Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft

Age and the damaging effects of the environment take an inevitable toll on our bodies and skin. Skin loses its elasticity, appears thin, and wrinkles develop over time. It’s no wonder that the pursuit of youth and vitality is as old as time itself. After all, why shouldn’t we look our best for as long as we can?

What are Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft

restylane_logo_clearRestylane® and Restylane® Lyft cosmetic dermal fillers are safe advancements in wrinkle management designed to help maintain a youthful appearance. These FDA approved dermal fillers are made in Sweden, a country known for its appreciation of natural beauty and health care. Used widely throughout the world, Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft treatments are available from board-certified plastic surgeon Paul LoVerme, MD at The LoVerme Center for Plastic Surgery in the Montclair area. Restylane® has been utilized in over 70 countries and in more than 1.4 million treatments in the U.S. FDA-approved in 2015, Restylane® Lyft is the newer cosmetic improvement option indicated for adding lift and fullness to the cheeks and mid-face.

Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft contain no animal proteins. Because they are not derived from animal sources, there is virtually no risk of allergic reaction. Therefore, no allergy testing is required before use. Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft are made of a non-animal based hyaluronic acid gel. In the human body, natural hyaluronic acid provides volume and fullness to the skin. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft has been modified slightly to last longer than the body’s hyaluronic acid.

These treatments are non-surgical. Instead, an ultrafine needle or canula is used to inject the dermal filler into the targeted area. Discomfort is minimal and the effects of the treatment are virtually instantaneous. Your refreshed, supple look should last about six months with Restylane® and up to a year or more with Restylane® Lyft. The patented stabilization technology helps maintain the cosmetic effect for those time periods. Typically, touch-up treatments are scheduled to maintain the desired aesthetic. Studies have shown that those who receive a touch-up treatment before their results dissipate enjoy a more naturally youthful effect.

Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft are safe, natural products that enliven wrinkled skin producing a fuller, more youthful countenance.
