People in the Baltimore area say that the more you smile in your life, the more wrinkles you will have. But, smiles are not the only cause of wrinkles. For some, stress, genetics, and sun damage can also create an undesired visage and decrease self-esteem.
Wrinkles can run deep into the skin creating facial folds. Loss of volume can also occur with stress, age, or time. Residents in the Baltimore area, looking to alter deep lines or decreased volume in the face, may turn to Restylane Lyft, a facial filler, for a solution.
Perlane or Restylane Lyft?
Perlane was rebranded as Restylane Lyft by Galderma in July of 2015, and then re-FDA approved to address smile lines and add volume in the cheeks. This hyaluronic acid gel was designed to have larger particles to add a lift and fill factor for areas of the face that needed more.
Now called Restylane Lyft it fits with the rest of the Restylane line of fillers to help patients prolong or prevent the need for a surgical procedure or just perk up their appearance with little downtime.
What is Restylane Lyft?
Dr. Birely uses Restylane Lyft as a form of liquid facelift. Restylane Lyft works immediately in the face, adding volume to depleted areas and tightening skin. As a clear gel, Restylane Lyft is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid, a natural volumizer. Like hyaluronic acid, Restylane Lyft stays beneath the skin for a period of time before eventually breaking down. Because it is a natural component in your body, no allergies are associated with the use of Restylane Lyft.
Am I a Good Candidate for Restylane Lyft?
Most people are good candidates for Restylane Lyft. The few exceptions include those with bad allergies, particularly to microorganisms known as gram-positive bacteria, or an allergy to lidocaine. Residents in the Baltimore area, looking to increase volume or minimize folds, may benefit from Restylane Lyft. If you are interested in the effects of Restylane Lyft, and live in the Lutherville area, you can call Dr. Birely to further determine your candidacy. During a consultation, he can assess your desires and if Restylane Lyft would offer you the best solution.
What You Can Expect during a Restylane Lyft Treatment
A Restylane Lyft treatment will last approximately 30 minutes. After your appointment, you may receive instructions about care and follow up appointments. Although there are few side effects associated with Restylane Lyft, Dr. Birely can inform you about their signs. These may include:
- Extreme swelling, caused by an allergic reaction
- Itching or extreme skin irritation
- Blistering, or rough patches of skin
- Purple to black coloration of the skin not associated with bruising
After your injection you may also be advised to schedule a follow up appointment if you desire additional treatment. In Lutherville, Restylane Lyft treatments do not require rest or a fixed recovery time. Depending on how they are feeling after treatment, some patients choose to take a day off. Other patients decide to continue their routine.
What Results Can I Expect from Restylane Lyft?
After treatment, you might have some swelling, redness, pain, bruising or tenderness. These are typically mild in severity and last less than 7 days. Once the swelling decreases, patients will experience smoother, tighter looking skin.
