As our faces age, fat pockets that provide youthful fullness shrink and descend, we lose muscle and bone mass and our skin loses collagen and elasticity. This is part of the process that causes the appearance of an older face particularly around the lower jawline and neck- this can be one of the most visible and detrimental signs of aging.
Previously, these conditions could only be treated with a traditional surgical facelift, an invasive procedure that is expensive and involves significant risk and down time. Now, with new advances in cosmetic technology, we are pleased to be able to offer you a revolutionary, minimally invasive, laser facelift procedure, known as Laser Facelift or Precision TX. The Laser Facelift works by utilizing finely calibrated Nd:YAG 1440-nm wavelength laser energy to precisely target the connective tissue and fat just under the skin. The 1440 nm wavelength is highly absorbed by water and creates a photomechanical effect which causes micro bubbles at the fiber tip.
The Precision TX laser is directional. It can be pointed to heat the fat and then turned so that the underside of the skin receives heat and tightens. Applying laser energy to the fat under the skin melts that fat, reducing the appearance of a double chin and jowls. This melted fat is then removed with a small, safe suction device. By turning the laser head and delivering laser energy to the underside of the skin, natural healing processes are stimulated to immediately tighten the skin as well as continuously improve the texture and structure for several months following your procedure.
Heat stimulated collagen production leads to skin thickening and tissue retraction. A recent study demonstrated 29% increased skin thickness three months post treatment. The result is a remarkably better defined jawline and significant reduction of loose skin under the chin.
