Having thinning, sunken cheeks is one of the most noticeable signs of aging. Not only that, sagging cheeks have a domino effect on the rest of the face. They can make the jowls look more prominent, create a drooping chin and enhance the appearance of wrinkles. It’s more important than ever to begin treatment on your sagging cheeks as soon as possible, and Restylane® Lyft is the perfect way to help.
Dermatology, Laser & Skin Center’s Cincinnati patients are encouraged to call our offices for a consultation to hear about how Restylane® Lyft can fill out your cheeks and refresh your look.
When you’re seeking to create more volume in your cheeks, it’s important to find a product that works naturally and doesn’t give the appearance of plastic surgery. Restylane® Lyft’s primary ingredient is hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural ingredient found in your skin which boosts the skin’s elasticity and plumpness. Working as a way to absorb water, HA fills up like a balloon and provides the skin with its full look.
As we age, our natural HA chains lose their ability to absorb this water, leaving the skin sunken and flat. By injecting more of the natural HA material into the cheeks, we can increase the absorption of water and give ourselves the cheeks of our past.
Restylane® Lyft prides itself on being one of the most absorbent dermal fillers on the market, meaning results can last up an entire year or longer, without any further treatment needed.
Restylane® Lyft is a non-invasive alternative to a facelift or other surgical procedure. Appointment times will vary depending on how many doses are being given, but most appointments last under an hour. Restylane® Lyft features no downtime, so you’ll be able to resume your daily activities immediately following your appointment.
Most patients are concerned about pain, but because of pain-killing Lidocaine, and our numbing creams, the pain is reduced to some pressure or a small pinprick. Once treatment is completed, you may see some swelling and bruising around the treatment area, and there may be some sensitivity as well. These side-effects are only temporary and should go away within a few days.
The Right Candidate
The best candidates for Restylane® Lyft are healthy adults who are looking for a natural, non-surgical way to add volume to their cheeks. During your consultation, you should mention any medications you’re currently taking, or if you’re a smoker. Restylane® Lyft isn’t a good option for people who are allergic to Lidocaine or have a blood-clotting disorder.
