How Long Does a Laser Facelift Take?
January 24, 2017
Let’s face it: You love the idea of getting a facelift. After all, who doesn’t want to enjoy tighter-looking skin, fewer wrinkles, and a well-defined jawline that takes years off their appearance?
But a traditional facelift is a real surgery that may take some time for recovery. There are incisions with stitches, swelling and bruising.
Is there another way to get the younger, tighter, and more revitalized appearance you’re looking for?
It’s time to consider the Precision TX™ Laser Facelift procedure at The Langdon Center for Laser & Cosmetic Surgery in Guilford, CT. Board-Certified Cosmetic Surgeon and founder, Dr. Robert Langdon, is pleased to offer the Precision TX™ Laser Facelift to patients who are looking to do the following:
- Smooth out fine lines and wrinkles
- Tighten skin around the neck and lower face
- Reduce the appearance of “turkey neck” to improve profile
- Decrease sagging around jowls and restore a more defined jawline
The Precision TX™ Laser Facelift uses Nd:YAG 1440-nm wavelength laser energy to directly target fat and connective tissue beneath the skin. This laser energy heats and liquefies the fat layers, which are then reduced by liposuction of the neck and jowl areas.
In addition to liquefying fat, the Precision TX™ Laser Facelift heats and stimulates collagen production, which promotes an instant skin-tightening effect. Over time, the heating process continues to stimulate long-term collagen production for results that last. This heating effect can lead to tighter, thicker, and firmer-looking skin. In fact, a recent study has shown that the Precision TX™ Laser Facelift procedure can result in 29% skin thickening in the treated area.
Think that all this will take hours to perform? Think again — the procedure typically takes under 2 hours to perform in-office, followed by a relatively short downtime.
Dr. Langdon and all of his nurses and staff are very friendly and they know how to make you feel very comfortable. He is a very experienced doctor, I call him an artistic dr. because he’s so precise in his work. If you would like something done right, dr. Langdon is the one to see. I am very pleased with my results and very grateful for him and his staff being here in Ct.
