Over time, age and environmental factors create deep lines and wrinkles on your face, making you look older. Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) is an injectable filler that erases deep facial lines, smoothes out wrinkles and enhances your facial contour. Emmett Plastic Surgery, led by Dr. Jennifer Emmett, board-certified by the American Board of Surgery, has helped Denver, Lone Tree, and Douglas County residents comfortably and safely reduce signs of aging and restore youthful volume to their faces with Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft).
What is Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft)?
Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) is an FDA-approved injectable dermal filler that is used to smooth areas near the lips, mouth, and cheeks that often develop deep lines due to years of smiling and other facial expressions. Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) contains hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring chemical in the skin that provides volume and elasticity by binding with water to keep skin cells moisturized. As we age, the amount of HA in our skin decreases. Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) helps replace lost HA, rejuvenating your skin by increasing volume and naturally filling out creases.
Benefits of Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft)
Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) is particularly beneficial in treating lack of volume in the cheeks and lip areas. Many people select Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) because it is injected deeper into the skin than other dermal fillers, reversing sagging cheeks and a hollow appearance. Other benefits of Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) include:
- Fills in deep lines and folds around the mouth and nose
- Creates a fuller, firmer, more radiant appearance
- Is able to treat more pronounced signs of aging
- Uses a naturally occurring ingredient
- Quick procedure with no downtime
- Produces results that can last up to a year
Is Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) Right for Me?
If you have severe wrinkles and require a deeper injection, Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) may be an ideal option. If you want to increase facial volume and add contour to your cheekbones, Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) could be the safe and effective procedure for you.
What Happens During a Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) Treatment?
Prior to treatment, you should avoid taking aspirin or other medications that thin your blood to prevent excessive bleeding and any other complications.
Dr. Emmett will inject Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) into the target areas using a fine-gauge needle. When possible, Dr. Emmett uses an intraoral injection technique where she goes through the mouth to reach targeted areas. The procedure only takes a few minutes and doesn’t require any downtime. A topical anesthetic can be applied prior to treatment if needed, but most patients do not find it necessary, as the procedure does not typically produce much discomfort.
What Can I Expect Following a Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) Injection?
Following treatment, you may experience minor swelling and redness that should subside within a few days. Over-the-counter medication and a cold compress can be used to alleviate any discomfort. You can expect to see positive results almost immediately after your first treatment.
How Much Does Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) Cost?
Costs will vary from patient to patient, depending on the volume of product necessary to treat target areas. Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) is generally considered an elective cosmetic treatment so many insurances will not cover the cost. Dr. Emmett offers financing through CareCredit®, Simmons Bank, and Prosper® Healthcare Lending. We also accept cash, personal checks, and credit cards.
