The YFT Approach

I’m beyond grateful. You changed my life. -Francesca

At Clinique YFT, timeless beauty is our highest mission. We aim to create pleasure-driven, practical results targeting each patient’s specific needs. Clinique YFT’s philosophy blends artistry, science, and luxury to help patients achieve natural-looking, refreshed, and radiant skin–a profound transformation that many find truly life-changing. You, Only Better.

With more than twenty years of experience in the aesthetic medicine field, Dr. Yelena Yeretsky has dedicated her life to understanding and applying the best of modern-day medicine, including Botox and other fillers, to support patients in looking–and feeling–like their best, most confident selves. She and her dynamic team provide unparalleled care to each and every patient who walks through the doors of their West Village boutique medspa. Together they devote time to gaining a more comprehensive understanding of every patient’s personal aesthetic, face-skin goals, personality, and overall lifestyle. These factors are integral to developing personalized treatment plans, which emphasize the importance of preventative care and making well-informed decisions when it comes to the art of facial rejuvenation. Dr. Y is a firm believer in treating the whole patient, not simply their face, as beauty is more than skin deep.

Botox at Clinique YFT

Over the past two decades, Botox–a skin-smoothing, non-invasive injectable –has become the gold standard in the improvement of skin appearance, treating fine lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles. Dr. Y, an early adopter, has been part of the leading generation introducing Botox, which is one of the FDA-approved procedures she relies on to achieve radiance and transformation for patients.

Dr. Y has seen first-hand Botox’s proven track record of results. The magic of Botox is its ability to relax the muscles that cause lines, leaving patients with smoother skin and a more youthful, lifted visage. The effects of the neurotoxin are temporary and can last up to four months. Patients who begin using Botox before fine lines and wrinkles become deeper can stave off some of the physical effects of aging. As with all treatments offered at YFT, Dr. Y uses Botox herself, which, in addition to her extensive medical expertise, further enriches her knowledge and understanding of how this treatment can be used to produce remarkable results.

In a confidential, non-judgmental setting, Dr. Y provides patients with customized treatment plans, which may include Botox as one facet of facial rejuvenation. After Dr. Y’s consultation, patients will emerge with a comprehensive understanding of how their skin is aging and the steps they can take to minimize the effects.

I love Dr. Y. With my Botox injections, she used a light touch and
proceeded gently, knowing that I was anxious to have a ‘natural’ look. I am beyond thrilled with the results. Not only are visits thoroughly
enjoyable — Dr. Y has a real joie de vivre — but after I leave, people comment on my skin for weeks following.

Most commonly, Botox is used to treat the glabella, or the double lines that form between the eyebrows. Such lines can be caused by a reduction of collagen, free radical damage, and repeated muscle contractions. Treatment is fast–perfect for busy patients–and works by reducing muscle activity. Based on the patient’s desired results, Dr. Y carefully calculates each patient’s dosage, as well as the different strength and size of the muscles being targeted.

In addition to glabellar folds, Botox can also be used to treat:

  • Forehead lines
  • Nasal flaring
  • Nasal folds
  • Smile lines
  • Smoker’s lines
  • Chin dents

Within 3 to 5 days of a Botox treatment,
patients experience optimal results. You’ll
still look like yourself, but with smooth,
perfect skin.

The Difference Between Botox and Laser Treatments

Many of our patients inquire about the difference between Botox and other non-invasive procedures, such as laser treatments. During your initial consultation, Dr. Y will listen carefully to your concerns and desires and factor that into her treatment recommendations.
