Restylane Lyft for Cheek Augmentation & Smile Lines, Sculptra, Dysport

Many of the things we do to stay in shape when we’re young begins to impact our face before we reach 40. When we lose weight, the first place it shows is in our faces. There is a natural loss of superficial and deep fat in the face as we age. Yo-yo dieting can reduce the elasticity of the ligaments that support your facial tissues. Without sun protection, the skin breaks down and fat loss becomes more apparent. This lost elasticity and volume contributes to the aging face, hollowed out eyes and flat cheeks.

Hormones change the quality of the fat especially during perimenopause and menopause. The final insult is a natural loss of bone and muscle in the face, which contributes to the appearance of mid-face collapse. Ultimately, without the cheek volume, the skin sags creating jowls and deep lines that run from the corners of your nose to your mouth (smile lines).

Restylane Lyft

Restylane Lyft is a dermal filler specifically designed to add back lost volume to regain fullness and definition in your cheeks without surgery! It is the first and only FDA –approved filler to provide lift to the cheeks and add volume to correct and smooth smile lines. It can create a natural contour to the midface and create a youthful appearance.

It can also enhance your jawline and rejuvenate your sagging neck.

Restylane Lyft is a hyaluronic acid- a naturally occurring sugar in the body that provides fullness by attracting water, just as your natural hyaluronic acid works. Restylane Lyft injected deep into the dermis can correct moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles, and augment the cheeks to correct age-related midface contour loss. Mid-face rejuvenation can take years off of your age. And, it is formulated with an anesthetic to numb the area. The results last from 10-18 months and repeated injections can provide longer term benefits.

Sculptra Aesthetic

Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable to restore and correct lost facial fat by restoring volume. It is made of poly-L lactic acid, a synthetic, biocompatible and biodegradable filler. Many fillers reduce the appearance of wrinkles by filling the space below the wrinkles.

Sculptra is different than other fillers because it works in two ways:

First, it immediately adds volume, and second, it works with your body to stimulate collagen production and replacement. Collagen is the substance that gives your face shape, and gives your skin elasticity and suppleness. As the poly L-lactic acid is absorbed by the body, collagen is being built to restore volume gradually over time.  It is used to fix shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds including smile lines, marionette lines and chin wrinkles. Typically, 3 treatments over 3-4 months achieve the best results, and it lasts up to two years.

To achieve the best results, you need the services of an expert with an artistic eye like

Dr. Glenn Goldberg, a cosmetic dermatologist in Laguna Beach, because Sculptra is molded by hand to create natural contours, and youthful restoration.


Dysport is made with botulinum toxin A and is used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines on the forehead and between the eyebrows. It won’t freeze your face, rather it is injected in only the areas you need, and allows the untreated muscles to behave normally, so that you can show concern, shock and surprise. Improvements will begin to be visible between 2-3 days and it last up to 4 months.

While it behaves like Botox and is just as effective and safe, Dysport is formulated with less proteins in it which means there is less chance of developing antibodies to the toxin, and you are less likely to find that it stops working, as Botox can. The key to achieving your desired results rests on the skill and expertise of the injector.
