Gravity is an inescapable force, lovelies. Your bodies fight against it but can only hold out for so long. Eventually its effects become noticeable via a sagging jawline, and deepening folds and wrinkles. These effects are further compounded as you suffer mid-face volume loss with age. We at Skin by Lovely offer a reprieve: Restylane Lyft, made by Galderma. This dermal filler can replenish lost volume and abate gravity’s hold.

Restylane Lyft in Portland and Lake Oswego, OR, at Skin by Lovely
There’s a reason Skin by Lovely is one of the fastest growing women owned businesses in Portland, Oregon.

As a result of this popularity, we opened a second Oregon location in nearby Lake Oswego, where we also provide educational programs for aspiring aesthetic injectable providers.
Restylane Lyft for Instant Cheek Enhancement and Lower Facelift
Hyaluronic acid is produced naturally in the human body; it hydrates and retains elasticity for your beautiful skin when you’re young. Yet, as you grow older, your body’s production decreases resulting in cheeks which may look sunken. This volume loss dominoes into sagging skin mid-face, and deeper folds and wrinkles. Restylane Lyft, created by Galderma, can help regain this loss and diminish the effects of age.
When Restylane Lyft, comprised of hyaluronic acid, is used to treat volume loss, it rejuvenates the skin and underlying tissue and gives the cheeks a noticeable lift. This lift affects sag, as well as wrinkles and folds, by tightening the skin and restoring your youthful allure.
Restylane Lyft for Hands
Our hands also succumb to aging. The same youthful fullness which slowly disappears from the face also degrades in the hands. Veins and metacarpals (bones in the hand that run from the wrist to the fingers) become more prominent, making hands appear older. With Restylane Lyft, the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler for hand rejuvenation, we can restore lost fullness, enhancing youthful plumpness to reduce the appearance of the veins and bones in the hands.
What to Expect at Skin by Lovely
We at Skin by Lovely take a holistic approach to help you achieve a youthful, rejuvenated look. Our Aesthetic Injection Specialists are highly qualified, and aspire to use their comprehensive knowledge towards providing you with results which are stunning and natural, yet subtle. Tantamount to excellent treatment is your comfort. Our facilities house the latest technology and amenities, but more importantly, they foster a positive environment.
At your appointment, you will meet with your Aesthetic Injection Specialist who will listen to, and address, your concerns and goals. Upon reviewing your medical record and conducting an examination, they will offer recommendations based on their detailed knowledge and experience, and what products best suited to help you achieve your desired look. It will be a joint effort to develop a treatment plan right for you.
Your Restylane Lyft Treatment
Your Aesthetic Injection Specialist will prepare your target areas with a gentle cleanse as you lounge comfortably in our treatment room. Ice is often applied to the skin for numbing, and Restylane Lyft contains 0.3% lidocaine to help improve your comfort during treatment. The procedure uses a very fine needle which provides better control and precision when administering the filler while reducing discomfort. Many patients describe feeling a series of pinches and nothing more, making the experience tolerable and worth it.
If other injectables, such as Restylane-L for under eyes or Dysport for lines in the upper face were also prescribed, they will be administered during this time as well. This ensures full facial rejuvenation before you walk out the door.
Downtime, Results, and Follow-Up Appointments
Downtime for Restylane Lyft is little to none. Once your treatment is complete, you are free to return to your usual daily activities. We do recommend refraining from direct sunlight and strenuous activities as these can diminish results. Many clients remark on improvements shortly after their procedure, with full results seen within a few days and lasting upwards of ten months. You may experience common side effects such as bruising, tenderness, minor swelling, or localized discomfort, but these generally resolve on their own within a week.
Restylane Lyft lasts a remarkable period, but is temporary as are all fillers; follow-up appointments will be needed to maintain your new look. During your consultation with your Aesthetic Injection Specialist, a program will be outlined with this in mind.
Restylane Lyft FAQs
We wish our clients to be well-informed and answer many questions during your personalized consultation. However, there are a few questions we are frequently asked.
Is this filler safe and FDA-approved?
Restylane Lyft was approved by the FDA in 2015 for moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles, along with age-related volume loss. Because the filler is composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally produced by the human body, it is considered safe for most adults with facial volume loss.
Who is a good candidate for this procedure? Who should not receive this treatment?
If you are an adult in good overall health looking for a non-surgical procedure to address age-related facial wrinkles or volume loss, you may be a good candidate for Restylane Lyft. You should not receive this treatment if you take blood thinners or have a health condition that can be negatively affected by this injectable. Treatment will be postponed if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or experiencing sores or a skin infection at the injection site.
Where can I learn more?
Information about Restylane Lyft can be found on their official website. You can also call us at Skin by Lovely or schedule a consultation for more specific information about this and other available injectables.
