Over time, natural fat begins to deteriorate, resulting in sagging skin, more prominent wrinkles and reduction of volume. Restylane Lyft with Lidocaine is for deep implantation into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds and for cheek augmentation and for the correction of age-related midface contour deficiencies.
Restylane Lyft Candidates
Restylane Lyft can be used to treat creases and wrinkles on the face, even those that are deep, and can add volume where it has been lost. This non-surgical HA filler is an option for men and women experiencing volume loss in the face who are hesitant to undergo a surgical procedure. Lidocaine, a local anesthetic, is used in the preparation of Restylane Lyft.
The therapy may not be appropriate for those who:
- Have a severe or anaphylactic reaction to lidocaine
- Exhibit hypersensitivity to proteins found in gram-positive bacteria
- Experience instability in blood clotting and coagulation
- Have sensitivity to amides, a category of local anesthetics that includes lidocaine
Restylane Lyft Consultation
At every stage of your Restylane Lyft treatment, our skilled team will be there to assist you. We start with a consultation to learn more about your situation and the reasons you’ve come to us.
Discuss the aesthetic issues you would like to have addressed. We’ll go through the advantages of Restylane Lyft and what to expect from your treatment after you’ve provided us with some basic information about your health. If you have had any prior injectable treatments, please tell us when they were performed and what they were for.
Restylane Lyft Preparation
In the time before your Restylane Lyft procedure, you shouldn’t take any blood-thinning medications that you can get over the counter. You will be discouraged from taking St. John’s wort, vitamin E, or fish oil. We will also ask you to wait a few days before waxing, bleaching, or using hair removal lotion on the region.
You will be instructed to stay away from any lotions that contain retinol, such as Tretinoin, Retin-A, and others in the same family, prior to your Restylane Lyft procedure. It’s recommended that you abstain from alcohol for at least 24 hours before any kind of medical procedure.
The treatment with Restylane Lyft is quite simple. Please arrive at our office free of makeup. As part of your treatment, we will use a very small needle to inject the product into the appropriate areas. After gently injecting the gel into the problem regions, we will massage the face to spread it around.
Between 15 and 20 minutes is the average time for the Restylane Lyft treatment procedure. However, if multiple locations need to be treated, your session length may be longer.
Restylane Lyft Aftercare and Results
Minor swelling, redness, and itching are common reactions to Restylane Lyft injections in the face and the backs of the hands. Use a cold compress to alleviate discomfort, and avoid scratching the injection site.
Your discomfort from the Restylane treatment should only last a few hours, and any swelling you experience should go down within a week or two at the latest. Using Restylane Lyft will result in instant, uniform plumping of the treated areas. Furthermore, the filler will have settled after about 4 weeks, and the benefits will be long-lasting.
Restylane Lyft’s anti-aging effects, including wrinkle smoothing and volume restoration, can last for up to a year for facial treatments and 6 months for hand treatments for both men and women.
