Restylane Lyft (formerly called “Perlane”)
Frequently Asked Questions
The Restylane family of products includes Restylane, Restylane-L, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, and Restylane Defyne. These products can be used individually to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds or laugh lines); lipstick lines (the area just below the nose and above the upper lip); the corners of the mouth; and marionette lines (the area that extends downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline). Restylane and Restylane-L may also be used for lip enhancement.
Restylane injectable gel has been clinically proven to provide results that last up to 18 months in the laugh lines (nasolabial folds), with only one follow-up treatment at either 4.5 or nine months. Restylane Lyft injectable gel results may last up to six months after a single treatment. Schedule a consultation with our staff to develop a treatment plan that is right for you.
The Restylane family of products instantly adds volume to help restore youthful contours, so you’ll see results immediately following your treatment.
Due to the individual needs of each patient, it is important to discuss your full correction with our staff during your consultation. However, in a clinical study where patients received full correction for their nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth) during initial treatment in the RestylaneRegimen, the average volume was 2 to 3 mL per patient.
Products in the Restylane family should not be used by people with previous bad allergies, particularly to microorganisms known as gram-positive bacteria, or by people with serious allergies to drugs that have previously required in-hospital treatment. These products should not be used by people with bleeding disorders. Products should not be injected anywhere except the skin, just under the skin, or in the lips (Restylane and Restylane-L only). Restylane-L should not be used by anyone with a known allergy to lidocaine. Products should not be used during pregnancy, when breastfeeding, or in patients under 18 years for nasolabial folds and under 21 years for lips.
After treatment, you might have some swelling, redness, pain, bruising, or tenderness. These are typically mild in severity and normally last less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14 days in lips. Swelling may be more likely in patients under 36 years, and bruising may be more likely in patients over 35 years. Ice is recommended to reduce swelling and bruising, and will be provided during the treatment.
Skin & Laser Dermatology Center treats patients for all skin care concerns, including skin cancer surgery, cosmetic dermatology, sclerotherapy, laser peels, laser hair removal, hyperhidrosis, rosacea, and acne treatments.
Our Clients Say
My eyelid surgery results for the facial wrinkles look very natural. Very skilled dermatologic surgeon.
Dr. Bajoghli always has time for his patients, you never feel that he is rushing you and after you leave if you have any concerns he is very responsive to the point of giving out his cell phone number. I can’t say enough about him and his staff.
Nurse Rassmussen answers all of my questions, listens to my concerns, examines my skin, goes over my treatment protocol and gets me out the door quickly, but without feeling rushed, so that I can get on with the rest of my day. I have already recommended this practice to a couple of friends, and I will continue to do so with confidence.
I really appreciate the polite and professional service that Dr. Bajoghli’s practice provides in my dermatologic health. All of his staff make you feel welcome and are concerned for your care. Speaking as someone who neglected his skin care when I was young, I appreciate having a physician who is personally concerned for his patients.
