Restylane® Lyft is the first hyaluronic acid-based filler approved by the FDA to be used in the hands as well as the face. Patients who are 21 years of age or older who have cosmetic concerns about their hands, or their cheeks and smile lines, would benefit from Restylane Lyft.
During treatment, Restylane Lyft is injected deep into the fat layers located beneath the surface of the skin for maximum results. It’s most commonly used on facial wrinkles and folds, the cheeks, and the back of the hands. Restylane Lyft adds lift and volume to the cheeks for up to 12 months, helps reverse the signs of volume loss on the back of the hands for up to 6 months, and smooths away facial wrinkles and folds for up to 6 months.
The most common side effects are mild and include bruising, redness, tenderness, and swelling. These symptoms typically only last a few days.
