At Bella Tu Medspa in Nyack, NY, we know that a facelift isn’t right for everyone. But that doesn’t mean people who don’t want a facelift should have to look their chronological age. That’s why we are excited about the opportunity to provide a non-invasive alternative that is more effective than your run-of-the-mill dermal fillers. Read on to learn more about the Y lift.
How Is the Y Lift Done?
One of the most frequently asked questions we get about the Y lift is regarding how it’s done. This non-invasive, pain-free treatment is much more effective than traditional dermal fillers. Traditional dermal fillers are placed in the soft tissue of the dermis and just below the dermis. As a result, only a little volume can be added to achieve a natural-looking result.
Contrastingly, using the Y lift technique the filler is placed much deeper than the soft tissue. It is injected into the muscle layer and facial bone structure. This means we can add much more filler without the results looking puffy, stretched out, or otherwise unnatural. This is achieved by transmitting the large volume of filler through a blunt cannula.
How Is the Lifting Effect Achieved?
The lifting effect is achieved thanks to the depth at which the cannula is inserted. The insertion point is so deep that the filler itself lifts the soft tissue and achieves overall structural volumizing by adding a significant amount of volume to the hard tissue foundation of the skin.
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
After a thorough initial consultation and physical examination of the structure of your face, we will prep and sanitize the treatment area. Then, we will use a local anesthesia to numb the area so you don’t feel a thing. Next, we use a medical-grade titanium cannula designed specifically for this treatment.
Once inserted past the dermis and muscle, it is manipulated within the targeted area and instantly lifts the skin and contours the underlying muscles and fat. Then, an HA-based filler is released to maintain the enhanced structure. If it doesn’t look quite right, we will manually contour and sculpt the area to ensure the filler is smooth, properly placed, and complements your natural facial structure.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
Because this treatment requires no stitches, incisions, or general anesthesia, anyone can be a good candidate for this treatment. The real question is whether it is the ideal treatment to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
During your initial consultation, we will review your aesthetic goals and facial structure to identify a treatment plan tailored to your unique needs. If you want a pain-free anti-aging treatment that lifts your face for three years without downtime, this is probably the treatment for you.
