- This results of Restylane® Lyft can last up to 18 months and touch-up appointments can be performed to maintain your result.

What is Restylane® Lyft?
As we age, the fat in the cheek area begins to deteriorate. As a consequence, the skin begins to sag, wrinkles become prominent, and you may notice considerable volume reduction in the mid-face area. Restylane® Lyft, which was formerly known as Perlane-L®, is a hyaluronic acid gel that is injected into the cheek area to treat the deep folds and wrinkles in this particular facial area. Through non-surgical injections, Restylane® Lyft provides fullness and volume for a more natural and youthful appearance.
Restylane® Lyft Procedure Overview
During your consultation at our Santa Monica or Beverly Hills location, your dermatologist will pinpoint key areas on your face to ascertain where to inject the hyaluronic acid gel. The dermal filler will need to be injected deep within the subcutis layers of the skin for maximum results. In most cases, your dermatologist will first inject Lidocaine to gently numb the area to ensure your comfort. There are minimum side effects but some patients do report a little tenderness, discoloration or distinct swollen areas, which typically dissipates within a few days.
