Everyone talks about how certain things on the skin, like wrinkles and age spots, can make us look older, but did you know that the shape of your face can as well? Sagging and loss of volume both contribute to aging the face. Previously, the only choice was to have an extensive surgery. Now, advances in medicine and science have given us the Y Lift®, a non-surgical method of restoring the contours of the face back to a more youthful look.
What Is the Y Lift®?
This procedure aims to restore the natural “Y” shape of the face, which is where the name comes from. The Y Lift® uses hyaluronic acid-based fillers. What is great about these fillers is that they add immediate volume and then continue to attract water to the area, making your results relatively long-lasting. The Y Lift® is often referred to as a closed facelift.
What to Expect with the Y Lift®
When you decide to have this treatment, the first step is to come in for a consultation. We will study the natural contours of your face and determine the best possible treatment plan for you. The procedure itself is minimally-invasive. Treatment times are typically short, so most of patients are able to schedule this treatment over their lunch break. When you come in for your consultation our educated staff will be able to provide you with more information, including what the recovery process like.
Your Results with the Y Lift®
Many things can be accomplished using this procedure. Your jawline can become more defined while your cheekbones are also accentuated. The appearance of the upper neck is improved and jowls can be eliminated. Many patients also notice a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles around their mouth after this treatment.
The improvements from the Y Lift® can last anywhere from two to three years, much longer than other dermal fillers procedures on the market. How long they last for you will depend on how quickly your body metabolizes the filler. When results begin to fade, touch-up treatments can be done. One of the things people love about this treatment is that the results are instant. You can walk out of the office looking years younger than when you walked in.
