Restylane® Lyft San Francisco
Performed at The Maas Clinic
Of the many injectable fillers offered at The Maas Clinic, Restylane® Lyft is an injectable cosmetic dermal filler that has been used to soften wrinkles and facial folds of patients across the world.
Restylane® Lyft is manufactured by Medicis the same company that manufacturers Restylane. Restylane® Lyft is primarily the same product as Restylane ® but Restylane® Lyft filler contains a larger concentration of hyaluronic acid. Because of this higher concentration of hyaluronic acid, Restylane® Lyft is usually used for larger folds, while Restylane® is better suited for smaller wrinkles or to maintain the results of a previous Restylane® Lyft injection.
Restylane® Lyft is made from non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA) gel. This means that Restylane® Lyft contains no animal products. Since hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the skin and other tissue, there is no need for a skin test when using Restylane® Lyft filler.
The hyaluronic acid in Restylane® Lyft injections supplements the body’s natural supply, which becomes depleted with age. Restylane® Lyft is biodegradable so its effects are not permanent. The results of a Restylane® Lyft filler treatment tend to last six months to a year. This is much longer than the typical results of collagen injections, which may only last three to six months.
The hyaluronic acid in Restylane® Lyft can be used to improve the contour of facial skin and to reduce wrinkles, folds, face scars, and other facial skin depressions.
