What is Restylane Lyft?
Restylane Lyft, initially approved by the FDA in 2007 under the name Perlane, is a mid-dermal hyaluronic acid filler. Restylane Lyft is similar to Restylane, but designed for more pronounced facial folds, cheeks, and mid face volume restoration. The firm gel is injected into the deep dermis to help restore volume and contour to create a more youthful appearance.
How is Restylane Lyft different than Restylane?
Restylane Lyft and Restylane are both composed of hyaluronic acid. The primary difference between Restylane Lyft and Restylane is that the hyaluronic acid gel particles in Restylane Lyft are larger than those found in Restylane. This gives Restylane Lyft the ability to lift and restore volume to the areas that require a denser formulation to contour. Restylane Lyft and Restylane are perfect complements to one another.
Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne are additional Restylane fillers that are longer lasting, more defining fillers.
