Facial aging is a process that begins in the 20s and continues throughout life due to physiological changes in the skin and underlying tissue.  Personal and environmental factors can accelerate these changes, giving an impression of aging caused by wrinkling and skin atrophy.  An innovative new treatment recently developed takes facial rejuvenation to a whole new level, not only treating wrinkles and overall skin deterioration but considered the only product with an indication for cheek lifts and nasolabial folds.

Restylane Lyft is an injectable filler that adds volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift the skin and soften wrinkles and folds.  Nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines, are quite common and significantly add to an aged appearance.  Restylane Lyft is injected directly into the skin in small, measured amounts by an ultrafine needle that allows minimal discomfort.  A Restylane Lyft procedure is simple and convenient and the results are practically instantaneous.  This procedure is so simple it can literally be performed during your lunch hour.  However, the results are dramatically younger-looking skin.

In addition to treating signs of aging like nasolabial folds, Restylane Lyft has recently been found to have major effects in cheek lifts.  Restylane Lyft is capable of creating well-defined cheeks, creating balance, improved facial profile, and an overall more youthful appearance.  Facial volume is often lost with age but improvement is possible.

How the Aging Process is Accelerated

There are a number of factors that accelerate the aging process, including:

  • Smoking
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Emotional stress
  • Diseases
  • Dramatic changes in weight
  • Exposure to extreme sun, cold temperatures, or wind

Restylane Lyft is made up of FDA-approved products made with naturally occurring substances.  Hyaluronic acid is responsible for keeping skin smooth and “plump” in your younger years, but over time it is broken down by the aging process.  Restylane Lyft contains a form of stabilized hyaluronic acid, as well as elastin, a protein found in the skin and tissue of the body capable of returning skin to its normal shape after a pull, and collagen, another protein that is the main structural component of the lower layer of the skin.  Collagen is responsible for the skin’s strength, but, like Hyaluronic acid and elastin, collagen stops being produced as rapidly in the skin over time.

Benefits of Restylane Lyft

Receiving a Restylane Lyft treatment is particularly beneficial to patients because it does not require surgery.  Surgeries typically leave patients swollen for weeks and take months for the final results to be revealed.  Restylane Lyft treatments can be done quickly and effectively and final results occur almost instantaneously.  Restylane Lyft also offers a lowered risk of complication and infection, versus facial implants.
