Restylane Lyft is a “sister product” to Restylane. And, like Restylane, it is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to add fullness to your face and act like your body’s own naturally occurring hyaluronic acid.
What makes Restylane Lyft different is the average size of the particles and the depth of injection. On average, the gel particles are larger and denser than those in Restylane, which makes it appropriate for shaping facial contours and wrinkles that benefit from a deeper injection into the skin.
Restylane Lyft is used for deeper-planed injections where more subdermal support is required and in areas under the eye where surface injections might be noticeable. The denser gel is sometimes used as a “base” filler which is then topped with a less dense filler such as Restylane or Juvederm.
Patients with thicker skin, and men, who traditionally have thicker skin naturally, may prefer the ability of this filler to provide more substantial cushioning effect.
Dr. Fitzgerald will frequently combine various fillers to achieve the most natural appearance along with the most natural facial movement. Hyaluronic gels are good choices for fillers since they can be dissolved, carry the lowest risk for side effects and feel as natural as your own skin.
