Are your cheeks becoming bonier and more hollow as you age? Do you want to recreate the soft, plump cheeks and midface of your youth? Come by Dr. Frances J Segal and staff for Restylane Lyft Carlsbad (formerly Perlane-L). Get the lift you need!
Restylane Lyft is the only FDA-approved injectable that addresses cheeks and nasolabial folds (smile lines). It uses hyaluronic acid, an organic substance found naturally in the body. Its role is to retain moisture, and it normally gives the skin a hydrated look. When injected into the skin, hyaluronic acid appears to smooth out wrinkles and return volume to the face.** Babies are a great example of humans with appropriate retention in their skin. Their plump, round cheeks and bellies attest to the power of hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is injected into the dermis to the superficial subcutis. Over time, the addition of moisture reacts with skin to produce more moisture, naturally. This is why the results may last longer than over-the-counter, topical applications!
You must be over 21 in order to receive Restylane Lyft. In addition, you should not be pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning to do either. If you have a bleeding disorder, severe allergic reactions, or intolerance to the acid’s gram-positive proteins, you should not receive the injection. Contact us if you are unsure if you will qualify for the procedure.
We may use Lidocaine, a temporary and localized anesthetic, to minimize pain during injection. The injection should be relatively painless. In the rare case we inject into a blood vessel, you may experience more intense pain. In such a case, we will work quickly to prevent any long-standing complications.** Because this is a routine procedure, you should expect the operation to last a couple of minutes.
*Individual results may vary.
Restylane Lyft Carlsbad carries side effects. They may include, but are not limited to, redness, swelling, bruising, and itching. They are temporary.** Contact us if you are experiencing more severe symptoms or have questions about yours.
All results should appear within a few days. For injections into the smile lines, results may last up to six months. Midface injections may last six months extra!**
