Our skin changes as we age, not only in the face and neck, but also on the hands. The skin loses collagen, elastin, fat volume, and hyaluronic acid, becoming gradually thinner and less firm. Sun, cold, and wind exposure, stress, genetics, and environmental factors can contribute to hands that appear aged or even skeletal in appearance. At Skin Deep MD in Boulder, face or hand rejuvenation treatments with Restylane Lyft are overseen by our acclaimed physician, Dr. Melody Denham to ensure excellent results.
How Does Loss of Volume Affect the Face and Hands?
Natural fat in the face and hands begins to diminish as the years pass. Eventually, this can result in volume loss, sagging skin, and prominent wrinkles and folds. The cheeks become flatter or hollow-looking and laugh lines (nasolabial folds) often appear around the nose and mouth.
Severe volume loss in the hands can make them look older. Veins and tendons become more visible. Restylane Lyft is the only dermal filler approved by the FDA to lift the cheeks, add volume to correct nasolabial folds, and replace lost volume in the hands. When injected by one of our expert aesthetic injectors, the results are exceptionally natural.

What Is Restylane Lyft Technology and How Does It Work?
Restylane Lyft is a dermal filler in a line formulated to restore volume to the skin, acting like the body’s own naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. It uses innovative NASHA© technology, which provides each product with a specific particle size for an individually-tailored treatment. Restylane Lyft contains larger particles for treating moderate to severe wrinkles and adding greater volume.
This state-of-the-art dermal filler contains hyaluronic acid, lidocaine (a local anesthetic), and water. The Restylane Lyft formula injected under the skin creates a plumping effect to add volume and smooth wrinkles and folds. Lidocaine contained in the product allows for more comfortable treatment experience.
How Are Restylane Lyft Injections Performed?
Our skilled aesthetic injector will use a very fine needle to inject Restylane Lyft into the deeper layer of skin in the area that has lost its youthful volume. Most treatments require only about 15 minutes to an hour to perform, depending on the areas requiring treatment, and number of injections required to achieve the most attractive result. A slight pinch is typically the only sensation experienced during treatment.
What Areas Can Be Treated with Restylane Lyft?
Restylane Lyft is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel specially formulated to temporarily replace lost volume in the hands and specific facial zones. It is injected deep into the dermis (the second layer beneath the epidermis) and primarily used to:
- Lift cheeks
- Add volume to the midface region
- Provide a subtle lift to the lower-face
- Smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds
- Add volume to the backs of the hands
How Soon Will I See Results with Restylane Lyft Injections and How Long Will They Last?
Results with Restylane Lyft appear in two areas. The product adds volume to improve the contours of the face and smooth wrinkles and folds with instantly visible improvements. Additional results appear later when the hyaluronic acid in the formula reacts with the skin to attract moisture, keeping the treated area look fresh and youthful.
Our patients at Skin Deep MD experience long-lasting results with this unique dermal filler in Boulder. In a clinical trial, subjects treated with Restylane Lyft reported 95% improvement after two months and 73% improvement in the appearance of the midface region a full 12 months after treatment.
