As we age, our bodies naturally lose healthy fat and muscle tissue that help us to look more vital and alive. Our skin loosens, and our structural elements – bones, tendons, blood vessels – become more prominent, causing a starker appearance. We may still be in very good health, but outwardly we begin looking frailer. Unfortunately, this can bring on a range of unwanted and unfair reactions, both from others and within ourselves, such as:
- Perceived weakness
- Presumption of being “past our prime”
- Feeling less attractive
- Inability to perform a job as effectively
Restylane® Lyft is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler product that helps women and men over 21 take years of life off of their skin. It is safe to use on your mid-face, lips, and the back of your hands to restore that more natural “looks like you” appearance.
WHAT IS “HYALURONIC ACID?”
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring compound commonly used in skin-care products. Your body produces hyaluronic acid to perform a wide range of functions, including providing volume, moisture, and softness to your skin. Skin care products such as Restylane Lyft containing hyaluronic acid have been shown to actually encourage the body to produce new collagen, extending the duration of treatments.
HOW DOES RESTYLANE LYFT WORK?
Delivered via an injection just below the skin (subcutaneously), Restylane Lyft is a gel that plumps body tissues as soon as they are injected. FDA-approved uses for Restylane Lyft are:
- Plumping lips
- Smoothing wrinkles, including so-called “smile lines”, chin creases, and “marionette lines”
- Softening the overall look of your face and hands
- Reinstating the natural contours of your face, eliminating hollow cheekbones
DOES RESTYLANE LYFT ONLY WORK ON THE MID-FACE, LIPS, AND BACK OF HANDS?
No, Restylane Lyft is only approved by the FDA for use in these areas. Total Body Fitness is committed to using all of our products safely and according to both the manufacturer’s recommendations and instructions as well as FDA approval guidelines and regulations.
We will use other FDA-approved products, often in combination with Restylane Lyft, to achieve the same result in other areas, such as Botox for eyebrows and wrinkles around the eyes (“crows’ feet”) and mouth. Best of all, when used appropriately and in combination with Restylane Lyft, the results achieve a more natural and youthful appearance without looking like you’ve had any work done!
The procedure is virtually painless. A topical anesthetic is applied to the area to be improved before injection, and ice is used after the procedure on the surface of the skin to prevent or reduce any minor discomfort. Restylane Lyft also contains a mild anesthetic in the gel to numb and calm the area from within. The result is a restored more natural look with minimal discomfort. Side effects noted on the product information sheet include swelling, tenderness, and itching. In our experience, if any side effects are experienced at all, these are typically mild and temporary.
RESTYLANE LYFT IS SAFE AND AFFORDABLE
Total Body unlimited is pleased to offer our customers this safe, affordable way to restore a more youthful look to their face and hands. Restylane Lyft achieves long-lasting results with less product because it is designed to yield less to compression than other products. Results have been shown to last as long as 18 months, making Restylane Lyft one of the most affordable skin rejuvenation treatments on the market today.
