The New FDA-approved Way to Plump up Your Cheeks: Restylane Lyft


There is a new product available that some of you may be reading about called Restylane Lyft. This is a product in the Restylane family of fillers by Galderma. Restylane Lyft is specifically designed to treat mid-face volume loss.

If you are familiar with the Restylane family of products, you know Restylane and Restylane Silk are the thinner of the products, while Perlane was the thicker product. Each of these products is hyaluronic acid derived.

Restylane Lyft is the thicker product, Perlane renamed and used in the cheeks to give a lift. It improves the nasolabial folds in the middle by lifting the cheeks laterally.

Hyaluronic acid fillers are very safe and have been used for more than 10 years to treat lines on the face. Restylane Lyft is now FDA approved for placement in the cheeks to help some of the volume loss in this area and provide a lift to the face, decreasing the prominence of the nasolabial fold. It lasts about one year, and side effects of the injections usually include bruising and swelling, along with some other more rare side effects.

In the studies, people received between two and four syringes to achieve a lift. Each syringe costs between $500 and $700, depending on which thickness you select and how many syringes you purchase.

For a consultation regarding Restylane Lyft, or any other fillers please call 775-398–4600 and make an appointment with Dr. Jennifer Janiga.
