During the natural aging process, the skin develops fine lines and wrinkles and loses its elasticity and volume. The face also experiences a loss of fat in certain areas, which creates a hollow look in the cheeks, around the mouth, and eyes. The skin may begin to thin out and sag, giving the face a sunken appearance. Hollowness in the cheeks is a natural sign of aging, however, it can be worsened by environmental factors like over-exposure to the sun and smoking.
In 2015, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved global healthcare company Galderma to market Restylane Lyft, an injectable gel designed to address cheek hollowness. The filler works to achieve mid-face rejuvenation to create noticeable and natural, long-lasting results.
Restylane Lyft is a type of dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid, which provides promising results because it’s highly compatible with the body. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in your body. High concentrations of the hyaluronic acid act as a network to transfer essential nutrients from the bloodstream to skin cells. When the gel is injected, it acts like an inflated cushion to target and support the facial structures and tissues that may have lost volume or elasticity.
During the non-invasive procedure, the filler is injected directly into the skin through fine needles. The entire treatment may take less than half an hour, depending on how many lines or areas of hollowness are being treated. The actual injection time only takes a few minutes per site, and results are seen instantaneously, providing a more youthful and natural looking appearance.
Restylane Lyft can also be used off label along the jawline to tighten up the jaw and rejuvenate sagging neck. It can also be used in the lip lines, an area where fine wrinkles and thinning may occur. Repeat injections provide cumulative results, however average patient results last between ten and eighteen months. To schedule a consultation, call Dr. Rokhsar’s Manhattan or Long Island office to receive one-on-one care.
