What is Restylane Lyft?
As we age and our faces lose volume, some of us begin to look for ways to regain more definition in our cheeks without surgery. Restylane Lyft, formerly known as Perlane-L®, is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face.
Restylane Lyft is the first and only FDA-approved filler indicated to provide lift to cheeks and add volume to correct and smooth smile lines (nasolabial folds).
Before & After
Treatment can make a real difference. Take a look at the images below of actual patients who have used Restylane Lyft to get results that cannot be achieved with over-the-counter cosmetic products.
How does Restylane Lyft work?
Over time, the natural fat that surrounds the cheeks begins to deteriorate, resulting in sagging skin, more prominent wrinkles and a reduction of volume. Through nonsurgical injections, Restylane Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks and midface area, which can result in a more natural-looking, youthful appearance.
In clinical trials, patients treated with Restylane Lyft reported improvement with the appearance of the midface area following treatments.

As with any hyaluronic acid treatment, the most common side effects were bruising, redness, swelling, pain, headache, tenderness and itching. These events decreased in severity over time, and most were resolved after two weeks.
