What Is Restylane Lyft Used For?
As you get older, you may find that your cheeks begin to lose a significant amount of volume. This can make your entire face look hollow, and age your appearance significantly.
Restylane Lyft is an injectable dermal filler that’s designed to put fullness back into the cheeks, helping them to look rounder and younger. Lyft is one of several Restylane formulas. It provides a safe, long-lasting, and highly effective way of getting the results you’re looking for.
Everything You Need to Know About Wrinkles
It’s natural for your skin to change over time. It contains several chemicals that it’s able to produce a lot of when you’re young, including hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin. But as you get older it begins to produce less and less. This causes your skin to become looser, less elastic, and more prone to damage.
This loss of elasticity combined with repeated facial movements along with the natural effects of gravity is what causes your skin to start to sag and wrinkle. But just because this is an inevitable part of getting older, that doesn’t mean you have to deal with these changes forever.
What Exactly Is Restylane?
This filler’s main ingredient is hyaluronic acid. You can find hyaluronic acid in several different parts of your body, including your skin, eyes, and connective tissues. It’s one of your skin’s important chemicals, helping it to maintain hydration by attracting moisture molecules.
When it’s injected into your skin in the form of one of Restylane’s formulas, it helps to add fullness to the face. This smooths out wrinkling, folds, and sagging that you may be experiencing with age. It also helps your skin maintain its hydration for younger-looking, glowing skin, and it encourages your skin’s natural production of a protein called collagen.
What Else Can Restylane Target?
Your eyebrows are very mobile, which means that the area around them is very prone to wrinkling as your skin loses elasticity. For instance, you may find parallel lines in between your eyebrows, or glabellar lines forming.
You might also notice the lines across your forehead becoming permanent over time. You can fill in the area and smooth all of these lines out with Restylane.
Because the skin around your eyes is much more delicate than the rest of your face, it can be prone to wrinkling quickly. The lines stretching out from the corners of your eyes are called crow’s feet, and can dramatically age your appearance.
It’s also normal for volume loss in the area to cause dark circles or eyes to look hollow. Restylane’s original formula is perfect for targeting this area.
When you use Restylane Lyft to put fullness into your cheeks, you’ll be helping other areas of your face as well. Jowls form as you lose volume and gravity takes a stronger hold of your skin.
Lyft will put volume into your cheeks, effectively lifting and smoothing sagging skin and reducing or eliminating the appearance of jowls. It can also help to contour your jawline for an even more defined appearance.
Colloquially, these lines are referred to as laugh lines or smile lines because they form when you smile. Like any repeated facial movement, smiling a lot can make these lines permanent.
That doesn’t mean you should smile less! Restylane’s Refyne formula can make you look young again if you have mild wrinkling in this area. If your wrinkles are more severe, then the Defyne formula can better help you.
Just like all other parts of your face, your lips may begin to thin as you get older. You may also simply have naturally thin lips because of your genetics. If you’re not happy with the way your lips look, consider getting the Restylane Silk formula.
This formula will get your lips look plumper, fuller, and more youthful. You can also use it if you have asymmetrical lips and want to make them look more even.
Lipstick lines or smoker lines are the vertical lines that appear on your lips as they lost volume. They can make you look far older than you are, and they may even make you appear unhealthy.
When you use this filler to plump your lips, the space that the product takes up under your skin will help to smooth out these lines for healthy-looking lips.
Who Can Get This Treatment?
As long as you and your skin are in generally good health and you are looking for ways to look younger and feel more confident, this treatment is a great option for you.
Even if you don’t have wrinkles on your face, this filler can be a highly effective preventative measure. Changes to the skin begin to occur in a person’s late 20s and early 30s. If you are within this age range and want to keep your skin looking healthy, you can use this filler to stave off wrinkling and sagging.
How Do I Get Ready for Treatment?
Your practitioner will give you complete instructions on how to get ready for your appointment when you go for a consultation and book your appointment. There are a few simple instructions you’ll need to remember.
For the 24 to 48 hours before your injections, avoid drinking alcohol and smoking tobacco. You should also avoid taking medications and supplements like fish oil and Advil. This is all to prevent bruising around the injection sites.
What Will Happen at My Appointment?
When you visit us, you can trust that your treatment will be safe and effective. We will begin your appointment by thoroughly cleaning your skin before applying the injections. We may also apply some topical numbing cream to help your treatment stay as comfortable as possible.
When your skin is ready, we’ll start applying the injections. A very small needle will be used to help with precision and to ensure that the treatment process is entirely painless. You will get multiple strategic injections of small amounts of the product at a time to ensure you get exactly the results you want.
What Is Recovery Like?
Unlike invasive procedures like surgery, this treatment requires no downtime. As soon as your appointment is complete, you will be able to leave the clinic and get back to your everyday life.
There are just a few things to remember as your skin heals. Namely, continue not consuming alcohol or tobacco for the next 24 hours. Over the next couple of days, your skin will be much more sensitive, so stay out of direct sunlight and avoid anything that could cause excessive sweating.
Is It Safe?
Restylane treatments are extremely safe, no matter which formula you are getting. Because these injections are non-invasive, they don’t carry the same kinds of risks that options like surgeries carry.
The main ingredient, hyaluronic acid, is already present in your skin, making this treatment completely safe for almost anybody.
When Will I See Results?
This is a fast-acting dermal filler, and you will see a change in your appearance as soon as you leave the clinic. The filler takes up space under your skin right away, and you’ll see a noticeable change in the way you look.
Over the next week, full results will gradually become obvious.
How Long Does Treatment Last?
No filler can provide permanent results, but this one can certainly last you a very long time. Depending on what formula you are getting and where you are getting it, you can expect results to last anywhere between 6 to 18 months.
If you get Lyft in less mobile parts of your face, you can generally expect results to last longer than if you get it in other areas. You can also help results last longer if you follow your practitioner’s post-treatment instructions and take good care of your skin.
