Restylane Lyft contains hyaluronic acid, which is a natural polysaccharide (sugar molecule) that occurs in the body. As we age, the hyaluron in our body—which provides strength and hydration—decreases. This is why cheeks become more hollow and creases form around our nose.
When Restylane Lyft is injected into the skin, the hyaluronic acid attracts and binds to water molecules. Since each molecule can hold 1,000 times its weight in water, using Restylane can create plump, more youthful-looking cheeks.
Restylane is gradually degraded by the body’s own mechanism and disappears without any residue.
The particles used in Restylane Lyft are larger than in other Restylane products, so they are a very effective way to volumize the cheeks and smooth deep wrinkles. Some studies show that Restylane Lyft will increase the body’s collagen production, meaning that wrinkles may naturally improve as a result of the product.
