Even with the inclusion of countless creams and serums into your daily routine, the aging process affects everyone at some point in their lives. While most expect their first wrinkle to appear on their forehead or next to their eyes, many are surprised when the creases appear on their hands instead. Luckily, innovative options like Restylane Lyft are helping patients turn back the literal hands of time on their appearance.
Why Do Hands Wrinkle First?
Think about it – daily wear combined with the side effects of aging can gradually chip away at your hands’ skin health and appearance. Combined with often subpar hand care and moisturization, your hands are truly exposed to the elements on a daily basis, leaving them susceptible to showing the signs of aging earlier than other parts of your body. As a result, patients may notice a change in the texture of their hands. These common signs of aging include thinning skin, wrinkles, and diminished collagen production, all of which cause the bones, tendons, and muscles of the hands to appear more prominent.
Lift with Restylane Lyft
Like other Restylane products, Lyft relies on hyaluronic acid in order to smooth wrinkles and add volume. The naturally-produced acid is considered the key to skin hydration, making skin appear healthy, full and well hydrated. While most dermal fillers rely on a more viscous formula of hyaluronic acid to add volume to lips and fine lines, Restylane Lyft is designed to be slightly thicker consistency. This more substantial formula uses heavier hyaluronic particles, allowing the injectable to provide long-lasting volume to larger areas, such as the cheeks and hands without discomfort during the procedure.
Why We Recommend Restylane
Choosing the right cosmetic treatment can be a challenge for many. Here’s why we love Lyft for hand rejuvenation:
Simple, Straight Forward Treatment
While self-improvement can certainly be an eye-opening and multi-faceted process, you shouldn’t have to go to extensive lengths just to rejuvenate your appearance. Hand rejuvenation with a dermal filler like Restylane Lyft takes the stress out of cosmetic treatment by providing results in just one session. Many of the patients who visit our Palm Springs often schedule Lyft appointments over their lunch break then head back to work right after.
Restylane Lyft is one of just a few dermal fillers approved by the FDA for use on the backs of hands. Before getting approved for this application, the injectable had been successfully used to smooth nasolabial folds and add volume to sunken cheeks – other common side effects of aging. Furthermore, the FDA study preceding approval found that Lyft provides patients with lasting volume for up to six months.
As with every other cosmetic procedure, there is a certain group for whom Restylane works best. Luckily, this procedure has a wide net and has been deemed appropriate for patients 22 and older. As the formula is derived from hyaluronic acid rather than a synthetic compound, Lyft is safe and tolerable for many individuals, including those with sensitivities.
