Restylane® Injectable Gel
U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved Restylane® injectable gel is a cosmetic "filler" that contains hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance that is found in the body. HA gives volume and elasticity to the skin, but as the body ages, HA levels decrease, resulting in loose skin and wrinkling. When injected, Restylane gel is designed to plump the skin beneath lines and wrinkles, smoothing them out and making them less noticeable.
The most common areas for Restylane treatment are the glabellar lines (which run between the eyebrows) and the nasolabial folds (which run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth). Restylane injectable gel is also FDA-approved, for those 21 and older, for enhancing the lips. According to to manufacturer Medicis, results can last for up to 6 months, at which point the hyaluronic acid is reabsorbed by the body
Benefits of Restylane Injectable Gel
When injected, Restylane gel plumps up glabellar lines and nasolabial folds, making skin appear younger and look smoother. When used for lip enhancement, it makes the lips fuller and gives them more definition.
Advantages of Restylane Injectable Gel
One significant advantage that Restylane injectable gel has over other facial fillers made with hyaluronic acid is that it contains nothing of animal origin. As a result, it does not require a potential user to undergo allergy testing, which can sometimes take weeks. Another advantage is that Restylane injections are performed in-office, usually by a dermatologist, in less than half an hour, and require little-to-no downtime for the patient.
Side Effects of Restylane Injectable Gel
The most common side effects of Restylane injectable gel are swelling, redness, pain, bruising and tenderness in and around the injection sites. They typically go away within a week. Although considered safe for most patients, Restylane injections carry a risk of infection, bleeding or allergic reaction.
A gradual loss of volume beneath the skin is natural with age. Unfortunately, this displacement of fat causes hollow cheeks, deep smile lines, and overly visible veins and bones on the back of the hands. With Restylane Lyft, you can restore youthful volume in the mid-face and the hands!
Restylane Lyft works in both the immediate and long-term: It boosts volume right away, and continues increasing plump moisture in the skin over time. Like certain other injectables, Lyft does this by way of hydrating hyaluronic acid, which also occurs naturally in your body.
Restylane Lyft Candidates
Injectables are minimally invasive. Most people who want them are perfectly good candidates. The first step is to make sure you have one or more of the issues that Restylane Lyft is well-suited to treating:
- Loss of fullness in the cheeks
- Loss of mid-face volume
- Loss of youthful volume in the hands
- Wrinkles and fine lines (especially nasolabial folds)
Just as important is making sure you aren’t allergic to any of the ingredients, and that you are generally in good overall health.
The Restylane Lyft Treatment Experience
Injections are relatively quick, painless, and convenient. Restylane Lyft contains lidocaine to numb the injected area. We will make sure you are comfortable and know what is happening at each step in the appointment.
The treatment session may last roughly 15 minutes to 1 hour, depending on how many areas are being treated and whether any other treatments are being performed in conjunction. The injections alone take only a few minutes.
How Long Does Restylane Lyft Last?
The longevity of results varies by treatment area. Most people enjoy beautiful results for up to 12 months in the cheeks, 6 months in the back of the hands, and 6 months in the smile lines and other facial folds.
The HA in Restylane Lyft begins to break down over time, which is why the results gradually fade. It’s easy to plan a maintenance schedule with your injector, to maintain the effect.
Cost, Recovery, and Results
When side effects occur, they are most often mild and short-lived. You may experience the following around the injection site:
Most people return to work and all normal activities the same day, or the following day.
The cost of the injectable varies by provider, by geographical region, and by treatment area/number of treatment areas. Ask about the cost for what you want to achieve, and whether any financing is available. Restylane Lyft is cosmetic and not covered by health insurance.
Most people notice a difference right away. The gel itself adds volume to sunken and volume-depleted areas. The results get better with time, as the HA in the product binds with moisture, creating plump, smooth, youthful skin.
Your Restylane Lyft Consultation
This injectable is a great option for rejuvenating your cheeks, face, and hands. Contact an experienced injectable provider to arrange your consultation. Most people interested in non-surgical rejuvenation are proper candidates for Restylane Lyft.

Perlane Injectable Gel
Both Perlane® injectable gel and Restylane® injectable gel are cosmetic "fillers" that contain hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance that is found in the body. HA gives volume and elasticity to the skin, but as the body ages, HA levels decrease, resulting in loose skin and wrinkling. When injected, both gels are designed to plump up the skin beneath lines and wrinkles, smoothing them out and making them less noticeable. The difference between the two is that Perlane gel, although similar in consistency to Restylane gel, contains larger particles, which are better at filling deeper depressions. Perlane injections are used for moderate-to-severe lines around the lips, nose, mouth and forehead.
Both Perlane gel and Restylane gel are manufactured by Medicis.
Benefits of Perlane Injectable Gel
When injected, Perlane gel plumps up deep nasolabial folds, and deep lines and wrinkles in the face, making skin appear younger and look smoother. According to Medicis, "in three clinical studies, 63 percent, 71 percent and 75 percent of patients maintained improvement for six months after just one Perlane treatment."
Unlike Restylane gel, Perlane gel is not recommended for lip enhancement.
Advantages of Perlane Injectable Gel
One significant advantage that Perlane injectable gel has over other facial fillers made with HA is that it contains nothing of animal origin. As a result, it does not require a potential user to undergo allergy testing, which can sometimes take weeks. Another advantage is that Perlane injections are performed in-office, usually by a dermatologist, in less than half an hour, and require little-to-no downtime for the patient.
Side Effects of Perlane Injectable Gel
The most common side effects of Perlane gel are swelling, redness, pain, bruising and tenderness in and around the injection sites; they typically go away within a week. Although considered safe for most patients, Perlane injections carry a risk of infection, bleeding or allergic reaction.
