Restylane Lyft (Perlane) near Fort Lauderdale, FL

As you grow older, the aging process will eventually begin to take its toll on your skin, leading to a loss of collagen and elasticity. As your body produces less collagen, fine lines and wrinkles begin to form. These unwelcome changes can leave you looking older than you actually feel. Fortunately, there are a number of anti-aging advances that have been made recently. Perlane® is one of these breakthroughs. Perlane®, also known as Restylane® Lyft, is approved by the FDA as an injection to help correct diminished facial volume. Located in Coral Springs, Dr. David J. Levens is a board-certified plastic surgeon who serves residents of Fort Lauderdale and Broward County.

What is Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft)?

Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) is a recently developed formulation created by Galderma, the creators of the original Restylane®. Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) consists of a gel that can be injected into the skin to lift and add volume. Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) helps add volume to areas beneath the skin surface and immediately enhances the contours of the face. Because of its ability to increase skin volume, Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) helps smooth away wrinkles and lend support to your skin in filling out creases.

Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) works because it contains hyaluronic acid (HA) — a naturally occurring substance that attracts and holds a large amount of water. This effect helps plump and add volume to the skin, smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles.

Benefits of Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft)

Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) represents the sole dermal filler treatment approved for correcting lost cheek volume and nasolabial folds — the deep lines that run along each side of the nose and mouth. Lost cheek volume typically occurs due to the aging process since fat found beneath the skin surface is depleted, which strips the skin of its elasticity and volume.

Dr. Levens recommends Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) for the following:

  • Smoker’s lines
  • Worry lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Lip enhancement
  • Cheek and chin enhancement
  • Scars and other skin flaws

Good Candidates for Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) treatment?

Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) treatment may be right for you if you have significant facial wrinkles requiring a dermal filler that works at a deeper level. Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) is a very effective treatment for those who desire increased facial volume, increased cheek volume, and increased hydration of the skin for a smoother, more youthful appearance.

What Happens During Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) Treatment?

Dr. Levens will first examine the structure of your face to assess how much of the product will be required to effectively treat areas of concern on your face. He will then inject Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) into skin layers using a very fine needle, even smaller than those used for administering immunizations.

Dr. Levens injects Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) in areas with folds or wrinkles to help smooth and contour the area. You can expect your treatment to last from only 30 to 45 minutes. Afterward, you may immediately resume your daily activities and leave the office with very minimal discomfort. You should notice some immediate improvement in your skin.

Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) Treatment Recovery

You may use an ice compress on affected areas for 24 hours after your treatment to minimize swelling and bruising. As the hyaluronic acid absorbs water, you should notice a progressive improvement in your skin with results lasting up to one year.

Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) will smooth, fill, and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in areas where it is injected. You will notice greater plumpness in your cheeks and less eye bagginess. You should consider follow-up treatments periodically in order to maintain your improved skin.
