Get a Youthful Lift With the New Y LIFT® Posted June 06, 2017 in Non-Surgical Procedures, Procedures for Men, Y-LIFT® When most people think about facial aging, wrinkles typically come to mind first. The next is usually sagging skin. However, the actual shape of the face is a critical piece of the puzzle. Face shape becomes increasingly less defined as aging occurs. Board-certified dermatologist and advanced anti-aging expert Dr. Patrick Bitter, Jr., uses the revolutionary non-surgical Y LIFT® procedure to counteract the effects of aging and produce an instantly youthful lift. Image courtesy of ylift.com Youthful Facial Definition Youthful faces have a more defined “Y” shape than older faces. The arms of the Y-shape are the eyes and cheekbones, and the chin forms the base. However, as volume loss and skin sagging occur, the arms of the Y slowly widen and collapse. This loss of facial definition is a significant contributor to the perception of aging. Structural Volumizing With the Y LIFT® The Y LIFT® addresses the loss of facial definition through structural volumizing. First, Dr. Bitter inserts a specialized titanium instrument beneath the skin. He carefully maneuvers this instrument through the facial regions, providing an immediate lift to the internal muscles, fascia, and fat layer beneath the skin. He then uses hyaluronic acid fillers to hold the tissues in their lifted position. These two steps provide the structural volumizing needed to fill out or enhance the structural support tissues. Finally, Dr. Bitter removes the titanium tube from the treatment site, and the hyaluronic acid remains in place to keep the tissues elevated. Why Choose the Y LIFT®? Dr. Bitter is passionate about providing his patients with the best treatment experience and the most effective anti-aging methods. His decision to offer the Y LIFT® procedure at his practice is based on its many benefits. The Y LIFT® is a minimally invasive procedure that requires no incisions and no anesthesia. Most patients need little or no downtime from their normal activities (with the exception of strenuous exercise). In just 30 minutes, the Y LIFT® produces instantly noticeable results, and best of all, these results last from one to two years. The results of the Y LIFT® have been called miraculous. Not only does the Y LIFT® rejuvenate the facial tissues, but it also sculpts the facial contours to highlight the uniquely attractive characteristics of the individual’s face. Dr. Bitter is excited to offer the Y LIFT® procedure to individuals of all ages who desire youthful facial contours.
