Dr. Gabriel Patino of The Cosmetic Surgical Center of El Cerrito recommends Restylane® Lyft for men and women who look older due to lost or poor volume in the cheek area. Adding fullness to your cheeks gives you a refreshed and balanced appearance. A member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Patino is highly regarded by his colleagues and the patients he treats and delivers amazing results for his patients in Oakland, Berkeley, and the surrounding areas of California.
What is Restylane® Lyft?
Restylane® Lyft is an FDA-approved injectable treatment for adding volume to the cheek area. Your cheeks can lose fullness as you get older, and some people are born with cheek areas that are poorly defined. Cheek volume plays a key role in attractiveness and youthfulness. The cheeks balance other features and create highlights and shadows on the face. Adding volume to the cheeks of older patients softens certain signs of aging as well.
How Much Does Restylane® Lyft Cost?
Restylane® Lyft and other skin rejuvenation treatments are considered elective, so your insurance will not cover the procedures. You are responsible for the cost, and we want to make the procedures as affordable as possible. The Cosmetic Surgical Center of El Cerrito offers financing options through American HealthCare and CareCredit®. Please contact our office if you would like to discuss financing. We also accept cash, personal checks, and credit cards as forms of payment.
Benefits of Restylane® Lyft
With Restylane® Lyft injections, you:
- Have no downtime
- See immediate results
- Have fewer moderate to severe wrinkles and folds
- Enjoy the results for approximately one year
How is Restylane® Lyft Administered?
Dr. Patino is an experienced Restylane® Lyft provider who has an exceptional reputation for producing superb results with the treatment. The best results are achieved when the product is injected across the mid-face area to restore and enhance the natural cheek contours. He uses a very fine needle and administers a small amount with each injection, slowly working his way across the treatment area.
Preparing for a Restylane® Lyft Treatment
Restylane® Lyft contains hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that is abundant in young skin. HA adds volume by binding with water to give the skin a full, hydrated, glowing appearance. Although the treatment helps with many common problems caused by the aging process, it may not be the best option for you. If you are interested in Restylane® Lyft, the best place to start is with a consultation. Dr. Patino will evaluate your skin and facial structure to determine the best way to help you look younger.
Is Restylane® Lyft Right for Me?
Moderate to severe wrinkles and folds can be treated with Restylane® Lyft, but you may also need other injectable products, skin rejuvenation treatments and possibly even surgery to look your absolute best. Dr. Patino will help you decide on the best option during your consultation appointment.
What to Expect During Your Consultation

It is also important that you express your goals for the treatment and the appearance you are hoping to achieve. Dr. Patino will be honest about what Restylane® Lyft injections can do for you.
