As your skin loses hyaluronic acid, the natural fat that surrounds your cheeks begins to deteriorate, resulting in sagging skin, decreased volume and more prominent wrinkles.

Restylane® Lyft (formerly known as Perlane-L®) adds volume and restores contour to your cheeks, accentuates cheekbones and smooths wrinkles and lines for a more natural-looking appearance.

What is Restylane® Lyft and how does it work?

Restylane® Lyft contains larger hyaluronic acid particles than Restylane®, allowing it to address severe wrinkles and loss of volume. As such, Restylane® Lyft is the first and only FDA-approved filler that treats two areas of the face:

  • Precisely corrects and smooths moderate to severe lines, folds and wrinkles on the sides of the nose and mouth
  • Provides a subtle, natural-looking lift to visibly sagging cheeks

What can I expect from Restylane® Lyft treatment?

After discussing your aesthetic goals and treatment expectations with you, your Water’s Edge Dermatology practitioner injects Restylane® Lyft below the skin into the treatment areas using an ultra-fine needle. The injection also contains lidocaine to reduce any discomfort you may feel. The procedure only takes 10-20 minutes and requires little to no downtime, so you can go about your day as soon as you leave our office.

When will I see results and how long will they last?

You can see results immediately. Most patients see lasting results for up to 12 months in the cheeks and six months in facial wrinkles and folds with Restylane® Lyft.
