As people age, they lose fat beneath the skin of their faces and hands. This causes a loss of volume and the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin. If you have noticed that you have lost volume in your face or hands, it is possible for you to reverse these common signs of aging with injections of Restylane® Lyft. This dermal filler is FDA-approved to treat both your face and your hands and can provide you with long-lasting and natural-looking results.
What is Restylane® Lyft and how does it work?
Restylane® Lyft is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is injectable and is designed to help you to add volume to your mid-face area, cheeks, and hands. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar in your body that attracts water molecules to help add plumpness and volume. Restylane® Lyft is injected into areas in your face in which you have lost volume as well as in the back of your hands.
What can you expect during treatment with Restylane® Lyft?
Your appointment to receive treatment with Restylane® Lyft will be an in-office visit that usually lasts for 30 minutes or less. While some people choose to take the rest of the day off from work, many others simply go back to finish their day. You can expect to see immediate results that continue to improve over the next two weeks.
How long will the results last?
You will see improvement in the areas treated immediately after you have received your injections. Your results will continue to improve for up to two weeks after your injections. You can expect the results to last up to 12 months. When you go back to get touch-up injections, you will need less of the Restylane® Lyft than you received during your initial treatment.
Restylane® Lyft is a great choice for people who have lost volume in their mid-face region and in the backs of their hands because of aging. It is appropriate for adults who are at least 21 years old or older to use. If you would like to learn more about Restylane® Lyft and whether it is the right choice for you, you should schedule a consultation with your doctor or clinician.
