Loose neck skin is a common concern among both men and women who want a sleeker, more well-defined jawline and neck. Not everyone is necessarily ready for a neck lift, however, which is why we offer PrecisionTx—a minimally invasive skin tightening treatment—at our Barrington, IL, practice. This laser skin tightening treatment tones jowls and the area under the chin with little downtime.
Good PrecisionTx Candidates
Men and women concerned that their loose neck skin makes them look older than they are can benefit from PrecisionTx treatments. This approach is especially effective for patients with mild to moderate skin laxity and excess fat under the chin. If you want to avoid the downtime and scars that can accompany a surgical neck lift, PrecisionTx treatment can be a suitable alternative.
How PrecisionTx Works
This innovative treatment uses heat generated by laser energy to stimulate the body’s natural healing process, which produces new collagen. Collagen is essential for having smooth, tighter skin.
Meet Dr. Renee Burke
Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon
Dr. Burke creates exceptional results by combining the skill of an accomplished plastic surgeon with empathy and compassion.
We perform PrecisionTx treatments at our med spa in Barrington. The appointment typically takes about an hour, and most patients get the desired results after only a single treatment. Dr. Burke begins the treatment by numbing the area with a local anesthetic. She then makes tiny incisions and inserts a thin, specialized optic wire that delivers the laser energy with precision. Controlled heat triggers the body to immediately begin producing collagen and elastin. Patients concerned about signs of facial aging may be good candidates for intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments, too.
Patients concerned about signs of facial aging may be good candidates for intense pulsed light (IPL) or Plasma Pen treatments, too.
Recovery and Results
One of the reasons for PrecisionTx’s popularity is that it requires minimal recovery time. You can expect some bruising and swelling, but most patients experience little discomfort. Patients may wear a compression garment on the neck to help minimize swelling. Dr. Burke provides detailed post-procedure instructions that help ensure your recovery goes smoothly.
Because the treatment involves the production of new collagen and elastin, the results emerge gradually. You’ll see some immediate changes, but it can take 3 to 6 months before you’ll notice complete results. Even though the aging process continues, you can expect the new contours of your neck to last for years.
