What Is Restylane Lyft Used for?

Do you feel like you look older than you really are as a result of the loss of volume in your face? If so, you may be a good candidate for Restylane Lyft injections at Doctors Med Spa in Little Rock, AR. However, this injectable is not a one-size-fits-all anti-aging solution. To help you determine whether this injectable is right for you, we are taking a closer look at the benefits that can be derived from treatment. Read on to learn more.

What Is Restylane Lyft Used for?

Restylane Lyft is a revolutionary dermal filler that can be used to volumize both your face and the backs of your hands. Most people love this safe, effective injectable because others find them friendlier and more approachable once their wrinkles are erased.

However, being able to volumize the backs of your hands is also incredibly beneficial. Many people develop varicose veins as they age, and these disordered veins often appear on the backs of the hands. Volumizing the backs of the hands reduces the appearance of varicose veins and makes the hands look less bony. This can improve self-confidence significantly.

How Should I Prepare for My Treatment Session?

To prepare for your Lyft injections, you first must attend an initial consultation to find out whether this injectable is right for you. If it’s not, don’t worry. We offer other treatment options that will help you reach your goals. If we determine that you are a good fit for this treatment, we will give you a complete list of instructions to follow.

Wearing sunscreen diligently in the weeks leading up to your appointment is one of the most important preparation steps to follow. It is vital that there is no skin irritation at the time of your appointment. Another important preparation step to take is to ensure that your blood is not too thin at the time of your appointment. Therefore, you should not take NSAIDs, vitamin E supplements, fish oil supplements, or other drugs or supplements that affect blood viscosity.

How Long Will My Treatment Session Take?

Numerous factors affect how long your treatment session will take. Among these factors are the severity of your cosmetic concerns, the number of cosmetic concerns you have, and whether you will also need other cosmetic treatments during your session. We can give you a good idea of how long you can expect your session to take during your initial consultation. For now, we can say that sessions usually last between 15 and 60 minutes.

Will I Need to Take Time Off From Work To Recover?

No, you should not need to take time off from work to recover from your quick, painless injections. However, you should keep in mind that there are certain things you should avoid during the first 24 hours following your injections. For instance, it is important that you do not wear cosmetics in the treatment area, especially makeup that is hard to remove. Similarly, you will need to avoid applying too much pressure to the treatment area.

If you get facial injections, sleep on your back the first night following your treatment. Also, keep in mind that strenuous physical activity should be avoided for the first 24 hours following your injections. If you have a physically strenuous job, you may want to schedule your appointment for Friday afternoon so you don’t have to take a day off from work. Alternatively, you may need to modify your job duties for a day.

When Will I Be Able To See the Results of My Treatment?

You will be able to see an initial improvement in the volumization of your treated areas as soon as your injections are administered. This is due to the filler adding volume to the area. However, it can take several weeks before the final results of this treatment are realized. Individual results vary, but you shouldn’t be surprised if you aren’t fully satisfied with the results of your treatment for 14 days.

How Long Will the Results of My Treatment Last?

Again, individual results vary. However, you should expect your final results to last for roughly one full year.

Am I a Good Candidate for This Treatment?

If you are a relatively healthy adult, there is a solid chance that you will qualify for Restylane Lyft injections, but your good health is not a guarantee. For example, regardless of how healthy you are, you will not qualify for this treatment if you are pregnant, may be pregnant, or are breastfeeding. Also, you should be aware that even if you are free from chronic illnesses, if your skin is irritated at the time of your appointment or you have an infection, you won’t qualify.
