YLIFTYouthful facial contours are shaped like the letter “Y”. The face appears wide at the top in the eye and cheekbone region then narrows to a point at the chin. As we age, the arms of the “Y” shape begin to widen steadily downward. As this widening occurs, the youthful shape of the face begins to disappear and like a balloon, the face deflates and loses volume. The surface that was once taut becomes misshapen, wrinkled and sunken as a result of the aging process.
The YLIFT procedure restores a youthful face shape instantly without incisions, general anesthesia, or downtime.
The YLIFT is a minimally invasive facial contouring procedure, designed to add volume and lift to the cheekbone areas and under eyes areas, give definition to the chin and jawline, and contour the upper neck.
The procedure is performed without making any incisions and without the use of general anesthesia—just a local anesthetic in the specific areas of the face. Patients are fully awake during the entire procedure. The entire process takes about 15-30 minutes to complete and results can be seen immediately after the procedure.
Since this is such a minimally invasive method, there is no downtime involved and the most you can expect after the treatment is some very minor swelling and bruising. In fact, most patients are able to work or go out and resume their daily activities even after just having the procedure done.
As mentioned earlier, the facial bone structure tends to deteriorate and shrink as we get older. As part of the aging process, that natural layer of fat that gives our faces its youthful volume is also gradually lost, thus giving way to tired eyes, sunken and saggy cheeks, and general wrinkling of the skin.
The term “structural volumizing” refers to the replenishment of that lost volume deep within that structure (usually under the muscle) in order to restore a youthful facial contour.
The YLIFT gives structural volume for the lower, mid, and upper parts of the face without surgery. The YLIFT places hyaluronic acid fillers deeper than normal applications, supported by bone and muscle rather than skin, so more volume can be supported.
Since volume is added deep into the areas where it was lost, the youthful and exuberant look that you once had can be achieved again. In fact, the YLIFT works so exceptionally well that it can even enhance your natural facial features. It fills out and emphasizes the cheeks, lifts the eye area, and defines the chin, jawline and upper neck area—all this without even having to go under the knife
