What is Restylane Lyft and what can it improve? How long do the results last?
Restylane Lyft is a cross-linked hyaluronic acid. It differs from say Restylane because it has a higher degree of cross-linking and is therefore thicker. Restylane Lyft is useful in most areas of the face that respond well for filling including the perioral area, jawline, cheeks, tear troughs and temples, although usually the tear troughs and lips are better treated with Restylane or one of the other hyaluronic acid fillers. The longevity depends on where it is injected and I believe that relates to the mobility of the area. So the tear trough and nose have great longevity, a year or longer, while the lips usually only last 6-9 months.
