What is Lyft?

Lyft is an injectable within the Restylane family of dermal fillers. This option uses hyaluronic acid injected deep underneath the skin to create a lift in the midface and restore volume to the cheeks. It can also be used to restore volume to the hands. Hyaluronic acid is a substance found naturally in the skin that is responsible for moisture retention, among other things. When injected as a crystal-clear gel underneath the skin, it can effectively create volume to smooth wrinkles and enhance the natural contours of the face.

Your Customized Lyft Consultation

Selecting the best injectable option for your aesthetic goals requires the help of an experienced injector because there are many injectables on the market. During your consultation with our team, you should ask any questions you may have about the procedure and describe how you hope your results will look. This will allow our team to create the best treatment plan for you and determine whether you may benefit more from skin or laser treatments. 

The Procedure

Our team begins injectable treatments with a topical anesthetic that will ensure you’re comfortable during your procedure. Lyft also contains lidocaine for added comfort during the injection and placement process. Our injectors then use a very small needle to carefully place the product through a series of small, precise injections deep under the skin. Depending on your intended results, you may require more product, but our team can give you the best idea of what to expect.

Recovery and Results

As with other injectable treatments, you can return to your normal schedule immediately after your procedure. You can expect some bruising or swelling at the injection site, but these usually subside within the day. Any discomfort can be managed with an ice pack. Lyft can last for up to 12 months, after which you can return for another treatment or discuss your treatment options with our team.
