Lateral Lift

A Lateral Lift with Advanced Dermal Fillers is one of the most effective and noticeable treatments to start your journey to anti-aging and is now available at Yaletown Laser Centre.

How Does A Lateral Lift Work?

Over time, the body naturally loses volume and begins to deplete. This can cause a faded and tired look and also contribute to sagging in the jowl and cheek area, deep and sometimes heavy folds around the side of the mouth and in many cases a much less defined jawline.

A Lateral Lift is a natural, global approach to Facial Rejuvenation. Not only will a Lateral Lift tighten your jowls but will redefine your jawline for a more sculpted appearance. This unique and advanced technique uses Facial Fillers to help restore lost volume and lifts and tightens the sagging jowl area.

Facial fillers work thanks to a clear, pure non-animal based gel called Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in our bodies. This amazing substance has the ability to bind and attract water which helps retain volume and plays an important role in the replenished and lifted shape of your facial features.

Benefits of our sagging jowl treatment include:

  • Revitalizes & Lifts Jowls and Deep Mouth Lines*
  • Minimal Downtime & Low Maintenance*
  • Safe, Natural & Long Lasting Results*

*Individual results may vary

Am I A Good Candidate For A Lateral Lift?

You’re a good candidate for a lateral lift if you have noticeable jowl sagging and need a treatment to correct this sagging. 

Filler Enhancements are not recommended for pregnant or breast-feeding women, patients with any autoimmune diseases or disorders, sensitivity to hyaluronic acid or local anesthetic. It is important that you inform us if you regularly take any aspirin, anti-inflammatories or anticoagulants during your consultation.

How Long Does A Typical Treatment Take?

A typical lateral lift treatment takes about 30 to 45 minutes to perform, depending on the patient. We always do our best to minimize any discomfort during your treatment. We start by applying a topical cream, which helps to numb the skin in the area we are treating. 

The products also contain a local anesthetic, which helps immensely with sensitivity as well as icing the area. These in combination with our experienced and gentle touch helps create a positive and comforting experience.

What Results Will I See?*

Our advanced injection techniques can lift and re-contour the cheekbones and lift the skin laterally, dramatically reducing the appearance of jowls around the mouth. We understand the importance of avoiding the “overdone” and “puffy” look. Cheeks that are too full in the apple area can make your eyes look sunken and small. Our doctor will correct things laterally to ensure your eyes and face are highlighted and naturally balanced.

You can expect to feel lifted and rejuvenated after your first visit and the benefits of this treatment will continue over time. Two to six weeks after your first visit, water will come and join the product to enhance further hydration and rejuvenation in the skin creating a smooth and radiant look. With our global approach to Facial Fillers, many patients express exponential results with consecutive visits.*

Is There Any Downtime?

Swelling and bruising vary by each individual. It is normal to have some swelling and a general “tight” feeling after the treatment. Bruising can happen and we do recommend pre and post-treatment homeopathic arnica which helps reduce the risk.* We recommend not consuming Asprin, anti-inflammatories, fish oils, alcohol, and other blood-thinning agents to also reduce bruising. Mineral makeup can be applied to cover treated areas.
