With a number of facial fillers on the market today and a number of fillers that have been used historically, we have seen great progress as these medical technologies and their applications develop over time. Restylane and Restylane Lyft® stand out among the most trusted, safe, and useful fillers today. Restylane Lyft® is one of the hyaluronic acid fillers distributed by Galderma, along with Restylane. We have found Restylane to be optimal for placement in under-eye hollows due to the thinness of the skin in this region, and we have also found that Restylane Lyft® is a stand out product for volume replacement in the cheeks, chin, and in areas that require deeper filler placement for the shaping of the features. Often these are highly complimentary fillers, with Restylane Lyft® restoring the deep fullness to the cheeks and provide a foundation for the volume that is associated with youth.
Restylane Lyft® is a thicker hyaluronic acid filler, which makes it ideal for the types of contouring described above. It is a product with proven utility and safety, and its application is also easy and convenient. Treatment with Restylane Lyft® can be as simple as an office visit with a qualified expert physician. Indeed, many individuals seeking advice from Dr. Steinsapir opt for treatment in the office at the time of the initial consultation. This treatment offers the benefit of longevity yet the convenience and flexibility. While you can enjoy your Restylane Lyft® results for a year or more, eventually they will wear off. This allows for treatment at convenient intervals and without the concerns often associated with surgery. We find that most individuals receiving Restylane Lyft® filler from Dr. Steinsapir are happy with their results and choose to maintain the aesthetic benefits achieved with periodic office visits.
In the past facial fillers like grafted fat, sculptra, and silicone oil have had their supporters and detractors. Today Restylane Lyft® is typically a better alternative to these permanent and semi-permanent options. With Sculptra, altering your treatment is far more challenging. A saline injection may have some utility in breaking up the filler, but often it’s insufficient, and you may even require excision to alter your results. Silicone filler can also be understood as a permanent filler, and over time you are more likely to have dissatisfactory outcomes that are more complicated to change. And while grafted fat is sometimes indicated, Restylane Lyft® is usually a more comfortable, minimally invasive, nonsurgical option. Surprisingly Restylane Lyft® has a longevity that is very competitive to grafted fat, which often seems to require repetitive treatments to maintain the effect.
Lumps and bumps created by the permanent fillers can require major surgery to address. Conversely, results from the filler Restylane Lyft® are easy to shape and change when needed. A treatment might hold a little too much volume and this can easily be modified in the office with an injection of the enzyme hyaluronidase. With a simple, comfortable office visit you can have your results shaped when necessary to achieve the best possible result. Restylane Lyft® results rival and in many cases, exceed what can be accomplished with surgery.
