Why Does Skin Age?
No matter how frequently you moisturize, wear sunscreen, and stay hydrated, your skin will eventually begin to show the effects of age. A number of factors contribute to aging skin, including external effects like sunlight and smoking, as well as biological changes. The biggest culprit is your body’s gradually slowing production of collagen, the protein that makes up 70% your dermis, and gives it thickness and elasticity. With less collagen production, you will begin to develop wrinkles and thinner skin. The skin may also begin to sag.
What is Precision TX?
Precision TX™ is an advanced, minimally-invasive technique that stimulates collagen production and restores a more youthful appearance to your face. Because it only takes about an hour, does not require surgery, and has such high success rates, many people call it an “instant facelift.” An effective treatment for aging skin, Precision TX™ is best suited for the lower half of the face, including the cheeks, chin, jaw, and neck.
When you receive a Precision TX™ treatment at Mountcastle Plastic Surgery, Dr. Mountcastle will first numb the area of your face that will be treated. He then inserts minuscule laser fibers under the surface of your skin. These lasers cause minimal discomfort. The energy from the lasers stimulates collagen production, melts fat, and triggers tissue coagulation, which in turn makes skin firmer.
After the procedure, you may experience some swelling, but you will already be able to see a noticeable difference in your skin. The full effect of your procedure will not be apparent until a few months after the treatment, at which time you should notice reduced lines and wrinkles, decreased fat in the chin and neck, and greater firmness and elasticity.
