What is the PrecisionTx™?
The PrecisionTx™ is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that can be used to tighten skin in sensitive areas. Part of the Cynosure® line of reputable laser products, this treatment can revitalize skin on the face, neck, and jawline in as little as one treatment.
During treatment, radiofrequency energy penetrates through the uppermost layers of the skin and is absorbed by dermal tissue. This 1440 nm wavelength energy damages the skin tissue in a controlled manner, stimulating the production of collagen. Over time, this collagen begins to make the skin tighter, younger-looking, and more luminous than it was before.
In addition to improving the look and feel of the skin on these sensitive areas, the PrecisionTx™ can also be used to address a seldom acknowledged health condition: hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, can have a significant, negative impact on the affected individuals day-to-day quality of life.
The PrecisionTx™ works to combat hyperhidrosis in much the same way that it fights back against aging skin. During treatment, radiofrequency energy causes the tissue of the sweat glands to coagulate and ablate. This damages the glands beyond the point of normal functioning, stopping the patient’s ability to sweat excessively altogether.
How Does PrecisionTx™ Work?
This procedure has two levels associated with it, a specialized laser-assisted liposuction treatment as well as the laser skin tightening. The two levels work together to remove excess fat from the face and tighten the skin around the face in the same appointment.
Laser-assisted lipo targets the fat and melts it, making it easier to suck out. This is in contrast to traditional lipo which is more invasive. Then, with the fat around the face removed, the skin-tightening laser is brought in to tighten the loose skin where the fat previously was. It’s a double-dose of treatment!
Is There any Downtime or Recovery Period?
One of the best parts about the PrecisionTx™ is that after a single, hour-long treatment, patients can achieve dramatic skin tightening results. These changes can be seen immediately, but usually take between 3-6 months to reach their fullest potential.
While downtime is minimal, patients do experience a degree of swelling because of the intensity of the radiofrequency energy. This swelling gradually subsides in the weeks and months following treatment.
