What is a Y Lift?
A Y Lift in Boston, is a non-surgical facelift. Surgical facelifts can be intimidating as the incisions, scarring, and significantly lengthy downtime necessary for a facelift aren’t for everyone. Revive the youthful contour to your face with our nonsurgical facelift techniques with a Y LIFT. Sculpt your facial appearance with no cutting and no general anesthesia. Neem Medical Spa, led by board-certified internal medicine physician Dr. Rosy Sandhu, creates unparalleled beauty with her nonsurgical facelifts. These lifts can be secured in the neck area and along the jawline. The technique can also be modified to treat sagging skin around the eyes, forehead, mid-face, and mouth. In some cases, we may offer the use of thread lifts for the abdomen, arms, and thighs.
Your face will look years younger and rejuvenated. Our patients, men and women who love BOTOX® injections or other cosmetic wrinkle relaxers or fillers, may benefit from this technique as well. We would love to talk to you about this impressive new method. Call today and schedule your consultation in Boston, MA.
How is a Y Lift Performed?
The Y LIFT is performed a little bit differently than the other nonsurgical facelift techniques. It provides similarly stunning results. After injecting the marked treatment areas, Dr. Sandhu will insert a very long, fine needle deeply into your skin (at the cheekbone and the jawline) all the way under the muscle. She will then inject a dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid like JUVÉDERM® or VOLUMA™. Dr. Sandhu will mold and sculpt your facial muscles, fascia, and fat as they are lifted into a more desirable position. The Y LIFT takes her about 30 minutes to perform.
During the first day or so after treatment, you may experience minor swelling or soreness in the treatment area. However, we perform a facial massage a few days after treatment, which often helps with the swelling. Despite these minor side effects, you should be able to return to work and other normal activities immediately following the appointment.
The Y LIFT has become known as the "lunchtime facelift." The secret to the Y LIFT is the careful and precise placement of hyaluronic acid fillers, which lifts and adds volume to the skin to produce a younger appearance. At Neem Medical Spa, Dr. Sandhu is the exclusive provider of Y LIFT treatments. She was personally trained by Dr. Yan Trokel, the creator of this revolutionary procedure, and is the only certified Y LIFT specialist in the Boston, MA area.
"I just recently started going to Dr. Sandhu. I had an issue with a different provider when I got Botox over a year ago. I was gunshy about having it done again. I had a consult with Dr. Sandhu and she did an amazing job. I was very happy and even my husband said I looked "refreshed". I just went back to her again and not only does she do great work, she's lovely as well!"- S.K. / Google / Oct 27, 2023

"Really friendly and knowledgeable staff, very pleasant, convenient, "spa-like" atmosphere. (I've visited both the Winchester and Boston offices.). Dr. Sandhu is a great doctor with great credentials, and I feel very comfortable consulting her about procedures. She's also delightful as a person. I've had terrific results with every procedure. Fran really knows what she's doing with the Morpheus8 Microneedling. She did a very thorough job, and I feel comfortable with her expertise and skill."- M.S. / Google / May 04, 2023
"I’ve been going to Neem Med Spa since 2014 and I absolutely love it and the way my skin looks! I regularly get facials and Dysport every 3 months and have also tried the laser therapy for facial skin improvement (dark spots/sun spots). They always take such great care of me and my friends are very complimentary of my glowing and youthful-looking skin. Recently, I received my second salt facial with Lindsay and she just made me feel so relaxed, rejuvenated and amazing. My skin was glowing and perfect when I walked out! I’m eager to try to some new treatments this year for anti-aging."- S.P. / Yelp / Jan 22, 2023
Am I a Candidate for a Y Lift?
The Y LIFT is ideal for individuals who:
- Want to look younger
- Do not wish to have surgery or the downtime of a conventional facelift
- Have lax skin in the cheeks, neck, or jawline
- Would like to diminish facial folds such as marionette lines and tear troughs
Dr. Sandhu's thread lifts are facial rejuvenation treatments that can be customized to match your personal cosmetic goals. If you want to refresh your facial appearance without surgery, our thread lifts at Neem Medical Spa might be right for you. If you are considering a Y LIFT, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sandhu in order to determine if you are a good candidate.
What Results Can I expect from a Y Lift?
Did you know that the recovery for a traditional facelift typically takes about two weeks (with full recovery up to a year) at times for plastic surgery patients? While the benefits of a traditional facelift include a rewarding and youthful appearance, many men and women stray away from the procedure because of its’ higher cost and recovery time, as well as the pain associated with recovery.
During your consultation, Dr. Sandhu may recommend combining a nonsurgical facelift with our other skin rejuvenation treatments to meet your aesthetic goals, such as:
- Strategically placed dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers
- Nonsurgical skin tightening
- Facial rejuvenation treatments (facials, microdermabrasion, microneedling, and more)
Keep in mind that every patient has his or her own timeline for how the skin responds to the treatment performed. Dr. Sandhu will do her best to help you maintain the look for as long as the treatment allows.
