By Dr Tracy Mountford

Dr Mountford MBBS MBCAM qualified in London in 1985, where she initially worked as an anaesthetist before training as a cosmetic medical practitioner.


Non-surgical procedures are quickly gaining in popularity as a means of improving facial appearance by restoring the 3-Dimensional contour of the face without the need for surgery. We can restore volume loss, sculpt the face and cheeks, and hydrate the skin.

As we age the face loses volume, causing us to perceive our face as sagging or drooping.

A simple way to restore this lost volume is using dermal fillers or collagen-stimulating products.

The cheek's nasolabial lines and marionette lines can be treated to generate a lifting effect a look that is instantly rejuvenating attractive and natural in appearance, this is known as The Y Lift.

The Y-Lift is a procedure designed to enhance the normal contour of the cheek and produce a non-surgical lift of the mid-face.

Dr Tracy Mountford is a leading expert in The Y-Lift using Restylane Sub-Q & Juvederm Voluma by the needle. This technique works best in the 40-65-year-old age group. A mid-face-lift and cheek enhancement is achieved with immediate results and very little downtime.

Sara Taylor says;

"I can honestly say that I look better now than I did seven years ago.

The best thing of all is that I still look natural, I just look the best natural me that I can!

Not one person has ever asked me if I've had any treatment and that is all down to the skill of Dr Tracy Mountford and her team."

what is the Y lift treatment

Treatments performed by The Cosmetic Skin Clinic: A number of treatments were performed gradually over a period of time: muscle relaxing treatments for the frown lines and crow's feet, lip enhancement and a small amount of IPL skin rejuvenation to even out the skin tone and texture. Thermage (skin tightening and contouring) to tighten the jawline, plus Restylane Sub Q filler (The Y Lift) to enhance the cheekbones and give a mid-face lift.

Results: A dramatic softening & lifting effect to the mid-face but still leaving Sara looking natural. Lines have been smoothed and the lips subtly enhanced giving a happier' mouth as opposed to the previous sad' look.

 

How effective is the Y lift treatment

Angela says;

"I am totally in awe of the treatments that have been carried out. A sympathetic enhancement process which means I stand closer to my mirror again, without feeling that sense of loss and sadness anymore.   I no longer wake to face a stranger I wake to face the world again My inner happiness and confidence is now radiating out for the world to see. My family are grown and spreading their wings, I took some time to invest in myself. They love seeing me so happy.  Im back out there.  No longer invisible thanks to Tracy and her team. I have my edge back.  The only one regret for me is why I waited so long!"

Treatment Performed by The Cosmetic Skin ClinicRestylane Vital Skin rejuvenation all over her face - plumping up the skin and softening fine lines and wrinkles, Restylane Sub Q (The Y Lift) for cheek enhancement -  to replace volume loss, Restylane Touch - Lipstick lines and Glabella.

Results: A dramatic lifting effect to the face replacing volume loss to the cheeks, restoring a youthful shape and contour to the face and an overall softening of wrinkles using skin rejuvenation, providing deep dermal hydration and moisturising from within to improve the overall tone and health of the skin. Restylane Vital stimulates the production of collagen and elastin to keep the skin looking plump and hydrated which diminishes the appearance of fine crêpey lines in the dermis where it was needed.
