Each year, hundreds of thousands of people consider getting a facelift. But this treatment is invasive, and requires a lengthy recovery period. If you live near New City, NY and you’d like to experience similar benefits but without having to undergo an operation and spend weeks off work, consider getting a Y lift at BellaTu Medspa in Nyack, NY. This treatment only takes a few minutes, and the results last for several years.
How Long Does the Y Lift Take?
The minimally invasive facelift is based on the concept that your facial features are structured like the letter “Y”. As we grow older, the arms of this Y start to droop, which causes wrinkles and sagging skin and makes us lose our healthy glow. During this lift, the youthful structures of the face are restored, so the patient once again appears bright and fully awake.
A minimally invasive lift usually takes between 30 and 50 minutes, but when you factor in the preparation and recovery, you might spend up to two hours at the clinic. You will be under local anesthetic, so you’ll be conscious while we work on your face. However, you might feel tired after treatment, and we suggest that you bring a friend or family member who can drive you home.
What Happens During Treatment?
With the help of a blunt titanium tool, we will lift your skin and muscles to tighten your tissues. In addition to the mechanical manipulation, we will also apply hyaluronic acid filler to your face, so your skin stays hydrated and smooth for months to come. Because we physically manipulate your tissues to create the desired look, this treatment is easily customizable, and we can take your wishes into consideration.
For many people, the minimally invasive facelift works a lot better than a traditional filler appointment because the hyaluronic acid can be distributed more evenly and into deeper tissues. This allows for a more long-lasting and natural-looking result. What’s more, this treatment is appropriate for people who don’t want injections because no needles are used to insert the HA.
Since your skin and muscles are readjusted during treatment, you will quickly see the results of your minimally invasive facelift. In fact, patients usually walk out of the clinic looking more youthful and refreshed. Over several weeks and months, your results will intensify because the hyaluronic acid will keep your skin hydrated and supple.
You might not need to come back to the clinic for another facelift for the next two to four years. However, the longevity of this treatment depends on your lifestyle and the substances you consume. People who smoke, do drugs, or drink too much alcohol might need treatment again much sooner, while those who eat healthy foods, keep their faces away from direct sunlight, and exercise regularly will look youthful for many years.
The Recovery Period
The reason why many people don’t get a traditional facelift is that the recovery period is lengthy and painful. The minimally invasive option is much easier to fit into a busy life because you won’t have to spend weeks at home. In fact, most patients get up and walk out of the clinic within an hour of treatment. Then, they spend several days recovering at home, and within a week, they are able to resume their normal routine.
If you have a desk job, you can schedule the lift for a Friday afternoon and return to work by Monday. People who have physically active jobs might need to take a few days off. We will speak to you about which activities to avoid immediately after your session.
Getting a Minimally Invasive Facelift in New City, NY
Do you think the minimally invasive facelift could be right for you? If so, reach out to us at BellaTu Medspa. We will invite you to the clinic for a consultation, during which we can discuss your cosmetic concerns, previous treatments you have tried, and your desired results. Before approving you for the lift, we will need to see your medical history to make sure that you are a good candidate.
Since this treatment isn’t very invasive, it’s likely that you are a good candidate even if you have a minor to moderate health concern. However, it’s best to speak to your doctor if you are actively being treated or if you take prescription medications. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding might need to wait until their child is older and their body has recovered from the birth.
Who Is the Best Candidate?
Almost any adult who is worried about their appearance or the negative effects of aging could be a good candidate for the lift. Traditionally, cosmetic interventions were performed on women more often, but in recent years, an increasing number of men have contacted us about treatment. This is because methods like the minimally invasive lift can help male patients of all ages achieve those coveted masculine facial features.
Rejuvenate Your Face Now
After the age of 20, the tissues in our face start to lose some of their elasticity. Over time, we might experience sagging, wrinkling, and hollow cheeks. If you’d like to regain your youthful and smooth features, speak to us about the Y lift, a quick and minimally invasive treatment.
