Invasive cosmetic procedures have helped many patients achieve their cosmetic goals, but these surgeries aren’t right or necessary for everyone. That is why our team is proud to offer minimally-invasive alternatives such as PrecisionTx™. With advanced laser technology, we can gently remove pockets of fat while tightening the nearby skin. This technology is an excellent option for those who are struggling with excess skin and fat near the neck.
Doctors and researchers have spent quite a few years studying how medical-grade lasers affect various types of soft tissue. When fat cells are exposed to certain forms of energy, their walls eventually become so weak that they fall apart. This phenomenon makes it much easier to withdraw the fat. PrecisionTx™ is similar to traditional liposuction, but there is only minimal downtime involved, as well as less discomfort after the procedure.
Even though PrecisionTx™ procedures and facelifts can yield similar results, using a laser makes the process much less invasive. Patients don’t need to worry about taking weeks off of work in order to recover from their procedure. By emulsifying the fat before it is removed, there is less bruising, inflammation, and discomfort.
This technology has been approved by the FDA to treat some of the most common blemishes near the neckline, jaw, and chin. Many of our patients have this procedure carried out to help them get rid of loose skin just between the chin and neck. In the weeks following your procedure, the lower half of your face will become firm and toned.
Instead of using a powerful general anesthetic to put you completely under, you are only going to require a topical anesthetic near the treatment site. Once the lower half of your face is completely numb, the fat is emulsified. Most patients feel nothing more than some slight pressure near the treatment area.
In the weeks and months following your procedure, your skin will begin the process of flooding the area with collagen and elastin. As long as you care for your skin and stay within a healthy weight range, the results should last for years.
