Restylane®, Restylane Silk®, and Restylane Lyft®
Luxlift Med Spa in Naples, Fl uses Restylane®, Restylane Silk®, and Restylane Lyft®. These fillers are similar products, but with important differences. Restylane Lyft® is a more highly cross-linked product than Restylane®. Crosslinking is the process that allows these products the ability to persist in the tissue and provide long term benefits. Restylane Silk® lasts less than a year (6-9 months), while Restylane® usually lasts for about a year or more before retreatment is necessary. Restylane Lyft® can last about 4 to 6 months longer than restylane®.
The products look similar but once they are injected, the difference between them is immediately obvious. Restylane Silk® is extremely smooth and soft, and both it and Restylane® flow more readily than Restylane Lyft®. This ability to flow is helpful in the lower eyelid and lip edge where too much fullness is very easy to see after a treatment; Restylane Silk® in particular is ideal for the delicate areas around the lips. As a result, it is important to use a product like Restylane® or Restylane Silk® that holds in the tissue and is not too runny, but at the same time can be manipulated and sculpted at Luxlift Med Spa for a very natural-looking result.

Are There Any Generic Dermal Fillers?
In the words of the Physicians Coalition for Injectable Safety, “if you are offered a “generic” or “cheaper” solution to any U.S. FDA-approved dermal filler, you should refuse.“
There’s a good reason for that: for one thing, the generic version simply may not work as well, iIt may not fill in wrinkles as fully as expected, and even if it does, results may not last as long. In these cases, you’ll soon be back at your aesthetician’s office for another round of treatments — so you’ll end up spending more money than if you’d just stuck to the reputable brand in the first place.
Even more worrisome, cheaper versions of brand-name injectables are often counterfeit and may not be safe. Branded U.S. dermal fillers come with an excellent safety record; non-branded fillers have not been well tested, so it’s unclear what may happen. Risks could include non-uniform results or more serious medical concerns.
These guidelines not only apply to no-name versions of branded dermal fillers, but also to products imported from Europe or other overseas nations. These goods may be held to different standards or approved for different uses than those sold in your home continent, or they may even be fakes. And whatever you do, do not buy dermal fillers over the Internet and attempt to use them at home. You could seriously jeopardize both your appearance and your health.
Things you can do to know that you are receiving a FDA approved filler.
1. Ask to see the syringe as it is being opening from the box.
2. Look for the lot number and the expiration date.
3. Look to see where the box tells you that syringe was manufactured in. The syringe of the filler should be from a U.S. manufacture such as Galderma or Allergen.
