“I have been getting facial fillers by Dr. Kulbersh for 5 years, and the results always match my expectations. He truly listens to what my desired outcome will look like, and consistently delivers through his expertise.”
As we age, the face loses volume resulting in a loss of definition and sagging the facial skin. This is secondary to the loss of a combination of fat and bone. Restylane Lyft is a facial dermal filler that is used to enhance facial features. It can be used in patients who want to improve their facial balance or have lost volume secondary to the aging process. Restylane Lyft is composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the human body. Our highly trained team, including Dr. Kulbersh, board-certified physician assistant Heather Bryant, and board-certified nurse practitioner Courtney Whitley, safely and effectively uses Restylane Lyft for our patients at Carolina Facial Plastics in Charlotte.
The top aesthetic destination of the south, Carolina Facial Plastics, is led by double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Jonathan Kulbersh. With his team of cosmetic experts, a fully accredited surgery center, and a private recovery retreat all located in the heart of SouthPark, Carolina Facial Plastics is known for unparalleled and natural-looking results exclusively for the face.
When we evaluate a face for facial fillers, we want to maximize the amount of light the face reflects, improve facial definition, and lift sagging facial features. The addition of Restylane Lyft to the face can achieve all of these results. At our Charlotte practice, we use Restylane Lyft to improve facial proportions, allowing patients to look refreshed and appear younger.
Restylane Lyft is a clear gel. It is composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in one’s body. Juvéderm and Restylane Lyft are all made of hyaluronic acid.
Our expert team injects Restylane Lyft safely into multiple areas of the face. There are some locations that require more skill to inject due to the thinness of the skin and surrounding facial structures, such as the eyes or blood vessels. We take all necessary precautions when injecting into these areas to ensure safety and natural results.
The most common areas of the face to use Restylane Lyft include:
- Tear trough or under-eye bags (commonly referred to as a liquid eyelift)
- Jawline (commonly referred to as a liquid necklift)
- Eyebrows (commonly referred to as a liquid browlift)
- Smile lines
Restylane Lyft can be easily reversed. There is an enzyme, hyaluronidase, which instantaneously dissolves the filler. For our Charlotte patients, Restylane Lyft can be easily removed by a simple injection of hyaluronidase, and the face will return to the pre-injection state.
After Restylane Lyft is injected, it is slowly absorbed by the body. The absorption rate will be a little different, depending on the location of the filler and the patient. Areas of the face that move more frequently (the mouth) will dissolve the Restylane Lyft faster than non-mobile areas (temples). Most patients like to have the area re-injected after 60% of the filler has gone away. Depending on the area of the face, this will be every 9-15 months on average.
When considering a medical professional to trust to inject a substance into your face, Dr. Kulbersh recommends choosing an expert. Our team is solely focused on only treatments and rejuvenation of the face and neck. Every member of our team has at least 7 years of experience and has injected thousands of patients. Our specialization and experience matters in ensuring you have a fantastic result. We use the most recent and advanced techniques such as the micro-cannula to limit downtime, improve safety, and create amazing results.

Frequently asked questions
Since most people feel they need injections when 60% of the filler is dissolved, patients will not need the same amount each treatment. If 40% of the filler remains during a repeat treatment, the patient will need less filler to achieve the same result.
At Carolina Facial Plastics, Restylane Lyft is priced out per syringe. Each syringe contains 1ml of product. Double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Kulbersh, Heather, and Courtney perform injections at our office in Charlotte. The price of a syringe of filler at the office will range from $550 to $700. When multiple syringes are used, the sequential syringes cost less than the initial syringe.
The number of syringes injected can depend on the amount of volume loss in the face and the patient’s goals. It can range from 1 syringe to over 20 syringes.
The majority of injectors use needles to inject fillers. Using a needle on the face can be painful, traumatic, and create a bruise. At Carolina Facial Plastics, our team uses a blunt-tipped micro-cannula to inject facial fillers. Since the micro-cannula is blunt at the end, it causes less trauma, resulting in a more comfortable experience and less risk of a bruise for patients.
Restylane Lyft is composed of a naturally occurring substance in the body, and it has an extremely low incidence of a patient becoming allergic to the product. In my experience, I have never seen a patient that was allergic to an HA dermal filler.
Our practice is a leader in injectable fillers in Charlotte. We are currently one of the highest volume injectors of fillers in North and South Carolina.
Of course! To make the experience convenient for patients, we commonly have a consultation and inject on the same day. When scheduling your appointment, please let the receptionist know that you are interested in undergoing treatment the same day. The receptionist can schedule enough time to allow us to perform the injections for you.
