Restylane Lyft (formerly called “Perlane”)
Restylane Lyft is the first and only hyaluronic filler that is FDA-approved to provide your hands and face with a smoother, fuller appearance. Treatments can be administered to both the face and hands in the same appointment, leading to an all-over more youthful appearance. This non-surgical injection treats volume lost and wrinkles gained with age by restoring the skin’s natural fullness.
At Skin and Laser Dermatology Center, our extensive experience in meeting the unique needs of our patients means you can expect individualized results, designed for your face. To see how we can help you achieve your most youthful skin, call today to schedule a cosmetic consultation with Dr. Bajoghli.
Frequently Asked Questions
Restylane Lyft is unique in its versatility. It brings volume and youthful-appearing skin to almost any area of the face and even to the backs of the hands. Additionally, Restylane Lyft is able to treat severe folds in the laugh lines and around the eyes (crow’s feet), whereas other fillers are more appropriate for mild-to-moderate lines.
The revitalizing effects of Restylane Lyft typically last between 6 to 12 months, depending on the location and other factors relating to each individual patient. In a clinical study, 95% of patients saw an improvement two months after treatment and 73% saw an improvement 12 months after treatment.
Yes. Unlike other injectable treatments, the active ingredient in Restylane Lyft is naturally regenerated in the body, which extends the results of treatment. Additionally, Lyft treatments build on themselves so subsequent treatments show longer results. While many first-time patients enjoy results for six to nine months, second-time patients see results for an average of ten to twelve months!
Each Restylane Lyft injection is minimally invasive and performed with a fine-needle syringe that is injected into the target area in a manner of minutes. Restylane Lyft contains a local anesthetic, lidocaine, which helps to minimize any discomfort. This ensures that the patient does not have to wait for topical anesthesia to take effect unless desired.
Hyaluronic acid is a clear, naturally occuring substance in the body. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane is designed to act as the body’s own, allowing smooth movement of the skin as it adds fullness and definition. The acid also attracts water, helping to create the desired volume in cheeks and lips.
Swelling, bruising, and pain can occur after injection and can be relieved by applying cold compresses and taking Extra Strength Tylenol. Bruising can especially be minimized by avoiding aspirin and other blood thinners (Motrin/Advil/Ibuprofen, Aleve, etc.). Post-injection swelling (edema) can also occur in a small subset of individuals and resolves spontaneously. In some cases a medication can be given to treat the swelling. Recovery time is usually less than a day so Restylane will not interrupt your work, travel, or family plans. There are extremely rare reports of the product inadvertently placed in the surrounding blood vessels causing skin necrosis (loss of tissue). This rare complication can be managed with the use of a compound called hyaluronidase or Vitrase (an eraser for the hyaluronic acid) amongst other treatments.
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.
