Over time, the natural fat that surrounds the cheeks begins to deteriorate, resulting in sagging skin, more prominent wrinkles and a reduction of volume. Restylane® Lyft, formerly known as Perlane-L®, is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to not only correct volume loss, but also treat wrinkles in the face. Restylane® Lyft is used in men and women today to add fullness to the cheeks and midface area, which results in a more natural-looking, youthful appearance.
Restylane® Lyft is the first and only FDA-approved filler indicated to provide lift to cheeks and add volume to correct and smooth smile lines (nasolabial folds).
A Restylane® Lyft procedure begins with the application of a topical Lidocaine-based cream to numb the areas. The cream is typically left on for ten to fifteen minutes. Once the area is numb, the area is then cleansed and prepped. This cosmetic procedure may require multiple injections and takes anywhere from thirty to forty minutes. As with any injectable procedure, there is a chance of bruising, and all patients are giving a cooling agent immediately following the procedure to decrease swelling. There may be some mild redness and swelling at the injection site, and we suggest a full week to see optimal results.
The cost of Restylane® Lyft is dependent on the number of syringes used at the time of the treatment. Your provider will discuss the suggested number of syringes for optimal results.

Restylane® Lyft History
Restylane injectable gel is the world’s most studied wrinkle filler with more than a decade of use. Restylane has been used in more than 15 million treatments in more than 65 countries worldwide. Products in the Restylane family also have well-defined safety profiles. Restylane® Lyft received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval to market in 2015 for cheek augmentation and the correction of age-related midface contour deficiencies in patients over the age of 21. Restylane® Lyft, formerly marketed as Perlane-L®, is an injectable gel used to increase volume and smooth wrinkles in the face. With this new indication, Restylane® Lyft is the first and only FDA approved filler indicated to provide fullness to the midface area (cheeks) and to correct and smooth the nasolabial folds (“smile lines”).

Can I get Restylane® Lyft done the same day as other injectable procedures?

Does the Restylane® Lyft procedure hurt?
- With the topical numbing applied before the procedure, patients describe Restylane® Lyft as a pinch with pressure. Lidocaine, a common local anesthetic, is mixed with the product to make the process more comfortable. Most patients may experience mild soreness up to 24 hours after the procedure.
What makes Restylane® Lyft different from Perlane®?
- Restylane® Lyft is formerly known as Perlane. It is the same product but is simply being rebranded by Galderma laboratories as Restylane Lyft to coincide with it’s FDA approval.
Does it really matter who does my Restylane® Lyft?
- Any authorized healthcare provider can technically use Restylane® Lyft, but it is highly recommended to use a provider with advanced techniques and knowledge in facial aesthetic/cosmetic procedures.
How much does Restylane® Lyft cost?
- Wilmington Dermatology Center determines cost based on how many syringes are used for the procedure. The number varies on the areas being treated and the patient’s specific needs. Providers can give you an estimated price prior to the procedure.
What happens if I need more correction or it didn’t quite work in an area?
- As a practice based on patient satisfaction and results, Wilmington Dermatology Center is happy to perform adjustments after your treatment. We are true believers that less is more, so there are many cases where we start more conservative and can add more to the treatment if necessary to give patients a more natural result.
Restylane® Lyft: Are you a Candidate?
Restylane® Lyft is a great non-surgical option to soften your smile lines and gift a lift to the cheek area that tends to lose volume over time. Men and women enjoy the benefits of this volume restoring filler, and we offer free consultations to determine if Restylane® Lyft, or another product, is best suited for your needs.

Patients should also disclose whether they are pregnant, plan to become pregnant or are breast-feeding.
