side effects Restylane Lyft
Restylane Lyft can cause minor side effects. These aren’t usually drastic enough to keep you from your normal activities post-treatment, but they can take a few days to clear up. Below are some of the most common side effects:
Restylane may not be safe if you have a history of bleeding disorders. Inflammatory skin conditions, such as eczema and acne, may also be aggravated by this treatment. In addition, you shouldn’t use Restylane if you have allergies to lidocaine or if you smoke.
Rarely, this treatment can cause pigmentation changes, severe swelling, and infection. Call your doctor if you experience any of these symptoms.
Restylane is part of a class of treatments called dermal fillers. These all work to treat wrinkles, but with different active ingredients.
Juvéderm, another hyaluronic acid-containing dermal filler may also be compared with Restylane . They also both contain lidocaine. The primary differences between these two products is that Juvéderm can create results that last longer and are smoother in appearance.
You might talk to your provider about the differences between Restylane and Juvéderm Voluma if you’re interested in adding more volume to the cheek area.
