PrecisionTx

Westlake Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery is the first in Austin to offer PrecisionTx.  PrecisionTx is a minimally invasive procedure designed to lift and contour the lower face and neck using laser lipolysis. 

What is PrecisionTx?

PrecisionTx utilizes a precise amount of heat to tighten the skin and stimulate collagen through the use of an extremely small side-emitting laser that was specifically designed for smaller areas such as the face, jowls, and neck.  Designed by the makers of SmartLipo and Cellulaze, the treatment is performed through three small access points hidden beneath the jawline.  Controlled laser energy is applied along the undersurface of the skin, so there are virtually no visual scars after the procedure.  PrecisionTx is performed using local, tumescent anesthesia on-site in our clinic.

Who is PrecisionTx ideal for?

The treatment is most ideal for patients in their 30’s to 50’s with a modest amount of fat and loose skin on their neck.  It is a good option for patients who are not ready for a traditional face lift, but want to achieve contouring of the lower face and neck. 

What kind of results can I expect?

Initial results can be seen a few weeks after the procedure, and results continue to improve over three to six months following treatment. A compression head garment is worn for a few days following the treatment.  Down-time and post-op recovery is significantly less than a traditional surgical facelift or necklift.

Can other areas be treated?

In addition to treatment of the lower face and neck, PrecisionTx can also be used to treat the loose skin above knees.
