Similar to JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, Radiesse®, and BELOTERO BALANCE®, Restylane® Lyft (formerly known as Perlane®) is a long-lasting hyaluronic acid-based cosmetic filler FDA-approved to provide fullness to cheeks and reduce facial wrinkles. If you want to add volume in the cheeks or minimize the appearance of wrinkles and creases, Restylane® Lyft may be the treatment for you. Dr. Mark Pinsky, our plastic surgeon in West Palm Beach, often uses this dermal filler to restore diminished facial volume and smooth out wrinkles. Restylane® Lyft is composed of a specialized formula that is designed to be thicker than more traditional hyaluronic acid fillers, making it most effective for enhancing the cheeks, reducing deeper wrinkles and lines, and treating nasolabial folds (creases between the nose and mouth).

Why You Should Choose Dr. Pinsky for Restylane® Lyft Treatment
Restylane® Lyft injections can be administered by a variety of people, from estheticians to plastic surgeons and other medical professionals. However, the expertise and training of Dr. Pinsky and his certified physician assistants’ allow them to provide some of the best possible results with Restylane® Lyft injections. Their extensive knowledge of the facial structure helps them to make comprehensive evaluations and create results that look not only beautiful, but also natural.
How Does It Work?
Since Restylane® Lyft is composed of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the human body, allergy testing is typically unnecessary. A topical anesthetic can be applied to treatment sites to reduce discomfort during injection. The solution will then be injected directly into targeted areas on the face with a small needle, working to fill in areas of the skin to smooth out wrinkles and enhance volume. Patients should almost immediately experience a more rejuvenated, youthful appearance. The entire treatment can typically be completed within 30 minutes. Benefits can last up to 12 months or more, and follow-up treatments can enhance longevity of the results.
What About After My Injection?
Most patients can resume normal activities immediately after treatment; however, minimal redness, swelling, and bruising may occur around the treatment sites after the procedure. Any side effects generally resolve quickly.
