What is Lunch Time Neck Lift treatment?
Lunch Time Neck Lift or otherwise termed as the Mini Neck Shrink Lift by Dr. Thomas Barnes is a nonsurgical, minimally invasive type of the neck lift procedure intended to eliminate skin, fat, and aging problems occurring on the neck or lower chin. It is called Lunch Time Neck Lift since the procedure may take as quick as 30 minutes, there are no surgeries involved, and the healing period is faster than conventional neck and face lifts.
How does Lunch time Neck Lift work?
The area to be treated is first numbed by local anesthesia (general anesthesia may be used depending on the surgeon’s assessment). Afterwards, excess and unwanted fat is eliminated using the SmartLipo laser device. Heat energy coming from the laser will melt down the fat deposits for easier extraction. Such heat energy will also induce the production of new collagen required to tighten up loose skin. It will also smoothen up neck skin contour thereby eliminating neck lines and wrinkles. With such minimally to noninvasive type of treatment, treated body part will heal quickly. For a more severe case of neck skin sagging or looseness, a follow up Thermage skin tightening treatment may be warranted by the patient’s surgeon.
