restylane lyft dermal fillers in Maple Grove, MN

Restylane Lyft® Dermal Filler

Restylane® is a  revolutionary solution to wrinkles and thin lips. It gently smoothes away fine  lines around the lips and mouth and on the forehead, leaving no scars at the  injection sites. Restylane® is completely biodegradable and contains no animal  proteins, so it is natural and considered extremely safe. Restylane® is  primarily used for lip definition and enhancement (especially to prevent  lipstick “bleeding”) and wrinkle correction. It is particularly  effective in filling fine, superficial lines in the chin and cheeks and for  shaping facial contours and for lip augmentation. Performed in 30-60 minute sessions at our Maple Grove skin care center, Restylane® treatments are long lasting and can be repeated as  necessary, typically every six to 12 months. If you have questions about  Restylane®, we are always available to answer your questions.

Dermal Filler

Improve the contour of your facial skin with this exciting new dermal filler.  The hyaluronic acid in Lyft can be used to improve the contour of facial  skin and to reduce wrinkles, folds, uplift cheeks, scars and other facial skin depressions.

Now FDA-approved in the United States,  Lyft is a “mid-dermal” hyaluronic acid filler product. As a sister product to Restylane, Lyft is designed for more  pronounced facial folds and wrinkles. It has been used to soften wrinkles and  facial folds of patients around the world. It is also a popular filler for lip  augmentation, facial depressions and facial scarring.
The hyaluronic acid in Lyft supplements the body’s  natural supply, which becomes depleted with age. This filler is biodegradable  so its effects are not permanent. The results of this filler treatment  tend to last 6 months to a year. This is much longer than the typical results  of collagen injections, which may only last 3 to 6 months.

Lyft may be right for you if you would like:

  • Wrinkle correction
  • Diminishing worry lines, smile lines, crow’s feet, marionette lines at corners of the mouth and smoker’s lines
  • Lip enhancement
  • Reducing the severity of nasolabial folds
  • Chin augmentation
  • Filling cheek depressions
  • Redefining lip border
  • Softening acne scars

Juvéderm™ Injectable Gel

As we age, our skin  changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as  wrinkles and folds form. But, with Juvéderm™ injectable gel, you don’t  have to just sit back and let it happen! Recently approved by the FDA, Juvéderm™ injectable gel is a “next-generation” dermal filler. The smooth consistency gel  helps to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles  and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial  folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your  mouth).

Juvéderm™ is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Your healthcare professional eases Juvéderm™ injectable gel under the skin to provide a smooth, natural  look and feel—so everyone will notice (but no one will know)!  In fact, studies  show superior results of Juvéderm™ compared to a collagen-based dermal filler. And, almost 90% of all study volunteers who were treated with both Juvéderm™ injectable gel and another dermal filler preferred Juvéderm™! In addition, Juvéderm™ injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for persons of color.
