Lately, the entire cosmetic enhancement world appears to be ALL about the injections. With a few stings of a needle, lost volume can be restored, cheekbones curved + enlarged, wrinkles + folds smoothed away, etc.
That's why folks are talking about the Y-Lift facelift, a more sophisticated filler session.
We knew immediately what this beauty treatment was ALL about.
Consider the letter "Y.".Look at the shape of the letter itself---width at top, narrowness at bottom.
The widest portion of the face should begin at the forehead and/or cheekbones heading down to the narrowest part of the face, which should ideally end with the chin.
And what the Y-Lift aims to do, is just that---give the patient more youthful facial contours WITHOUT the surgery + major down-time.
We guess this could be called the minimally invasive facelift of 2015.
So the procedure still consists of facial filler, but it's done in a more artfully + precise manner, if we are to believe all the beauty hype.
We learned more about it here at the Y-Lift.com website.
The Y LIFT® procedure is performed using a specialized titanium instrument which is inserted beneath the skin and then maneuvered throughout designated parts of the facial region to instantly lift and contour the muscles, fascia and fat underlying the skin. Once lifted, hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally present in the skin is used to hold the newly elevated position in place at which point the titanium tube is removed from the treatment site. The rejuvenated face is then “sculpted” to accent and highlight each individual’s beauty.
No one enjoys going UNDER the knife for ANY type of surgery, especially when it comes to plastic surgery.
At least the Y-Lift offers an alternative with nice-looking results WITHOUT the anesthesia, incisions + stitches.
The cost of a Y-Lift varies from location to location but generally runs between $3,000 and $7,000.
So...is this newest beauty procedure for 2015 worth the money spent?
