What is the Y Lift?
The Y Lift is based on the notion that youthful facial contours are shaped like the letter “Y.”
For example, if you were to superimpose a “Y” over the face you would see that it appears wide at the top spanning the eye and cheekbone region and then narrows down to a point culminating at the chin.
What can the Y Lift do for you?
- Accentuates the cheekbone region & under eye hollowness
- Defines jawline, rids the face of unpleasant jowls
- Significantly improves upper neck area
- Refines lines around the mouth (smile lines)
