Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft are long-lasting cosmetic fillers that provides dramatic results for improving the appearance of facial lines, wrinkles and folds. This is a non-surgical solution to soften facial lines and wrinkles, restore volume and fullness to the skin, plump up lips, and fill in scars. The cosmetic results are visible immediately.
How are Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft different from Collagen?
Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft have been demonstrated in clinical trials to last much longer than the standard bovine collagen injection. The occurrence of an allergic reaction is extremely rare due to the product’s non-animal associated basis. Unlike injectable collagen filler that is made of bovine protein and can cause an allergic reaction in some patients, Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft are natural substances, hyaluronic acid, which is a sugar molecule already present naturally in the human body. The hyaluronic acid is similar to that found throughout your body, which gives volume and fullness to the skin. It is both biodegradable and compatible with human hyaluronic acid. Because of this compatibility it is not necessary for you to be tested for skin sensitivity.
Restylane® or Restylane® Lyft can be injected in small amounts under your skin to fill creases, lines, wrinkles or folds. It is also injected around the lip area to create volume, resulting in a more youthful appearance. A skin test is not necessary prior to treatment, so treatment can be performed at any time. In order to optimize your comfort, the treatment area may be anesthetized with a topical cream or anesthetic block.
You can resume normal activities following treatment. The most commonly reported side effect has been redness and swelling at the injection site. These effects typically resolve within a few hours or, at most, a day or two.
Depending on many factors, such as your lifestyle, age and skin structure your results may last as long as six months to a year or more. When the effect of the treatment begins to diminish, you can replenish the area as needed.
