“This was my first experience with Botox/Dermal fillers and I was very nervous… They really took their time and the results were exactly what I was looking for. I would definitely recommend Reflections, especially if you’re going for a natural look.”

About Restylane Lyft

Lyft is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler used to replace or add volume. It’s part of the Restylane family of dermal fillers, so you sometimes hear it called “Restylane Lyft.” Lyft’s unique cross-linked hyaluronic acid matrix provides lifting and support in the areas where it is injected.
Lyft is most similar to Juvederm’s Voluma in feel and result. However, unlike Voluma which tends to swell and absorb more water in the days following injection, the results you see with Lyft do not tend to change very much over time.

What Does It Treat?

Cheek Lifting and Augmentation

As we age, our upper cheeks lose their normal fat volume and deflate or flatten out. This creates sagging skin that droops downward and forward, creating deep smile lines, or nasolabial folds, and jowls. We can use Lyft to restore the volume in the upper cheek and lift the skin back up to a more youthful position, which in turn eliminates jowls and lines below.

Upper Lip Support and Lip Lines

The white upper portion of the lip often loses support as we age, and deep lip lines form. Restoring the structure and volume in the upper lip helps smooth away those wrinkles and create a more attractive frame for the pink portion of the lips.

Hollowed Temples

When our temples lose volume as either a normal part of the aging process or due to low body fat percentage, the best treatment option is to replace the lost volume with a dermal filler or fat transfer. There are only a couple dermal fillers that work well for this particular treatment area. Lyft and Voluma are our favorites for this area because they are hyaluronic-acid-based, meaning they offer instant and long-lasting results. The specific cross-linking of Lyft makes it the right consistency to create a natural-looking result for the temples, while also offering added longevity over other hyaluronic acid fillers.

Non-Surgical Nose Job

Lyft’s thick, bouncy consistency makes it an ideal choice for non-surgical nose contouring. During this procedure, Lyft is injected into the nose to smooth out humps and bumps in the profile, correct v-tip deformity (most commonly caused by rhinoplasty complications), and/or widen the nose bridge.

Chin Augmentation

Often, a weak chin can be corrected with dermal filler injections, avoiding chin implant surgery. Lyft’s firm and bouncy consistency make it a natural match to the tissues of the chin, and it’s cross-linked structure make the results of this procedure long-lasting.

Skilled and Experienced Physician Injectors

In New Jersey, we’re lucky to have some of the strictest laws and guidelines surrounding who can inject dermal fillers. These rules restrict injection to physician’s assistants, ARNP’s, and physicians. Unfortunately, this doesn’t prevent an inexperienced provider from offering these injections. When it comes to safety and natural-looking results, experience and training matter most. Not only are our injectors all physicians, but they are cosmetics-only physicians, meaning they spend their entire workday every day doing cosmetic procedures, giving them the experience and skill to create the results you want in the safe environment you deserve.

Results

Restylane Lyft is unique among the hyaluronic acid dermal fillers in its longevity. You should expect your results to last 2 years or longer. Results from hyaluronic acid fillers have been proven to be longest-lasting with the smallest amount of filler needed at future treatments when “full correction” is achieved at the first injection. In simpler terms, this means that having the full recommended amount of dermal filler injected to completely achieve your goal at the first appointment will help you save money and time in the long run, as you should require less filler at subsequent re-treatments.

Lyft Filler Cost

We charge by the syringe for our dermal fillers. The number of syringes can vary from 1 to 5+, depending upon the area being treated and the individual. Typically, patients have 1-3 syringes of Restylane Lyft, at a cost of $850 for the first syringe and $750 for each additional syringe injected in the same setting. The number of syringes varies by patient based volume needed to correct or tweak the area being treated. You will be given an individualized price quote for Restylane Lyft, and other procedures recommended, during your free consultation with one of our physician injectors.
