Restylane Lyft Washington DC
Restylane Lyft (formerly known as Perlane-L) is an injectable hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance in our skin that gradually decreases as we age. The consequence is a noted volume loss throughout the face. This lack of support leads to wrinkle formation and the “sagging” appearance that we associate with an aging face.
Restylane Lyft uses larger particles relative to the other products in the Restylane family(Restylane-L and Restylane Silk). This allows Dr. Somenek to treat areas that need more of a lift and underlying support such as the cheeks and the midface. The benefits of this treatment can last for up to a year.
Dr. Somenek uses the blunt tip microcannula technique, which avoids bruising and minimizes discomfort for his patients. This method allows for less injection sites, which ultimately reduces trauma to the skin. There is reduced downtime with the cannula method used to inject Restylane Lyft, so patients will notice immediate results with very little bruising.
Restylane Lyft is placed in the upper cheek region and Dr. Somenek works down the cheek into the midface region to restore lost volume. This creates a smooth transition from the cheek to the midface, maintaining a natural, rejuvenated appearance. Patients will look years younger immediately following treatment as volume is restored to areas of previous volume loss. The nasolabial folds, also known as “Smile Lines”, can be reduced by adding volume to the cheeks and midface. This treatment can be combined with other injectable fillers in other areas of the face to restore volume in all regions.
