedure as well as the cost will be discussed with you at the time of your complimentary consult.
