What is the Y Method of Facial Fillers to Lift the Face?

Y Injection Method of Fillers

Fillers can be injected in multiple ways, different sizes of needles, different length of needles, different types of needles (sharp vs blunt).  Additionally, the filler can be injected in a linear fashion or in depot type method.  Each injector has their own methods which they have works the best for them.  I chose to use and "S" type injection using a flexible blunt cannula.  I have found that this matches the natural curvature of the face, reduces the incidence of bruising and gives a slight lifting effect.  However, no one method is applicable to all patients, so the technique, needles, filler product, etc needs to be customized to each patient's needs.


Good Luck.
