Give your look a Lyft with RestylaneDr. Jeanine Downie always shares with her patients that you begin to lose a teaspoon of volume from the face each year from the time you turn 30. One day when you are in your late 30s, 40s, or 50s you may look in the mirror and see your mother! The best time to talk with a dermatologist is the minute these facial changes become noticeable. Dr. Downie and her aesthetic team at image Dermatology ® P.C. in Montclair, New Jersey specialize in customized programs to help each patient maintain a natural, youthful appearance. Your unique strategy may include Restylane Lyft.
Understanding dermal fillersDr. Downie, a Board-certified dermatologist, has helped thousands (including herself) turn back the hands of time with dermal fillers. She has more than 19 years of experience with fillers.
Many patients who feel invasive facelift surgery is their only solution just need to add volume to look years younger. Dr. Downie often recommends Restylane Lyft, an injectable dermal filler. She uses fillers regularly on her own face to enjoy a natural-looking, revitalized appearance. She was involved in the original clinical trials as an investigator for several products and has included them in her practice since their FDA approval.
What to expect from treatment
Dr. Downie begins by gently cleansing your face to remove all traces of make-up. She listens to your goals as you indicate areas of concern. She is adept at analyzing facial animation while you talk so she knows precisely where to use fillers.
One of Dr. Downie's favorite areas to treat is under the eyes, to address hollows and dark circles. Both male and female patients look rejuvenated. This is one of the most popular procedures performed at image Dermatology ® P.C.
Depending on the number of syringes used, a session usually takes about 15 minutes.
What you should know before treatmentRestylane Lyft, formerly known as Perlane-L, is an injectable hyaluronic acid filler approved by the FDA to add volume and lift the cheeks, to smooth smile lines (nasolabial folds). This synthetic, non-animal substance replicates chemical compounds that already exist in the body, so there is little risk of allergic reaction. Side effects may include mild bruising and swelling at injection sites, but it is minor and resolves quickly. As with any medical procedure, depending on your unique physiology, there is the possibility of more serious complications like persistent bruising, secondary infection, or migration of filler. These side effects are rare, and we take every precaution to ensure your wellbeing.
