Restylane® and Restylane LYFT® are popular dermal fillers here at Advanced Aesthetics of Las Vegas. These treatments are designed to create a revitalized, more youthful aesthetic. Restylane® and Restylane LYFT® can add volume to the skin and lips as well as fill the void in wrinkles, lines, creases, and folds. Both injectables are made of hyaluronic acid, a natural compound found in the human body, which usually makes allergy tests unnecessary. There is only a slight difference between Restylane® and Restylane LYFT®. The size of Restylane LYFT® molecules are generally larger and injections can be made deeper into the skin tissue, so it is intended for more severe wrinkles, while Restylane® can be effective at targeting mild to deep wrinkles.

How long is the procedure?
One treatment session can typically be completed during a lunch break, usually only requiring 15 to 20 minutes.

What should I expect after the treatment?
