IS THE NEW NAME FOR PERLANE!
The Restylane family of products including Restylane®, Restylane® Silk, Restylane Lyft® – and now Restylane DEFYNE and Restylane REFYNE, can be used 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), elveated cheek bones, mannequin lines from the edges of the mouth downward etc… Although Restylane Lyft can be used for lip enhancement it is considered an “off-label treatment.”
See example below:
WHAT MAKES LYFT DIFFERENT FROM RESTYLANE?
Simply… What makes LYFT different than Restylane is LYFT (as well as Restylane DEFYNE) are used for deeper lines and wrinkle correction. Restylane & Restylane REFYNE are used for light to moderate lines and wrinkle correction.
FILLERS VS. BOTOX?
Dermal Fillers fill the line or crease with a choice of several different products. As a result, the line or crease seems to disappear or get “filled in.” Botox injections relax the muscle that cause the wrinkles to appear e.g. smile and you can see “crow’s feet” around the eyes.
Injectable wrinkle fillers can give you a more youthful look for a fraction of what a traditional face lift costs. Most will fill lines and wrinkles in less than 30 minutes with results that can last from four months to 18 months. Just one follow-up treatment at 4.5 or nine months later can extend results for up to 18 months from initial treatment in nasolabial folds.
Loss of “FACIAL VOLUME” is a major cause of an aged appearance. If you’ve lost a good deal of volume in the face, you might consider a FAT TRANSFER procedure which we can discuss with you.
WHICH PRODUCT SHOULD I GET?
The most common Fillers are Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, Voluma, Radiesse & Sculptra. The amounts available are 1ml, 1.5ml & 2ml’s. To determine which product and how much product is right for you a consultation is required.
MINIMIZING RISKS AND INCREASING GOOD OUTCOMES FOR ALL WRINKLE FILLERS
Wrinkle fillers are among the safest cosmetic procedures in use today. But there are also things you can do to help ensure your treatment is safe:
Don’t let price be your guide. If you are offered a treatment that costs far less than the standard treatment, it’s likely some compromises are being made, either in the skill of the provider or the quality of the product. Never risk making a bargain with your face.
Do not get injectable wrinkle fillers from sources outside a Medical office. Know what you are being injected with, and ask your provider if an FDA-approved wrinkle filler is being used and if it was purchased directly from the maker. There have been reports of everything from silicone to baby oil to industrial grade cement being used by unlicensed con-artist type people. If a provider won’t give you information about what will be used, don’t let that provider do the procedure.
