Restylane Lyft Lakeway Services (formerly known as Perlane)
Restylane Lyft is a hyaluronic acid injectable gel containing lidocaine (for patient comfort) that provides fullness to the cheek area and treats wrinkles on the face. Formerly known as Perlane, Lyft is similar to Restylane except that the particle size of hyaluronic acid is larger which equates to more plumping due to its higher affinity for water in the tissues and more “lift” due to its denser structure to provide support and hold shape.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance (a sugar molecule) in the body which provides cushioning, support and lubrication to our skin and joints. When injected into the skin it plumps due to the water content in the tissues and restores volume and fullness to the skin. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane Lyft is not from animal sources so skin testing is not required and the potential for allergic reactions is very low.
Treatment Areas for Restylane Lyft in Lakeway
Restylane Lyft is used to treat moderate to severe lines and wrinkles in the face. The most common areas for use are along the cheek bone for augmentation and age related volume loss and sagging, in the temples for hollowness, nasolabial folds (smile lines extending from the corners of your nose to the corners of your mouth), marionette lines (lines extending from the corners of the mouth down to the chin), in the corners of the mouth to turn them upward, under-eye hollows, and to augment or restore lip fullness. Restylane Lyft can also be used to augment and reshape areas of the face like the bridge of the nose, the chin due to recessiveness, along the jawline, and in the back of the hands or in earlobes to restore fullness.
