Sometimes, age and our environment can cause our skin to sag or droop. Simply from the forces of gravity, the skin around your neck and lower face may start to droop and not be as taut and youthful as you would like. There may not be natural ways to remedy this issue because the laxity may be beyond what rejuvenating facial creams can fix.
If your lower face, neck, or jowls have begun to sag, there are surgical options to correct this, including a face lift. However, if you're not interested in a face lift procedure, a laser treatment with Precision TX™ can tighten or raise your skin without having to undergo any type of surgery. To discuss laser treatments with Precision TX™, please contact our Manhattan dermatologist, Dr. Bruce Katz, at JUVA Skin & Laser Center today by calling (212) 688-5882.
How Precision TX™ Works
Using the Precision TX™ Laser allows our New York dermatologist to tighten your skin and jowls in a minimally invasive manner. Precision TX™ tightens the skin in your lower face and neck by penetrating into the deep superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) and encouraging collagen production and skin tightening.
In order to penetrate deep enough into your tissues, the Precision TX™ laser doesn't use radiofrequency energy, ultrasound, or infrared light as many other laser treatments do. Instead, this laser features ThermaGuide™ which allows our dermatologist to determine the exact temperatures to treat your tissues with. ThermaGuide™ gives Dr. Katz real-time control over the temperature of the laser so he doesn't apply too much heat and damage your tissues. By penetrating your tissues with heat, Precision TX™ tightens the skin and stimulates collagen production so your skin has a more plump and youthful appearance.
Benefits of Precision TX™
The Precision TX™ treatment has been nicknamed the "knifeless facelift" because it can give the benefits of a facelift without an invasive procedure that requires general anesthesia and surgery. There are many other benefits of the Precision TX™, including the following:
- Local anesthesia
- Efficient and accurate heating of the tissues
- Reliable and predictable results
- Safer than other laser treatments because of ThermaGuide™ temperature control
- Minimal recovery time
- Tighter skin
- Plumper skin for a youthful appearance
- New collagen formation means long-lasting results
