The Y Principle: The Shape of Youth

At the core of Y LIFT lies the “Y Principle,” which asserts that youthful facial contours are shaped like the letter Y. When you overlay two Y’s over the face, you can see that the first one spans the eye and cheekbone region, appearing wide at the top, while the second one spans the jawline, narrowing down to a point at the chin. However, as we age, the loss of volume in the face’s foundation, such as bone density, causes the arms of the Y’s to collapse inwards.

The loss of hard tissue leads to sagging and drooping of the soft tissue, leading to jowls, a sagging or droopy upper neck, and marionette lines around the mouth. Y LIFT’s unique methodology reverses this process and restores the lost youthful foundation of the face while enhancing an individual’s natural features. Through specialized instruments and advanced techniques, Y LIFT targets key areas of the face, lifting and rejuvenating them to create a more youthful and radiant appearance.

How Y LIFT Works

Y LIFT is a revolutionary treatment that aims to rebuild the two “Y’s” — the primary facial pillars, including the maxilla (upper Y) and the mandible (lower Y) — responsible for the youthfulness of the face. The treatment focuses on restoring the leading edges™ of the face, including the jawline, highest point of cheekbones, and chin, to achieve natural enhancement without compromising the shape or functionality of the face.

The Y LIFT treatment begins with an anatomically correct, patented measuring device called the flexYguide, which identifies the leading edges of an individual’s face, allowing for a customized treatment tailored to their unique facial structure. Once identified, a blunt titanium cannula is inserted beneath the skin and muscle, creating a pocket between the soft and hard tissues. Next, an FDA and Y LIFT-approved hyaluronic acid-based filler is injected into the pocket, imitating the lost bone and lifting the soft tissues back to their youthful, taut position. This prevents sagging and promotes longevity, as the filler stimulates the body’s natural collagen production. With Y LIFT, you can achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

What Happens During Your Y LIFT Session

During your Y LIFT session, a specialized blunt titanium instrument is carefully inserted beneath the skin and muscle. The instrument is used to lift and separate the muscles, creating a pocket for the FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based filler. The filler is injected into the pocket, where it is held in place by the newly lifted muscle.

Unlike traditional fillers, no needles are used during the Y LIFT treatment. The face is sculpted by hand to achieve natural-looking results that enhance your unique facial structure. The Y LIFT procedure is performed under local anesthesia, ensuring a comfortable and stress-free experience. There’s no pain or discomfort during or after the treatment.

Recovery & Results

After a Y LIFT session, you can resume your normal activities immediately. You may experience mild swelling or bruising, but this usually subsides within a few days. The results typically last 2-4 years, making it a long-lasting treatment that requires minimal maintenance. You can expect immediate improvement in your facial contours. Over time, as the fillers settle into your facial tissues, the results will continue to improve.
