Restylane Lyft is the newest dermal filler approved by the Food and Drug Administration for restoration of volume to the mid-face as well as softening of nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines. It is a hyaluronic acid (HA) gel filler specifically designed to be injected deep in order to provide long lasting, natural facial rejuvenation. It is thicker and firmer than other types of HA fillers, making it ideal for volume restoration and for deep lines and wrinkles such as nasolabial folds. Restylane Lyft can also be combined with other types of fillers such as Belotero and neuromodulators such as Botox for more comprehensive results.

Mid-face Lift Injection

Renowned board-certified dermatologist Dr. Melda Isaac, director of the acclaimed MI Skin Dermatology Center in Washington, DC, is an expert in performing mid-face lift injections with Restylane Lyft. She was one of the first dermatologists in the DC area to offer Restylane Lyft for her patients in need of volume and lift in the mid face, and is highly experienced at achieving the most natural, best looking results.

A Restylane Lyft procedure takes less than 30 minutes, and patients can return immediately to their work and everyday activities. Side effects can include temporary swelling, redness, and potential bruising at the injection site, although the chances of bruising can be minimized by avoiding any blood thinning medications or supplements, such as aspirin or fish oil, for at least a week prior to injection. Injector technique is also key to minimizing bruising.

Restylane Lyft is a great way to achieve facial rejuvenation without needing to undergo a full, complex surgical facelift. It is especially good for patients who are just beginning to see signs of aging, and who don’t necessarily want to deal with the pain and downtime associated with a surgical procedure.
