Restylane® Lyft is a “mid-dermal” hyaluronic acid filler product. As a sister product to Restylane®, Restylane® Lyft is designed for more dramatic facial folds and wrinkles. It is formally known as Perlane®. Restylane® Lyft is injected into the deep dermis to superficial layer of the sub cutis to add volume to restore surface contour in facial wrinkles and folds.
Restylane® Lyft corrections maintain volume augmentation for about six months before natural product degradation begins to lessen the effects. Both Restylane® Lyft and Restylane® are composed of hyaluronic acid. The primary difference between Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft is that the gel particles in Restylane® Lyft are larger than those found in Restylane®. This gives Restylane® Lyft additional ability to lift and fill the areas of injection that require more volume.
Traditionally these areas are the nasolabial folds or the mid-face. Restylane® Lyft and Restylane® are perfect complements to one another. Also distinct from other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft are minimally cross-linked, making them similar to the natural hyaluronic acid found in the body.
