Restylane® and Restylane Lyft® are hyaluronic acid injectable dermal fillers provided at Medi-Spa at Knoxville Dermatology Group, which can help you look like your younger self.
When we’re young, our faces have a certain amount of volume that maintains that youthful look. During the aging process, our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid, which results in a loss of some of that volume. The products of that loss are lines, wrinkles, and folds.
Hyaluronic acid is nourishing to the skin, and it also supports the skin’s structure. Since Restylane® and Restylane Lyft® are made up of hyaluronic acid, they effectively replace the lost volume, “filling” the lines, wrinkles, and folds.
Both Restylane® and Restylane Lyft® are smooth gels, but Restylane Lyft® particles are larger, making it more effective for improving severe wrinkles.
The skilled and experienced medical personnel at Medi-Spa at Knoxville Dermatology Group can determine which facial filler will provide you with the outcome you desire. Because of their in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy, they can create a natural-looking result by layering the injectables where they are needed.
Our facial filler experts will thoroughly evaluate your face and talk with you about the results you wish to achieve. We will then determine which injectables will work best for you. We may recommend that you have more than one type of injection or cosmetic filler, including Botox®, Juvéderm®, Sculptra®, or Radiesse®.
Both Restylane® and Restylane Lyft® injections include Lidocaine, which is a mild anesthetic to help numb the areas that will receive the injections. These products are also available without Lidocaine, however. Your entire treatment will include 15-20 minutes of numbing and 15 minutes for the injections.
You will see your results immediately, and you can return home or to work right away. Strenuous exercise is best avoided for a day or two, and if you are prone to swelling, you should elevate your head with a pillow during the first two nights. You can expect some minor swelling and itching, but this will last for only a few days. Mild bruising may last a week or longer.
The youthful effects of Restylane® and Restylane Lyft® treatments last 4 to 12 months. We often suggest a second treatment within 4 to 6 months, which can provide results for as long as 1½ years.
Restylane® and Restylane Lyft® injectables are plant-based and have been administered in 65 countries for more than a decade. Since hyaluronic acid is already produced in your body, no allergy tests are required before your injections.
