Restylane® Lyft

What is Restylane® Lyft?

Many patients want to have a satisfying aesthetic from head to toe. Making sure that each part of their body fits their desired look, including their hands. The hands are one of the most telling parts of the body when it comes to aging. This is due to volume loss in the hands that can cause a greater prominence of veins and tendons. Restylane® Lyft is a dermal filler that is injected into the hands in order to improve the look of wrinkles. Restylane® Lyft is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring hydrating substance that appears in the skin. With age, the amount of hyaluronic acid decreases causing a loss of shape and volume in the skin. At Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery Med Spa, Restylane® Lyft is one of the dermal fillers that we use in order to give your skin a smoother and fuller appearance. Restylane® Lyft was crafted specifically to treat the hands and our doctors are specially trained in the treatment process.

You can count on the excellent professional skills of Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery Medical Spa Restylane® Lyft specialists. We have treated numerous Restylane® Lyft clients and will be happy to answer any questions you may have. If you want to learn more about Restylane® Lyft treatments in Cape Girardeau, please make an appointment for a consultation today.

Is it Right For Me?

The loss of volume on the hands can cause signs of aging to be very prominent. If the appearance of wrinkles and veins on your hands is causing you to look older then Restylane® Lyft may be a good treatment option for you. By getting a Restylane® Lyft treatment your skin will look smooth, healthy, and young.

The treatment may come in two steps. The doctor may want to use laser treatment, such as the Laser Pico Genesis system used at Heartland. This laser helps treat hyperpigmentation caused by sun damage. Then they will use the Restylane® Lyft to add more volume. If you want smooth, beautiful skin that pairs with a natural look and feel then contact the doctors at Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery to see if this treatment is right for you.

How is Restylane® Lyft Administered?

Restylane® Lyft is a mixture of water, hyaluronic acid, and .3% lidocaine. The presence of lidocaine helps to reduce discomfort during the treatment. The team at Heartland may also use a topical numbing cream for increased comfort. This injection is administered by one of our experienced doctors at Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery Medical Spa using a fine-needle syringe and injecting the substance directly into the hand for treatment. The injections of Restylane® Lyft are quick, only taking a few minutes. Depending on the treatment needed, these injections may only take around fifteen minutes.  You may experience some side effects such as swelling, bruising, tenderness, headaches, or lump formation at the injection site. Your doctor will give you detailed aftercare instructions so as to help if any of these side effects occur.

What Can I Expect After Injections of Restylane® Lyft?

Restylane® Lyft is a quick-acting dermal filler. Immediately after the procedure is administered you will start to see a more volumized and smooth look on your hands. Restylane® Lyft is not a permanent solution, but the effects last about six months. The doctors at Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery will recommend follow-up appointments to keep your youthful look.

How Much do Restylane® Lyft Treatments Cost?

The cost of a Restylane® Lyft treatment varies from patient to patient, depending on their specific needs and concerns. The doctors at Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery will break down your payment in detail during the consultation appointment.

As a master injector, Dr. Humphrey is credentialed to deliver excellent results and ensure a patient’s health and safety when providing dermal fillers or Botox.
