Are you tired of seeing sagging skin and a double chin when you look at yourself in photographs? You can easily correct these aesthetic issues by receiving a Precision TX laser neck lift at Timeless Laser & Skin Care in Westlake, Ohio. This minimally invasive lift will firm your skin and melt away some of the unwanted fat on your neck.
What Can You Expect From the Precision TX Laser Neck Lift?
If you have a double chin or loose skin on your neck, you will probably benefit from using a Precision TX laser neck lift to enhance your profile. Since this type of lift is minimally invasive, you will be very comfortable during your appointment.
A Relaxing Experience
We will start by giving you a sedating medication that will make you feel calm during the next part of your lift. Once the medication has begun to work, we will make very tiny incisions near your ears and under your chin. We will use these incisions to send a special numbing fluid into your tissues. Next, we use a small fiber optic cable to start transmitting laser energy.
This process is minimally invasive, and we won’t make large incisions in your skin or give you general anesthesia during your appointment. As a result, you won’t have visible scars once your tissues have recovered from your lift.
Improving Your Neck
The laser energy will dissolve your extra fat and significantly reduce the visibility of your double chin. Depending on your personal needs, we may use liposuction to remove your dissolved fat. We can accomplish this task by using a hollow tube to suck out your fat cells. In addition to improving your double chin, our laser energy will firm the connective tissues in your neck. It will usually take us less than 90 minutes to complete this aesthetic process.
Beginning Your Recovery Period
Once we have sent laser energy into your tissues, you will be able to leave our office and return to your home. The medication that we provided at the beginning of your appointment may cause you to feel tired or drowsy. As a result, you will need to ask a close friend or relative to drive you back to your house or apartment.
How Will This Laser Treatment Improve My Neck?
Our Precision TX laser will use a unique method to improve the condition of the tissues and decrease unwanted fat in your neck. Many lasers cannot target precise areas on your skin. As a result, these lasers might injure your tissues or create burns. Our Precision TX laser will fix this issue by using a special side-firing method to transmit heat energy in a very controlled manner. This precisely-directed energy will carefully melt away your fat and firm your tissues.
Melting Your Fat
Your fat cells are very sensitive to heat. When we send laser energy into your neck, your tissues will heat up, and some of the fat cells in your double chin will start to melt away. After these cells have dissolved, we can use a special tube to suction them out of your neck.
Firming Your Neck
Our laser will also heat up the collagen fibers in your skin. This process will cause these fibers to become stronger and tighter. In addition, the laser energy will prompt you to begin making extra elastin and collagen proteins during the next several months. These proteins will cause your skin to become thicker and tighter.
Will I Need to Follow Specific Instructions After My Lift Is Complete?
You will need to wear a special garment and take time off from your job after you receive your lift.
Wearing a Compression Garment
We will ask you to wear a special neck garment after your lift is complete. For the initial 96 hours after your appointment, you will need to wear this garment during the day and night. After this time has passed, you will only wear your garment during the nighttime. After two weeks have gone by, you will be able to remove your garment.
Taking Time Off
You should be prepared to take a few days off from your job. The specific length of your recovery period will depend on the type of neck lift that you received. If you have a small amount of fat and minor sagging issues, we are likely to use less invasive techniques during your lift. If you get this type of procedure, you will probably spend two to three days recovering from your lift.
If you are trying to make more significant changes to your neck, you will have a slightly longer recovery period. In general, you should expect to spend five to seven days away from your job or other tasks.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for This Type of Lift?
If you haven’t been able to fix your loose skin with creams and lotions, you will probably be a good candidate for this lift. In general, you will achieve the best result from your laser lift if you have mild or moderate sagging issues. In addition, receiving this type of lift is an ideal way to reduce the amount of extra fat that is located under your chin.
If the skin on your neck is very loose, we may advise you to use an alternative method to address this problem. In addition, you might not be able to receive this lift if your weight is unstable. If you gain a large amount of weight after your lift is complete, you can develop additional fat under your chin. Alternatively, losing a significant amount of weight can cause your skin to sag.
When Will My Loose Skin and Double Chin Improve?
Since the tissues in your skin will take a couple of weeks to respond to this laser lift, you won’t see the benefits of your fat removal right away. Instead, you will notice improvements in your double chin after about two weeks. After about four months, you are likely to see the full effect of your lift’s skin-tightening abilities.
Your lift will improve your ability to produce elastin and collagen for the next six to twelve months. During this time, you should expect to see continued improvements in your neck and jawline.
Can I Use Beauty Products and Other Methods To Extend the Benefits of My Lift?
Although our laser is very powerful, it cannot stop sun damage and other environmental factors from harming your skin in the future. Fortunately, we can recommend beauty products and lifestyle habits that will allow you to enjoy the benefits of your lift for a long time.
Exposing your skin to the sun can cause you to develop lines and other problems at a fairly early point in your life. The sun produces ultraviolet rays that will harm the existing collagen fibers in your tissues. Since the tissues under your chin are thin and delicate, experiencing sun damage will cause the skin in this location to crease and sag.
You can avoid this issue by wearing high-quality sunscreen on your neck. We can recommend a variety of different sunscreens that will reduce your risk of experiencing early sun damage. For example, we offer a water-resistant sunscreen from EltaMD. This sunscreen can protect your neck when you are spending time hiking, skiing, or engaging in other outdoor activities.
Adjusting Your Posture
Spending a large amount of time watching videos, answering texts, or performing other activities on your smartphone can damage the skin in your neck. When you look down at your phone, your skin will crease. Over time, this activity can create noticeable wrinkles in your neck. To avoid this problem, you should hold your phone at eye level and limit your screentime.
Maintaining a Healthy Weight
Your family history will impact your risk of having a noticeable double chin. If your family members have this aesthetic issue, you will have a much higher chance of storing extra fat in this location. In fact, you might have a double chin even if you eat a balanced diet and follow a rigorous exercise program.
In addition to your genes, your weight will affect the condition of your chin and jawline. As your weight increases, you will be more likely to develop a double chin. If you would like to maintain the benefits of your laser neck lift, you should adopt healthy eating habits. In addition, you should try to exercise a couple of times every week.
Following a Beauty Routine
In addition to wearing sunscreen when you go outside, you should use high-quality beauty products to improve the condition of your skin. For example, you can use creams and lotions to moisturize the tissues on your neck.
In addition, you can use exfoliating products to remove your dead skin cells and give your neck a bright, healthy appearance. After we have taken a look at your skin, we can recommend beauty products that will allow you to extend the benefits of your lift.
Can This Laser Treatment Improve My Sweating Issues?
In addition to improving your neck, we can use our Precision TX laser to address excessive sweating problems.
This problem, which is known as hyperhidrosis, can cause the glands in your underarms to create unnecessary amounts of sweat. For example, your underarms might begin to sweat when you are sitting in a cool room inside your house.
If you have hyperhidrosis, you might not be able to improve your sweating with prescription-strength antiperspirants. In addition, medications can cause you to experience vision issues, insomnia, and other problems.
Addressing Your Sweating Problem
We can improve your sweating problem by giving you a quick laser treatment. We will start by using local anesthesia to numb your underarms. Next, we will use our laser to destroy some of the sweat glands in this location.
You are likely to have a noticeable improvement in your sweating challenges after you get a single Precision TX treatment. This cost-effective treatment has the ability to permanently reduce the amount of underarm sweat that you produce.
Refresh Your Appearance
Developing extra fat and sagging skin on your neck will soften your jawline and negatively impact the appearance of your profile. We can remove your unneeded fat and tighten your tissues by providing you with a Precision TX laser neck lift.
