Delayed Gratification: Your Superpower to Success

A Safe Cosmetic Filler for Deeper Wrinkles

Over time, wrinkles make their way onto our face. Try as we may, it's hard to fight the way our expressions mold our face. For example, large nasolabial folds, which can be compounded by factors like smoking and chronic exposure to the sun, develop from smiling naturally over time. Short of becoming a robot and never expressing our feelings, there are few ways to fight this inherent problem.

Luckily, through scientific research and medical knowhow, we've found a treatment that can help fill in those lines and truly restore a youthful look to a tarnished area. The Restylane Lyft® treatment we have at our cosmetic center in the Phoenix area can help bring out that lost look, boosting your self-confidence every day.

This treatment - which takes only about an hour - is similar to Restylane® and typically lasts for over six months. If you think Restylane Lyft® might meet your needs, contact us in Sun City, Sun City West, and Wickenburg. Dr. Justo and his staff have many treatments at your disposal, so come for a consultation and discover which one is right for you.

What is Restylane Lyft®?

Just like Restylane®, Restylane Lyft® is mainly made up of hyaluronic acid, which is also known as hyaluronate and hyaluronan. This chemical substance is found naturally throughout the human body, working as a vital part of cartilage cells and during skin repair. Therefore it is considered a natural occurring substance that doesn't need an allergen test to be injected.

The main difference between Restylane Lyft® and Restylane® is that the particles within the product are bigger, so there's more hyaluronic acid. This makes it a better fit to fill in deeper lines than Restylane®. It still lasts the same amount of time as well, so that shouldn't be a factor when deciding between the two.

Areas of Treatment

  • Traditionally used to treat deeper folds around the mouth like the nasolabial fold
  • Enhances the lips
  • Helps contour cheeks, jaw line, and chin
  • Fills in hollows under the eyes
  • Smooths out wrinkles like crow's feet


If you're interested in Restylane Lyft®, you'll want to determine with Dr. Justo whether it's the best course of action to achieve your specific goals. In other words, you may come to discover you want a longer lasting solution than an injection can provide, and would prefer to opt for a a surgical option, such as a brow lift, instead. Either way, our compassionate Dr. Justo will work hard to improve your appearance in the most accurate way possible.

Once the decision to use Restylane Lyft® has been made, Dr. Justo will determine where the injections should go and how much will be necessary, and then inject the solution under the skin.

The hyaluronic acid, now filling in the tissue underneath the treated area of skin, will begin to draw water from surrounding tissue. This water creates volume where the injections are, filling in wrinkles and folds from beneath. Even though the injection procedure only lasts an hour, the results can last over six months and appear soon after the procedure is done.
