What is Restylane Lyft?
Restylane Lyft is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler treatment that can be used to restore volume in areas of the lower face. Hyaluronic acid is a complex sugar naturally found in your skin and is responsible for retaining moisture and suppleness. In a crystal-clear gel form, it can restore necessary support and volume under the skin which is commonly lost throughout the process of aging. With a unique cross-linked matrix, it provides superior feel and consistent results in areas where you need substantial volume with a deep injection.
Restylane Lyft Candidates
Patients who can benefit most from Lyft and other dermal filler treatments are those looking for effective facial rejuvenation without the need for downtime or incisions. Restylane Lyft works best in areas where you need greater support from a stronger filler, like the cheeks or chin. During a consultation, Dr. Diktaban can create the right treatment plan for you using our best injectable options, and you’ll discuss your health history and goals for dermal filler treatments. If your signs of aging are more substantial, then Dr. Diktaban may recommend a more invasive procedure for best results.
What Happens During Restylane Lyft Treatment?
Restylane Lyft can be administered during a quick injection session at our state-of-the-art Manhattan office. Each patient has a different level of tolerance, so we can supply a topical anesthetic. Once you’re comfortable, the product will be placed through a deep injection into areas like the cheeks for natural lift and volume. You’ll see results immediately, so once you’re satisfied, you can return home. Overall, the process can take as little as fifteen minutes.
Results and Recovery
You can expect to experience some minor swelling and redness at your injection sites in the day or so after treatment; however, this subsides quickly. It’s common to experience some minor discomfort, but this can be easily managed with over-the-counter painkillers or ice packs. You should avoid massaging or rubbing the injection site for a few days afterward. Dr. Diktaban will provide detailed instructions on what to avoid during your brief recovery period. Restylane Lyft can last for up to one year, after which you can opt for re-treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does Restylane Lyft hurt?
Dermal filler injections can be performed with the help of a topical anesthetic for your comfort. Additionally, Restylane Lyft is mixed with lidocaine, a common numbing agent also used in dentistry and ophthalmology. Together, these ease discomfort during the injection process, but you may still feel some pressure during the injections.
Will I have bruising?
Bruises are a common accompaniment to injection treatments, but they usually subside within a week or so. This means you should plan your treatment session accordingly if you have a big event coming up. In many cases, you can cover bruises with makeup if needed.
What's the difference between dermal fillers and Botox?
Fillers and Botox are two different types of injectable treatment. Dermal fillers have the goal of restoring volume under the skin with a thick gel while Botox prevents facial muscle movements by blocking chemical signals. Often, patients can benefit from a package of both dermal fillers and Botox for effective facial rejuvenation.
