Do you have prominent veins on the backs of your hands that make you look older than you feel? Do you have smile lines that won’t respond to anti-wrinkle creams? Do you have other cosmetic concerns due to a moderate or severe amount of volume loss? If so, you may be considered a good candidate for Restylane Lyft at MilfordMD Cosmetic Dermatology Surgery & Laser Center in Milford, PA. Read on to discover some of its most exciting benefits.
What Are the Benefits of Restylane Lyft?
This Treatment Is Versatile
One of the most incredible benefits of Restylane Lyft is its versatility. This injectable dermal filler is typically used to correct moderate-to-severe skin sagging in the midface, but it can do a lot more than that. In addition to lifting sagging cheek skin, this injectable filler can be used to augment the cheeks. This filler is also commonly used to increase the volume in the backs of the hands and erase smile lines.
Note that you need to discuss your cosmetic concerns with an aesthetic expert to verify that this treatment will be effective for you. Due to the incredible versatility of this filler, there is a very good chance that you will be considered a good candidate for this treatment if your cosmetic concerns are caused by volume loss. If your cosmetic concerns are caused by overactive muscles, you will need to get an injectable muscle relaxant treatment.
This Treatment Is Convenient
The convenience of this treatment is another very exciting benefit. You can generally expect to be in and out of your appointment in under an hour. In fact, most appointments can be completed in just 30 minutes. It is only in cases where you are getting multiple cosmetic treatments, like Restylane and Botox injections, that your treatment may take closer to an hour.
In addition to taking only minutes to administer this injectable, treatment is convenient because you can get several anti-aging treatments during one appointment. Sometimes, Lyft is injected in conjunction with other dermal filler formulas. In other cases, it is administered in conjunction with an injectable muscle relaxant. We will discuss all of your cosmetic concerns during your initial consultation and create a treatment plan that is convenient and effective for you.
This Treatment Is Comfortable
People also love getting Lyft injections to treat their cosmetic concerns because the treatment is completely painless. You’ll be able to feel the gel injected beneath the surface of your skin, but you shouldn’t anticipate any pain. If you have an aversion to needles, let us know during your initial consultation. We can apply a topical numbing agent to your skin prior to treatment, but this may add around 10 to 15 minutes to your appointment time.
This Treatment Is Safe for Most Adults
Yet another incredible benefit of this treatment is that it is safe for most adults. You need to come in for an initial consultation to verify that this treatment will be safe and effective for you. However, you can generally expect to qualify if you are in relatively good health and neither breastfeeding nor pregnant. Medical conditions that will preclude you from treatment include viral infections, bacterial infections, and heart disease.
Note that you need to be able to follow all preparation and aftercare guidelines to qualify for this treatment. Adhering to all rules is extremely important for ensuring that this treatment is safe for you. We’ll discuss the preparation and aftercare guidelines more thoroughly in a minute. During your initial consultation, we will give you complete lists of instructions to follow before and after treatment.
This Treatment Provides Natural-Looking Results
One of the primary concerns about getting cosmetic treatments is that the results may not look natural. Fortunately, if you opt for Restylane Lyft injections, you don’t have to worry about your results looking unnatural. You’ll enjoy an immediate initial improvement in your appearance due to the volume increase provided by the gel administered to your areas of concern. However, it will be a couple of weeks before you see your final results if you only need one session.
The reason you’ll need to wait over a week to see your final results is that the final results are derived from your skin producing extra collagen and elastin in response to the treatment. Since your skin is ultimately responsible for your results, you can feel completely confident that your results will look natural. By the time your skin has produced a significant amount of extra collagen and elastin, the injected hyaluronic acid has been metabolized.
This Treatment Is Easy To Prepare for
Yet another incredible benefit of this treatment is that it is very easy to prepare for. Due to the non-invasive nature of this treatment, there will be no need for a general anesthetic. Therefore, you won’t need to fast for several hours prior to your anti-aging treatment session. You also don’t need to spend several weeks abstaining from nicotine and alcohol consumption, but you will need to avoid those substances for 24 hours prior to treatment.
Another important preparation step you’ll need to take is to prevent skin irritation prior to your treatment session. For instance, you will need to minimize UV exposure for two weeks prior to your treatment. You also will need to refrain from any cosmetic treatments that may irritate your skin before your treatment. Other preparation steps you will need to follow include not exercising vigorously prior to treatment and ensuring you are hydrated.
This Treatment Is Easy To Recover From
Surgery can be an effective anti-aging solution, but it’s not right for everyone. One of the reasons people prefer injectable dermal fillers over surgery is that the latter requires several days or weeks of intense recovery. On the other hand, there is no downtime required after Restylane injections. Similarly, recovery requirements after dermal filler injections are minimal.
One of the most important things to avoid after Restylane injections is excessive pressure. You’ll need to sleep on your back for a few days after your treatment session, and you should only apply makeup that is easy to remove. It is also important that you avoid excessive heat or moisture. Do your best to avoid sweating, and don’t take a hot bath or shower within 24 hours of your injection session. Once you’ve bathed, dry your treatment area very gently.
This Treatment Is Long-Lasting
Another incredible benefit of this treatment is that it provides long-lasting results. Numerous factors affect how long your results will last, but you can feel pretty confident that your results will last for six months to a year. To help your results last as long as possible, keep your skin moisturized.
