How Can Restylane Lyft Treatments Help?
When it comes to the world of aesthetic enhancement procedures, while there are certainly a number of different treatments out there to help patients to reduce the premature and unwanted signs of aging, few, if any, are anywhere near as effective and as popular, as injectable dermal fillers – especially those with a hyaluronic acid base, such as Restylane and its sibling treatments such as Restylane Defyne, Refyne, and Restylane Lyft. Similar to the others in the Restylane family of fillers, according to the top medical spa Delray Beach has to offer, Alluring Image, Restylane Lyft is used to treat wrinkles in adults. As it was formerly known as Perlane, Restylane Lyft has technically been on the market since 2015 – both injectables contain a plumping substance known as hyaluronic acid – however it is in far different amounts. While its primary use was to add a lift to the cheeks, and to alleviate smile lines, another relatively common use is to add volume to the backs of patient’s hands. While Restylane Lyft is certainly one of the most popular and most highly effective injectable dermal fillers, its important for patients to understand it far more, before choosing it over other, relatively similar injectables.
Restylane Lyft consists of individual injections containing a combination of hyaluronic acid, lidocaine, and water. The combination of HA andwater, will often create a lumping effect, which adds volume beneath the skin upon injection. According to the top medical spa Delray Beach has to offer, Alluring Image, this will help to temporarily smooth out wrinkles in the target area. While the treatment is known to be one of the longer lasting ones, future follow-up treatments are often necessary to help maintain your effects. Plus, the addition of lidocaine, helps to minimize pain issues during the procedure itself – in addition, this can also save time, as you will not have to wait for the effects of an oral pain reliever to take effect.
Many are often uneducated when it comes to certain specialty fillers, like Restylane Lyft, however, its important to understand they work similarly to other dermal fillers in a sense that the injection is performed with a fine-needle syringe in the target area. Due to the addition of lidocaine, these injections shouldn’t be painful.The injections take only a few minutes at a time. Depending how many injections you’re getting, you may only be in the office for 15 minutes at a time. More injections can take up to one hour. Restylane Lyft, like other types of Restylane have specific areas that they work best on. When it comes to Restylane Lyft, it is primarily used to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and add lift to the cheeks. Restylane Lyft is also sometimes used for the back of your hands as well – as this is one of the most common signs of aging around today.
While these are areas are relatively safe, and shouldn’t lead to a variety of risks, there are certainly a number of different side effects patients need to be careful about. These usually aren’t as drastic enough to keep you from your normal activities post-treatment, but they can take a few days to clear up. Some of the most common side effects include:
- Minor Pain Issues
Restylane Lyft may not be safe if you have a history of bleeding disorders. Inflammatory skin conditions, such as eczema and acne, may also be aggravated by this treatment. In addition, you shouldn’t use Restylane Lyft if you have allergies to lidocaine or if you smoke.Rarely, this treatment can cause pigmentation changes, severe swelling, and infection.You’ll likely start seeing the effects, shortly after the procedure. HA works fairly quickly to plump up the skin, though the full effects might not be able to be seen approximately one full week after the procedure is complete. And on average, according to the team at the top Medical Spa Delray Beach has to offer, Alluring Image, a Restylane Lyft procedure will likely last approximately 8 to 10 months, and sometimes ever upwards of a full year.
