Restylane Lyft for Lip Augmentation
Thank you for sharing your question. Restylane Lyft can be used to enhance the lips, however I prefer to use Restylane-L or Juvederm in my practice, as these fillers offer a softer aesthetic. For the cheeks, however, Restylane Lyft is an excellent filler that can certainly help redefine the cheekbones. For my average patient, I probably use at least 1 syringe per side to make a noticeable improvement. I recommend having your treatments performed with a microcannula to minimize bruising and pain. I recommend consulting with a board certified specialist who will be able to evaluate you in person and provide you with more specific recommendations. Best of luck with your treatment.
Restylane Lyft for the lips?
Restylane Lyft is not indicated for use in the lips. It is used to volumize the midface. It can be used to define the cheekbones, and provide lift to the midface which can in turn soften lines of the lower face such as marionette lines. Typical starting amounts of Restylane Lyft would be one syringe per side. Depending on the amount of volume loss, you may need more.
To be certain you receive appropriate treatment, see two or more experienced, licensed and board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment. I hope this helps.

Restylane Lyft versus other options to plump up the lips
Yes, Restylane Lyft can be used to plump the lips.
Lyft is a stiffer hyaluronic acid (HA) gel and provides greater projection and relatively less volume expansion. So, it depends on:
- which part of the lip you are interested in plumping,
- whether you need volume or projection and
- who is doing the injecting.
The lip has many different areas requiring different "fill":
- the wet vermillion. Use Restylane and / or Lyft depending on your need for volume or projection.
- the dry vermillion. This is where most patients want fill or volume and Restylane works well.
- lipstick line. A stiffer HA is required and great place for Lyft.
- lateral commissures. Lyft is better.
- smokers lines. A combination of Dysport to relax the muscle and Restylane Silk have provided the most improvement.
As you see, there are various ways to reduce lines around the mouth and lips. Each depends on the level of the wrinkle deformity, ie., epidermis, dermis, fat, muscle and skin color.
