Over time, the fat that surrounds our cheeks in our youth begins to diminish, leaving behind sagging skin, wrinkles, and a loss of volume in the mid face. Restylane Lyft can restore lost volume and smooth wrinkles and lines for a more youthful appearance.

What is Restylane Lyft?

Restylane Lyft is FDA-approved to augment the cheeks and correct loss of volume in the mid face in patients over the age of 21. It can also help to smooth the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Made up of hyaluronic acid, Restylane Lyft offers natural-looking results for up to 12 months, and sometimes longer.

What to Expect During Treatment

Before treatment, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the treatment areas to ensure a comfortable experience. Then, a fine needle will be used to inject Restylane Lyft into the treatment areas. Treatment takes about 15-20 minutes to complete and results are immediate.


Results are immediately visible after treatment. Some patient may experience temporary swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site. There is no downtime associated with Restylane Lyft injections, so you can return to everyday activities right away.
