What Is Restylane Lyft Exactly?
Restylane Lyft is an injectable dermal filler that contains a combination of hyaluronic acid. When injected under the skin, Restylane Lyft adds volume to the area which helps to lift the skin and smooth wrinkles. The lidocaine present in Restylane Lyft injections makes the injection process as comfortable as possible.
The hyaluronic acid present in Restylane Lyft helps to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. Consequently, the combination of collagen and hyaluronic acid improves the structure of the skin and adds volume to areas affected by aging and wrinkles.
The water-attracting properties of Restylane Lyft work to bind water molecules and help to keep the skin retain moisture in order to maintain the volume provided.

Restylane Lyft is a relatively quick procedure. The exact duration depends on the number of injections being used and ranges from 15 minutes to an hour. The injection sites are marked, and a fine needle syringe is used to inject the product into the area.
