Dr. Rousso – Blog The Benefits of Facial Contouring The older we become, the more it shows in our facial
The natural signs of aging can make any person feel like their beauty is slowly slipping away. Facial imperfections like wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin not only affect the upper portion of the face, but they can also occur below the chin. Neck lift surgery is known to address these specific issues. While some people prefer this method, other patients find themselves staying away from extensive surgeries for fear of the pain and the long recovery time they may have to endure. Fortunately, Dr. Rousso can provide his patients with a safe alternative. Acculift™, also known as Accusculpt™, is a non-surgical treatment that tightens and repairs muscle laxity while removing excess skin to restore youthfulness to the neck.
- Smooth, firm skin
- Tighter neckline muscles
- Natural, long-lasting results
- Increased confidence
Patients interested in our Acculift™ treatment should be non-smokers and in good health. Most candidates also struggle with loose and sagging skin along their neck. Dr. Rousso will examine the condition of your neck and jawline to determine if Acculift™ is the right option for you.
How It Works
Acculift™ is performed on an outpatient basis and uses highly concentrated laser energy to safely melt away any excess fat deposits from the target area. Once the fat has been melted away, it can be removed using either a cannula or through natural absorption from your body. The energy from the Acculift™ device will also firm, tone, and tighten the drooping skin tissue on your neck and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines.
Unlike traditional neck lift surgery where patients need to take a few weeks to recover, Acculift™ is a short and comfortable treatment with minimal downtime. You will be able to return to work the day after your treatment. Swelling and bruising may occur but should resolve within a few hours.
Acculift™ will provide you with long-lasting results in just one treatment. Not only will your neck be more smooth, but it will also be sculpted to a more aesthetically pleasing contour to balance your facial appearance.
