Q: What is the secret behind Restylane Lyft?
Hyaluronic acid or HA, is a naturally occurring substance found in most living organisms. It plays an important part in the human skin: providing it with elasticity, volume, and the ability to transfer nutrients between cells. As we age our body produces less hyaluronic acid contributing to a loss of facial volume. This results in wrinkles, folds, and a dehydrated look that can make you appear tired and older than your years. This volume loss in the lower face can be replaced with dermal fillers such as Restylane Lyft. The HA’s used in Restylane Lyft are modified to ensure a longer lasting result.
Q: Am I a candidate for Restylane Lyft?
Look at a photo of yourself from 5-10 years ago, does it seem to appear that you have lost volume in your face? As we age and our faces lose volume; this is noticeable by hollowing of the cheeks and deeper smile lines (nasolabial folds). This results in sagging skin, more prominent wrinkles and a reduction in volume. Restylane Lyft is a great way to regain more definition in our cheeks without surgery. This results in a more natural-looking, youthful appearance.
