MYTHBUSTER : What is a Y-Lift?
We've been getting a lot of interest and questions lately from patients asking what is a Y-Lift?  It has been featured on Dr. OZ, The Doctors and The Today Show.  The Y-lift is a term coined to describe a way to give total rejuvenation and lift to the face with facial fillers such as Juvederm and Voluma.  The truth is that the Y-lift is nothing new.  We have been doing this technique for many years with injectables, we have just been calling it facial rejuvenation or volumizing the face. As we age over time, our skin loses elasticity and collagen and our facial skin begins to sag. Facial rejuvenation with fillers, or the Y-Lift, works very well at combating saggy skin on the face and eliminates wrinkles and other signs of old age. It's effective, nonsurgical and requires no down time, no scars, or stitches. 
Botulinum Toxin Injections Improve Depression
Botulinum toxin A, commonly known as Botox, has an antidepressive effect when injected between the eyebrows that continues beyond the cosmetic effects of the injection, according to the results of a new study.
The fact that the antidepressive effect continued after the wrinkles reappeared suggests that the elevated mood isn't just related to cosmetic improvements, which is "profound and unexpected," said study investigator Michelle Magid, MD, clinical associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Texas Southwestern in Austin.
There are 2 possible explanations for the improvement in depressive symptoms, explained Dr. Magid.
The first is that the botulinum injections made it difficult for the subjects to frown. If individuals smile more and frown less, they are likely to have better social experiences, which could lift mood.
The second possibility, favored by Dr. Magid, is a biologic explanation. MRI studies have shown that when people are unable to make angry facial expressions because of botulinum injections to the glabellar region, there is less activity in the amygdala than expected. Such a connection could be mediated by the trigeminal nerve, which links the glabellar region to the brain stem and amygdala and is the control center of anxiety, trauma, and the heightened fear response.
If a person can't frown, the brain does not register a frown, and the amygdala does not get the trigger that the person is upset, Dr. Reichenberg told Medscape Medical News.
