What Is Restylane Lyft Used for?

Dermal fillers are some of the best ways to get back your youthful appearance without needing to go through invasive procedures like surgeries. Restylane Lyft is an especially good filler for targeting a variety of areas on your face. Here’s how our Restylane treatments at Murphy Plastic Surgery in Englewood, CO can help you.

What Is Restylane Lyft Used for?


One of the major areas that this dermal filler can target is the cheek area. When you’re young, you’ll find that your cheeks are full, helping you appear much more youthful. But as you get older, you’ll naturally lose a lot of volume in this area.

To maintain your youthful appearance, you can use Restylane Lyft. This formula will put volume into your cheeks, making them look fuller and adding more definition to your cheekbones.

Nasolabial Folds

As your skin begins to lose elasticity, you may notice the appearance of nasolabial folds. These are the wrinkles that go from your nose toward your mouth. You may have also heard them called laugh lines or smile lines.

If you don’t like the way that these wrinkles make you look, then this dermal filler is a great option. Lyft will put fullness back into the area, taking up space beneath your skin and smoothing out these folds.


You lose volume all over your face as you get older. The temples are an often-overlooked area, but they will lose fullness just like the rest of your face, making you appear older.

You can use Lyft to put the volume back into the area and maintain a much more youthful appearance.


Another area where you are going to lose volume is your chin. When you lose volume here, this isn’t just going to make you look older. It will also make your chin look weaker.

Lyft is one of the best dermal fillers you can use in this area. When you get injections here, it will add volume and make your overall jawline look much more defined.


When people consider cosmetic treatments and dermal fillers, they often focus only on the face. But your face isn’t the only place where you’re going to see changes to the texture and fullness of your face. You’re also going to find it in areas like your hands.

If you’ve noticed that the backs of your hands are showing signs of aging, you can use this dermal filler to add more volume, taking up space under the skin and smoothing out lines and wrinkles for youthful-looking hands.

What Exactly Is Restylane Lyft?

Restylane is a collection of dermal fillers including Lyft. Lyft is designed to target the above areas to help patients look and feel more confident in their skin. Its main ingredient is hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally-occurring sugar that you can find in different areas of your face.

When the filler is injected into your skin, it provides fullness which helps to fill in areas that have lost volume and help them appear fuller and younger. When you do this, you also smooth out loose skin that’s lost its elasticity to help reduce the appearance of folds and wrinkles.

What Causes Changes to the Skin?

There are a variety of factors that contribute to skin aging concerns. In your youth, your skin contains higher amounts of chemicals like elastin and collagen, which are proteins your skin uses to stay elastic and maintain its overall structure. You also have higher levels of hyaluronic acid.

But the older you get, the fewer of these chemicals your body can produce. This means that your skin loses volume as well as elasticity, and gravity will begin to have a stronger effect on your skin. It also means that your skin won’t be able to “snap back” into place when the muscles underneath relax after eating, speaking, or making facial expressions.

What Are the Other Restylane Dermal Fillers?

Lyft can be used to target all the above areas of your face. But several other Restylane formulas can target your aging concerns as well. This includes Restylane, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne, and Restylane Silk.

These formulas can be used to target areas like your eyes which tend to show signs of aging sooner than other areas of the face as well as your lips. When you book a consultation with your practitioner, they will help you determine what combination of Restylane formulas you need to fit your specific needs.

All About Your Treatment

How to Prepare

Before you receive your injections, there are a few things you’ll need to do to prepare for your treatment. When you visit our clinic, we will give you full instructions on how you can prepare for your treatment. There are only a few basic things that you’ll need to do.

During the days leading up to your appointment, you should avoid consuming any alcohol and tobacco as well as consuming over-the-counter medications like Advil. These can thin your blood and make you more prone to bruising around the injection sites. You’ll also want to stop taking any supplements like fish oil for the same reason.

Getting Your Injections

When you choose our clinic to get your treatment, you can trust the process to be effective and safe. We’ll start by thoroughly cleaning the areas where you’re going to receive your injections. We’ll then mark the areas where we’ll be applying the needle.

With your skin ready, we can begin applying the product to the desired areas of your face. We will use multiple injections of small amounts of the product at a time. This helps you get the precise, accurate results that you want. The entire treatment process should take under an hour, and you can leave as soon as it’s done.

After Your Appointment

There is no downtime associated with this treatment, which is why so many patients and dermatologists love it. You can get back to your everyday life as soon as treatment is done as long as you remember to follow a few simple instructions over the next couple of days.

Because your skin is going to be much more sensitive during this time, you’ll need to avoid direct sunlight since your skin will burn much more easily. You should also avoid performing any strenuous activity or doing anything that could cause excessive sweating.


Will My Treatment Be Safe?

You don’t need to feel concerned about safety when you get this dermal filler. It’s been approved by the FDA to treat the above cosmetic concerns, and its main ingredient is already present in your skin.

As long as you get treatment from a qualified and licensed professional like the team at our clinic, you can count on your treatment being safe.

What Will My Results Look Like?

One of the best things about hyaluronic acid-based fillers like that one is that It is extremely easy to customize treatment and ensure that you get exactly the results you want. If you only want a subtle change to the way you look, your practitioner will make sure that your results reflect this.

On the other hand, if you’re looking for something more dramatic, the team at our clinic can help you with that too. Regardless of what you’re looking for, expect your results to look completely natural.

When Will I See Results?

If you’re looking for something that’s going to work quickly, you’re going to love this treatment. As soon as you leave your appointment, you will notice a change in the way your skin looks.

Over the following week, you will begin to see the full results of your treatment as the filler takes effect.

How Long Do Results Last?

There’s no dermal filler that can provide permanent results, but there are some that will last longer than others. This is one of them.

If you want to make sure you can enjoy your results for a long time, Lyft can help. Depending on where you get your injections, you can expect your results to last anywhere from 6 to 18 months. And, if you don’t like your results, you don’t need to wait for them to fade on their own. They can easily be dissolved with an enzyme that your practitioner can apply.
