Restylane® Lyft is now approved by the FDA for cheek augmentation and the correction of age-related midface contour deficiencies in patients over the age of 21. This is in addition to treating moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines).
Over time, the natural fat that surrounds the cheeks begins to deteriorate, resulting in sagging skin, more prominent wrinkles and a reduction of volume. Through nonsurgical injections, Restylane Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks and midface area, which can result in a more natural-looking, youthful appearance.
Restylane has a family of injectables:
Restylane-L® is for mid-to-deep injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Restylane® and Restylane-L® are also indicated for injection into the lips.
Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine is for deep implantation into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds and for cheek augmentation and for the correction of age-related midface contour deficiencies. Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine is also indicated for injection into the dorsal hand to correct volume loss.
Restylane® Silk is for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral wrinkles.
Restylane® Kysse is for lip augmentation and for correction of upper perioral wrinkles.
Restylane® Refyne is for mid-to-deep injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
Restylane® Defyne is for mid-to-deep injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe deep facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
Restylane® Contour is a newer product in Galderma’s line of hyaluronic fillers. It promises to achieve natural-looking facial contours and to smooth away wrinkles and fine lines on your cheeks restoring the natural arc.

ADMINISTERING Restylane Lyft
During your appointment, the areas of the injection sites will be marked and thoroughly cleaned prior to the treatment. With the possible comfort of local anesthesia and a numbing solution contained within Restylane® Lyft , the filler will be injected into the skin. After each injection, light pressure and a cooling ointment are applied to the area. Other than feeling a tingling sensation and some visible redness in the areas of the injections, there are usually no other side effects. Most patients are able to return to work with no downtime after their 15-30 minute Restylane® Lyft procedure
WHAT TO EXPECT
In a clinical trial, patients treated with Restylane Lyft reported improvement with the appearance of the midface area following treatments. As with any hyaluronic acid treatment, the most common side effects were bruising, redness, swelling, pain, headache, tenderness and itching. These events decreased in severity over time, and most were resolved after two weeks.
With over 28 million treatments worldwide and counting,1 the Restylane line of hyaluronic acid fillers is used to smooth away wrinkles and fine lines (Restylane& Restylane Lyft), create fuller and more accentuated lips (Restylane Silk), and add lift and volume to the cheeks (Restylane Lyft). All Restylane products work to enhance facial features and give long-lasting, yet non-permanent results.
Restylane Lyft FAQS
WILL THE INJECTION HURT?
The most common adverse events after initial treatment include bruising, redness, swelling, pain, headache, tenderness, and itching. Use at the site of skin sores, pimples, rashes, hives, cysts, or infection should be postponed until healing is complete. In these instances, product use could delay healing or make skin problems worse.
WHAT OTHER ANTI-AGING OPTIONS?
The Restylane line of products is designed to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid. Our NASHA® technology allows a unique particle size for each Restylane product,2 which means they offer tailored treatments for individual, natural-looking results.
WILL I LOOK 20 AGAIN?
A Restylane Lyft injection reduces fine lines and wrinkles for a softer appearance. While this product will not make you look 20 again, it will minimize the lines and wrinkles on the face, and provide a youthful glow that many patients desire. It is important to set realistic expectations. This will be discussed in detail during your consultation.
