Restylane Lyft delivers dramatic improvements with no downtime.

Have you noticed your cheekbones aren't as defined as they used to be? Do you feel like your face is starting to look a bit hollow and saggy? 

At Dr. Lanna Aesthetics, we understand how losing facial volume can impact confidence and self-esteem. That's why we're excited to offer Restylane Lyft - an innovative dermal filler specifically designed to add lift and fullness to the cheeks and midface.

What Exactly is Restylane Lyft?

Restylane Lyft is an injectable hyaluronic acid filler, approved by the FDA for adding fullness to cheeks and smoothing facial wrinkles and folds. It’s composed of a biodegradable gel that replicates your skin’s naturally hydrating hyaluronic acid. 

When injected into the face, Restylane Lyft binds to water and plumps up the tissue beneath the skin. This adds subtle volume to restore a more youthful facial contour and shape.

Unlike permanent cheek implants, Restylane Lyft is not a permanent filler. Instead, the effects are temporary, lasting 6-12 months for most patients before being gradually absorbed by your body. 

This makes Restylane Lyft an appealing option if you’re looking for facial rejuvenation with an low-risk, reversible treatment.

Why Restylane Lyft is Perfect for Cheek Enhancement

As you age, the inevitable loss of volume in your face can leave your cheeks looking hollow and saggy. Restylane Lyft beautifully corrects this by replenishing the hyaluronic acid your skin has lost. The results are subtle yet striking:

Fuller, Rounder Cheeks

Restylane Lyft expertly augments your midface, delivering a nonsurgical contour and lift. Your cheeks will look supple, smooth and youthfully plump.

Enhanced Facial Symmetry

The filler adds strategic volume to naturally even out and balance your facial proportions.

Natural-Looking Outcomes

Made of hyaluronic acid like your own skin, Restylane Lyft provides up to 12 months of rejuvenation yet looks and feels entirely natural.

A 30-Minute, Walk-In/Walk-Out Treatment

The quick in-office procedure requires no downtime. You can immediately return to your activities with boosted confidence!

What Cheek Enhancement Results Can You Expect?

When injected expertly by an experienced provider like Dr. Lanna, Restylane Lyft can beautifully reshape and contour your midface. 

There are so many advantages to using Restylane Lyft for cheek rejuvenation:

  • Lifts and fills sunken cheeks: Restores plumpness and contour to hollow, flattened cheeks.
  • Defines the cheekbones: Brings back definition and structure for sculpted cheekbones.
  • Smooths lines and wrinkles: Fills in fine lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
  • Enhances facial harmony: Rebalances facial proportions and symmetries.
  • Complements other treatments: Works beautifully with other non-surgical treatments.
  • Subtle, natural-looking results: Looks smooth and seamless, not overdone.
  • Non-invasive procedure: No surgery or downtime required.
  • Long-lasting results: Effects last up to 2 years with optimal treatment.
  • Safe and effective: Proven to safely rejuvenate cheeks.
  • Quick treatment and recovery: Get treated and resume normal activities immediately.

The great thing about Restylane Lyft is results look very natural. Unlike silicone or permanent fillers, you won’t have an overdone or artificial look. Just a refreshed version of your natural beauty, turning back the clock 5-10 years.

What to Expect During Your Restylane Lyft Appointment

Restylane Lyft is injected directly into the cheeks during an in-office appointment. Dr. Lanna will consult with you to determine precisely where filler is needed to achieve a natural looking refresh.

She will carefully inject small amounts of the smooth Restylane Lyft gel into the chosen areas using an ultrafine needle. The product integrates with your facial tissues to create subtle lift and contour. Dr. Lanna will massage the area briefly to ensure even distribution of the filler.

The treatment takes about 30 minutes and you're free to get up and go about your day afterward! Be prepared for some temporary swelling, redness, and tenderness - these side effects usually subside within a few days. 

What is Recovery Like After Restylane Lyft?

The majority of patients have only minimal redness, swelling and tenderness after Restylane Lyft injections. We recommend avoiding strenuous exercise and alcohol for the first 24 hours. Use of a cold compress can help reduce swelling and discomfort.

Within 2-4 days, you can return to normal activities. While some mild bruising or unevenness may persist temporarily, this continues to refine over the next couple weeks. By two weeks post-treatment, you’ll see your beautiful new contours and restored volume.

Results last on average 6-12 months before being absorbed. Some patients choose maintenance appointments every 9-12 months to sustain their refreshed appearance. Others take a break between treatments.

Restylane Lyft vs Other Filler Options

With so many dermal fillers on the market, it can get confusing figuring out which is best for your unique needs and facial anatomy. Here’s a quick comparison of how Restylane Lyft stacks up against some other leading options:

  • Juvederm Voluma: Very similar hyaluronic acid filler also used for cheek augmentation. Restylane Lyft tends to feel slightly softer. Results last about the same (1-2 years).
  • Radiesse: Made of calcium hydroxyapatite rather than hyaluronic acid. May stimulate slight collagen production for longer-lasting results (up to 2 years). More expensive. Non-reversible.
  • Sculptra: Poly-L-Lactic acid stimulates collagen growth over time for very gradual volumizing of cheeks. Requires multiple treatments and results take 6+ months to fully see. Non-reversible.

While these can all add nice volume to the cheek area, Restylane Lyft strikes an excellent balance of natural-looking, yet long-lasting results with minimal side effects. 

Based on your unique facial rejuvenation objectives, Dr. Lanna will recommend the optimal filler to help you achieve the look you desire.
