At Halo Laser & Aesthetic Medicine, we’re proud to offer patients some of the newest developments in cosmetic care, including the advanced Y Lift® Closed Facelift® procedure. Dr. Promila Banerjee specializes in this minimally-invasive facelift alternative to help patients in Chicago, Schaumburg, Evanston and Northbrook, IL, achieve their cosmetic goals.
What is the Y Lift®?
The Y Lift® is a new, revolutionary facelift alternative that is capable of delivering dramatic, age-defying results in less than an hour. The targeted Y Lift® procedure is designed to produce ideal facial contours, which can be described as Y-shaped. The jawline, cheeks and eye region are targeted to enhance these contours, rejuvenating the appearance without requiring extensive surgery or downtime.
What are the Benefits of the Y Lift®?
Compared to the traditional facelift treatment, the Y Lift® offers:
- No anesthesia
- No incisions
- No surgery
- No downtime
- Rapid results
What is the Y Lift® Treatment Like?
The Y Lift® procedure is performed with local anesthesia, ensuring you remain comfortable for the duration of the treatment. During treatment, a special tool is used to lift the muscles and the skin to a more youthful position. Then, hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are injected in the same area, holding the facial muscles and skin in this lifted position. Finally, the dermal filler will be sculpted by hand to produce the desired results and prevent skin sagging. This treatment is completed in less than an hour.
Is There Downtime After a Y Lift® Treatment?
After the Y Lift® procedure, there is no downtime necessary. While you may notice some very minor side effects following treatment, the recovery process is fairly painless. We do recommend that patients sleep on their back and avoid heavy lifting for several days, as this allows the dermal filler to rest into the proper position and produce optimal results. However, patients are able to resume the bulk of their usual activities immediately following treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from My Y Lift®?
The results from the Y Lift® will be visible immediately, and may continue to improve in the days immediately following your procedure. In general, most patients find that their results last one to three years. However, these results can be easily prolonged with additional treatment sessions.
