Restylane® Lyft, (formerly known as Perlane), is an  injectable dermal filler and is formulated with a biocompatible preparation of hyaluronic acid, which means that it is identical in function and structure to the hyaluronic acid your body naturally produces.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a hydrating substance responsible for transferring essential nutrients from your bloodstream to your skin cells, and for adding fullness and structural support to facial tissues that have lost volume or elasticity during the normal aging process. Hyaluronic acid also provides the benefit of transporting water to the surface of skin, rehydrating it, and helping it to remain supple and youthfully smooth.

This young woman came to Dr. Bunin wanting very full lips and had already had her lips filled once. Because she had a very short distance between her nose and upper lip, filling the upper lip would look out of balance. I explained about facial proportions and we decided to give her a little Restylane® Lyft filler in her cheek to widen her face and allow for a better proportion when filling her upper lip. She was thrilled with the results and loves her cheeks as well as her lips. Learn more+


This woman didn’t like the lines and hollows around her mouth and chin area. She had “deflated” in these areas. The bottom picture is immediately after “re-inflating” with dermal filler to the nasolabial folds, the marionette lines, peri-oral and chin areas.


Dr. Bunin used Restylane Lyft to fill the marionette lines (from the corners of the mouth towards the chin) for this patient.
