This groundbreaking minimally invasive procedure, marketed online by some as “Laser Neck Lift,” is a brand new neck rejuvenation treatment as of 2013.
Dr. Normand Miller is one of the first surgeons in the New England region to offer Precision Tx® skin tightening of the neck. This procedure utilizes a new, small, side-firing laser developed by Cynosure®, the makers of SmartLipo™ and Cellulaze™. This newest laser has the advantage of being more efficient, direct and precise than previous laser technology in the heating of the tissues, leading to more reliable results and unprecedented safety through real-time temperature control using Thermaguide.
Precision Tx® is an excellent choice for patients who aren’t ready for a traditional, invasive neck lift. The best candidates have mild to moderate fatty tissue and loose skin in the neck and jowls. Severely loose skin is still best treated by traditional plastic surgery; however, you should come in for a consultation with Dr. Miller if you are interested in the Precision Tx® procedure!
Benefits of the Minimally Invasive Neck Lift include:
- Office procedure that takes approximately one hour
- Local anesthesia and light oral sedation
- No long scars—the treatment is done through 3 tiny punctures in the skin, one under each earlobe and one under the chin
- Mild swelling and bruising for only 7-10 days (final tightening takes approximately 6 months)
