What is a laser facelift?

If you’d like to tighten your aging facial skin, but would prefer a non-surgical approach, you may want to consider a laser facelift. As the demand for less invasive cosmetic treatments continues to increase, the laser facelift has become a popular option to traditional facial cosmetic surgery. But what exactly is a laser facelift, and who is a good candidate.

What is a laser facelift?
A laser facelift is a non-invasive aesthetic treatment that uses laser technology to tighten and lift the skin on the face and neck to leave you looking younger. Lasers can be used to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and also to tighten sagging jowls.

There are various types of laser systems now being used for facial rejuvenation, but the Precision TX by Cynosure is one of the most effective. The Precision TX utilizes the ND: YAG 1440nm wavelength laser, which precisely targets the connective tissue and fat below the surface of the skin. The heat from the laser tightens the skin, and also melts unwanted fat, reducing the appearance of jowls.

Precision TX is a minimally invasive, in-office treatment that is performed under local anesthesia. Treatment time is 60 minutes, and one treatment is all it takes to get optimal results.

Who is a good candidate?
The laser facelift is ideal for men and women with moderate wrinkles and sagging skin, who wish to tighten their jawline and restore youthful contours.It is an excellent option for clients that are not yet ready for plastic surgery.
