What is Restylane Lyft®?

Restylane Lyft® is an exciting treatment option that is approved by the FDA to raise the midface for a youthful complexion. This safe and effective dermal filler is mainly comprised of hyaluronic acid, a sugar molecule naturally found in the body to bind water molecules together.

With the boosted amount of hyaluronic acid in the cheeks, Restylane Lyft® enhances the volume in the midface. With a boosted amount of volume in the skin, Restylane Lyft® can correct sagging cheeks and improve your facial contour.

Am I a good candidate for treatment with Restylane Lyft®?

Treatment with Restylane Lyft® may be suitable for you if you:

  • Are looking to correct the appearance of sagging cheeks as a result of aging
  • Are over the age of 21
  • Do not have an allergy to lidocaine or any other ingredient in the Restylane Lyft® solution
  • Do not have a history of critical allergies or allergic reactions
  • Are not pregnant at the time of treatment

What is the Restylane Lyft® treatment process like?

Since Restylane Lyft® is a non-surgical treatment, no extreme invasive measures will be necessary. Restylane Lyft® is administered into the skin through a very fine needle. This formula contains lidocaine, so patients who choose to be treated with this dermal filler can have a more comfortable treatment experience.

How long does treatment with Restylane Lyft® take?

The duration of your treatment session with Restylane Lyft® will depend on what you would like to accomplish through this procedure as well as the extent of the sagging skin in the treatment area. A single treatment session with Restylane Lyft® can typically take around 30 minutes.

Dear Patients,

It is with great pleasure that I announce the reopening of my practice for both surgical and non-surgical services on May 1, 2020. As per the governor Ducey's executive order on April 22, 2020, elective surgery has been allowed to proceed, with appropriate precautions taken by health care professionals to ensure continued vigilance against the spread of Covid-19.

Our office staff and the staff of Paradise Valley Cosmetic Surgery Center and Surgical Recovery Center have proactively taken necessary precautions to meet strict criterion for health providers according to the state of Arizona. These include necessary patient screening for Covid-19, strict protocols for cleaning offices and treatment rooms, adequate PPE, and continued social distancing. As before, waiting areas will have minimal capacity, and friends and family members should not accompany one into offices or treatment areas.

With great anticipation we welcome you back to the practice, and wish you all continued health and safety.
