Restylane Lyft

Correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face and hands.

Through nonsurgical injections, Restylane Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks, midface area, and the back of the hands to help complete your aesthetic look — for face and hands.

The lidocaine in Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine reduces pain and discomfort during and after injection. The effectiveness of the lidocaine was studied in a split-face clinical study of 60 patients. Each patient received Restylane® Lyft without Lidocaine on one side of the face and Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine on the other side of the face for the treatment of lines around the nose and mouth. Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine significantly reduced the pain of the injection. 

  • For the side of the face treated with Restylane® Lyft without Lidocaine, patients rated their pain as about 47 on a scale of 0 to 100 after injection. 
  • For the side of the face treated with Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine, patients rated their pain as about 15 on the same scale.

The graph below compares patients who were treated with Restylane Lyft with Lidocaine using a needle and patients who had no treatment, who showed a positive treatment response at 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 months, as assessed by blinded evaluators (e.g., physicians not aware of the patient treatment assignment).

It is important to understand that any procedure carries a risk of side effects. An injection of dermal filler can have two sources of skin reactions: from the injection itself and from the dermal filler. Based on the clinical trials, you may experience skin discoloration (bruising), swelling, redness, tenderness, pain, itching, or small bumps in the area where you are injected as well as a headache. If 6 (13) any of these side effects occur, the majority are mild to moderate reactions that disappear within a week or two. If any symptom lasts longer than 2 weeks, you should call your doctor. In a clinical study on cheek injections using a needle, 3 people out of 100 (3%) had the following delayed injection site reactions up to 138 days after treatment:

  • Redness 
  • Bruising 
  • Inflammation
  •  Bumps 
  • Pain 
  • Swelling 
  • Warmth 
  • Hardening
