As we age, many changes to our facial anatomy leads to wrinkles, sagging skin, and a frail appearance. Losing the structural support of collagen can cause deep wrinkles and skin laxity. And the shrinking of natural fat deposits in the cheeks take away a youthful, plump appearance.

This specific formulation of Restylane dermal filler was designed to add volume with just the right amount of hyaluronic acid to achieve subtle yet significant results.

What is Restylane Lyft?

Restylane Lyft is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is FDA-approved for injection into the cheeks and hands to restore volume in these areas. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that binds to water to add fullness to the skin. It can be injected using an ultrafine needle or blunt-tipped cannula to provide immediate benefits that last up to 12 months before needing another treatment.

What to Expect From a Restylane Lyft Appointment

During a Restylane Lyft appointment in Chicago, you’ll first be examined by a board-certified dermatologist who can examine your specific problem areas before recommending a treatment, which may or may not include Restylane injections. If so, you’ll then receive a few painless strategic injections throughout the cheeks or hands to add instant volume and help you look younger.

Although you’ll be able to leave immediately after the procedure, you should avoid strenuous activity for 24 hours and avoid touching or rubbing the treatment area too vigorously. Regular face washing is okay, but dry your skin by dabbing, not rubbing.

Side Effects of Restylane Lyft

While the risks of serious complications are rare, some dermal filler patients experience mild side effects after an injection. The most common side effects include slight bleeding at the injection site, redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising.
