As we age, our bodies stop producing the collagen necessary to keep our skin firm, plump, and elastic. This results in thinning, sagging skin that can create unflattering hollows in the cheeks and temples, as well as creating wrinkles, lines, and folds. Some of the most prominent of these wrinkles happen around the mouth, in what are called the nasolabial folds.
Nasolabial folds are the lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth, and can become noticeable later in life, making a person look older than they feel inside. Luckily, there is a brand new product that has just recently been FDA approved for volume restoration in the midface called Restylane Lyft. Restylane Lyft helps with midface rejuvenation by softening nasolabial folds and restoring lift and volume to hollow cheeks.
The midface is an area that tends to show age more quickly than other parts of the face or body. Gaunt, sagging cheeks and prominent lines and wrinkles make us look old and tired, even if we don’t feel that way. Expert board-certified dermatologist Dr. Isaac of MI Skin Dermatology Center in Washington, DC is one of the first to offer the FDA approved Restylane Lyft for midface rejuvenation. Restylane Lyft is a hyaluronic acid gel filler that has a thicker, firmer texture than other dermal fillers, such as Juvederm or Belotero, and is perfect for restoring volume and softening deep wrinkles. Another great thing about Restylane Lyft is that it requires little to no downtime, and has minimal side effects! Side effects may include some redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site that disappears after a few days to a week or so.
If you are suffering from volume loss and deep wrinkles, Restylane Lyft may be a good choice for you!
