With the passage of time, our cheeks and mid-face area can begin to lose volume. This can result in an aged and tired appearance. With Restylane® Lyft, you can replenish this lost volume to restore a youthful and rejuvenated facial appearance.

What is Restylane® Lyft?
As we age, we can lose volume in the face which creates a hollow, aged appearance. Restylane® Lyft is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based filler used to soften the appearance of wrinkles and correct volume loss in the face. As one of the only FDA-approved fillers to add volume to the midface and correct smile lines, Restylane® Lyft is a trusted solution to create a more youthful appearance.
How Does Restylane® Lyft Work?
Restylane® Lyft is composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in our body to give our skin a plump, youthful appearance. This filler’s hyaluronic acid gel texture delays the breakdown of skin enzymes for a natural, smooth skin appearance.
During treatment, Restylane® Lyft will be injected into the designated treatment areas using a small needle. While most patients find injections tolerable, Restylane® Lyft is available with lidocaine to help ensure patient comfort.
