The Restylane fillers have been available since 2003 and have proven to be reliable, predictable and affordable! The addition of Lidocaine in the filler makes its treatment easily tolerated for deep dermal filling that is needed to lift sagging cheeks, jowls and mid-faces. As well obtaining FDA approval for the cheek areas, the ease of injecting Restylane and its predicability , make it a great option for facial volumizing.
Restylane Lyft has been
approved for midface lifting this year and was previously known as Perlane,
which was used off-label in the cheek area for years. The other filler which
is used for the cheeks is Juvederm Voluma. Both Lyft and Voluma are composed of
hyaluronic acid and are fairly comparable products though Voluma has a larger particle size for volumizing. Alernatively,
Lyft now has the claim that it is the only filler that is FDA indicated for the
cheeks AND peri-oral folds such as the nasolabial folds.
#RestylaneLYFT is advantageous for deep dermal filling for mid-face volume loss and drooping jowls . It obtained an FDA approval for the filling cheeks. This product is familiar to injectors as it is not a new product -- previously known as Perlane -L! It is safe, easy to see immediate results and a great choice for dermal filling.
Restylane Lyft vs other cheek fillers
Restylane Lyft is NOT a new product. It is Perlane, repackaged. I used Perlane in the cheek region for years and liked it very much. In most cases I've switched to using Voluma there because it has a larger particle size and tends to plump more than I ever found Perlane did.

Lyft is a great filler for augmenting the cheeks. It has stood the test of time- it was previously known as Perlane. The other filler which is used extensively for the cheeks is Juvederm Voluma. Both Lyft and Voluma are composed of hyaluronic acid. It is possible that Voluma lasts longer, although this is not proven as there are no head to head studies comparing these two fillers. Lyft costs less than Voluma and can be a great value for the patient.
Thank you for your question. Restylane Lyft has been approved for midface lifting this year. It has previously been marketed under the brand Perlane which was used off-label in the cheek region for years. It now has the claim that it is the only filler out there that is FDA indicated for the cheeks and peri-oral folds such as the nasolabial folds.
