Like Restylane®, Restylane Lyft® is a dermal filler designed to replace lost volume and restore youthful contours to the face; however, Restylane Lyft® is meant to be injected much deeper into the skin. The particles of gel in Restylane Lyft® are larger than those in Restylane® (since they contain more hyaluronic acid). Restylane Lyft® is often a better choice for people with particularly deep facial lines.
The hyaluronic acid found in Restylane Lyft® helps to smooth away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from the nose to the corners of the moth (often called “puppet lines”). Restylane Lyft®, which is FDA-approved, has been found to last at least six months.
