RESTYLANE Lyft® (previously known as PERLANE®)
Restylane® Lyft (also known as Perlane®) is an FDA-approved cosmetic dermal filler that replaces lost volume and restores youthful contours to the skin to smooth away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds1, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane is the world’s most used, most studied dermal filler, and has been used in over 70 countries and in more than 1.4 million treatments in the U.S.
If you’re considering treatment for your facial wrinkles and folds, we invite you to learn important facts about Restylane® Lyft, including how it provides structural support and lift to nasolabial folds.

The procedure is non-surgical, and its effects are virtually instantaneous, with long-lasting for about six to eight months2.
Restylane® Lyft is made of hyaluronic acid produced by a biotechnical process and contains no animal proteins. In the human body, natural hyaluronic acid provides volume and fullness to the skin. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane® Lyft has been modified slightly to last longer than the body’s hyaluronic acid. Restylane Lyft is hydrophilic or “water loving.” The hydrophilic nature of these hyaluronic acid molecules and their three dimensional structure allows them to bind many times their own weight in water. As hyaluronic acid begins to degrade, each molecule binds to more water which helps to maintain its volume for about six months.
