At Dermatology Affiliates, our board-certified dermatologists use Lyft® and other cosmetic fillers and injectables on patients in Buckhead, Midtown, East Cobb and other areas around Atlanta and Marietta, GA, who want to diminish wrinkles and increase the elasticity in their facial skin resulting in a younger, healthier appearance.
What is Lyft®?
Perlane® is an injectable cosmetic filler that uses non-animal hyaluronic acid (HA) to help give your skin volume and elasticity and restore health and a youthful appearance to your skin. Lyft® works to fill in the wrinkles and lines around your eyes, nose, mouth, and across your forehead that are the result of aging and the subsequent loss of HA.
What are the Best Areas in Which to Inject Lyft®?
Lyft® increases volume in your face and diminishes the folds and wrinkles that generally become more visible as we age. It also aids in revitalizing cheek depressions and reduces the appearance of scars. Lyft® injections may help minimize:
- Marionette lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth
- Frown lines between the eyebrows
- Worry wrinkles across the forehead
- Crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes
- Acne scars
- Minor injury scars
Additionally, Lyft® maximizes volume in the upper cheek area.
How is Lyft® Different from Other Injectable Fillers?
Lyft® does not contain any animal byproducts, which means it will not transmit animal-borne diseases into your skin. Furthermore, Lyft® is unlikely to cause allergic reactions.
How Long Does It Take to Inject Lyft®?
While it depends on the extent of the Lyft® injections and where they are administered, each procedure usually lasts about 30 minutes.
Are Lyft® Injections Painful?
Although Lyft® contains lidocaine, which is a topical anesthetic that temporarily numbs each injection site, the process may cause some discomfort. At Dermatology Affiliates, we encourage our patients to use topical anesthesia for numbing prior to the procedure. It should be noted that pain relievers are not recommended for use before the procedure.
Are There Any Side Effects with Lyft®?
Minor pain, redness, swelling, and tenderness may occur at each Lyft® injection site, but they commonly subside within 48 hours of the procedure.
What is the Cost of Lyft®?
The cost of Lyft® depends on the extent of the injections which can be determined during a private consultation. We accept cash, checks, and most major credit cards as payment for your treatment.
