Restylane Lyft

Perlane
Restylane Lyft™ is the other member of the Restylane collection of products.  Like Restylane, Restylane Lyft restores 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).

What makes Restylane Lyft different is the average size of the particles and the depth of injection. On average, the gel particles in Restylane Lyft are larger than those in Restylane. Restylane Lyft is a good choice for wrinkles that benefit from a deeper injection into the skin. During your consultation, Dr. Krachman will decide which product is right for you.

MAJOR CREASES and WRINKLES

Restylane Lyft™ is used for smoothing and filling the larger creases.

Before treatment

Avoid using aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (such as ibuprofen), St John’s wort, or high doses of vitamin E supplements.  These agents may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site.

Talk with Dr. Krachman if you have previously suffered from facial cold sores. She may prescribe a medication to minimize recurrence.

After treatment

Use cold compresses to reduce swelling.

Avoid touching the treated area for the first six hours following treatment, so you do not accidentally injur your skin while the area is numb. After six hours, the area can be gently washed with soap and water.

Avoid exposure to intense heat (sun lamp or sun bathing).

Reduce the risk of facial cold sore recurrence that could be caused by needle punctures. Talk with Dr. Krachman about medications that may minimize an outbreak.

Avoid taking aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, St John’s wort, or high doses of vitamin E supplements for one week after treatment. These agents may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site.

After your treatment, you might have some swelling, redness, pain, bruising, and tenderness. This will normally last less than 7 days. Contact Dr. Krachman if you experience side effects beyond 14 days — and ask about follow-up appointments.
