Restylane Lyft is a dermal filler used to treat wrinkles. Formerly known as Perlane, Restylane Lyft has technically been on the market since 2015. Both contain a plumping substance called hyaluronic acid (HA), but in different amounts.
Restylane Lyft is primarily used for adding lift to cheeks, smoothing smile lines, and adding volume to the backs of hands. Restylane Lyft consists of individual injections that contain hyaluronic acid, lidocaine, and water. The combination of HA and water creates a plumping effect, which adds volume beneath your skin upon injection. This helps to temporarily smooth out wrinkles in the target area. Future follow-up treatments are necessary to help maintain these effects.
The addition of lidocaine in Restylane Lyft helps to minimize any pain during the procedure. This can also help save time, as you won’t need to wait for a separate pain reliever to take effect before each treatment.
